My husband and I didn’t think twice about moving back to Indiana from Phoenix, AZ in 2010 when the opportunity presented itself. After several years back in Indiana and 21 years in finance I ran an idea by my husband ‘what do you think about opening a wine bar/restaurant in Hamilton County?’. First reactions were not favorable but after much thought and analysis we decided we could make this work. Having 15+ years restaurant experience from fast food to fine dining I knew it wouldn’t be easy. In February 2017 after a lot of research and determination we opened Stompin Barley, a place that provides excellent wine and food in a casual contemporary environment.
Although my husband has his own career as VP of Logistics at Carter Express in Anderson, IN you will most likely find him on Fridays and Saturdays offering wine tastings and talking to anyone who will listen. He loves getting to know our customers!
We look forward to meeting you during your next visit to Stompin Barley. To reserve a table please use the Find a Table button above or call us at 317-764-2974

What our Customers Say…
So far we have dined twice. Both times the food was top notch, probably one of the best in area. Service was spot on.Anthony Gunst
Very good food and local beers. Upscale atmosphere with the prices of a less fancy place.Brandon King
If you have been here before but haven’t been here for a while they have changed up the menu and it is delicious! If you have never been here give it a try! Definitely a neighborhood gem!Judy McElhiney
New chef and new menu proved as good as in the past if not better! If you haven't tried it or haven't found it (hard to spot on the inside of a strip center) YOU SHOULD!!Douglas Church
