Carl and the Band created a Steller performance for what I am sure will be the first of many larger venue performances in the Indy area. Everyone was fighting for tables. The pizza and wings were outstanding as usual, the service was top notch and the Ale was packed. You can watch your favorite sporting event on any one of... More

I have been going here for over 20 years, but then moved away. However, I went back to find that some things don't change and that is good in this case. AE has expanded to serve larger crowds, improved the seating and bars. However, the toughest decision is the incredible fresh baked pizza or the Hermanaki wings. The best I... More

Large spacious areas filled with atmosphere and fun loving people. Service is top notch with over one hundred selections of beers on the menu you can't go wrong. Great menu and the deep dish pizza is a must try!! If you're in the 465 Allisonville road area it's well worth the stop to wet your whistle and have a slice... More

Went here from advice from co workers. Food was very good I got wings and a small pizza. The wings were very good and are a must if you come here. My server Liz was a breath of fresh air she was very pleasant and attentive. I will definitely be back when I am in town again.

Wings were outstanding. Beer selection was large and varied. Staff was attentive and helpful. We tried four different types of wings and none were disappointing. Wish I lived here so I could get these wings all the time. The beer was also terrific with lots of craft beer choices. Highly recommend.
