Great place!!! Pub chips are excellent. Authentic irish food and drink. Even just a cheeseburger is served with pride. The owners are usually on site and enjoy visiting customers and making friends. The story of " nine iris brothers" is printed around the store and they love to share with customers.

The atmosphere is authentic and fun and family appropriate during the day. The food is decent.... okay, maybe I'd even say good. .. but nothing to write home about.

I went there with a group of work colleagues. They have a selection of all of the typical Irish fare plus a few other things added in. I had the Shepherd's Pie which was more than good and everyone was happy with their meals. Surprisingly for an Irish pub, they didn't pour a great pint of Guinness - it was... More

Nine Irish Brothers has the best breaded tenderloins in the State of Indiana. The potato slides with the meal are hot, brown, and crisp and compliment the meal to perfection. My wife and I have been to Ireland several times as it is as if you are actually walking into an Irish Pub but in West Lafayette and Lafayette, Indiana.... More

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!

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.
