The Woodfire turkey carver sandwich is a popular dish with turkey cooked in a choice of three flavors – Caribbean Jerk, Cajun and Herb & Garlic— and served with lettuce, tomato and a special mayo on sourdough bread. The peach cobbler and sweet potato cheesecake are the featured homemade desserts.

The two-story complex has split-room dining on the first floor, with a bar and dining area that seats a total of 106 individuals. The upstairs houses a full banquet hall with a seating capacity of 104 in banquet setting (using 8-foot rounds) and a stage for live music, a disc jockey or a wedding party. The 13-foot high ceiling and long windows make the perfect setting for a celebratory event. There are a variety of wedding packages to meet every bridal budget.

The Black-Eyed P touts one of the largest outdoor patios with al fresco dining in Michigan City. The unique space is available for private events and parties. The venue will be open for concerts and live entertainment as well.

Stony Gardens was founded in 2009 and began its endeavor while seeking the answer to the all too common dry turkey. Stony Gardens created an innovative hi-tech cooking process, which allows the turkeys to keep their flavor and natural juices, leaving only a moist turkey with delicious taste. The gourmet woodfire turkey is infused with three succulent flavors – Herb & Garlic, Cajun and Caribbean Jerk.
