Brewery
$$
“A prized home brewery turned pro, Crooked ewe has great views of the Saint Joesph River. Their high end food menu will not disappoint the foodie in your group. Located in an old FOP completely renovated. Only drawback is the kids/family area is much separated (on the second floor) from the great bar/taproom area.”

“Their tagline is "HISTORIC, LOCALLY OWNED AND SOPHISTICATED AS HELL". Pretty much sums it up. On the pricey side for South Bend, but they deliver, so you definitely get what you pay for! The food is creative and outstanding quality. The staff is very well trained and friendly. The bar is classy with a great wine, spirits and craft brew selection. If you like upscale, they won't disappoint.”
