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.

Dizzyo136, Thanks so much for coming in. We appreciate your feedback. We hope you keep us in mind for future business lunches. Yes, we love our crab cake sandwich too. It's the best in the summer! Best, Tavern on South

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

We ate here last night for a birthday- food was decent. I'd recommend coming here before a Colts game, it's walking distance from Lucas Oil. Our service wasn't awesome which is why I had to knock it a little. I recommend dining on the upstairs...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

Third visit nothing special about the food (lunch menu). And high price for so-so lunch - $12 range. This lunch was almost inedible - beef and blue baguette. Meat was so tough and grisly that I couldn't chew it. Should have complained but didn't want...More
