Our Story

Checkered Flag Tavern has been serving great food and live music to the people of Indianapolis since 1947. Our current owner, Stacey Snead, took ownership 10 years ago and completely renovated the building, turning the Checkered Flag Tavern into what it is today! Stacey grew up working in her parents’ restaurant and is well-versed in the industry. Her years of experience make her a great addition to our team and she has made us an excellent family restaurant for any occasion.

Our food is fresh and homemade, and we have a constantly rotating specials menu. We’re not afraid to try new things here at the Checkered Flag Tavern and our customers love us for that! We often have live music entertainment and get traveling bands that you can’t see play anywhere else in Indianapolis.

We like to keep things fresh, new, and exciting! Stacey and our whole team are very happy with all the success we’ve had in the past and are looking forward to continuing to serve our lovely community for many years to come.

We are best known for our delicious food, live music, drink specials, and award-winning chicken wings. Our fun atmosphere makes us a popular dining spot with many in-house entertainment options like pool tables, dart leagues, and patio seating. We are a family-friendly restaurant located in one of the best spots in the city. We look forward to growing our business so that we can continue to provide good food, amazing music, and award-winning wings to Indianapolis and the surrounding areas.

We’re proud to be a place where people can come together and celebrate life! For any questions about our menu or live music, contact the Checkered Flag Tavern at (317) 247-6209 to learn more.
