In Indianapolis for an overnight while flying out for vacation and found Tavern online. The atmosphere was fantastic, and even on an 85 degree evening, the fans made the deck a great place to dine. Fantastic food, great drinks and superb service.

Went for lunch with a very good friend of mine who is launching a new business. We sat on the terrace and enjoyed a very nice lunch and exciting conversation. The service was wonderful and the cheeseburgers or fantastic. Thank you Tavern on South!

We went there for lunch with about 16 business associates. The food was excellent and the service quick despite the busyness. I had the crab cake sandwich and was very tasty. The location is 1 block from the Stadium which was very convenient for us.

There were too few servers, not enough cooking space, and the food that did come out to our table (after a 50-minute wait) was missing essential toppings and well over-cooked. We saw our server at our table a total of 3 times during our 90-minute...More

BeachDad 23, We're sorry for the experience you had supporting Indianapolis Burger Week. Our restaurant did not participate in the event this year. The Tavern just down the street participated and I'm sure they would enjoy your feedback on their page. Next time, come in...More

Sat outside on the three season patio - warm-ish February day. Very comfy with their outdoor heating system and adjustable enclosure system. Food was very good. I had the steak and others had salmon. The service was great but not overly attentive. You must try...More
