The Sugar Bowl offers visitors to Gaylord a warm atmosphere, prompt service, and good food served in ample portions. Some of the dishes are based on Greek recipes modified for American taste. This is the ideal family restaurant. After considering newer and noisier options in Gaylord we opted for this longtime favorite of locals and were glad we did.

They have the best perches , not battered and fried, but sautéed in butter. As good as in France. Our waitress Jaime was very attentive and competent. Nice ambiance too.

When I am headed through Gaylord I like to stop at the Sugar Bowl. The restaurant is celebrating 95 years in business which is in this instance a testament to it's strengths. Very good food served by excellent staff. The draft beer selection could be a little more extensive. They should add a craft beer or two though they have... More

This was recommended by our hotel. Visiting town for the night so decided to give it a try. Upon sitting down we noticed that our glasses were very dirty with a hazy film up and down the entire glass. Looked at other table unoccupied and noticed all the glasses looked that way. When the waitress came to full our glasses... More

My husband and I were driving through Gaylord on our way home from a trip to the UP. We saw a billboard advertising the Sugar Bowl and decided to give it a try. The service was fast and friendly. My husband ordered a gyro, which he enjoyed. I ordered a knockwurst on a homemade pumpernickel roll. The roll was so... More

I have been to Gaylord several times (golfing previously) and thought this was a bowling alley. How deceiving. Based on the wallpaper and sconces, I felt more like the decor was more akin to something you'd find on an old fashioned paddle boat Vs Alpine. The fish I had, and sandwich the wife had were good. Not great but not... More

Be sure you are sat at the dining part of the restaurant, portions are larger and there are more options than in the lunch area. We tried the veal and the 10oz top sirloin, everything was just perfect. I like my steak a little bit burnt on the outside and a little pink inside, I asked for this and they... More

We stay at Gaylord, every year for our vacation. We make it a point to stop at the Sugar Bowl of Gaylord , at least once. One of our favorite meals. There are two separate dining rooms. One side for families, and one that is fancy and more formal. We always love it with their luscious salad bar! We can't... More

We ended up eating here several times during our visit to Gaylord. We thought the food was very good and plentiful, I might add. The wait staff was very friendly and pleasant.
