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.

Some of our friends really like this restaurant but we were disappointed. The food was quite average and the service was erratic. The seats in the booths were rather lumpy and I had to trade places with my husband to be comfortable. We both ordered some of their German food and I honestly think it was some of the worst... More

We wanted to try a local restaurant after a day of golfing. This was not what we bargained for. Extremely overpriced and unsatisfactory meal for two. I had the whitefish and he had the walleye (both with the salad bar). There was nothing good about the meal.

We ate in the dining room on a Monday night. The restaurant wasn't crowded at all but we had great service. Our entire party of five enjoyed their meals. We will be coming back. Great job! The menu had a great variety and the salad bar was wonderful!

Went to a weekday dinner at the Sugar Bowl. I was excited to finally try out one of Gaylord's original restaurants. My husband was excited to eat a gyro. It is one of the only restaurants that serve gyros in the area so it was the perfect choice. I ordered a shis ka bob. The service was speedy and friendly,... More

They seated me immediately. I told them I didn't have much time and I had a tasty breakfast in minutes. Good decor and atmosphere.

This wonderful old restaurant has an old world Alpine charm. Meal prices I saw on the menu ranged from $9 to $32. I had a very good Reuben for about $9. My wife had their baked ham special and our total bill including tip was about $25. Both our meals were very good. The waitress was friendly, funny, and attentive... More

We were traveling through Michigan and decided to stop at Sugar Bowl for lunch. The food was good, but the cherry pie was amazing! Not only was the filling outstanding, but the crust was over-the-top good! We would return here if ever in the area again, just to have another slice of that pie!

Great Breakfast menu. Ask to sit in Laurie's section if she is working. She is the epitome of servers. Very glib with her comments but she knows what she is doing. She likes people. Corn beef hash has a flavor different from most hashes served. Sourdough bread is the bomb. Very reasonably priced. Ambience is small town hotel with big... More
