Didn't have the brews. We had the burger with pulled pork and the nacho appetizer, and they were both fantastic. Very filling. Not as ideal for kids, and not inexpensive.

The burgers are ok. Had the Mexican one which was good, didnt like the Provencal one. Service is also ok. For the price I think its worth a visit.

Since I have only had their burgers and salads I can’t talk about the rest of the menu. However, the Bru Burger is great and I believe, as an expert on Patty Melts, they have the best in town. Their salads are a good size...More

This is the first time I have ever eaten at the bar. The music was too loud to hear conversation. The seats were uncomfortable. The service seems to be better at the bar than at tables. Who knew? I had the Memphis BBQ melt. There...More

We visited Bru Burger on the recommendation of an Indy local. Excellent burgers!!! Very generous portions. I recommend the snack burger for smaller appetites. Still 1/4 pound of beef! In addition to 'The Snack' burger, our group had 'The Bourbon', 'The Mexicali' & 'The BBQ'...More

I have no idea. I assume if you call them they will happily sell you one. I think they are part of the Cunningham group which is quite large. The gift certificate would probably work at any of their restaurants. karen

As long as you're willing to walk a 2 or 3 blocks you can usually find metered parking on a street or a small lot around the area. Sometimes there's a cost, sometimes not as it depends on the day or time of day.
