Great place to eat & drink at! I've been here a couple of times and have alsways had a pleasant experience. I have had the pizza appetizer with corned beef and horseradish sauce. It was ok, I probably would not order it again. However, the fish & chips are really good. I would highly recommend them! I have yet to... More

I've had Fish n Chips in Ireland, England, Scotland, and even Disney World. Nine Irish Bros is legitimately my favorite. It's our go-to place in Lafayette. Never had a bad experience.

We stopped in for late lunch on Sunday, and really enjoyed this place. They have a nice selection of items on their menu, and their prices are very fair. We tried the special $4.00 bloody Mary, and it was very good. For lunch I had the tenderloin (waitress informed me it was voted the best in Indiana), it was very... More

Great, great, great food. It is a great experience with excellent food and beer. But it is also a family-friendly place. Especially because the music is loud and you can kick back and enjoy.

great food, live music on Friday nights, great service, and atmosphere. Highly recommend 9IB. 2 locations 1 on west side, even when there is a large crowd, usually on live music nights, the service is always good. Mikes Connemara chicken is a favorite. and the peppercorn steak is awesome. Have had most of the menu, have not found anything that... More

We went here with my son's college volleyball team and parents in a group of about 30 Pros: very helpful and friendly server-no mistakes and split checks by family without an issue, owner stopped by to check in on our satisfaction, accommodated our changing arrival time due to tournament delays, gave us our own area to sit, had a live...

I am probably one of the few people who go to an Irish Pub for the food, not the beer. I actually dislike most/all beer. I had the Irish soda bread. It was very good. I had a half plate of corned beef and cabbage, mashed potatoes. The corned beef was tender and moist, with a good flavor. The cabbage... More

For the US, it's an above average Irish styled pub that provides most of the servings and atmosphere of a typical pub found in Ireland. Portions are generous and priced lower than expected for what you are receiving. Staff is friendly but not overbearing, allowing for private conversations. The on-tap selections had something for everyone in the group. Additionally, gluten... More

Even though we called to check before we stopped here, they did not have the game that we wanted to watch (we were told on the phone they did). They have three TV's in the bar area and do not have the football package. As long as you know that going in.... Food was very good - fish and chips... More

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.
