In all honesty, we were not that impressed. Granted, they were hiring and needed help but there were only 5 other tables there. I won't comment too much on the service. I can say they were very nice. The place had potential but the service and food was not that good. After asking for chips and salsa twice, we finally... More

They had added "Steak House" to their sign. But it is really a burger bar. The food and beer selection was what I would expect. The burger was good, but the waitress had trouble remembering who got what, and special requests. Kind of noisy and they were not busy. A good choice if you are in the area and looking... More

Slow slow slow get the picture. It took over an hour to get food and the burger was burnt. I mean black burnt. Horrible service when we told the waitress she seemed disinterested. Do not waste you're money here.

The slowest service ever and cold artichoke dip I wasn't expecting. Otherwise this wasn't too bad. The gal that waited on my friends and I was more interested in hitting on a guy at the bar.

Staff was friendly and attentive. I'm assuming it was the owner walking around, striking up conversation with almost every table. He even gave my son a stuffed animal. We went during the spring and they were serving morel mushrooms... very exciting since we couldn't find any ourselves. The prices were a little high, but overall it was a good experience.

We passed Gaylord on our way to Mackinac Island and decided to have lunch at Stampede Saloon. (This is our first time to be at Gaylord). My husband and I had cheese burgers and peach iced tea for our drinks. The burgers are ok but we were shocked to see that our iced tea are $3.50 a glass with no... More

I'm not sure why the bad reviews because we have always enjoyed the staff and food. If you get the chance to stop, I recommend the black and blue burger. They serve over a 100 martinis, great craft beer selection and big screen tv.

My hubby and I stopped here to warm up while out on the snowmobile trails. The bartender was very friendly and attentive, the soup was amazing, and the drinks were made just right at a good price. I want to add that I loved the elegantly decorated saloon style womens restroom with a chandelier. Very pretty.

Absolutely the worst experience ever!!!! Instead of marketing themselves as a "family-orientated" bar...they are rather a self-important owner playground. The food was 1 hour 10 getting to the table while the owner(Dakota or Durinda) danced very provocatively with her bouncer boyfriend(who also calls himself the owner) while customers wait for service. Food was cold and small portions for the price.... More
