      It always smells like dirty mop water in this place. As soon as you enter, people are throwing darts at you. What a stupid idea to put a dart board in front of the entrance and the bathrooms. The bartenders only cater to their friends and hot trade they think they can get with. TOO MUCH DRAMA!

      I've been there twice now, and this place is just plain awesome. They're not terribly big, but they have a nice dining area that is somewhat separated from the bar. They're open 24 hours starting Thursdays at 9am and stay open until Sunday night. GREAT food, AMAZING service. I will be back the next time I'm in Indy.

      Only time I go here is after the bars have closed and they're just serving food. Food is always delicious, at least when I'm drunk. It gets super busy on Friday and Saturday nights at about 3. Expect to share tables with strangers and make friends or enemies.

      To say this place is different is an understatement. The decor reminded me a trailer park chic. The menu was dirty and needed some updates. The food was average. The bartenders were friendly. One thing that will prevent me from returning is how smokey it was. If you allow smoking you need to have better ventilation than this place has. There were rude customers blowing smoke at me while I ate. The bartenders were smoking while making drinks (cigarettes hanging out of their mouths). The one bartender was sweating profusely and had soaked through his "bear lover" tshirt. He was lighting his next cigarette off the previous one. These guys were delivering food to people. That is unacceptable. I wanted to like this place and its quirkiness, but the execution was lacking

      It's fun!
      I found it to be a cute little bar with lots of charming people! It's amazing that with the mix of people, there wasn't any DRAMA. Everyone sang together and made you feel welcomed! I'm an out-of-towner but I always visit Olly's!

      Olly's is OK, sometimes
      It can get smoky there, the other reviewer was right about that. If you want to hang out with only men, this isn't your place. The ladies go there too and they can get really loud. Food is OK, best burger for the buck in town. Servers/bartenders change pretty much daily.

      Too Smokey
      Could be a nice little bar, but the Smoke...OMG Way to small to allow smoking. Also on Saturday nights they do Karaoke which could be great if they did not do it during the dinner hour. You are trying to eat dinner and you have these huge speakers blowing you away. Should start Karaoke after 10pm to allow for the dinner crowd to leave. Nice Staff

      Love the new bartender.
      From one bar to another. My favorite bartender in the world is now at Olly's. This is a massive change for him, but a plesant one for me. I was shocked and pleased all at the same time. Welcome to your new home. Oh, yeah I forgot, the great Olly Burger geezus what a massive burger. great stuff.

      Don't Waste Your Time
      The "server's" barely serve you. It's next to impossible to get a drink there on a Friday night. The service and the reputation have gone down hill quite a bit.

      Friendliest Bar in Town
      I am a regular patron of D.O. Friendliest wait-staff, friendliest bartenders. Karaoke is fantastic. Sing-a-long with John on Piano on Tuesday nights is a blast. The owners, Tim and Dean are the nicest guys in town. This is a place to have fun whether you're 21 or 81.
