My non-german, non-BA boss and I visited the Rathskellar during our recent trip to Indy. We were both thoroughly impressed. The Rathskellar offers a top-notch a beer and food experience.

The half timber ceiling, German decor, and white table cloths combine to offer a high class ambience. The Ratheskellar is date worthy, business appropriate, and books functions.

The food, which ranges from traditional German to continental/American fusion is excellent and presented well. My boss is Greek, and wasn't too excited about German food but found that the salmon was excellent, and enjoyed a taste of my schnitzel.

The beer list is comprehensive, but not infinite. They don't offer local beer, but instead focus on German classics and European favorites. I haven't run the numbers, but I can't imagine that anything on their list scores lower than 3.9 on BA.

The food is $15-20 ish, and the bottle prices seemed high (and I drink in Boston). (946 characters)

Good beers on tap and a phenomenal atmosphere. Pretzel mustard with horseradish sets your nose on fire. Schlenkerla rauchbier, spaten optimator, steel nail ipa, and a hofbrau dunkel were consumed. (196 characters)
