A staple in Elkhart with great food

This place wins "Best Steak in Elkhart County" on a regular basis. I've been going here since I was a little guy. Anytime someone suggests it as a place to eat, it is always a top choice.

Annual family get togethers here. The steaks are always amazing. It can get kind of noisy in the dining room, but it has never kept us from enjoying our company. Service is great.

The atmosphere is casual, jeans & decent tee shirt acceptable. The burgers are so good they were listed in a burger book and the steaks are pretty tasty too. The service is given with a smile😊 I have eaten here several times & will continue to do so when I'm on that side of town. For a casual dining experience... More

Atmosphere is informal and comfortable. They are known for there steaks, I have enjoyed everything that I have tried off the menu. If it is your first time make sure to either try the Bar Fish or the Steak for two, both are real stand outs.

The meal is really good the waitresses are very friendly. These two sections. One for family and then the other side is the bar. The owners are very friendly. We rather go there and very seldom go anywhere else.

We have only ordered the prime rib and mushrooms. Both are delicious. Friday, Saturday and Mondays is when the prime rib is served. Local, non chain, hometown place with excellent service.

Heinnies is a local bar and restaurant. Not elegant or fancy but they make the best prime rib in Elkhart. They have several cuts so you can get as large or as small a piece as you want. I usually get the smallest and it is plenty. The sides are traditional, salad bread and potatoes. The reason to go to... More
