I cannot say enough great things about Strongbow! Not only is their food fantastic, but their staff was absolutely amazing! They made sure everything was how we wanted it to be. The cake was decorated beautifully and it tasted fantastic! Their prices are extremely fair, less than a lot of other places I looked. Everything was perfect!

Strongbow restaurant and inn was just wonderful on our wedding day and through all of the planning! Because they offer the reception venue, do the catering themselves, and the cake too, they can offer a great package at a great price! We worked with Lori Daley, and she was just wonderful! Always got back to us right away, let us know about the plan and timeline we needed to work within, and was always extremely flexible! Any problem, issue, or little extra that we came up with she always said was "No problem!" and made the whole experience great! The food is all wonderful, and we got to take home any leftovers as well. I honestly have no complaints for this vendor! :)

My fiance and I chose to do cupcakes for our wedding cake instead of the traditional tiered cake. We chose Strongbow because they have amazing carrot cake and we hoped they would also do a good job with our cupcakes. We were not disappointed.

Strongbow accommodated our wishes and provided us with three different flavors of cupcake with three different shades of frosting. They matched my gorgeous green color almost perfectly! The cupcakes were impeccable, they were moist, delicious, and most importantly, delivered on time.

Strongbow also gave us an excellent deal on our cake - we had been searching Chicago for reasonable cupcake vendors and kept seeing price tags for upwards of 1k. Strongbow gave us 200 cupcakes and a top tier cake, plus delivery for 500 bucks. Amazing deal, amazing cake. I was going to go back to Strongbow anyway for that carrot cake, but I'm beyond impressed with their wedding cupcake selection. I would definitely recommend Strongbow for all of your cake needs!

EVERYBODY commented on how delicious our cake was!! Strongbow's buttercream frosting is the best! We had chocolate sour cream cake with fresh sliced strawberries and a marble cake with french silk filling. YUMM!! Can't wait for our first anniversary to bust open that anniversary top tier!

Our cake was AMAZING!! I knew from the moment I sampled their cake at a bridal show that it was what I wanted on our day! We met with our consultant Deb and she showed us several books of cakes that they had done and helped us decide what we wanted. We got a small cake with two different flavors that we requested in advance, but while we were there she also went to the bakery and selected a third flavor and we got a small sampling of that as well. We decided on a 3 tier square cake and we had to provide our own ribbon to use on the bottom of each tier and they color matched the decorative icing to the ribbon perfectly! In addition we ordered a sheet of chocolate and a sheet of white and a half sheet of banana so that our guests had options, and it also brought the cost down considerably. They double stack the sheet cakes so that it looks like a regular piece of weding cake and the guests never know the difference! Since my husband's favorite cake is banana our entire cake was banana and it was amazing. My only issue was that I am not a fan of chocolate, and when we ate the cake, the frosting between the layers was chocolate, and I was just expecting the Italian buttercream. It was still delicious, like I said I'm just crazy and not really a fan of chocolate :) This bakery is phenomenal, and I will use them again for any cake I get!!

Strongbow was so helpful and easy to communicate with. I have a very busy schedule and was able to do much of it by e-mail. They made my wedding cake exactly the way I liked and the banana cake is the best. Thank you.

The staff at Strongbow Inn was ready and willing to help make my wedding the perfect day I've always dreamed of. From the cost to the actual facility, there isn't one thing I was unhappy with. The fireplace in the Charles Room was the beautiful backdrop for the ceremony and the Caroline Room provided a marvelous setting for the reception. The food was absolutely wonderful and was the cheapest of all the facilities and caterers we checked out, which was just yet another advantage. The on-site bakery created a one-of-a-kind cake that was stunning and delicious. There was not one aspect that the staff was unwilling to take on to make the whole experience what my husband and I wanted. I would recommend Strongbow Inn to anyone who is seeking a wedding venue in Northwest Indiana!

I could probably fill this entire review with all the wonderful comments I got from guests. We had a devils food cake stuffed with chocolate mousse and a buttercream frosting. It was delicious and everyone, myself included, thought it was amazing. The vendor also made it very easy to select the cake since you'll be sold after trying a piece at the tasting. They also had a lot of photo books you could browse through for various designs. They took care of everything, even putting my cake topper on top. We did a 3 tier cake as well as a sheet cake in back. It was a bit on the pricier side, but I think it was worth it to have such good cake at the wedding.

Strongbow Inn was fabulous! Being an out of town Bride was a little tough with some of my vendors but Strongbows was amazing. They were really flexible and the venue was beautiful for our Fall Wedding. The food was amazing and really affordable. The cake comes with the package which is really nice and there were a lot of different choices from their wonderful bakery. I could not have had a better experience with Strongbows! They were also very flexible with my Florist and the DJ as well.

Strongbow provided not only a beautiful cake, but also a delicious one. It was by far the best tasting cake I have ever had, especially for a wedding cake. They completely delivered on what I had asked for. My only criticism is that if you go there, know exactly what you want. I had to provide the concept for the design competely. I would have liked some creative ideas from them based on what I was looking for, as I am not a cake designer. Overall, I am completely happy and would definitely recommend them!

Our wedding cake was the most delicious I have EVER eaten. We wanted something unusual and special, and we were accommodated perfectly. Our cake was frosted with frosting that exactly matched our junior bridesmaids' dresses, with our snowflake theme mimicked in fondant. Many people who saw our photos afterward said that our cake looked like a piece of artwork. It truly was. HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommended!!
