    Going to Bonge's is a real treat - we plan on going there if possible on every trip to Indiana. It is great being able to make a reservation in advance. The food and ambiance has been fabulous every time we have visited in the last 20 years! And, all of the employees were welcoming and enthusiastic.

    What a fantastic dining experience! Rarely do things live up to expectations, but Bonge’s did. Chip, the server, was informative, funny, and efficient. The ambiance is unique and memorable…I mean, where else can you tailgate before or after dinner in the parking lot? And last but not least, the food. Well, let’s just say you’ll have an incredibly difficult time deciding what to order, but not to worry, because everything offered is top notch. Our group of eight, ordered six different choices-all were ranted and raved about from the triggerfish to the duck to the walleye to the brisket, … Incredibly memorable evening. Plan ahead and book your reservations because it is busy, busy, busy. You will be amazed.

    This was our first time at Bonges. My wife and I came for my birthday. The food was great and our server was very friendly when he was around. There was an issue with the water and drinks tasting and smelling very strange, and because of the infrequency of our server coming around and the difficulty I had getting his attention, I ended up sharing my wifes drink. For those reasons I don't know if the value was worth the cost. As the cost was quite high for the two of us. But I would definitely return for the tasty food on perhaps a less busy day.

    The staff at Bongi Tavern was very accommodating and very friendly. We enjoyed our steaks and shrimp. The salad was delicious as was the dressing which was made by scratch both the vinaigrette and the ranch or excellent. The only problem that we came across is at the oysters were very fishy and we were unable to finish those. Everything else was fantastic.

    Harger Duck - perfect as always! Tomato soup with house made bacon - just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, they figured out a way! Lemon cheesecake with raspberries-even my husband who says he doesn’t like sweets couldn’t stop eating it. This place always delivers a home run!!!

    Had heard all of the positive things about Bonge's and had high expectations. Must say that they delivered on every detail. Our server Courtney was excellent...pleasant, great suggestions, patient with our questions, absolutely made the night a lot of fun. Jake - the owner - stopped by to visit. Food was so good....from the Perkinsville Pork to the Harger Duck, Lamb Chops, "comically large" pork chop, and chef's pasta. Loved the homemade porkbelly/bacon and tomato soup. The sugar cream cake and flourless torte were perfect. Can't wait to go back and want to try a beautiful Saturday afternoon and be a part of pre-dinner tailgating.

    Had a great dining experience. We’ve heard about the uniqueness of this out of the away establishment and we are happy that we made the 30 minute trip from Indy. Great menu, ambiance and service. Our server Mike was very personable and gave us great advice and went to the kitchen with a special request. One of the most memorable restaurant visits we have made in Indiana.

    Just what we needed! My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves! The food was delicious! Our service was great! We got oysters and they were very tasty! I got the king’s cut prime rib so I could take it home. My husband got their specialty pork tenderloin and throughly enjoyed it! The Chef came out and suggested I make a hash with my leftover prime rib so we plan to have it with eggs for Sunday brunch. We live an hour away and it is well worth the drive. Great road trip date!

    The staff were friendly and helpful, we also talked to the owner who answered many of our questions about the restaurant. We got the Perkinsville pork loin as an appetizer for the table, it was delicious! For the entrees, we had the chicken, the pork chop and two orders of harger duck. The pork chop is enormous, there were leftovers for that and a little of the chicken. Both were great. We ate all of the duck breast, the jalapeno cream cheese went great with the duck and all wrapped up in bacon, heaven on a plate. We finished the meal sharing a couple orders of the sugar cream cake with blueberry, also great. This is a great place, we'll be back!

    Been going to Bonge’s for years. Always in the summer with a party of 8. Tailgating for at least 2 yrs & therefore consume several drinks before being seated. Did something different last night. Went w/wife last night. Just the two of us. Wanted to experience what it would be like to just go to dinner there. Said simply…. It was amazing! Wait staff, ambience, & food were a perfect 10.

    There are lots of classier restaurants in and around Indianapolis, but there's something about that drive on Ind. 13 that makes Bonge's so special. Don't know if it's the limited but enticing menu (I'm a Perkinsville Pork fan) or the ambiance, it just adds up to a dining experience. Brought a California cousin on our most recent visit. He was impressed. So, hats off to Chris, our energetic server.

    1st time eating here and it won't be the last. We had smoked prime rib and the filet with shrimp and both were delicious. The cheesy potatoes were outstanding and the asparagus was as well. Portion on the vegetables could have been bigger. The wedge salad is huge and was great as well. The bacon extra while it was excellent wasn't worth the expense. Both the ranch and bleu cheese dressing was great. Avoid the Perkibsville water as it has a strong sulfur smell. Opt for another drink of choice. Her hard cider and my margarita were both great choices. Be prepared to wait for a Saturday reservation, don't just show up. Many people were tailgating in the parking lot waiting on their reservations. Service was excellent.
