Turkey drumsticks are the prized for their dark meat, easy-to-hold shape, and the superb speed they provide when used to row a gravy boat. Treat your taste buds to a stirring ride with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of upscale comfort cuisine at Strongbow Inn in Valparaiso, IN.

The Strongbow Inn's founding family started doling out turkey sandwiches in the 1930s and, over the years, their progeny have grown the establishment into a turkeycentric fine-dining destination. Savory starters such as turkey-liver pate ($4) and turkey-noodle soup ($3–$4.50) serve as a prelude to the traditional entrees roosting in the pages of the dinner menu. A crispy golden crust encases the all-meat turkey pie ($14.95), and chef Russell's breaded and sautéed turkey schnitzel performs a Viennese waltz across a dance floor waxed with lemon-butter sauce ($18.25). Alternatives to the pastiche of poultry dishes include a trio of blue crab cakes with caper mayonnaise ($18.50) or a 12-ounce grass-fed strip steak accompanied by a soil-fed baked potato ($23.75). Suggested wine pairings complement each meal's flavors, flattering individual ingredients with a dozen roses and spoken-word renditions of “Baby's Got Back.”

Strongbow Inn

Eight decades ago, the land that Strongbow Inn now stands on was filled with 1,500 turkeys, gobbling under the guidance of founders Walter and Bess Thrun. The family’s storied history has since been tied to that plot of land, from the construction of Strongbow Inn and US 30 in the ‘40s to the turkeys they continued to raise and dish up until the '80s. Three generations have built the restaurant to its current glory, serving turkey-centric comfort fare in an upscale, white-tablecloth-clad dining room and a casual wood-paneled lounge that made it onto WTTW’s Check, Please!.

The menu showcases fresh poultry in dishes that range from turkey schnitzel to turkey pot pie and Thanksgiving-esque feasts of carved turkey with homemade cranberry sauce and all the trimmings. Poultry-free fare also stakes out a space for itself, boasting grilled lamb chops and crab cakes made in house. Beside each menu item, the restaurant lists ideal wine pairings, such as a Leonard Kreusch with the turkey dinner or an Ecco Domani pinot grigio with the crab cakes.

In a dining room suited for big groups, plates rest near floral centerpieces surrounded by scalloped napkins. Patrons can also sup in the Blue Yonder lounge, where curly chandeliers hang above wooden lattice-backed chairs. Over the lounge’s bar, a populous fleet of model planes hangs from the ceiling ready to skywrite love notes to special guests or dive bomb dates who stole the last bite of pie.
