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.

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
