The 605 Grille is foremost a family restaurant. The most succinct description I could come up with was, "family owned and family operated, for families." Apparently the entire family participates and works together (more). And you don’t have to take my word for it, see for yourself. It’s a beautiful place.
Although it has a bar, with bar seating, that word that does not apply. The kind of behavior you might imagine taking place in a bar wont be found here. The more sophisticated term "pub" far better applies, as the 605 Grille’s civilized, classy, and family friendly atmosphere is well maintained. This is not a single’s bar either. Couples, whole families, and groups represent the general clientele. Although I do recommend the 605 for a date night restaurant. The chaperones are included at no extra cost.
The 605 is a big supporter of the micro brewery industry and actively promotes Indiana micro brews. Specific Indiana micro brews include:
Upland Komodo Dragonfly, Upland Wheat Ale,
Three Floyds Alpha King,
NABC Hoptimus, and Powerhouse Diesel Oil Stout. All available right here at the 605 Grille.
We miss this beautiful place, concept and the beer, ~ Rick.
The 605 Grille is a family restaurant first and foremost, and I emphasize "the family." Apparently the entire family participates and works together (more). In my heart, this is the truest American Dream and they have achieved it. I'm totally envious.
The purpose of this page is to promote great tourist destinations, activities, food, entertainment and tourism related services located in Indiana’s Madison Historic District. And the 605 Grille is an examplar of the kind of places tourists can expect to find and enjoy here in Madison Indiana.
