Great Ribs and Delicious Hamburger

We went to this fine restaurant and had ribs and a burger. Pros: The ribs were great. Fell off the bone, just like you'd expect from an experienced chef or cook. The burger was also cooked as well and the pretzel bun was wonderful. Cons: Both the ribs and burger were cooked a bit more than we... read more

We spend about 6 weeks each year at a cottage just outside of Charlevoix and the Villager Pub is our go to place to eat. The burgers and fries are great and the daily specials are a true bargain. The service is fast and friendly. We have eaten at virtually every other restaurants in and near Charlevoix but we always... More

A cluby pub with very good food. Wish they offered whitefish & walleye broiled as well as deep fried...but this is basically a bar.

Great place to get fish dinners. Very busy in the summer but laid back with locals in the off season. Best whitefish around, fresh from John Cross Fisheries. The owners have been at it for years. If you aren't a cone sucker or fudgee . This is the place to go in Charlevoix

While I wasn't overwhelmed here, I really did enjoy my gyro sandwich which was the daily special and my husband loved his perch sandwich.

This is a 'local' spot and popular. Summertime it can be pretty crowded and a bit noisy. The decor is from the 1950's and fun to look at all the memorabilia. Menu has a large assortment of items to choose from. Their winter soups are delicious, especially when it's served in the bread bowls. Burgers are always juicy, french fries... More

My husband and I were visiting Castle Farms with our grandson and his honey. They are having their wedding there. Found this place when visiting bakery. We thought the burger was great. It was juicy and prepared just the way we wanted. The server was attentive. We will go back!

This seems to be a popular hang out. Lots of people enjoying the food and each other. We got the broasted chicken which came with coleslaw, roll, and fries. The chicken was juicy and seasoned well. Our server was not attentive or engaging. We were there in the later hours of service so I'll give her a break and say... More

Tried the Monday special - meatloaf with mashed potatoes and green beans: Meatloaf was sizably portioned: moist and good flavor, covered in brown gravy. Not as good as grandma's, but enjoyable. Mashed potatoes were instant. It's hard to mess that up. Covered in same brown gravy. Green beans were fresh and green. They were perfectly sautéed with almonds. Also good... More

We were here on a very busy summer day on the recommendation of local residents who assured us it was the best place in town. As it was so very busy, we were willing to take that into account. I ordered the special Whitefish sandwich and my husband ordered the burger, both with fries. I will say we received the... More
