Fishers is consistently ranked as one of the best places to live around the country. Filled with great neighborhoods, top-ranking school systems, and an ever-growing number of activities, there are plenty of reasons to move your family here. But did you know that a number of great local restaurants are all over our city? Here’s a list of five of our favorites.
Sahm’s started as a steakhouse in the middle of a cornfield in 1986, and they’ve been doing right with huge portions of American staples at reasonable prices ever since. The Flying Horse Pub has a number of local beers on tap, and the kitchen serves sizzling Pittsburgh-style steaks plus an assortment of entrees, salads, sandwiches on homemade bread, and more. Don’t forget to try their world famous coffee cake!
As the city expanded, so too did the Sahm’s family of restaurants. The Roost was Sahm’s second restaurant and has remained a Fishers’ staple for over twenty years. Tried-and-true breakfast classics such as pancakes, biscuits and gravy, omelets, and delicious coffee – its no wonder this place is always buzzing!
A taste of England can be found just west of the newly revamped downtown on 116th Street. Chatham Tap is a local favorite with an extensive beer list, award-winning food, and an incredible atmosphere. If you’re a soccer fan make sure to pull up a seat on a Saturday morning to catch a match.
Nickel Plate Bar & Grill
Next to the old Nickel Plate Railroad tracks is another Fishers classic. The Nickel Plate Bar & Grill has a casual, pub-like atmosphere with a full service bar, private dining room, family area, and a year-round outdoor patio. We highly recommend trying their award-winning Breaded Tenderloin Sandwich.
What began in Fortville a few years back has expanded into a second location near Geist. FoxGardin Family is a cozy little joint with big-time food. The founders concocted a number of unique, creative menu items that blend well with their down-to-Earth atmosphere. Plus with custom cocktails and an extensive beer and wine list, it’ll be in your happy hour rotation very quick!
