Strongbow is now closed. It is to reopen in fall 2015 as Valley Kitchen & Bar. Strongbow's was a fine dining restaurant. I think Valley will be more organic.

Strongbow restaurant in Valparaiso, IN was known for their famous turkey dinners. It was sold to new owners in the last several years. They ruined this well known eating establishment. It has now closed FOREVER! What a shame!

Prepare for a Mother's day feast everyday. Fresh turkey is the centerpiece, but various meats compete for your attention. Sides of all varieties abound and dessert is a waist-land of bakery acumen. Avoid holidays and post church Sundays as crowd approximates D-day

New ownership has ruined what had been a unique and high quality restaurant. Terrible hard wooden seat chairs and bar stools in the 'lounge'. Awful. Soiled and greasy carpeting in dining room. Un-infomed servers. Complete collapse of a formerly great restaurant.

It's not possible for 1 company to own the corner of NW In and do a good job. Don't you have enough money?

Unfortunately Strongbow's is closing in April. Their bakery was fantastic and the atmosphere was great. We had several Christmas parties and it was always very cheery. When they changed hands things kind of went downhill.
