My co-worker and I shared four appetizer plates - and each was just perfect. We had the seared tuna, the steak sliders, scallops, and mahi tacos. The moscow mules were consistent between pours and ice cold. Comfortable outdoor seating and super friendly staff round out...More

Good burgers, side dishes, some good entrees, and the Malibu has never failed to please as long as you remember it's not a high dollar joint. I recommend it and have been going there for 30 years.

I ate here with my son and his friend who were visiting IU. It is a varied menu, the food was good, and the wait staff friendly. It is reasonably priced.

Thought we would give it another chance since students are on spring break. But fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice I just got screwed. $65 for two of the worse cuts of meat ever and mediocre mashed potatoes and bland broccoli. I've...More

If you want a romantic dinner this is not the place. They have decent food but the atmosphere is noisy. Nice place to have a meal and watch an IU game. The servers are friendly. Had the seared tuna for appetizer and the teriyaki chicken...More

The restaurant is pretty flat to get into, so I think it would be fairly easy to navigate. Paid parking is along the road and around the courthouse square, with cross-walk lights.
