4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2014 NEW

It had been years since my husband and I ate here and the current restaurant/atmosphere and menu bears little resemblance to the original place. It is a cute little rustic type place, the menu offered good choices of sandwiches and dinners, waitstaff was very friendly and efficient. They were offering a special "Octoberfest" menu with German themed dishes so we... More

Cobb salad. Best ever. I had it w blue cheese dressing. Husband had soup and reuben. All tastefully presented and tasty. We will be back. On Elm Street a few blocks east of the old hotel.

Small town home-made comfort food in every bite at this casual family restaurant. B,L&D are all good. Just a block east of the downtown Kalkaska traffic light on 131. Don't waste your time at McD's or the other chains. This is where you want to be. The parking lot is packed with locals and they certainly know where the food... More

We were headed to another restaurant and found out it was closed. Came back to town and checked out this location. We brought our one year old son, directed to seat ourselves and had a good look at the menu, so much to choose from. Hubby chose the Tennessee pulled pork and I got the Up North salad. Both were...

Small portions on main "dish" but huge amount on desert. Would recommend. Extremely nice staff. Food was well made and presentation was what you would expect from a country style cafe. It was actually busy with locals, so you know they know what they are doing. I almost wonder if they only had enough for 1dish and since my wife... More

Pretty good place. We have now eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner here and we have been satisfied each time. We will return again. Better than driving to Traverse City for a meal.

Pricy food, but best in the area. They have recently updated inside, now more contemporary. The menu has expanded and has a little of something for everyone.

We're stuck in the area due to rain (motorcycle trip). Hubs just wanted a pizza but I wanted real food. I had cheddar ale soup and 1/2 french dip and hubs had french dip fries and coleslaw. Everything was delicious. Will definitely be back hopefully not in the rain next time.
