If you just want to get in and out for dinner, go to Applebee's. If you want to have a whole eating experience, Bonge's is for you. We arrived at 5pm on Friday and enjoyed some wine tasting with Gary in the parking lot. Thanks Gary! Tailgated with friends until 7 and then enjoyed a great meal with great wait staff. The owner even sat down at our table for a short chat. What a great night! By the way, the desserts are awesome!!

The food was excellent! Hands down the best crab cake and walleye we've ever had, and I order these items whenever possible. The service was also great, everybody was pleasant. Overall, our Bonge's experience was awesome and we look forward to returning!!

We called Bonge's Tavern four months in advance to make a reservation for my husband's fiftieth birthday celebration. The hostess, Angie, was very accommodating and helpful throughout the process until the actual evening of our party. We and our guests took a party bus from indianapolis to Bonge's and ran into a traffic jam on the interstate which made us about twenty minutes late for our 7:00 reservation. The staff were clearly irritated with us upon our arrival and remained so throughout the evening. We were rushed through dinner, being reminded several times that we had to be out of there by 9:00. Carry out cartons were placed on our tables before our guests had even finished their meals. The hostess told me at 8:50 that she would bring my husbands cake out for"presentation " but we would have to eat it outside. They clearly did not care about us or our twenty three guests, but about the people who were next in line for our tables. The food WAS excellent but our experience was ruined by the staffs rude treatment of us and our guests. We will never return to Bonge's Tavern.

Wow..What a dining experience in a rustic environment with suburb food . This little rustic restaurant with suburb food is a neat experience just close to Perkinsville . In the Summer months you can expect to wait over an hour while drinking in the parking lot. Once you go there you will never stop coming back.

Wonderful eating event. You must begin by tailgating! Wonderful food and atmosphere. It's become a regular destination during summer. Blue cheese wedge is the best ever! Great steaks and perkinsville pork!
