Great view of the waterfront. Cool interior. This is ore of a college type of place, but its well worth the effort. Great Pizza! Definite stop while in Houghton.

Everything at the Ambo is great. Pizza. Sandwiches. Pasta. Beer. Decor. There is no place like it. Be sure to give yourself some time to check out the ceiling murals.

We had dinner here and each of us designed our own pizza! They were all excellent! The place is a nice casual place with a wide drink selection and a large menu. I had heard the pizza was the best in MIchigan and now I believe it. The service was also very good.

We tried this place after reviewing restaurants in Houghton, MI. We found the reviews to be accurate. The food was awesome and the place has a nice atmosphere. We had a sausage & pepperoni pizza that was delicious. They also serve specialty pizza's and sandwiches. The prices are family friendly. This restaurant gets busy in the evening hours, but the...

I stopped in for dinner one night after a late meeting. The pizza was pretty darn good...and they are not run of the mill pizzas either. You can get some pretty cool different kinds of pizzas too. The pesto pizza was a good choice!

Pizza was good, but not worth the drive we made. Salsa was good but different. Daughter loved her roast beef sandwich and other daughter said she wished she had gotten that instead of the pizza... Waitress was not very smart. Six of us, but she would only give us 5 menus even though we asked for another one. I explained... More

Great bar food and fishbowl drinks. Highly recommended the tostada pizza. Also the keewanaw brewing company is right down the street and the beer tastes that fresh from the tap. After a long hike there isn't much better than that.

We live in Arizona, but go up to the UP almost every summer. I start drooling for The Ambassador's Traditional Sub Sandwich about 3 months before we head up. (I've been tryingto figure out a way to have one shipped to me in AZ). We usually end up eating there about 3 times during our week stay. I get the... More

Their tostada pizza is the best. Sometimes it's best to get there early to get a table in the back away from the bar.

The Ambassador is always busy - because they have consistently great food and great service - you can't beat the atmosphere. It's where all the local's go!
