Server was great and attentive. They were having live music which was pleasant. One person ordered a burger and cranberry mimosa. Other ordered a filet(medium). We both felt that everything was under seasoned.

The people working really hustled as best they could - just too many people in a too small area. Server was very apologetic but because it took so long to get our food (45 minutes) and so long to get seated (20 minutes after of reservation time), we could not eat our meal because we were going to a play.

The food was very disappointing but the wine was great!

It was a nice evening. Christmas decorations were up. There was a large party having a work dinner. The food was good except my date ordered the Thad Pai Shrimp and it was too salty. My shrimp pasta dish was very good

We ordered the brisket nachos and the beer pretzel for appetizers. The pretzel was hard when it was brought out to us. The nachos were decent but could have thrown on a little more brisket for the price. I could easily find better appetizers on Lincolnway. We then ordered the enchiladas, salmon and chicken. We all loved our entrees! The salmon was amazing. Our waitress was very attentive, she did a great job. We got to choose where to sit since it wasn’t busy.. we picked right next to the Christmas tree… it was great! Overall good experience.

Pikk's staff worked hard to get us our meal hot and fast. The cost per portions are a bit out of whack. One large soft pretzel with canned "beer cheese" was $7.50 in Valparaiso Indiana? Our meals were OK. Lots of better choices in town

This restaurant has probably the best food we have had in years. The oysters were better than we have had at oyster bars. We also had the Tuna Poke. I ordered Pad Thai and my husband a steak. Everything was phenomenal. I wish we lived closer to Valparaiso just so we could go there all the time.

This was our first time eating here and the food was amazing and for it being a Friday night during the adult trick or treat event we had so much fun. We came in for dinner all dressed in our Halloween costumes and then did a little bat hopping after dinner, but then to end the night off we ended up back here for our last night cap. Food was amazing and our sever was amazing even for just starting a few weeks ago.

Where do I begin? We sat outside in the alley seating. There were lightbulbs out so it was somewhat dark. Really? Lightbulbs? We sat there for about 10 minutes before our waiter took our drink order. Then we waited for about another 10 minutes until the drinks were brought to us even after we asked a bus person to help us. We both ordered the salmon and I had a side of smash potatoes which were actually good. My wife ordered the cream spinach and when it was brought out they must have forgotten the cream. We sent it back and when it returned it was not much better. Due to lightbulbs being missing we had to use our cell phone flashlight to look at the spinach to see if it looks like there was some cream added to it. By the time we were halfway done with our dinner my wife ordered another wine. The wine never made it. The restaurant and waiter both missed on another selling opportunity. All things considered this was not the best night for the restaurant and we will not return for a very very very long time when there are so many other options in town to choose from nor would we highly recommend this restaurant to anyone else.

Bri the manager was totally awesome. There was some trouble from an outside source. Bri and her staff handled it wonderfully. We had their back. But that didn’t spoil the dinner with our friends. Thank you is not enough for the staff at Pikk’s Tavern. The food was great and everyone enjoyed themselves and had full tummies. God Bless everyone there. We will be back. ❤️😊

Great evening. Ambiance on alley outdoor seating could be improved. Not fancier but more comfortable. That did not take away that we could hear and enjoy live music from the venue across the street. Service was great and food was delicious. Highly recommend.

Sent one dish back - I ordered filet medium rare- it came medium well done. The replacement was med rare to medium but was not a filet - thinner cut. Ordered Valpo ice cream dessert and it was totally freezer burned. There were plenty of staff but not well Coordinated, our service slow although our server was nice. Overall very disappointing.

The food and atmosphere were good. Our waitress was not. We waited 30 minutes for her to bring appetizer, which she never put it. She said she did hear us. When them waited another 30 minutes after appetizers got get together come back to take our order. I had to wave her down for service.

Never had a problem before this.
It was a Saturday night so whatever that’s worth. Service was slow, she apologized. Ordered a beer, they were out. So ordered a different one. Then ordered two fillets for me and my guest. She came back after about 10-15 minutes, and said they were out of fillets. At 6:45 pm.
Things happen, I would still give it one more try. Hopefully an off night.

First time eating at Pikks. Great seafood chowda, scotch egg (huge!), caprese salad. Gumbo flavor was great but was served lukewarm. Raw oyster flavor was great but served room temp. Service was adequate. Will definitely go back but will look for improvement in a couple of areas.
