The Shoefly Public House is a great space with rich colors and textures in an airy atmosphere. The food is pub inspired but to the next level. Items like flat bread made from pretzel dough and toppings like romesco, goat cheese, and balsamic syrup. Sandwiches and burgers also come in classic, and adventurous forms like the Huntsman with duck and wild mushroom ragout. Prices are great for a downtown eatery of this calibre. Lunches of an item and side, with water to drink, are around $14. Add a nice local beer for about $3 to $6 more depending on the size. I highly recommend you trying this place, at least for lunch. Dinner is on my to do list.

Want to be totally disrespected and treated like shit? Visit Shoe fly and sit in the bar or near the bar, or talk to the female bartender who works Monday nights. She will be abrasive for no reason, slam down glasses, (pretty sure she almost shattered one), and shake her head at you, and then when you confront her about why she is being hostile, be told that you are 'welcome to leave,' and that she no longer wants to talk to you 'in front of her other customers.' My boyfriend and I had eaten at Shoe Fly previously and had a wonderful experience, sans any dealing with the bartender. I came back in another night with a friend (a Monday also, if I remember correctly), and was 'greeted' by this bartender and we left because a) she was a bit rude, b) we couldn't find anything we wanted to drink. I decided to suggest my boyfriend and I go there again last night, though I was a bit nervous about the last time I was in, and so we went ahead and tried. Both me and my boyfriend serve tables part-time, so we understand having bad days and wanting to be off work or just crappy days in general. But this bartender is obnoxiously mean-spirited. I'm unsure if me not making eye contact with her when we walked in made her offended somehow, (I felt uneasy as soon as we walked in since she approached and basically told us our only option was to sit in the bar 'area'), or just the way I look is offensive, but she was irritable right away. We sat, ordered drinks, she was very abrupt but we shook it off, and since two tables next to us were dirty and we wanted to sit side by side (and were not given the option to sit at a booth, though almost all were empty/clean), we gently scooted a small table over to make a double. When the bartender came back, she threw coasters at us, mine actually hit me and fell to the table, and my boyfriend said politely, "We moved a table over, we wanted to sit next to each other, sorry about that." Her response? "Yea, I saw that," and then she walked off, busing the table next to us and banging the empty glasses on the table, together, etc. I felt so uncomfortable. She mumbled, "Stupid," to her two friends at the bar and kept looking at us and shaking her head (the bar is about twenty/forty feet from where we are sitting), and my boyfriend said, "Let's just get out of here, this is ridiculous." I felt the same, but told him to wait and got up to talk to her. I flat out asked her politely if there was a manager there, and she told me no, that she was closing for the night. I then just asked her why she was being hostile and banging things around, and what we had done to offend her. Her response was that the owner didn't like us 'touching or moving the furniture,' and my answer to that was that that's perfectly fine, but there was no reason to be hostile towards us and that we were sorry, we both serve tables for work so we get having hard days but it's not acceptable to be treated like she was. Her answer to that was that we were, 'welcome to leave, and you can pay for your drinks.' I just repeated that I didn't understand why she felt she needed to be hostile and she said again we were welcome to leave and we didn't even need to pay for the drinks, we could just leave and that she was not going to 'do this in front of' her other customers anymore. I have called to speak to the owner and manager, was told I would be called back. Will I be? I'm really unsure, but I am blown away by how nasty and disrespected we were for merely moving a small table. The food is okay, but not even being five star would make us go back to eat here. I would avoid, considering there are quite a few reviews commenting on the way customers are treated at this establishment.

I have been going to Shoefly for about a year now. We bring our staff from work and they love it. However, while the waitresses are very nice and courteous, I have a few words for the owner: SMILE YOU OWN A GREAT BUSINESS.

It's OVERPRICED. I had a wrap, fries & water. $17.26 including a $2 tip. The owner is RUDE!!! I mean RUDE. A group of eight woman decide to met. The first five woman showed and sat at the patio. We (3 more woman) walked up to the patio and proceeded to sitdown and put up the unbrella. When the own came out and was short and rude. It was obvious that the waiter was informed about us sitting ourselfs and was also short.

Just when you thought you've tasted the greatest BLT ever, a place like Shoefly Public House comes along and takes the prize! BLT is beyond words. Also, the restaurant uses much of their ingrediants from local suppliers. For example, the bacon is from Goose Market and the sourdough bread is from a place in Fountain Sqaure. The beer selection is great too! Huge fan!

Great IN draft brews, unique and delicious menu, and personal, friendly service. Nice outdoor seating that is dog and little human friendly.

Great inventive food that still manages to "hit the spot" - an absolute must as the best new pub in Indy.

Shoefly is the best local pub I could have asked for. They constantly rotate the draft beers through a variety of local breweries and the good is off the hook. Try the fish tacos!
