The food is reasonably priced and delicious. Great selection of beers, made on site. They have TV screens close by many of the tables, for sporting events.

Beautiful atmosphere, food is average, but it's a little bit pricey. If you like beer, you will enjoy the fact it's also a brewery. They always seem to have a few cars in the parking lot so you know that people are returning....

We ate here after a fun day out on the trails. Started with a 4 oz sample of their sweet variety of Hard Cider. It was fantastic! It was sweet with a hint of cinnamon. Felt like I was biting into an apple. I should have gotten more than a sample!! Next we tried the bread and salad. Two thumbs... More

Stopped in yesterday with the family and LOVED everything about this place! Seddrick recommended the Shaved Prime Sandwich to my husband, who now agrees this is the best sandwich ever and I had the Georgia Rueben. The blue cheese coleslaw is amazing. Oh, you must start with the Mussels in a mustard beer sauce! We will definitely be back!

Stopped here for New Year's Eve dinner although service was bet good the food was not anywhere near what you would expect for the prices. The ribeye steak was very thin, the mashed potatoes were cold and the broccoli was cool and watery. The Prime Rib was good and flavorful. The Scottish eggs were flavorful. The food was very disappointing... More

I think they did some great things when they first opened a long time ago, but it's gone downhill from there. The food is only average and service is often worse. The beer isn't anything that would bring me in for the mediocre food and service.

Service was great, prices were decent, and there weren't a lot of people so it was nice and quiet and almost romantical for my husband and me.

Gave the Big Buck a second try. Beer was just as good as the last, even tried the ciders. (Wishing they bottled the ciders or offered them to go) Liked the pear cider but as the bartender recommended the spiced cider was the best of the three. Last time we waited an hour for food in a nearly empty place... More

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.
