It was cold and rainy in Indianapolis one weekend and I figured there might not be better and more appropriate weather to visit the new Irish pub in Indianapolis' hottest spot. Meridian Street is known for its singles clubs and fine dining; it is the gateway road to the famous Monument Circle. With the addition of this new, and I would say, sans experience, authentic Irish bar, Meridian Street has become that much more fashionable and desired. Sitting a block south of the Old Spaghetti Factory and within the former confounds of Union Station, Claddagh's Pub has set up residence in Indianapolis.
Favorite Dish: I've always been a huge fan of Shephard's Pie, and the Irish Pub's "Homemade Shepherdýs Pie" did not disappoint. It is an Irish meal of ground beef, carrots, peas and onions simmered in traditional gravy, topped with fresh whipped garlic potatoes. Sounds good huh, if not then there are plenty of bar foods and sandwiches with which to snack on. The price is cheap, the food is great, and the barmades don't disappoint with the beer.
Loved it before my UK trip this past summer, went back and realized how authentic the food is!! Everything there is good, fish and chips, bangers and mash.. the astmosphere is great too! they make you feel right at home.
Favorite Dish: the balsamic chicken is my favorite, the vinegar is not too overpowering and the chicken is always very tender. their mashed potatos are amazing!!
Get a Guneiss or two, sit and chat for the night. This is a fun place to hang with friends and have a beer. Not a great place for families. We have not gone there for dinner, just for drinks. It is a place we take visitors when they are visiting from other countries.
A place to stop after visiting the Monument Circle or shopping at Nordstrom.
