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.

  1. This is still my favorite Mexican restaurant in town. What I do love about the new version is it is much quieter than the most recent version. TV's were off, the music wasn't too loud, and the wait staff were not hyperactive like they had been the past few times I had been there. I just wish they would bring back the MOLE for the enchiladas!

  2. Not a bad paper. There is a need for local community news and city government issues. Don't really need the owner's constant national political rants. We all know where they stand by now.

  3. What nice people. Menard should've known better than to team up with the guy who robbed and drove Conseco to ashes. I'm surprised Timothy Durham isn't involved in this.

  4. Hello, I am Maris Peters, currently living in Texas city, USA. I am a widow at the moment with three kids and i was stuck in a financial situation in August 2014 and i needed to refinance and pay my bills. I tried seeking loans from various loan Companies both private and corporate but never with success, and most banks declined my credit. But as God would have it, I was introduced to a Man of God a private loan lender who gave me a loan of $65,000USD and today am a business owner and my kids are doing well at the moment, if you must contact any firm or company with reference to securing a loan without collateral , no credit check, no co signer with just 2% interest rate and better repayment plans and schedule, please contact Mr William David. He doesn’t know that am doing this but am so happy now and i decided to let people know more about him and also i want God to bless him more.You can contact him through his email: Davidloanfirm@yahoo.com

  5. It is beyond me how anyone can think this was a "bad deal" for the state! If they could take the money back then, yes, but they can't! Protections were built in the agreement. Now, if they roll the roads up and take them away, I will agree that it was a bad deal. Otherwise, the only way to have paid for the infrastructure that was badly needed was for the state to issue bonds....that is a four letter synonym for debt folks!!
