A great "non-chain" restaurant

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... read more

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.

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

If you are looking for a bar with good beer, this is your place. If you are looking for a good dinner, keep driving. My pork was terrible. As I was thinking that I must have hit the place on an off night, the woman at the table next to us sent her food back less than a minute after... More

We had a party of six friends so this was a good choice to please everyone. If we had 1/2 stars I would probably rate it is 3 1/2. Better than average but not exceptional. Staff is friendly and service is good they deserve 4 stars. Comfortable atmosphere and BBQ menu selections better than other options.

The food here is AWESOME. Very delicious. But we had terrible service when we went there- they forgot two of our party's order, gave me a "mixed drink" that was just straight whiskey, and were very slow with taking orders and bringing out drinks and food. I do plan on going back there again sometime. Maybe on a slower night... More

The food and beverage selection is great. Despite usually being very busy when we are there the service is attentive. I love the atmosphere.

Was disappointed ordered the wild turkey sandwich the waiter came back and told us they forgot to smoke the turkey today. Had a barbecue brisket sandwich instead. If you like barbecue u will like it. However the corn bread they bring to the table is awesome.

Again, this is a little drive unless you happen to live in the down but a drive in MI is always pleasant! This is a medium size "family" restaurant but with an extensive menu, GREAT BBQ and a small, but quality wine list that is affordable. They do take reservations and if you're not there early for dinner, you may... More
