This is a fun restaurant to visit. The hunting decor is very interesting. The service was great and the excellent food was prepared to our request. We will return again when we travel through this area of Michigan.

This place has been open a long time but still looks good. The beer is excellent, we had 2 different kinds. Our food was good and service was excellent.

The food is outstanding and the wine and beer that is made there is super. I thought this place was closed due to the one in Auburn Hills closing years ago. They need to let people know they are still there. In the last couple years our group went elsewhere because we thought they we closed. Go, it is worth... More

Stopped here on the way north because we had been here last year, and we knew that it had a parking lot with enough room to handle our truck and travel trailer (when you are traveling in this fashion, parking is your first consideration). We enjoyed it last year, and this visit was also quite satisfactory. Since we were on... More

My husband and I first dined here in July of 2014. We both enjoyed our steaks immensely. The service was great and we felt right at home. In August of 2014 we took our daughter and her fiance back for another meal. We all ordered something different, steak, ribs, chicken and fish. All 4 of our meals were great and... More

So sad to remember dining here years ago with just my hubby having great beer and probably the best steak I had ever had. Why are you still open all these years later is nothing but a waste of tourist time and money because I'm sure locals know better. Even my kids know better...horrible service, terrible food, and beyond ridiculous... More

Big Buck used to be a good place to go and grab a meal. We were there on August 21, 2014 for lunch and the Chicken Tortilla soup had to be sent back because it was luke warm. The Beer Cheese Soup, which is the house speciality, had something that seemed to be dried milk in the bottom of the... More

We loved (past tense) Big Buck Brewery in the past and always stop in. It's like walking in Cabela's it's beautiful. Sat at the bar for a beer and reviewed the menu (pricey). While waiting for our second beer and to order food we had a lot of time on our hands. Someone's child was in the restaurant (an employee's)... More

Great microbrewery with about a dozen local brews. Beers and service were great, food not so much. Appears the place is on a downward slide.

Been to this place in the past , was suprised by how slow it took for drinks. Beer was good tasting. Food took long time ,also considering their was not many people there. I agree with others, food is a little over priced but can overlook, with good food and beverage service. Place for kids outside to keep them busy... More
