Like the fact, the scene was peopled by engaging students, travelers and town folk -- all very friendly. And the food was solid, tasty and big.

Picked this place for lunch based on tripadvisor reviews. Ordered a 'Black and Bleu' burger and a soft drink. Got a burger. Not so much as pickle or a chip with it. I might have added on had I been advised that nothing came with the burger. Seemed pricey for such a miserly meal. Service was perfunctory. Burger was thoroughly... More

I called this afternoon to inquire about booking a group of 48 people for dinner in October. The woman that answered the phone was extremely rude, almost like "What do you want?" When I asked to speak to a manager, she said I would have to call back after 8:00P. I asked what days I could speak to a manager... More

The food was great, the river window view was stunning. the decor is very fun, it has a great bar decorated with book shelves and antiques. It is a craft brewery as well as restaurant, the beers were great!

My friend and I loved the experience of being inside this old library building which has been adapted to a lovely comfortable restaurant and brewing establishment. The food was terrific and nutritiously prepared. The service was friendly and helpful.

This was my first visit although both of my children and my husband have eaten here. In all fairness, it was VERY busy as the students were returning to the campus of Michigan Tech. We knew there would be a wait to be seated but were willing to wait so that I (and the guests we invited to join us)... More

My husband had raved about the place since I met him and we were finally able to go. The atmosphere is great. We had a flight of beer at the bar and then headed to a table for dinner. It was excellent. It was the best restaurant we visited in the Keweenaw Peninsula!

Had dinner here. Nice atmosphere. Great bar selection. Very busy so food took some time to be served. I had the porter soaked beef brisket and it was melt in your mouth tender and a large portion. My wife had the chicken marsala and it was excellent. We sat at the bar later for a nightcap and were joined by... More

Their rye brew is great. Full flavor, great! We only had drinks but this place is very nice inside. The bartender, Jill, was great. I asked for a coaster for home and they have none, but she did give me a sketch that she did free hand that she does sidewalk art from. Friendly atmosphere. In Houghton only for one... More
