Schnitzel lunch with sauerkraut and German potato salad were quite good. With a great pretzel, just $12.50 at lunch. And the facility is breathtaking.

Looking for something a little different? We stumbled across this establishment at the suggestion of a local, and we were not disappointed. Beautiful building and amenities that would make you think you're "across the pond". I can't comment on the food as we ate before (hence the 4/5 stars), but we spent a pleasant few hours in the huge beirgarten out back listening to the live band while drinking 32oz. beers. Would definitely visit again the next time we're in town. I would highly recommend!!

Oh my where do a I start? Great beers. Amazing food. Good service. Looks like some good live music although we did. It hear any. If you like German beer and good food this is a must. Fun place!

Out with some guys while in town on a convention. After watching the Indy 500 parade we hoped over to check this place out. The Rathskeller did not disappoint. We started inside with a couple of liters of beer and a sausage appetizer. The beer was cold and the food was good so we stayed and hung out for the rest of the day. 7 hours later we decided to leave and go back to the convention. Our server Melanie was awesome and kept us full of beer and food. At some point we moved outside to the beer garden. There was a $5 fee but it was worth it. The band was really great, combine that with great service and good German beer it just doesn't get much better. If I come back to Indy,I will return to the Rathskeller.
