This is a MUST TRY for anyone that has a few hours to spend... This gem of a place is hidden in a small and I mean small town of Perkinsville, Indiana. Hidden amidst the trees across the street from a small river and some older homes, this old tavern turned restaurant is a delight for palette. The CHEF prepared... More

Part of the draw of this restaurant is the tailgating option while waiting for your table. I get that, but when you have no idea when/if you will get a table, it's tough to plan an evening. Why don't they just take your name when you pull in and give you your dining options then? Last night we had the... More

Solid 4 stars here. Went on a week day and went early to avoid the crowds and chaos and so glad we did. The great - Perkinsville Pork! This is very close to a European weiner schnitzel. Tasty and with good parmesan crust on the outside. Did soak up the excess grease on the plate before eating it though. $23... More

We come here once a year with a group of friends to celebrate our anniversary. It's only 20 minutes from Fishers where we live. We go early, before they even open, to secure our parking spots in the lot and tailgating begins. We bring our chairs, full coolers, picnic supplies, appetizers etc. We have a great time tailgating before our... More

Been to Bonge's Tavern a few different times for business meetings. They have a limited menu but the specials are always very good.

Long drive and food was average at best. Meatballs were subpar and a few in our group thought the bbq sauce overwhelmed the duck. I thought this place would be on the same level as Oakley's and it wasn't even remotely close. I wouldn't go back or recommend.

Very unique and eclectic tavern and the food is outstanding. We've never been disappointed except when we arrived too late to get in at a reasonable hour - our fault - not theirs!

Bonge's Tavern is hidden away in the little town of Perkinsville. It occupies an old storefront with old Indiana small town ambiance. But the cooking is as good as that in the best city restaurants. I prefer a restaurant with only a few items on the menu. When there's only a few, it is easier to believe that each dish... More

It had been several years since I had been at Bonge's Tavern. Driving to Perkinsville on country roads was a pleasure that shouldn't be missed. Taking the longer road adds to the attraction of Bonge's. The food at Bonge's is terrific. I look forward to making this an annual event. The downside is having to wait an hour or two... More
