You need to really plan this one out ahead of time. Try to get your 12 people and a reservation but show up early to tailgate anyway, which is half the fun. Once inside, you really can’t go wrong with anything you order.

I have lived in Indiana for almost three decades and never heard of Bonge's before this year. I don't think I had ever even been near Perkinsville- it is definitely off the beaten path. If you have a large party (12+) like we did you...More

Definitely not a family destination. Thought it was going to be a fun night out, but they won't even consider kids going and not nice about it either. It's out in the middle of nowhere so there's no other option for hungry kids. Don't waste...More

Several of us had the prime rib....the flavor was good but the meat was NOT tender. The potatoes served with it were tasty....the broccoli could have been cooked just a little more. Several in the group had the lake trout.....it was good. However, was it...More

Extremely rude host acted as if we should feel honored that we were seated after an hour and a half wait, then were rushed the whole meal because the waiter said they needed our seats for other guests. The food was mediocre at best and...More
