little Indiana and family stopped in at Southfork Restaurant and Pub in Mulberry, Indiana for lunch.
At this Clinton County restaurant, in the smallest of small towns, I had the best onion rings I have ever had.
Roberts Southfork Restaurant and Pub in Mulberry, Indiana
We’ve already covered that this is just a teeny tiny Indiana town so imagine our surprise at eating one of the most fabulous meals ever!
Not only was our meal wonderful, but there’s a couple of features found inside this restaurant that totally entertained the kids. Now that is worth any trip, don’t you think?
On the family side of Southfork Restaurant and Pub lies a fish tank that is in the wall over a table! I can’t think of a better place to sit as a family than right there.
There’s also a life-sized Blues Brothers statue and plenty of seating. The menu at this small town restaurant isn’t your typical menu either–it’s filled with Mulberry, Indiana history, trivia, and so much more. What a great idea!
Mulberry, Indiana Restaurant
But aside from the town history, restaurant history, even area history, and a few games for the kids, you’ll find the most important part of any menu: the food. It turns out that you can get really good fish in Indiana, even in a town as small as Mulberry, Indiana.
There was a very sizable fish selection that you don’t normally find in a small town. We’ve heard that people come from far and wide for Southfork Restaurant and Pub seafood–and the onion rings.
At this point I was so hungry (and slightly car sick) that I asked our server for a recommendation on, um, everything! She said that people love the blackened walleye and the whole catfish. Now, it must “officially” be said–the onion rings at Robert’s Southfork Restaurant and Pub are absolutely the best onion rings I have ever had!
I am pretty sure that I ate more than half of that big old platter of onion rings. Hubs very kindly let me have the last one, too. They were so good I am still getting cravings for them. Add in our walleye and catfish and it was a supremely satisfying meal.
Roberts’ Southfork Restaurant and Pub is definitely a place you should mark down and make a point to visit.
Just know that once you try those onion rings you will be making the trip again, and again, and again!
