Then location is something to see. The service was good. The majority of the food was ok with a nice presentation. Halibut was well done. The Prime Rib which the menu says is a specialty, was poor. The prime rib was not a quality piece of meat and had been reheated. I got medium and not medim rare as requested.... More

When I was learning about the STUDEBAKER MUSEUM in South Bend, I ran across the information for this restaurant, it being a part of the Studebaker legacy. The reviews were mostly good so we tried it. We were NOT DISAPPOINTED! The building, on the inside, is beautiful, our service was top notch, and our meals were everything we could have... More

We had reservations for Sunday brunch after mass last weekend. We arrived a little before noon for our seating. We were placed in the garden room and we really enjoyed the area. The buffet was full of eggs, potatoes, ham, beef, fruit, salads and breads. The buffet food was great, I felt that dessert was lacking. That was cookies, muffins... More

I have read the reviews of this restaurant and I know when some places rest on their past reputation or "aren't what they used to be". I came in to book a dinner for the car club I am in and we ordered off the menu. Wife had the scallops - and they were EXCELLENT. I ordered the "special" it... More

Went for lunch. Our server touted the French Dip Sandwich. It wasn't great. Meat was tough and overcooked. The building is something to see and is part of the history of South Bend. That's the draw.

Every metro weekly has a "Best of" issue. The Metro Times in Detroit. Westword in Denver. And, the Village Voice in New York. And, invariably, in each of those issues is the category "Best Restaurant When Someone Else is Paying." Tippecanoe Place might take that honor in South Bend. But, barely. Tippecanoe Place bills itself as "A tradition started by... More

We went with another family for Sunday Brunch. The food did not disappoint. I would have been fine with all of the fresh fruit, but the waffles were great and the made to order omelet station had many fresh choices choices, he had at least 8 burners going so the wait was very minor. The service was great even with... More

Had dinner on a Tuesday evening. I had the chef's pasta, which was shrimp and scallops in a cream sauce over angel hair. My wife had the New York Strip. We both enjoyed our meals. The staff was attentive and courteous. While there may be better restaurants in South Bend, this one was not bad. Plus I got to roam... More

Has been around for a long time and is showing it's age. Old outside as well as inside. Interesting to see how the once rich and famous lived BUT you don't get to see much of it. Overall just average. For me its like living off their reputation.
