Description: Bluebeard is a restaurant and bar located in the historic Holy Rosary Neighborhood on the southeast edge of downtown Indianapolis. Abbi Merriss has joined up with longtime friends Tom and Eddie Battista to create a unique food-focused experience. The menu offers contemporary American cuisine featuring the best local produce and meat our farms have to offer. The space, a renovated 1924 factory warehouse, features a family dining room, a bar room, a private dining room, an upstairs event space, and a courtyard. Our menu varies daily – inspired by the freshest and finest ingredients. We believe food is meant for sharing, and these are the local farmers who have shared their ingredients with us: Big City Farms, Butler Campus Farms, Crossroad Vintners, FarmIndy, Fischer Farm, Full Hand Farm, Growing Places Indy, Gunthorp Farms, Harvestland, Josh Horrigan, Smoking Goose Meatery, South Circle Farm, Traders Point Creamery, and Viking Lamb.

We ate scallops out on the patio. Admittedly, it was a lovely evening anyway, but the patio was a perfect place to have a really good meal. Scallops were perfectly cooked, tender and succulent. Waiter was nice, service fast. I'd go there again and recommend.

Fantastic, innovative food, focusing on fresh, seasonal ingredients. There are small, medium, and large plates, along with appetizers and snacks. Get a variety of small and medium plates to share.

Our server was fun and helpful. She was spot on with her recommendations. And helped us order the right amount of food.

Nice atmosphere with indoor and outdoor seating.

We found this online while driving through and decided to stop. The food was excellent, as was the service. My only complaint is that it is a little over priced. One reviewer was disappointed with the limited menu, I find that that is usually a good thing, as they change daily and seasonally.

Asked for rare to medium got well done. Should have sent it back but then you are the last one eating at the table!. Menu was very limited perhaps just trying to be too clever.

What a great dinner! Read some reviews on the restaurant and decided we needed to try it...and it was memorable! Just two of us, so we split the bread basket (which came with three yummy spreads), the panzanella salad, and the stripling steak with mash potatoes. For dessert, we splurged and tried the bread pudding and vanilla chess pie. If I had to do over again, I wouldn't change a thing! Every dish was excellent...great flavors!
