Food good but better in past. New owner may be trying new cooks? For price of meal and drinks, I expected better quality and portion size.Maybe best for lunch only now?

The experience of a Strongbow Sunday brunch is one not ot be missed. The food is delectable, the service a bit slow but they were very busy, the jazz trio was a nice touch.

Dined with 2 friends in their new bar. Service was excellent as was the food. The atmosphere was a little louder than the restaurant would have been but not really bothersome. I will definitely return and recommend this establishment to my friends.

Over priced for half portions. Buffet ran out of food after I placed my order and I was told to get there earlier. It was 6:30!!!

Yes! I love their turkey, best I've ever had. But be ware their menu is not correct!! What is this all about. Think their new owners are reaching out to rob the people of Northwest Indiana. Sorry! we are not as stupid as they think we are. Sorry! but our group will not be back. Also, noticed that the restaurant... More

Strongbows always has the best turkey dishes around (along with other consistently good meals as well) They only served fresh-carved turkey, nothing frozen. Reasonably priced as well. we dine here several times a year and are never disappointed. The garlic/blu cheese house dressing is to die for.

Today was our fourth visit to Strongbow under new ownership and new menu. Enjoy the new choices and traditional menu. Turkey selections from dinners to sandwiches have be excellent. I tried the turkey lasagna and was surprised at how tasty it was and will order it again. Husband tried the turkey fries and thought they tasted like chicken gizzards... I... More

I'm a Valparaiso native, and I've never had a bad experience at Strongbow's until last night. I was there with a group of family members for dinner. It took 2-1/2 hours from sitting down until we *finally* got the bill. The waitress eventually admitted that she hadn't put the order in when she should have - I'm not sure what... More

We had heard so much about this place that our family of 25 made it a point this year to try it. At $35 a person we were all taken aback by how mundane the food was. The turkey was ok. The ham was ok. The stuffing was dry and tasteless. Everyone was pouring gravy over everything. There was no... More

The menu offers little variety unless you want turkey. Well over 75% of the items are turkey based. The house blue cheese salad dressing is outstanding in an otherwise pedestrian menu. Each staff person seemed to be more concerned with what the other staff people were doing or not doing than with their customers.
