Typical bar with typical bar food offerings. We just stopped by for a late-night snack of hot wings, fried mushrooms and beer. They were fine. Just fine. Our server was great, but the local dive is probably not the place we will enjoy again. I'm sad to say that it just did not live up the billing and research that... More

We have been to this place a few times now, since it's close to our house. Everything we tried on the menu was very good and tasty. Good staff and friendly service. Food arrives fast and everything is fresh and hot.

Sits in downtown Fishers right on the old Nickel Plate Railroad. The glassed in patio is very cozy and the service is fast. Good place for sandwich and reasonably priced.

They have a varied menu, though it never changes. The servers are very friendly and attentive. The food is very good. There are very few healthy choices. The bar area is very loud. The "porch" area is very pleasant seating when weather permits.

As Fishers grows and the downtown area changes dramatically, The Nickel Plate can be counted on to deliver the same satisfying bar food that they always have.

My favorite dish here are the chicken fingers. They are always deliciously breaded & the meat is very juicy. Served with fries that are good too, the side salad adds the perfect touch for me. The honey mustard sauce for the chicken is the absolute best I've ever tasted anywhere. Iced tea was good too. Service at the bar was... More

This is THE iconic bar in the heart of Fishers. It is named after the Nickel Plate Railroad whose tracks are adjacent. We've eaten lunch here a few times in the past several years. We try to go during off hours as otherwise it is very busy and hard to find a place to park or get seated. We don't... More

LOVE THIS LITTLE PLACE! Great atmosphere, great food, and exciting place to watch a game no doubt! They may or may not be a bit partial to the steelers but I am totally good with that because that's my home team! Definitely need to check it out if in Fishers, IN. You won't be disappointed ;)

We stopped in with friends and the food was wonderful! We all had breaded tenderloins but with different sides. All were awesome. The service was great and we will definitely be back!
