A large party of us came there for a retirement luncheon. The dining set-up and service was excellent. We were amazed at quickly our orders were taken and the food arrived. Our water glasses were always kept full. I had their Burrito Grande (with the chipotle chicken) and it was huge. The portions of guacamole, pico de gallo, and sour... More

I love this place in the summer. Eating outside in our beautiful downtown near the river is the best and the food is good too!

If you are looking for a place to eat in downtown Battle Creek, look no further! The menu is very extensive. We were only going to have an evening "snack" and ended up eating a large meal. Food was very good, deserts were FANTASTIC! A view of the Christmas lights were an added benefit. A great way to end a... More

We stopped in for drinks at the bar, while getting our evening planned. The staff was friendly and efficient, however they need an office or something. One server moved from the small bar as she was counting out her money for the day. The tables in the bar area were also taken up with staff counting tips and settling their... More

We visited on a Sunday after church and the seating was immediate. The Buffet was excellent, there was a large selection of prepared dishes. There was also a Chef who made excellent Omelets that were cooks just right. There was also a good variety of deserts and fruit. We attend at least every 6 weeks, because there is so much... More

Let me start off by clarifying my title. The food is not bad...it is not the best, though, either. Their prices thing they are. Their portions are not very great either. The atmosphere is cool, and if you can sit near the giant fireplace, it is a good spot. I have eaten there a few times, and have never walked... More

Cooked to order, the ground beef burger is delicious. I can't believe I ate the whole thing -- it was a full 8 ounces.

It's SUPER QUAINT and CHARMING inside. Be sure to look around. We had to walk thru most of place to get to... More
