Indiana Restaurant Review
- For a Good Time Call...
|Pass Times in
Valparaiso in my kind of place: relaxing, good food, attractive,
laid back. It is well-known as a restaurant for casual

types. You can't beat good food, drink and good old fashioned
people-watching. Okay, so maybe people-watching is the best for
first dates, but you get the idea.
