"Food for Thought"

The 605 Grille, dinner only restuarant and pub’s front exterior of building with rose red doors and benches.

[top]

The 605 Grille restuarant’s main dining room.

Welcome

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.

[top]

Pub

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.

Upland Komodo Dragonfly, Upland Wheat Ale,
Three Floyds Alpha King,
NABC Hoptimus, and

Background

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.

Powerhouse Diesel Oil Stout

Great Divide Yeti

Denver,
Colorado
9.5 ????
Great Divide’s Yeti Imperial Stout is an onslaught of the senses. An almost viscous, inky-black brew, Yeti opens with a massive, roasty, chocolate, coffee malt flavor that eventually gives way to rich toffee and burnt caramel notes. Packed with an enormous quantity of American hops, Yeti’s hop profile reveals a slightly citrusy, piney, and wonderfully dry hoppy finish.      

NorthCoast PranQster

California 7.6 ????
A Belgian golden ale with a floral nose, a full fruity flavor, and a clean finish.      

Upland Wheat Ale

Breckenridge Vanilla Porter

Breckenridge,
Colorado
5.7
$5.00
Who would have thought deep in the jungles of Papua New Guinea and Madagascar grew the perfect ingredient to build an extraordinary Porter in Colorado?
