Sahm's planning pizza pub

Prolific local restaurateur Ed Sahm is working to open a pizza pub in a former strip-mall CVS next door to Sahm’s Restaurant in Fishers.

A building permit issued this month identifies the eatery planned for 11501 Allisonville Road as Rockstone Pizza. Its liquor license, approved in March, calls it Rockstone Pub.

Sahm didn’t return messages left at the Fishers restaurant, but a friendly server—one of the hallmarks of the family-oriented chain—said diners have responded well to the house-made pizza at Sahm’s Bar and Grill on 96th Street, spurring the spinoff.

Although each of the 10 locations has its own menu, Sahm’s prides itself on “comfort-inspired” food using fresh, local ingredients. All breads, sauces and soups are made in-house daily—including its pizza dough and tomato sauce.

Goose the Market’s capocolla, andouille and fennel sausage are among the more exciting topping options (meatloaf and broccoli notsomuch).

Rockstone will occupy 4,800 square feet of space in what’s left of a CVS storefront left vacant when the pharmacy swapped locations with Sahm’s Restaurant several years ago. Sahm’s, which had been across the street in a stand-alone building at the southwest corner of Allisonville and 116th Street, moved into smaller quarters in a portion of the CVS space.

The pizzeria will seat about 60 and have a staff of 10, according to project information filed with the state.

  • Sahms
    So glad to see something great coming to 116th & Allisonville. I love Sahms and so excited to see them continue to grow.
  • Terriblel Smell
    I hope new establishment does not follow the terrible ciggarette smell at the 96th st. location. Enough to gag you.
  • Non Smoking Robo
    Robo, You must have not visited the new Sahms on 116th because it has been non smoking since they opened their doors a couple years ago.
  • Smoke
    I stopped by the 96 street Sahms this past Friday night looking for a nice place for dinner. I use to go there all the time but have not been there in several years, I go to the Fishers Sahms all the time and love it. I made it about two steps into the front door and had to turn around a leave because of the thick cigarette smoke. I thought they had passed a law to not allow smoking in restaurants in Fishers? I guess not...because there were several people smoking at the bar. Will not be back for pizza if there is smoke in the air!!! it was bad.
  • Catering?
    No mention of them trying to make a go of it in the (now) Rockstone space?
  • Rockstone Employee
    The Sahm's on 96th Street is smoking because it is an over 21 establishment.. Sahm's on 116th is a family restaurant which is NON-SMOKING...Rockstone will also be non-smoking and will be family friendly establishment as well. Come out and see us for some great food and good service!!! Plans to be opening August 26th.

My name is Mr Henry Josh and i live in the USA California and life is worth living right now for me and my family and all this is because of one man sent by GOD to help me and my family, i once had a life filled with sorrow because my first SON needed a kidney transplant and all our savings were going towards his medications and this normally leaves us with no money to pay our bills or even put enough food on our table and our rent was due and no funds to pay these bills and life felt so unfair to me and every night my wife will cry herself to sleep every night until one day, i was browsing through yahoo answers and i saw a striking advert of a man that gives out personal loans and that the offer is opened to all and i have heard so many things about internet scams but at this point of my life, i was very desperate and ready to take any risk and at the end of the day, i applied for this loan and from one step to another, i got my loan within 12 hours through bank transfer and you know, it was all like a dream and i called Mr Daniel Jones A Man who is the GOD sent lender i found and said, i have received my loan and he smiled stating that to GOD be the glory and i was so shocked as i have never ever seen anyone with such a GOD fearing and kind heart and today, i am the happiest man on earth because by GOD’S grace, my SON kidney transplant was successful and today he is healthy, i and my family are living very comfortable and happy and if you are in my former situation or in serious and legitimate need of a loan, you can reach this GOD sent lender via fidelityloanfirm@outlook.com

  4. Elected officials, like Mourdock, get vested in 8 years. It takes 10 years for all other public employees, most of whom make a lot less money. So much for the promise to finish out his term.

  5. Great state treasurer and a good man!! Just curious if the folks who didn't quite understand his quote would like to tell my daughter-in-law that God didn't intend her! Mourdock's comment was correct but twisted and the article didn't mention that his opponent and the press let the impression stand that Mourdock meant that the rape was intended. Stupid people!!
