Been a fan of Swingbelly’s for years. Recently checked out the new location. Food and service was great. Worth the drive out to the new location if you aren’t already in the neighborhood.

Foods you would find at an average American restaurant. No stand outs for me. Been here several times. Nice atmosphere, clean. Good service.

Our company buys from Swingbelly's often. It's close by and locally owned. It's always been a big deal in Michigan City. Food is fresh, love the chipsters! Thicker potato chip they make themselves. They will deliver depending on the order size.

You'd be missing a great place for a family meal if you pass it up. Plenty of seating, and perfect menu for eating out without going broke. Family of five can eat for $60-70.

Since they have moved locations the prices have gone up, and food quality has gone down. The burger I ordered medium well, came out with bloody juice on the plate, and the meat tasted mushy like ut had been frozen and cooked soggy. Will not...More
