We stopped in on a Friday evening. The place was crowded but our server Katie was friendly and prompt stopping by often to make sure if we needed anything. We ordered the usual hamburgers and tried the Irish Nachos (French fries topped with melted cheddar cheese, bacon bits, scallions and ranch dressing). They were awesome! We live quite a distance...

Traveled back to NW IN to visit family and HAD to go to Schoop's. As good as ever ! Great burgers and fries. I even had a Chicago-style dog which was very good. Don't miss the Green River soda and/or Green River milkshake. Unique to the area/can't get them anywhere else in U.S. ; of which I'm aware anyway. Servers... More

Fast service, comfort food, love the french fries, sandwiches and burgers are very good. Seat yourself, large sodas, refills on coffee. Go-to place for lunch.

We frequented this restaurant while we attended Valparaiso University. We have gone back several times over the years and it remains the same. The burgers are thin with slightly crispy edges. My personal favorite is the MIckey which has double cheese. The cheese fries are also amazing, especially if you really indulge and have them with a fresh made ice... More

We've gone to schoops for breakfast on Sunday's for several years. Food quality and preparation has suffered and tables are dirty and the seats are coming off the booths. We've taken our breakfast business elsewhere

Stopped for eggs and potatoes.. Explained gluten allergy if possible to cook in clean separate pan.... NO WAY POSSIBLE! PERIOD?!?! Sad. Waitress felt bad, going back and forth asking cooks. She was nice. How incredibly pathetic of an establishment in this day and age, with 3 tables ONLY, to refuse a $20.00 breakfasts tab with (my husband ordering), over NOT... More

We love Schoop's! The breakfast and burgers are great. It is like a 1950's restaurant and our service has always been good. We have been too the Portage, Valpo, and Michigan City Schoop's and they are all god.

I had heard from quite a few folks that Schoop's was a must-try for a hamburger. So, one day when I was driving in the area during lunch time, I made a quick stop in for a burger. Meh. The service was adequate. The diner was clean. The burger was a basic grill burger. The fries were hot and crisp.... More

Anyone that would treat a customer like that doesn't deserve to own a business.Would NEVER set foot in there again! Didn't like their greasy food anyway no big loss!

I've been to Schoops many times over the years. My favorite thing they offer is chocolate chip pancakes with strawberries and whipped cream on them! They are generously sized and have a nice amount of chocolate chips in them. The service is usually good. The establishment is also usually clean. The decor is fun to look at. I've been here...
