Who We Are
We’ve been calling Michigan City Home for over 30 years!
It all started back when I was 9. I came up from Florida for the summer to help at the restaurant. Every summer since then I have been back here working. In 2014 dream finally came true when I was informed about Swingbelly’s NEW location. Without hesitating I said yes! I’m looking forward to serving all of my customers with a friendly greeting and a smile
Bret joined the Swingbelly’s team in 1986. He was hired on as a cook and became the kitchen manager in 1990. Bret takes care of all day to day operations along with creating all the house-made soups and daily features. He enjoys being able to share his passion for food with our many loyal customers.
I am a waitress at Swingbellys and have been for about 12 years. When I was 15, and really needing a job, I went and applied at Swingbellys and was hired on the spot. Having worked here so long it has become to feel more like a family to me.
Natalie started at Swingbelly’s as a hostess in 1991. She is currently the office manager as well as the daytime floor supervisor. Even though she has held many different positions, serving is the one she loves most because she can connect with customers and get to know them better. Bret and Natalie, met at Swingbelly’s in 1991 and later married in 1997.
Friendly staff, great selection of craft beers, and the best onion rings I’ve had in a long time. From burgers to soups salads to sandwiches and everything else in between, every meal is like a special occasion. Outdoor dining too, family friendly atmosphere with kids menu, or if you want to head to the bar and watch golf that’s great too.
Unbelievably good hamburgers; $5.00 on Monday. Awesome skinny fries; cooked perfectly, I must say. All of us had a burger of one type or another. Every belly was pleased and full. Great service, also. We will be back…. and soon.
