We stopped in for lunch and ordered a Greek Feta pizza, which was very good. Others in our party ordered soft shell tacos - not so good, according to them. I think this would be a great place to simply order a good local micro brewed beer (KBC) and enjoy the amazing ambiance of the interior of this beautiful old... More

Great place to go for reasonably priced sandwiches or pizza. KBC beer (& others) available on tap. The woodwork & wall murals (painted in 1902) are absolutely amazing. Definitely a must see. The windows in the second room, overlook the lift bridge.

Locals recommended this downtown classic for its pizza, which was excellent, but plenty of other dishes were on offer as well. The atmosphere is better suited to an energetic night out with friends than to a quiet, intimate table for two; that stems partly from the clientele (lots of Tech students) and partly from the fact that it's in an...

The murals are interesting, but not enough to carry this place. There was no air conditioning, the service was dreadful and so was the food. Save your money. Go in, order a beverage, snap pics of the murals and leave.

My husband went to Michigan Tech and every time I'd visit we would stop in at Ambo. Great food, drinks, and atmosphere. Just visited for the first time in four years and devoured two large tostada pizzas! Tasted just like it did four years ago. Never disappointed.
