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.

We've been eating at Strongbow for 30 plus years and it's been our favorite restaurant. However it is now under new ownership. They said they wouldn't change everything. At first that was true but slowly changes have been made for the worse. The gravy isn't as good. The color is different and the taste isn't as good. The bakery isn't... More

I have visited Strongbow Inn many times over the years. But my husband has never been, which we find so ridiculous since we live right here in Valpo! Yesterday for his birthday, my parent's and I took him to Strongbow for his first turkey experience! I had not been in some time and I have to say I was not... More

We visited Strongbow for our Mother's Day brunch with a party of 9. It was refreshing to see that changes in staffing have been made to accommodate special events. Much to our surprise we were seated immediately and the staff was friendly and accommodating. The new brunch layout was great, the food was hot and good, and as always the... More

Strongbow's is a tradition in Valparaiso. If you go there you must get the turkey for which they are known. The cooking is home-style, nothing fancy. Portions are large and filling.

Since the restaurant changed hands, the service has declined due to less wait staff being available. The buffet is one of the reasons we come (not only on holidays, but during the year), has been re-designed and the flow around the food has become very congested. We were last there the beginning of March, and when we got our soft... More

While we have gone here several times in the past and been pleased, yesterday's Easter buffet was a huge disappointment. Not sure if there has been an ownership change, but the problems began immediately with a 30 minute wait, along with 75 other diners, although we had confirmed reservations. A glance into the actual dining room showed 20+ empty tables,... More

We went for Easter Brunch and the food was standard fare-nothing spectacular. But the front of the house was a disaster and so disorganized. We arrived 20 minutes early for our reservation and were paraded around the restaurant only to wait in another lobby. For a 12:30 pm reservation we weren't seated until 12:50 pm and only after much prodding.... More
