Martinis Restaurant in Valparaiso

Welcome to Martinis, Valparaiso’s original scratch kitchen restaurant.

We think you’ll agree, when it comes to food, people love variety. What can be better than an Italian restaurant that serves authentic dishes made from the freshest ingredients. Or maybe it’s a Greek restaurant, where the seafood is brought in fresh daily and the cuisine is prepared from scratch.

Of course, nothing beats a steakhouse for tender, flavorful, medium-rare filet mignon; cooked to perfection and seasoned with authentic spices.

Now imagine a modern, casual restaurant that combines all these restaurants under one roof, plus Northwest Indiana’s best outdoor dining experience. That’s what you’ll find at Martinis Restaurant.


Chef Louie honed his seafood skills living on an Island in the Mediterranean. Maybe that’s how he pulls them in from Chicago and parts unknown!


Growing up in the Legendary East Coast Culinary Scene raised the Steaks in Valpo. These steaks are cooked fresh and will melt in your mouth!

What is a Scratch Kitchen Restaurant?

So, what is a scratch kitchen restaurant? According to Chef Louie, “a scratch kitchen restaurant only serves food that is fresh, and made from freshest, best ingredients.”

But Chef Louie’s insatiable drive to please his customers doesn’t stop with using fresh ingredients. “Every ingredient served on the Martinis scratch menu is created from raw ingredients, including the methods of producing it. From start to finish, our food is made without shortcuts.”

Restaurant with Bar | Valpo’s Best Martini, Wine and Beer

While Chef Louie likes it fresh, it’s his better half that runs the bar and staff. Sophie has the same scratch restaurant state-of-mind as her husband and partner. Sophie personally designed the recently renovated bar and lounges from scratch…what else!

And when it comes to the bar menu, you can’t touch the selection of craft beer, wine and cocktails, especially the East Coast Martinis’. While most restaurants with a bar will hire a bartender, Sophie enlists the credentials of Mixologists to keep Martinis ahead of the game. What else could you expect from a restaurant called Martinis?

Family Restaurant with Pizza, Burgers and Kid Friendly Prices

But don’t confuse this popular date night restaurant as a sports bar. Martinis has two modern dining spaces for the entire family. From a variety of hamburgers to hand tossed pizzas.

And as a family restaurant, Martinis has special prices for your kids. Nothing makes Louie & Sophie happier than welcoming families.

But it’s more than just family friendly prices and cool atmosphere that makes Martinis’ Valpo’s best pizzeria and burger joint. Chef Louie’s pizza dough and sauces are made from scratch.
