REVIEWS OF AJ'S Bar & Grill IN Indiana

Suzanne Rees

The onion rings are fantastic. We ordered the wings. They were pretty good. Friend ordered tuna melt and loved it.

Suzanne Nutt

You truly can not go wrong with the food here -- seriously GOOD eats!! And I'm talking "foodie" good eats (not bar food). How about BBQ shrimp and sausage over cheesy grits with huge stalks of asparagus on the side?? Or Honey(?) Mushroom Pork Chops with the long bone-in with potatoes and loaded side salad?? Auuuugh, now i need to go back and eat there soon as I'm drooling just thinking about it :)

Brett Campbell

Great Food with a lively atmosphere. Plenty of variety on the menu. Modern decor and very clean. They had a live band while I was there which was interesting. Overall prices seemed a bit higher than the value. Because big this mismatch, AJ's is not a place a would visit often, but you probably won't regret your first visit.


Amazing wings! I came in on a night when they were hosting some old guys playing rock and blues, and it was great!

Mona Berberena

Great food and great service

Jake Barnes

Food was good for bar fare. The tenderloin does not disappoint. Service was a bit slow, but they may have just been understaffed at lunch.

Dar Smith

Great tenderloins and weekly types of sliders.


The food was good, the service even better. Friendly staff and great location. Outside cover seating, plenty of parking and handicap access. Bar and sports coverage relaxing vibe.

Gabe Gordon

Decent food, service is acceptable. However, the prices here are sky high for a little bar in a strip mall. 14 dollar salad, with a very small amount of steak. 11 dollar (shareable) chicken finger appetizer, however there was only 3 relatively small chicken fingers, I don't know who you would share those with, ha. Definitely do not go here to eat, as by the time you are done, you could of gone to a full sit down nice restaurant. However, the place is fine, for a quick beer or two. However, they do close early on the weekends. This place is likely supported by some of the geist people just to north of this place, and this is the only option right there. And most of them really don't care about the high prices. However, as a geist resident and homeowner, I'd prefer to make the drive, down to wolfies, with similar prices, better and bigger place and a view of the water, or murphys tap house on fox rd.

We tried out this local restaurant last night. It's family owned by neighbors in our area. It was fantastic! I recommend it to everyone! My husband and I decided to try it out after just learning about it less than a week ago. The service was amazing and the food was outstanding. I wish I could remember our server's name because we had so much fun with her. The pork tenderloin was truly great but my husband got the Cajun meatloaf sandwich and my mind was blown. We ended up sharing meals. This is coming from someone who typically HATES meatloaf. My husband said this was THE best meatloaf sandwich he has ever had. I will go back and order that meatloaf sandwich myself. The fried mushrooms, sweet potato fries and Kevin's Apple Crisp we're also done extremely well and were delicious. I was conflicted on what to try because everything looked so good. I eat pork tenderloin typically once a year as a special treat and I know where I'll be getting mine in the future. We were able to meet Coleman (one of the owners) and he was very kind. We enjoyed being able to warm up a bit and have a hot meal when our power was out last night due to the high winds. We even got into conversation with the couple sitting next to us. It was a great respite on a dark, cold night. We'll definitely be returning soon.

Chriss Gregor-maxwell

Last night, both bar and kitchen slow, with wrong orders too. AJ's, I know you can do better! And I am counting on it, because I am going to keep going.

Jo Wantuck

I just popped in. Never been there. Got two pick you own sandwiches. Took them home for our dinner. They were great. Freshly cooked to order. Bread and veggies were also fresh. Really liked it and I will return. Atmosphere was inviting and people were friendly and knew their stuff. Cook made the order perfectly.

Kathy Brown

Great food!! We had the Mexican pizza which was awesome. Bobbie the bartender is wonderful!

Scott Spitler

Nice clean place great food !!

Tim Dunn

Love the food and service here. Some of the best pub food around Indy, in a clean and fun environment. Nice, central stage where great live music plays. It's one of those must-go places you hear about. Sunday brunch specials, Bloody Mary bar, large patio deck, etc will keep you coming back. And did I mention the amazing Italian Beef sammich?!?

Sheri Cooper

Love the bar. Great food! Good people.

John Wartenberg

Love AJ’s Bar and Grill! Great food and reasonable drinks. Super specials. And a fun crowd.

John Peters

Great service. Food was outstanding.

Juan sergio Solano

I'm the chef and I approved every single one of our guest comments...I want yo thank God first for giving me the opportunity to do what like the most cook!!and after that my bosses Kevin Labarr and Cora,my family and co-workers to make AJ'S BAR AND GRILL the new place in INDY!!! God bless you all and thanks for your support!!!

Marquese Martin-Hayes

Strong customer service. Very basic but comfortable feel. The food is really good though. That I believe serprestes it from a common bar good experience. They also have a poker tournament, I'm not a card guy or a betting man but cool to see.

Cathi Hartzell

Better menu since Keven bought it. Good service as well

Eric Peterson

Great food and great service!

Kailey Harmon

If you’re looking for great food, drinks, service, and entertainment, you can’t go wrong with AJ’s! I eat here often and each time has been an enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend coming in on the weekend for their delicious brunch menu or stop by for a cold beer and enjoy live music. The staff is very friendly and always accommodating to their customers. It’s a great atmosphere for anyone who is looking for a place to come in, relax and enjoy fantastic food. You wont be disappointed!

Nathan Negron

Nice bar! Nice staff! Just wish they had karaoke

Walter Beaver

Didn’t dine in, ordered take out. Weekly cluck was amazing and tasty. Cajun meatloaf had the perfect amount of seasoning. We will definitely be going back for more!!


Amazing food and staff!!

Brian Fuller

Absolutely a fantastic meal! Great taste with excellent seasoning on the dishes which required no additional salt or pepper. Proper portioning for the price, which left me no room to try desert. This is definitely a place in which you can go for a great meal and will not leave you wanting more.

Andrea Beiswenger

Kevin and staff go out of their way to guarantee a good experience. They even helped me with preparations of a special menu item for a private party. All the food I have tried has been great but may I recommend the grilled asparagus!

Brett Steffey

Always attentive service and great food menu!! Willing to step outside the norm with specials throughout the week!

Penny Frazier

Excellent food & service. So nice to go to a friendly family owned restaurant instead of a chain. Wish we lived closer!

Kerry Tucker

Great service and delicious food. I ordered tonight's special; chicken pot pie with flaky crust served with a side salad. Yum! Kudos to the staff and manager for their teamwork on a busy night. I will be back to dine on more menu choices.

Robert Koehne

Our 1st visit for their Tuesday night special was awesome. Staff was very busy but pleasant. Good crowd for good food. We will go back

Gail McGrath

Thanks for your response. I sent a one star review after we ordered our food on door dash and it was never delivered. We tried to call the restaurant to check on the order and it was continually busy. We had a difficult time getting our charge reversed with door dash. The restaurant called us after the one star was posted to apologize.

Matt Kirken

Awesome menu... Great owners... Hospitality is just what is needed these days! Monday night poker is fun too!

Ryan Avery

Bobbie is hands down the best bartender in town!!! New management is great and this is the only place you’ll find me on a Sunday night jamming with Orvis and friends!! 5 stars for sure!!

Gail Henricks

We sat outside. It took 15 minutes for the wait staff to greet us. The one drink took 15minutes to arrive because the computers weren't communicating with the bartender. Several patrons came out to warm up because the air condition was to high. Someone asked if they could open the new awning windows and the response was " no it makes the walls sweat". My husband enjoyed the Cesar salad. I had a watered down long island and the wedge salad. The bacon was intolerable (rancid) and had to be picked off and the tomatoes were sparse. Only 3 ingredients to this salad and 2 were a fail. Outside I could still smell cigarettes smoke. I was as far away from the smoker while still being in the restaurant. This was a poor experience at best.

Cheryl Spencer-Harmon

Great food! Love the diverse menu, and that it's not typical bar food. Add to that the weekly specials, and you will always have new and different choices as well! Bread pudding was delicious! We'll be back!

Richard Dabbs

Go check out Andrew Young there and enjoy great music and food.

Garry Arnold

Good food but being from Australia can't work out why there is a service charge and gratuities

Kevin Schluchter

Fabulous staff and food anytime I have ever been there! Recent owners Kevin and Cora LeBarre, manager Coleman and company are the Cheers of Geist. Friendly grill and bar and clientele!

cindy underwood

Went for highschool reunion. Band was FANTASTIC. Great service and food.

Jessica Taylor

If you want to go to an unfriendly, cliquey restaurant this is the place to go. If you want a table in the bar area, forget it. The tables are always reserved for friends & family practically every night never providing other patrons the opportunity to have a choice. If the owners cared about their business, they would care about the customers. Preferential treatment is based on who you are. This is very unusual for an owner to think this is appropriate and good for business. Several months ago the tables and chairs were swapped for a new style which are hard and extremely uncomfortable. The new chairs in the dining room are regular height which is somewhat of a strain to see the TV's and there is is some obstruction in comparison to the bar stools. Every time you visit there are new servers who are unfamiliar with the menu or bar drinks. This position is like a revolving door. In the past we had dinner there once a week. The food quality is not consistent and as good as when the restaurant first opened. dry fettuccine alfredo, quesadilla full of bacon, pork and cuban sliders are dry and the steak is tough and lacks seasoning. Now, we go elsewhere where the food is better and the owners stop to say hello and ask about your meal. No preferential treatment.

Dotty Grabarz

Great brunch! Food was amazing and reasonably priced, especially given the quality. There’s a huge selection to choose from, all of which has been outstanding. Atmosphere is friendly; love the wait staff, especially Bobbi. Dinner or brunch, you can’t go wrong. It’s a great place to hang on the weekend and listen to live bands. If you want to have a great night out with friends, come check this place out!

Michael Slate

Absolutely amazing food. Wife’s Steak was cooked a perfect medium and my burger was perfect (had the egg bacon and cheese on top). They started this new thing the day we came in with brunch on saturdays and Sunday’s and the pricing and food is top notch. Check this place out!

T.D. McCarty

Awesome menu with lots of options that all sound great, variety of sliders, beef stroganoff, pastas, and sandwiches. Service was fast and meals were perfectly portioned. Will definitely be returning to try a few more menu items.

Eric Marasco

They have done a lot to the food menu. Good beer specials sometimes too

Josh Dawson

Very great food!

Devin Zeigler

We go to many restaurants and bars around Indianapolis, and we always feel that we get the BEST bang for our buck at AJ’s. Not just because of the friendly, prompt service, but the food is great and consistent. We always feel comfortable here, music is awesome and the place is clean. Owners really know what their customers want.

Sherron Franklin

Great place and people

Tim Smith

I gotta say, Wow! I got the ribs on a friend's prompting and he was right. Best ribs ever! My wife and I are listing our home and looking for one across the street fro AJ's. I want more ribs.

Josh Ward

The food was superb. The service was terrific. Amber and Crystal were very pleasant and right close to tend to us. Will certainly be back again.

Peter Bun

The food is good. I have been several times. My to go order was wrong. They caught it, but instead of fixing it they gave me the order made incorrectly, with the toppings I wanted on the pizza on the side. I was late going to get my order so they should have just fixed it and told me when I got there. I won't be going back. There are other places around where we live that handle mess ups better. I'd rather spend with them.

Brad Anderson

Pleasantly surprised to find this in my neighborhood. Good food at a reasonable price.

Amanda Parks

Great food.

Patrick Bragg

Great place to watch Blackhawks & other major sporting events.

Robert Shimer

Great food and service, the fish spread was amazing. And should know I'm from Florida, also loved the meatloaf. Great place K Barr.

Justin King

Very clean place with awesome staff and great food! The drinks were on point, not too weak or strong - just right! We'll return for sure!

Matt Linton

Great atmosphere and terrific food. I got the Cuban sliders paired with a Rail splitter on draft (maybe 2). Top notch. The server was pleasant and efficient. The owner stopped by and it sounds like they host a lot of high quality bands and entertainment at night. Highly recommend!!!

bruce dodd

Good place to go. Good drinks, clean and good music.

JR Emerson

Another great meal at AJ's Bar and Grill. Great food, great music, ad great people! You've gotta try this place.

Tad Bristow

Our go to local place for good food and friendly atmosphere. Always explore the specials - I like the chef's style. Leans towards NOLA comfort food.

lowell jessup

I was disappointed in taste of the food. Waiter was good.

Jennifer Sadlowski

Awesome food. Awesome band tonight!

Aaron McGinn

Shrimp & so amazing

Mc Cm

Great neighborhood bar. Came here on a monday. Had a few cocktails and fried green beans. Calm, relaxed vibes. I like it.

Sean Marks

Great service, and great food. Super accommodating for our large Rock Steady group.

Geoff McCuen

Wow. Surprisingly good food for a bar in a strip mall. Even the leftovers were yummy.

dan glock

Great service for lunchtime, appetizers were great but the breaded tenderloin was THE ABSOLUTE BEST I've had (and I've had ALLOT!). It was by chance I came today, but it won't be next time! I will be back!!!

Sue Smitha

Great neighborhood bar and grill, food and service consistently good.

Amy Owens

Service and food were great! Loved the shrimp cups and California dreamin sandwich!

Tim Black

Very friendly wait staff and bartenders, super close feels like family. Could use more beer taps

Gary Rakow

Great food, terrific service, good prices. Will definitely return more often.

Eric Salzmann

Amazing! Great Music! Awesome Food!

Ryan M.

I don't recall ever being here, so I'll believe Google and give it 5 stars for serving strong drinks!

michael mcmahon

HORRIBLE OWNERS! Can’t take constructive criticism. Kicked out when I complained about a drink. I was then threatened by owner and staff outside while they were trying to pick a fight. What I ordered was supposed to be an “Irish Car Bomb.” They’re selling one of those in a built in Red Bull and Jager shot cup, not how it is SUPPOSED to be, which is a half shot of Jameson, half shot of Baileys, and a PINT OF GUINNESS!!!!!!! Proud jerks....

Ryan Lee

Very good food for a little pub and the pricing is perfect. Service has always been good.

Angie Rimmert

Fun atmosphere, good food, easy going staff.

Lauren Rodgers

The food is absolutely phenomenal! The time and care that goes into the specials is above and beyond. Service is amazing and personal.
