Lucrezia Ristorante

We are a high energy Italian trattoria. Our service is more formal, but we are very casual. We have been voted #1 Italian Restaurant in NW Indiana for consecutive years. We make everything from scratch. Leave the passports at home and visit our Italian house!

Reviewed By AnneFDF - Luxembourg City, Luxembourg

We had lunch and dinner several times at Lucrezia's during our stay in the area as there aren't too many places outside the city of Chicago serving quality food according to European or International standard in general, and at affordable prices. I recommend this restaurant to any international traveler as there should be no bad surprises. Lucrezia's enjoys a good reputation among the locals.

Portillo's

Home to America's favorite Chicago-style hot dogs, Italian beef, burgers, salads, and chocolate cake.

Reviewed By Neal D - Crown Point, Indiana

If you're from this area you know exactly what you're getting with Portillos. They have over priced hot dogs, burgers, italian beef sandwiches, etc. For the exorbitant price you'd expect big flavor and something that will knock your socks off? Sorry to burst your bubble but it's tasteless beef and your run of the mill char-grilled burgers and dogs that you can get at literally 50 other places for cheaper in the area. Save your time because the lines are extremely long and save your money because you arent getting out of there without spending a minimum of $15-$20 per person while the owners of this establishment are laughing all the way to the bank. Read up, or even stumble into the dozens of other greasy spoon local joints and get the same food for much cheaper why spend more for just a name?

Culver's

Reviewed By atildesley - Melbourne, Australia

In the middle of nowhere is the friendliest, cleanest fast food establishment I've ever come across. Compliments to the management for the staff they have hired. Food is fast and fresh (well, as fresh as a hamburger and fries can get). A welcome respite from the drive between Indianapolis and Chicago!

Eli's Golden Apple and Pancake House

Reviewed By Dustin F - Liberty, Missouri

First and last time going here. Went here with family and only table who had an order waiting. Way to many unnecessary Up charges. Waited over 30 min for food, then steak came out rare when ordered well done, and without the shrimp. Which then would take a long time to get she said, since she placed orders wrong. Crispy chicken sandwich was anything but that, fell apart immediately. Crackers were stale that came with chili. The waitress did give us a senior discount to try to make it right. She apologized several times.

Tavern on Main

Reviewed By Colleen W - Crown Point, Indiana

Nice bar but the regular seating is sort of uncomfortable. The food is very tasty but the menu is rather small. Service has been excellent. Seems like it has become a very popular place downtown Crown Point. We stopped in at 5:00 p.m. on a Saturday and were glad we did. The place filled up quickly after we had arrived. It can get very loud as the place fills up.

Station 21

Reviewed By Cari W

Went out for a Friday night dinner with friends. Ambiance was nice. Drinks were excellent. Good selection of different dishes, including a pasta special. Bruschetta appetizer was delicious. All of our entrees were hearty and hot. Only downfall is lack of parking, but there are plenty of spaces across the street.

Everyone in my group ordered burgers but i wanted something different, so i opted for a fish sandwich. It was a massive sandwich with lettuce, tomato and cheese. Loved it. The fries i jad were also great; crispy and hot! Will definitely be back to this spot.

Pizza Cellar

Reviewed By Behtrip - Washington DC, District of Columbia

This is some of the best pizza we have ever eaten. The staff was awesome and really took care of us when we needed food for the softball team. Super courteous and helped us figure out what we needed to feed 30 people. This is not "commercialized" pizza - it is the real deal authentic Italian and not something you can get just anywhere. Loved it and highly recommend!
