Wow - unbelievable the food that was available for Sunday's brunch. There was such an array of food that everyone in our party was satisfied beyond belief. I highly recommend the Sunday brunch. The experience was well worth the price.

Loved this place! I so enjoy architectural history and this former Studebaker home is just what I like to see. Besides the amazing interior, the food was wonderfully prepared. I highly recommend going here to enjoy both the ambiance and food.

This place is an important part of South Bend History. I encourage anyone to go see the building and read the history throughout. However, I recently ate supper there for the first time in about 30 years. Honestly, I was depressed when we left. One...More

If you are a person that doesn't go out much for dinner you will probably be OK here. Typical fare. Prime rib, steak, a couple of fish dishes. Nothing inventive, cutting edge. The building is pretty, the Sunday Brunch is fine. Dollar for dollar though...More

This is a nice restaurant with delicious food. The live piano is awesome. Some friends have celebrated their weddings here and is really a nice place for doing it.

A 30 footer is going to be tough. Just getting up the drive may be a challenge. You may be able to find a spot on a side street, and walk. Call the restaurant, they may have some ideas.
