Family meal

Good food. Good service. No long wait. Quiet enough to visit and talk. Called ahead to set up tables for a larger group.

I went with my daughter-in-law, and my four grandkids to Holland and South Haven. I wanted something that was different, so I found this restaurant on restaurants.com. Our waitress brought out coloring books, and picture books about trains for them to look at while waiting on the meal. As you go into restaurant they have an old electric train up... More

The food and service was very good, especially the homemade potato chips. One suggestion, use normal mashed potatoes for the open faced, hot turkey sandwich, not garlic mashed potatoes.

The waitress immediately made you feel welcome. She answered all our questions. Food came quickly and was hot and tasty. We ordered a variety of food and everyone was very satisfied.

We do not stop here nearly often enough. it is a good country restaurant with tasty foods and excellent desserts. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Within the past year or so, they now serve beer and wine. Excellent medium priced menu with many items to choose from. Something for the whole family.

We had a large party, somewhere around 20 on a Saturday evening. The place was PACKED. Our service was phenomenal! The food was good also. I had a grilled cashew chicken salad. My only complaint is the iceburg lettuce. The rest of my family had great food. Three kids loved it and so did my husband. Great value too!

In May, my daughter put an $800.00 deposit for a wedding reception to be held in September. We needed to change the wedding date to the next day and two days later she called to cancel. They refused to both refund her money or to let her apply the deposit to the rehearsal dinner since the amount of people for... More

Service is great and the food is top notch. I have tried several different dinners and have never been disappointed. The Lake Perch is, by far, my favorite. Very crunchy yet not overcooked.

Went for dinner tonight and the 3 of us had the t-bone special. The steaks were good. The salad was so-so, with some wilted lettuce. Dirty knife and glass. Waitress was ok, offering a dessert for the bad salad. We'll pass on returning and look for an alternative.

This is a neat place to go. Entering the buiding This is a neat place to go. Entering the building there is a model train that is overhead and a very open area that is very inviting.
