The friendly and knowledgeable staff made our visit to Satek Winery very enjoyable. Lots of great wines to choose from with lots of local ingredients including Indiana's signature Traminette grape. Free tastings include 8 different varieties (and some get a chocolate pairing!)

Glendarin Hills Golf Club

Reviewed By Mike D - Beaver, Pennsylvania

My son in law and I played here on Saturday. It's a challenging link style course. The fairways were cut perfectly and the greens were fast and ran true.
We will probably play this course at least once a year.
It might be pricey for some, but it's worth it if you love golf.
They do have a range to hit balls and a very large practice green.

Briali Vineyards

Reviewed By Chris O - Chicago, Illinois

While driving home from our week long road trip, my husband and I stopped that this winery. The ladies were very friendly and welcoming. There's a fee ($5) for tasting, but it's waived if you buy a couple of bottles. Although their wines were pricier than we normally spend, we bought two bottles of Pinot Noir because it was delicious!

Normally we don't buy reds from Indiana wineries because we can get good California reds from our local store. However their wines are really good. We were pleasantly surprised!

There's actually two right off the expressway - both worth the stop! (Good signage too.)

Reviewed By saxsellers - Terre Haute, Indiana

My wife and I stopped here after seeing them on TripAdvisor. If you like small batch breweries, this place is great. We were able to try several different brews in the taproom and the bartender was great at describing and recommending what to try. We ended up buying a growler and a four-pack of different types of beer. They also have a location on their website to schedule an appointment for a tour of the brewery. We didn't take the tour due to time, but like I previously said, the bartender was as friendly as could be, was able to talk about some brews close to our region, and recommend some great restaurants in the area. If we're in Angola again, I plan on stopping by again!

Zollner Golf Course

Reviewed By ChiefGuru - Decatur, Indiana

Zellner is located on the campus of Trine University. It is an 18–hole championship golf course with beautiful landscape, mature tree lined fairways, undulating and curving fairways, scenic views and hilly terrain. The changes in elevation add to the beauty as well as the challenges of the tract. The greens were wonderfully maintained and putted true. The course offers a full-length driving range, large putting green, short range with practice bunker, golf shop, snack station, bar service, banquet facility, and private instruction by a PGA Professional. They are a par 71 course, length 6,384 yards from back tees and rating / slope of 69.9 / 121. In 2012, they hosted the NCAA Division III Women's Golf National Championship. They too have been the site of National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) golf championships, Indiana PGA Assistant Championships, Indiana PGA Junior Championships and Indiana Open qualifiers. This course is fun and fair. You owe it to yourself to play it.

Mulligans Restaurant and Pub

Reviewed By Kaitlin S - Arnold, Maryland

The atmosphere here is the reason to go. There's a lovely pub, there's live music on Friday nights, and the booths are cosy and have walls in between so it's easier to keep conversation with those that you're with. My dad brought us here because he had been once before and loved the prime rib that was on special that night. When we went more recently, the prime rib was not on special and it wasn't even on the regular menu. I ordered the tilapia and and crab cake, which was delicious, although it's hard to get used to another kind of crab other than our delicious Maryland crab. My parents ordered a steak. They found the steak to be dry and chewy. The soup was delicious, as was the spinach salad and dinner rolls. Our waitress was sweet, but she seemed to forget us all the time. We asked for ketchup with our fries and she must have been gone for ten minutes. When she returned, she said she had to "hunt it down". Why the heck would a simple bottle of ketchup be so difficult to find. If they are not kept on the table, than they should be easily accessible to the wait staff. The only other minor complaint we had was that the glass covers on the tables made our plates slide around any time we tried to cut something on them. It was a good meal and we'd go back.

Trine State Recreation Area

Reviewed By Paul S - Marion

Trine State Recreation Area is managed by Pokagon State Park and it seems to play Cinderella to its sister park, getting the leftover funding and staffing. We considered staying there but literally could not find any information on the cabins. Even the park brochure lists the information and reservations for the cabins and lodge at the bigger park and points out rooms, cabins, and conference facilities open year round. Some other reviews say the cabins at Trine are also open year round, but it does not say so in the brochure. It has a nice paragraph about the family cabins but does not say when they are open or if there is a minimum group size or length of stay. Also, as others have noted, the cabins may be located more than a mile from the entrance gate, but they are just a few yards from the I-69 frontage road and there is no sound barrier between the cabins and the road or the road and the interstate so there is traffic noise in the background. Fishing from the bank of Gentian Lake is not allowed, and we could not fish from the handicapped pier as we could not obtain a license or determine the special bag limits or specific lake rules as the entrance station and welcome center were both closed at ten on a Monday morning. There are several miles of trails but only number three, which mostly parallels the park road, is accessible.
