It's always inadvisable to bite the hand that feeds you, especially since it's usually your own hand and the food is on the fork part anyway. Sink your teeth into this Groupon.
Choose from Four Options
- $53 for dinner for four on Friday or Saturday (up to a $104 value)

With all options, each diner selects one entree (up to a $20 value each), and each couple selects one starter to share (up to an $12 value each).

Diners can substitute entrees valued at more than $20 by paying the difference in price.
Tavern On South
On the second-story balcony of a century-old brick building, diners at Tavern On South find their meals illuminated by a blend of moonlight and the glowing Indianapolis skyline. The tavern might also be within walking distance of Lucas Oil Stadium—100 feet, to be exact—but its upscale ambiance and seasonal menu subverts what you'd expect from your typical sports bar.
A Dining Room with a View
As noted by Indianapolis Monthly in 2011, the interior's wooden accents and iconic photos of the city "lend the tavern a timeless patina." It's a somewhat modern, toned-down take on a typical pub look, with granite bartops and exposed brick. When the weather's balmy, a meal on the patio offers unmatched views of the skyline.
Seasonal ingredients and creative flavors give Tavern on South's traditional offerings unexpected twists. Buffalo wings are made from Maple Leaf Farms duck rather than chicken, and hefty burgers are crafted from house-smoked bison. Even the meatloaf is made from prime rib.
Craft Beer and Cocktails At the bar, the craft beers on draft change with what's available from local breweries, but patrons can also find favorites from Flat 12 and Sun King Osiris by the bottle. The tavern's habit of bucking tradition also carries over to signature cocktails, such as the Cucumber Collins and a mai tai made with spiced rum.

“The lump crab cakes were delicious, but the real treat were the entrees. My wife ordered the meatloaf with a char bbq sauce with a hint of bite and I savored the macadamian trout. We thoroughly enjoyed the meats, but the potatoes forgot the flavor.”
