At Ralston's Draftouse, the health and wellbeing of our guests, our employees and our community remains our top priority.  In compliance with Indiana Governor Holcomb’s announcement and to support this community’s ongoing effort to slow the transmission of COVID-19, we plan to temporarily suspend dine-in service at close of business Monday, March 16th , 2020


Beer from Saint Joseph Brewery will be available for carryout in 64 Oz and 32 Oz containers during this time at Chatham Tap Mass. Ave., Chatham Tap Butler and Chatham Tap Fishers.  Available beers will be posted on soon.


We will not be providing food delivery or carryout during this time.  Instead, we made the decision to redistribute the food and perishable items from our restaurants to our employees and their families.


Our plan is to reopen immediately after we are told it is safe to do so.


We would like to send a heartfelt thank you to each of you who have reached out in support of our employees and our restaurants.  We wish you and your families continued health.  Our restaurant family looks forward to seeing our community through this difficult time so that we may serve you and your family again soon.



A significant number of our hard-working employees currently find themselves without a job.

To assist those that have helped us and served you over the years, we are selling Ralston's Drafthouse Gift Cards to raise money for them.

100% of the Net Proceeds from these sales will be distributed to our furloughed employees.

Our hope is to provide some certainty during these uncertain times.


Thank you.  Ralston's Drafthouer


A Little Bit About Ralston's & Our Namesake

Named after Alexander Ralston, the engineer who after moving to the United States from Scotland, was hired in 1820 to help survey our city. In 1821, Ralston was then commissioned by the Indiana General Assembly to make a city plan for Indianapolis. As originally planned, the city’s 1-square mile footprint included the Governor’s mansion placed centrally on a large circular commons. Demolished in 1857, the original Governor’s mansion was replaced by what we know today as Monument Circle featuring the 284-foot tall limestone and bronze Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument.

Join us at Ralston’s to experience a delightful atmosphere and sensational menu of fine beers, wines and complementary dishes.

One step in, and what you’ll find is something quite inviting, with as much character as you’d expect along Massachusetts Avenue in Indianapolis.



We want to hear from you and want to make sure you have the best experience, give us a call!
