Good family restaurant

Good family restaurant. Every time my family comes up for snowmobiling and skiing we always stop here. Good home-cooked meals. Generous proportions. Good soups. Good breakfasts as well. Wait staff is always pleasant.

Poor quality food with minimal menu selections. Was here for breakfast and was thoroughly disappointed. Service was just as poor.

Simple Menu, Generous portions, Attentive waitstaff--all makes for a fine time at the Breakwater Restaurant in Ironwood, MI. Breakfast is cooked to order, lunch and dinner offerings also good. Come in when visiting Ironwood--the staff is always glad to see folks!

The service is always very friendly here, but the food is just average. Lots of fried options. Better for breakfast than for lunch or supper.

We were served a great breakfast here. It looks and feels like a diner from the 50's Friendly people and good food. We had bacon and eggs with toast. All items were done right. Coffee was good. The place was clean. We noticed mostly locals while we were there. That is always a good sign.

I go to Breakwater after all the heavy lifting and such when I'm done at the local laundromat. Waitstaff always friendly, and coffee is hot. The Eggs Benedict will come with your eggs poached to your preference. American fries are great--bite-sized chunks of roasted redskin potatoes, yummy! Salads also good, as are the variety of other meals on the menu.... More

This is an excellent family full menu restaurant. There's something here for each one of our 'picky' family appetites.

I ordered the turkey and dressing. The turkey was not fresh, tasted like leftovers. Dressing was over seasoned with sage and salt and was gummy in texture. All together a very poor meal. I cannot recommend anyone eat here.
