It was well worth the price of dinner just to see this incredible old mansion. It was like walking back in time. Staff was very friendly and we even got a little tour of some of the rooms. Service was excellent, food was not great but it was good. No complaints. I think anyone would totally enjoy the experience of... More

We were told this was THE place in town to eat, but we were not impressed with the food. The ambiance is upscale, but of course, people were in shorts, t-shirts, flip flops, etc. The servers were dressed nicer than the patrons, and they were very attentive. The menu was promising, but the execution was not there. My salmon was... More

We just had our wedding at Tippecanoe Place. I can't overstate how great everything was. Katie, the coordinator, was wonderful. "Whatever you want!" was her most common phase whenever we asked "can we do this...?". Accommodating, professional, and low-stress. Everything from the food, to the set up, to the drink service, was phenomenal. We had our ceremony outside on the... More

I have lived in South Bend all my life and eaten at Tippecanoe Place Restaurant many times over the years. The restaurant has had it's ups and downs, but I can say that it is definitely on the up-swing! My husband and I had dinner there last evening for Restaurant Week and ate on the newly installed patio dining area!... More

We had dinner at Tippecanoe Place while staying next door at the Oliver Inn recently. The food and service are very good, but for us the highlight of the evening was the opportunity to tour the entire mansion afterward. Built in 1889, it was the residence of Clement Studebaker, a co-founder of the Studebaker vehicle manufacturing firm. Studebaker lived in... More

Traveling around our great mid-west, we happened upon the beautiful little town of South Bend and enjoyed lunch today at the Tippecanoe Place Restaurant. What a beautiful mansion, inside and out! This is affordable fine dining at it's best! My very berry salad (greens with strawberries and blueberries) topped with a grilled chicken breast was great, served with a warm... More

We had been to the Studebaker Museum earlier in the day and thought we would carry out the "theme" by having dinner in the Studebaker Mansion. We had a self- guided tour ( they gave us a nice informational brochure to use) What an interesting place - just loved the craftsmanship on the main wood carved staircase! Was not too... More

One of the best restaurants we have ever enjoyed! We had the baked brie for an appetizer. My husband had the prime rib, and I had the chicken. Everything was nicely presented and very tasty. We enjoyed a bottle of wine as well. The wait staff was very friendly and efficient. When the waiter brought the wine, he gave us... More

We ate lunch June 5 and were pleasantly surprised. The service has improved 200% and the food was very good. We will be returning again for both lunch and dinner.
