Found the Best Restaurant in Indianapolis!!! This is a hidden diamond. My wife had the Hickory Salmon. I had the Thick cut bone in Pork Chop. Salad and roasted vegetable medley was perfect balance for our meals. Dessert - excellent chocolate lava cake with ice cream and whipped cream. A nice bottle of Malbec from Argentina also enjoyed. All this... More

I love Broad Ripple and Fire by The Monon is one the places that contributed the appeal! Quaint, outside patio and good food with craft beer.

Felt very well taken care of by the hostessing and wait staff. Low noise in back dining area- easy to have conversation. Chairs are a little uncomfortable. Some food seemed bland- couldn't distinguish garlic in the Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Fish & Chips and Sweet Potato Fries didn't have much flavor. Fried foods were more oil sodden than crisp. Fish Tacos... More

Had lunch here with friends, not very busy at Noon for a Saturday, not very noisy either. We ordered the flatbread. The pull-pork BBQ flatbread was delicious. I also had the Carnivorous flatbread, loved the pull-pork but was not a fan of the pepperoni. The service was great!

Good dinner, interesting menu, fabulous wait staff! Very child -friendly. The pulled pork nacho appetizer was fantastic. I also enjoyed the Monon Mule cocktail.

Lunch with my wife. We split a small salad and tenderloin and it was a good thing we did because the tenderloin is enormous. We cut it in half and it was still too big for the bun, so there was another half left even after we split the sandwich. Not only big, but very good. We had the sweet... More

We were seated quickly and greeted pleasantly. My boyfriend requested no mayo on his burger. The waitress wrote it down but the kitchen missed that. The mac n cheese was super salty. The burger was ok, not impressive or bad. The staff was nice and food came out quickly.

We have had many gatherings at Fire and have never been disappointed. The food is always high quality. The wait staff are always nice and the service is fast. We love the fried green tomatoes, the berry fresh salad and the pulled pork flatbread or nachos. There is a lot of outdoor seating that isn't on a busy road! It... More

Located next to the Monon, just north of Broad Ripple Ave, FBTM was thoroughly enjoyable. Kids were famished so we got some large pretzels with a delicious cheesy dip. After ordering some drinks, including a Two Deep Amber Ale, we had a couple of Margerita flatbreads, fish tacos, bacon cheese burger and a monstrous pork tenderloin sandwich. All orders were...
