Excellent Food at a Reasonable Price

Excellent food in an eclectic setting. Although Gaylord has an Alpine theme, this restaurant offers American and Greek cuisines. Although the building is dated, the food is excellent and reasonably priced.

I have never written a negative review, but I can't find much to be positive about here, other than our very pleasant and apologetic waitress. My chicken salad was passable, but small and not worth the price. My husband's open-faced sandwich was scanty on ingredients. There were not many customers, but our order took more than 20 minutes to arrive.... More

We were the the only group/table in the restaurant. Service was pleasant. The flaming cheese was highlight of evening, beer warm, cocktails strong, entrees were average. I ordered the medallions of beef, potatoes tasted of box origin, the beef was tender, more reminiscent of a pot roast with the mushroom Demi dominated the flavor. My wife had walleye that was...

We went here with another couple and it was the worst meal my husband ever had. He ordered the "hand battered" Alaskan cod and when it came it looked like 2 little fish sticks. He complained to the waitress and when the manager came by, she just said "That's the way we do it" and was rather nasty. My meal... More

I had the reuben sandwich and my wife had a breakfast platter, both were very good and very reasonably priced. I would eat her again.

My wife and I always stop here when making our many drives to Marquette. Gaylord is about the half way mark, and Sugar Bowl has been feeding us for years now. They offer a great corned beef hash and eggs for breakfast. For dinner we always have a nice, quiet dinner in the main dining room. The meals are meticulously... More

I'm from out of town and I'm staying Gaylord for business. I came in expecting a great dinning experience based on the reviews on here. Whoever that was not the case. My waitress sounded either drunk or high. The prices were threw the roof. For the cost of my meal I thought that it was going to come a free... More
