This Whiting, Indiana spot is one of my favorites. An extensive menu is the first surprise, followed by wonderful cooking and attentive staff. The location in the industrial town of Whiting may too come as a surprise, but it is readily accessible from the Chicago Skyway by exiting at Indianapolis Blvd. and driving south.

Meat dishes are impressive and pastas great. Daily specials may include a rack of pork chop (looked great – maybe next time). Fair wine pours also priced reasonably.

This town sponsors the annual pirogi fest in August – check it out.

This is a gem of a town right on Lake Michigan – worth the trip for the views!

OK, so where has this place been all my life?

AnĀ  old-fashioned supper club kind of a place – real food for real people. I had their Carbonara which is prepared with good pancetta with a moderately heavy cream sauce. The house Caesar was tasty and substantial. My buddy had one of the largest pieces of salmon I’ve ever seen on a luncheon portion – it looked great (no complaints from the diner).

This is a small place in an industrial part of NW Indiana – but well worth a visit as it is a short drive from the Chicago Skyway exit at Indianapolis Blvd. Just continue south on Indy Blvd. and look to the right after you pass the White Castle (you won’t feel like any sliders after eating at Keith’s).

They take reservations – ask for the front dining area.

Whiting is also home of the annual Pierogi fest in the summer – the waitresses advertise this important National event on their attire!
