Chumleys is a sports bar style restaurant across from the court house. In my younger days, it would have been a huge draw because of its extensive beer selection and array of television sets. Of course, in my younger days, all I could afford was swill and probably would not have been able to enjoy the fine beers offered by Chumleys. Among many, many other beers, the bar offers some of the products from my favorite brewery, the Three Floyds’ Brewery out of Munster.
Now, Chumley’s huge draw for me is its downtown location and proximity to my work. It offers a solid lunch menu with pretty good burgers, friendly service, and reasonable prices. Yesterday afternoon, I had the chicken tender salad – the chicken was tasty as was the salad generally, though I could do with something other than just iceberg lettuce which I understand to be limited in terms of nutritional value versus other types of lettuce. Another favorite of mine are the nachos.
Bottom line is that this is a great place to grab a burger, beer, and a game or to get lunch while you’re downtown. If you are trying to impress a first date, this might not be your place.
Kid friendly: Not kid unfriendly exactly, but it is a bar; so not geared to kids.
Methods of payment: Cash or credit.
