Shoefly Public House | Indianapolis, IN

Shoefly Public House_Cuban Pretzel Flatbread

My Cuban Pretzel Flatbread at Shoefly Public House really pushed the boundaries of what can evenly remotely be considered pizza, but I found the restaurant and this dish worthy of a post nonetheless.  Shoefly is located at 22nd and Talbott Street in Indianapolis and was created to offer this area a place for a quick [...]

The Cheesecake Factory | Indianapolis, IN

The Cheesecake Factory_Pepperoni Pizza

The Cheesecake Factory in the Keystone Fashion Mall on Indy’s north side must be doing something right because they are always busy, and I give them credit for having quick service despite the crowds.   Part of their draw may be that they have something for everyone with one of the biggest menus I have ever seen.  [...]

Palomino Restaurant & Bar | Indianapolis, IN

Palomino Restaurant & Bar_Sopressata Pizza

Palomino Restaurant & Bar is a pretty classy place, yet it manages to not be stuffy.  They have locations in a few states, and I dined at their restaurant in downtown Indianapolis, right by Circle Center Mall.  I started with their Tomato-Basil Bruschetta and enjoyed it.  The Roma tomatoes and basil were good, and the herb oil [...]

Oobatz! Restaurant | Indianapolis, IN

Oobatz_Hoosier Daddy Pizza

Oobatz! Restaurant could best be described as a slightly upscale sports bar, and they have two locations in central Indiana – one in Zionsville and one at Keystone at the Crossing in Indianapolis.  There is a somewhat interesting color-changing mood lighting wall in their restaurant at Keystone at the Crossing that causes some odd changes in hue in my pictures [...]

Houlihan’s Restaurant and Bar | Indianapolis, IN

Houlihan's Restaurant and Bar_Margherita Flatbread

Houlihan’s Restaurant and Bar has many locations, including two in central Indiana.  I ate at the Houlihan’s in northeastern Indianapolis’ popular Castleton Square Mall (just to clarify, its attached to the outside of the mall but is essentially its own building and is not a part of the food court in the mall or anything [...]

Biaggi’s Ristorante Italiano | Carmel, IN

Biaggi's_Sausage Pizza

Biaggi’s Ristorante Italiano is a chain of nice, yet casual, Italian restaurants that offer soup, salad, pasta, seafood, steak, pizza, and dessert.  I dined at their restaurant in Carmel’s Clay Terrace outdoor mall, and I was impressed by how they classed-up the interior from the bars that were in its location previously.  I was with a group [...]

Rockstone Pizzeria & Pub | Fishers, IN

Rockstone Pizzeria & Pub in Fishers, IN_Regular Crust Meatzorilla Pizza

Rockstone Pizzeria & Pub is a newer restaurant at 116th and Allisonville in Fishers, Indiana that has the potential to really catch on.  The pub part of Rockstone Pizzeria & Pub features a great local beer list and the pizzeria part offers both wood-fired and traditional crust pizzas.  Beyond that, they also serve starters, salads, [...]

Copper Still Kitchen & Bar | Noblesville, IN

Copper Still Kitchen & Bar in Noblesville, IN_Cheese Pizza

Copper Still Kitchen & Bar is situated off of the square in downtown Noblesville (the location that was previously Conner Station) and is known for their vast beer selection.  It has a nice atmosphere and features live music on weekends but also offers more of a laid-back dining room if you prefer to be away from the noise.  I focused on beer sampling [...]

Pizza by the Harbour | Noblesville, IN

Pizza by the Harbour in Noblesville, IN_Pepperoni and Extra Cheese Pizza

Pizza by the Harbour has carryout and delivery locations in Noblesville and Sheridan, Indiana.  My guess is that the Noblesville location was the first since it is just off of Morse Reservoir, and the closest body of water to the Sheridan restaurant seems to be a retention pond.  I had heard good things about the Pizza by the [...]

Giorgio’s Pizza | Indianapolis, IN

Giorgio's Pizza_New York-Style and Sicilian-Style Slices

Giorgio’s Pizza has a location in downtown Indianapolis and one in the Indianapolis International Airport.  I visited the original location downtown which opened in 1990 and is just east of Monument Circle.  It was neat to see Giorgio himself still working there, although the staff wasn’t very friendly overall.  In addition to salads, pasta, and [...]
