“History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

This was the private home of the family head of Studebaker Wagon/Automotive factory complex. The building had detiorated over time and was restored and turned into a restaurant. The food is upper middle of the road, but the interior is museam quality. The best part of Tippecanoe Place is touring all of the fantastic rooms. You can see how the very rich lived at the turn of the century.

“NOT tired restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

My husband and I dined at the Tippecanoe Place last night. The food was excellent - prime rib and filet. The service great. And don't forget to try the dessert cart. We will certainly return again. We also enjoy the brunch.

“tired restaurant”

Tired menu , mediocre food, poor service , freezing inside. Don't bother . The waitress couldn't remember who ordered what , the heat didn't seem to be on and the food was average at best.

“Not What I Remember”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

We went to dinner at Tippecanoe last night with family in a white stretch limo for a fun family night. The restaurant is beautiful and decorated for Christmas. It was slow being Friday after Thanksgiving which was okay because we could talk and laugh without disturbing others. Waitress was just okay leaving for periods of time and we could not find her. We started with drinks and I had to ask for refills on my water otherwise no glasses refilled. We ordered dinner and rolls came which were warm and good. Spinach salad was just right and came as house salad with entree. Another's had wedge salad and that too was good. The prime rib was ordered as medium and was dry - never saw this before. I had portabella mushroom ravioli and it was very good. Others had scallops and rissotto which was good as well. Waitress never asked about more drinks and we had to ask to see the dessert tray. I want to believe this was unusual and will try dinner there again or maybe I will try another place - time will tell.

“Great Ambiance, Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Historic Mansion converted into restaurant and bar. Great atmosphere, good wine list and menu choices. Somewhat pricey
