Food is fantastic. Fish and chips to shepherds pie. Well presented and service is excellent. If you have never been there expect to leave as friends. The staff has little turnover and soon they feel like family. For college kids to middle age people it is fun and entertaining. I highly recommend the best Irish bar in the area

We had a small gathering of four people and we went for food and Irish draft beer. They serve traditional Irish Pub food, with some fun variations from the norm. Warm, friendly atmosphere.

I love going to this pub--many good beers to choose from and the food is good pub food. Some of the best fish and chips around. Loud, so sometimes difficult to talk. Only downside is that it's always crowded and hard to get tables for more than 4 at a time. Might be the most popular place in town.

Each year when I attend the Big Ten Grad Expo I try to dine here. The food is great, and it is a fun atmosphere. There are flat panels for the sports fans. I highly recommend dining here!

Ok, the food isn't awesome but this is a nice, fun place to go for a meal. Portions are huge. I can't imagine anyone finishing the fish and chips. Good bar scene and pretty broad set of beer.

The experience was meh. They have a fine location and patio. The food was ok. I had a chicken dish that came highly recommended by the waitress the name of which escapes me. Basically a dry chicken breast smothered in a sauce that was tasty, served with days old mashed potatoes and frozen vegetables... you know the ones....better cafeteria green... More

This was a nice place to meet up with colleagues. We ate a few appetizers and then each ordered a dinner dish. It's a fun atmosphere that reminds you of being in Ireland. Food was good. It's a fun, laid back place to meet up.

Great Irish Pub at 119 Howard Ave (at N River Road). Live music, nice outdoor patio, and great food. Tiger Mike's Fish & Chips was excellent. Good selection of beers.

Thank Chris N

Nine Irish Brothers is an award-winning traditional Irish pub--recently named the Best Irish Pub in the State of Indiana by Yelp and Buzzfeed--with two convenient locations in Greater Lafayette, Indiana, and a third location in the heart of Massachusetts Avenue in Indianapolis. Our family-owned-and-operated restaurant serves premium Irish food and spirits and has a full bar and menu, with items ranging from salads to steak to Irish favorites such as Guinness Stew, Shepherd's Pie, and Fish & Chips. Well-behaved patrons of all ages are welcome from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., unless circumstances prohibit minors (e.g. large, rowdy bands). Nine Irish Brothers is proud to be smoke-free. We also feature live Irish entertainment on most weekend nights. We take reservations for parties of six or more people.
