Great bands and atmosphere. Food is also good. Great place to meet before a Colt or Pacer Game. Walking distance to both venues.

Absolutely a disgrace. Wouldn't let my little brother in because he has Tourette's and was having an episode. Such a disgrace. Bouncers were very mean and totally unprofessional.

We’d been curious about this for years and finally stopped for lunch on a Monday. Wasn’t very crowded and we sat in the light and open sunroom instead of one of the many smaller, darker rooms on the south side; it’s bigger than it seems. Sandwiches with kettle chips seem to run $10.50 and our Teriyaki Chicken and Whisky Pepper... More

Lots of TV's to watch your favorite sports on...we left before the music started as we had had a long... More

A group of us eat lunch at the Slippery Noodle at least 1 - 2 times a week. They have great weekly lunch specials. You get the special and a drink for under $10! The waitresses are on it. They are sweet and professional and know what they're doing. We will always be regulars at The Noodle.

Great live music was playing, shots were flowing and drinks were being poured. This place is a landmark in Indi, so all worth while attending. Service was a bit slow, but at least they didn't run out of beer.

We stopped for a beer on Thanksgiving day before the Steeler-Colts game. The place opened at 4 and it was happening. Lots of little rooms, upstairs, downstairs, just a fun place to stop. The food looked fabulous. The staff, and there were a lot of them were all over the place. They had nice personalities and were very friendly. Would... More

I wanted to visit the Slippery Noodle simply for the fact that it's Indiana's oldest bar. For that reason, I am glad that I did. There is certainly nothing spectacular about the food. We were here for lunch and probably would have enjoyed it more in the evening when there is entertainment. We did have a wonderful server. The nachos... More
