Wings were outstanding. Beer selection was large and varied. Staff was attentive and helpful. We tried four different types of wings and none were disappointing. Wish I lived here so I could get these wings all the time. The beer was also terrific with lots of craft beer choices. Highly recommend.

The food was great and came out quickly!! The restaurant is a bit loud, but fun for watching a game and hanging with friends and family!!! Two of the three in our party ordered the wings and both said they were great and unique!! I ordered a spinach salad and it was very fresh and was actually a healthy salad!... More

Called ahead, asked for my wings to simply be baked, Mgr Diane assured me shecwould speak to the owner and guaranteed a call back. Never got a call back, sat with friends who can eat the sodium in reg food, left early, plus no purified water, just spring which has salt. No call back, the attitude was that if you... More

I had stromboli sandwich made with chicken. Was really good. Came with side but sandwich was so good and large enough I didn't need the sides. Also the fried pickles are awesome. I want to go back and try the pizza. Had really great selection of beers too.

If you have a chance to be on the northside of Indianapolis and are over the age of 21 (as minors are not allowed) hit the Ale Emporium. The deep dish is REALLY good and for a good price, the beer selection is always good and has a wide variety. If pizza isn't your thing, try their boneless chicken wings.... More

Had burgers and beers with friends which watching the World Series. TV screens cover the walls with multiple events visible from any table. The burgers are very good as are the fries. Great selection of beers with something to suit every taste. The crowds can get noisy since everyone is watching the games. Great spot to take in the local... More

If you are in a hurry, go with the wings. Burgers 🍔 came out slow. Soup was lukewarm but good. Not that busy in dining room but the staff was slow greeting, taking orders & delivering food. Dinner steak special on Tuesday nights, however, is very good.
