The atmosphere at this establishment is very enjoyable. Although it is mainly bar, it is a very calming and relaxed place. Our waitress was very attentive to us. She was extremely polite. I had the shepherds pie, as did my fiancée and we both enjoyed...More

Enjoyable pub food with large portions I had a salad and half an order of fish and chips. That was more than enough for dinner. A fun pub experience but can not say it was excellent.

I've eaten in pubs across Ireland and this is as close to the real thing as you will ever find on this side of the pond. The Guiness tastes just as good as in Ireland!

This place gets high marks for a reason. The food, service, atmosphere and beer selection is fantastic. If I had to find something wrong...it would be limited parking. But, that is it. We were visiting Purdue for a week and went here two times. I...More

Nothing special about the food, but is consistent and cheap. Don't bother trying anything too fancy from their special's menu (like the flatbreads they occasionally do), you'll just be let down, just stick with the greasy pub fare or the all day breakfast!!

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.
