Great place for breakfast and meal specials

Stivers is a little like “Cheers”, most of the people who frequent it are regulars and everybody knows their names. Well known for their burgers, breakfast specials and meal specials, Stivers always seems to draw a decent crowd . Soups are good and the waitstaff are friendly. Go here when you... read more

We're going to be moving from this area of Michigan, so we are starting to zero in on dining at all the places about which we have previously said, "I'd like to try that place sometime." We have been driving by Stivers Restuarant for 20 years and never gone in. We've heard their drinks are really strong, but we opted... More

This place is exactly what you expect when you pull up. Nothing fancy but good food, good drinks and good service. For the money you can't beat it!

This is an old truck stop that's been there forever. We hadn't been years and it really hasn't changed - many "good ole boys" still hangout in the bar. Drinks were cheap and stiff. Only had a munchie - deep fried potato skins - really good and large serving. The east side is the restaurant side, bar on west. If... More

Wow did these reviews let me down. I was frightened the whole time I ate, of the people and the food. Maybe the people who gave this place good reviews have never been outside of Chelsea MI. But if you like fresh food relatively, or a clean restaurant, then keep on driving. Should have walked out but was desperate. Someone... More

Went here for Sunday mid afternoon and had seafood platter, it was $10.50. Menu says oysters but they substituted smelt. This is a truck stop restaurant, with no trucks. Nothing wrong with truck stops if the food is good. The chairs are ripped, salad bar was ok but nothing remotely special and restrooms are just plain scary. We probably should... More

This is definitely a local favorite. Everyone knew everyone. We stopped in on a whim for breakfast while travelling. Excellent service. Food was above average downhome cooking. I had country fried steak for the first time & it was very good. Right off I-94 convenient location.

We stopped at Stiver's on our way home from Chelsea. The food was hot & tasty. The salad bar is small but has a good selection & is fresh. I had the smelt dinner. It was very good. The restaurant is not fancy, just very casual dining. Good service & good food. We will stop & eat there again.

We had breakfast here two times about a week apart. We really enjoyed it. Prices were good and good portions served. Staff was very friendly.

Drinks good, food ok. If you are drinking, foul mouth servers in bar. You watch what you say because owners are very busy listening to what you say to others in bar and pick and choose who they like in there establishment. Then they wonder why there aren't any customers. L's are accepted , they think women bring in customers,.... More
