This restaurant used to be family owned and run for many years and was considered to be one of VALPARAISO's premier eating establishments. It has also been featured on some of the Chicago TV stations as a great place to eat. It has been known for its turkey dinners since it was opened. The family raised turkeys initially and the...

One of the classic restaurants in the area. Excellent atmosphere with unique entrees. Service is very good. Excellent business meal location. A little pricey for family visit.

bland and tasteless food; really do not understand people that talk about this restaurant as having quality food.

Strongbows was bought around a year ago and everything has changed. The friendly staff is almost all gone, the food is different, and the atmosphere is bad. Its like eating at Chilis or Applebees. Not what a fine dining establishment should be. Sadly, the Strongbow name has been tainted by new ownership. Very sad.

We were surprised Sunday when we were told the dinning room was closed and all that was being served was a buffet. Since we came a distance to have a turkey dinner we took the buffet. The turkey was very good, as usual but we missed the dinning in the dinning room and being served our dinner instead taking a... More

The Bow bar at Strongbow Inn is exceptional! Great atmosphere and really good healthy appetizers and sandwiches. Almost everything has Turkey in it and my husband isn't usually a fan, but he thoroughly enjoyed the turkey flatbread and I loved the Turkey Salad. The beers and wines have among them a local flare, Shady Creek Winery is one of our... More

Had loved Strongbow for years, but we have dined there for the last time. Since the sale of the restaurant many things have changed. The menu is different, and we miss the variety of turkey offerings like the Turkey Oscar and Turkey Schnitzel. The suggested wine pairings were also absent. Frankly, I am not interested in turkey testicles as an... More

Overall, I thought this was a very nice venue for a wedding reception. The food was plentiful and the staff was very accommodating.

The food was good, not great. This place is great if you want a lot of food and traditionally prepared American classics and comfort food. I had the country fried turkey and it was a tasty, satisfying meal.

Good place to go for their buffet - lots of selections. Nice when they have the piano player there -- adds to the experience.
