Great play list and yummy food

We stumbled on Buchanan during their summer festival. Nice small town. Locals recommended Wheatberry. Arrived late so some items were sold out but we thoroughly enjoyed the smoked ribs, chicken, shrimp, and pulled pork. Nice choice of Michigan beers and wines. We sat on the porch. Great play list.

I loved the atmosphere and the location. The BBQ is awesome and so is the cornbread. Full bar and great drink selections. Definitely a must visit.

Had early dinner while RV camping nearby. Great food. Pulled pork and beef, Really thick smoked pork chop. Smoked on premises and very tasty. Ate on patio, service was great and food arrived hot and promptly. No problem with sub of veg for potato. Quick seating, although early during 4th of July and motocross weekend. Easily recommend to others.

Food was ok. We were hungry so we needed to eat. We didn't walk out thinking "OH boy that was the greatest place!" Don't know that we would go back. But it was on a holiday weekend so that might have been the difference

Pleasantly surprised to find a restaurant serving good food and craft beers in this out of the way location. Barbecue was good, prices were reasonable, and we returned to try other menu items that were also delicious. Great service--not a think to complain about here!

We went here last night and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Pluses: - cocktails were strong and they served them in pint glasses #win - ribs were good...nice and smoky flavor; however some parts were slightly too salty - cornbread instead of bread= awesome - waiter was quick and attentive - menu was insanely large and had some solid vegetarian options;...

Specialize in barbeque food smoked outside in the rear of the restaurant. The ribs and chicken platter I got was average, nothing I would praise about. The ribs were not falling off the bone as I really like them to be. You really have to like that smoky flavor to enjoy Wheatberry's barbeque.

Wheatberry's has a unique atmosphere. You will fill comfortable here coming home from the beach, dining with kids, or on a special night out. The food comes in generous portions. The food tastes great! We have eaten here with our kids on numerous occasions and the staff has been so wonderful with the kids making us all feel so welcome.

We have been going here for years and lately it keeps getting worse. Very disappointing. Prices increases and portions decreased. What they show on the on-line menu does not match what they have when you get there. The meat was overcooked, the portions smaller and the drinks are very much smaller. After 3 bad experiences, we will never go back.... More
