Welcome to the Hornet's Nest!
A true local experience.
The Hornet's Nest Story!
A gathering place for both locals and travelers alike since the mid 1800’s, the Hornet’s Nest, an Evansville restaurant and bar experience, still offers exceptional hospitality and so much more. With an eclectic crowd of regulars, passersby, traveling foodies and families, as well as a booming nightlife, we have something for everyone. The menu ranges from tavern fare to carefully-crafted, chef-inspired specials, but there is nothing regular about an item that leaves their kitchen. Our dedication to provide the total experience is apparent, and the longstanding success of our establishment is proof of that.
We are located just several minutes from the airport. With a very long tradition as one the Tri-State’s favorite restaurants, we operate under the phiosophy, “if you can dream it, we can do it.” Come for the history and delicious food, stay for the ambiance – you won’t be disappointed.
