The beers here are tasty and I even took home a growler after stopping by for a Pale ale. The old time wooden bar and nooks and crannies in this place gives it a kind of charm. Half pub, half restaurant and all worthwhile. Next time I will make sure to visit longer

Such a friendly and inviting place for dinner. We sat outside on a nice fall evening and were promptly greeted and served. The beer was quite good and the food was amazing. The beer cheese is one of my absolute favorites! Other guests seemed to be having a good relaxing time as well. I would recommend this place as a... More

It had been several years since my last visit to the Broad Ripple Brew Pub, but it was just as cozy as ever. There's lots of seating inside and out. Four of our group rode down in the Monon Trail from both Fishers and Carmel (I drove down-parking is a challenge as it can be at any of the neighborhood... More

A Broad Ripple fixture since the 80s, good food, broad menu, and of course, excellent beer. Never had a problem here.

Started off with the Lawn Snake: a mix of Lawn Mower ale and pear cider with lime juice. Dinner was the vegan portabella wrap. Great music, calm atmosphere.

I would definitely return to the Brew Pub. We went for lunch and my companion was thrilled with the vegetarian selection. My lunch was chosen from a large selection (not vegetarian) and was delicious. They serve local sodas from the fountain with refills and what I had was delicious. We didn't try beer but they do brew their own brand... More

This was a brew pub long before they became so prevalent. Their beer is still very good and they serve maybe the best bloody mary in town. Food is good and service quite adequate even when they are busy which they often are in the evenings.

This was a great place for dinner. There were vegan, vegetarian and omnivore selections on the menu. Eating outside was nice and the Lawnmower Pale Ale was excellent. I had the Edamame burger and my daughter had Vegan Fish & Chips. Both entrees were delicious.

For the appetizer, we ordered the Bavarian pretzel with mustard. This pretzel was actually almost petrified in the middle (my husband had to really put some effort in to break it in half) while in other parts it was soft, but very inedible. We had the fried ravioli...and some of them were empty in the middle....and fish & chips...where the... More

I've been to Indiana many times but never this charming Broad Ripple neighborhood. While visiting, my friend suggested we try out one of her favorite spots. Everything was excellent. The service was very prompt, the drinks were always filled, and the food was delicious. I had the veggie tacos which were very good but also very filling. You could easily... More
