What a great restaurant for families! The menu offers a wide selection for all 3 meals of the day. The omelets are the best in town. The Greek lemon rice soup is the best I've ever had. No one leaves hungry!

Ate breakfast here recently, I will admit I liked my meal more then my wife did, she felt everything was rather greasy. Neat little place in Gaylord that was recommended to us by a friend. Friendly atmosphere, very nice employees and pretty good home cooked food. I would give it another try when back in town.

I had heard about the Sugar Bowl from friends; how they had gone there for years so we gave it a try. The pictures on the walls in the hallway are great, but the restaurant itself is truly dated with dark walls and poor lighting. We ordered drinks to start, mine was a Chambord Sour which the bartender didn't know... More

My wife and I both had the whitefish.....her's broiled, and mine sauteed. Both were excellent as were the sides. The salad bar was very good, too. Good service and pleasant waitress...a very pleasant dining experience

best salad bar north of Clare, also, order the lamb shank (it's not on the menu) you can thank me later. This is by far the best place to eat after a round of golf in Gaylord.

I recently took my family to the Sugar Bowl for a nice dining experience. I have been dropping in to this restaurant when in town for the past 30 years for breakfast or supper. The menu has a good variety of choices for all tastes. The food has always been good and the service often is excellent. Prices are average... More

We had a group of about 50 people, the restaurant easily served all of us, the waitress we had was fantastic-friendly and served everyone very nicely. I have never been to this restaurant, but when I go north again-I will make sure I stop here again. I had the whitefish, (this is what they do very well)--it was very good... More

Giving it one star is generous.....This is the worst food I have had in a long time. I got their "signature" dish and was awful. I took one bite and couldnt finish. The fish was plain, tasted almost freezer burnt and for MI whitefish I would expect better. My husband's and childrens meals werent much better...slop, burnt and dry. If... More
