Visit 1: Our first visit was phenomenal! We ordered a dinner special they had - 2 meals, an appetizer, soups and dessert for $23. It's a steal! The food was very good. The bread and soup were both fabulous! The steak was above average, especially in the price range. The mashed potatoes and gravy were wonderful too. Everything was homemade.... More

Visited 2014 08 21 We found this place through an advert in our motel flyer. It was close and and easy to get to so we gave it a try. We went there for supper. We had the buffet. Plenty of food and a good variety. Ribs, chicken, fish, hamburg, beef, potatoes, soups, salads. We got there a little later... More

I ate dinner here and breakfast the next morning. The dinner buffet was okay. They had chicken, beef and ribs to choose from. The salad bar was great also. The breakfast bar is even better. But this time I ordered a vegetable/ cheese skillet with meat and eggs added. I could only eat half since the portions are so huge.... More

Old Hamlin was recommended as a good breakfast place by one of the local shopkeepers. We were happy that they served breakfast all day, as it was towards lunchtime when we arrived. I had an omelet and my husband had the corned beef hash and eggs. The American fries were great; just like Mom used to make. The toast slices... More

We got there later than we normally do around 7:30. The buffet had the look of being unattended to. The ribs which were tasty as alway's were a bit dried out & you had to pick between the bones. The chicken was great but again the pickings were sparse. The salad bar was cool, cant explain the negativity of other... More

Great location in the center of town. The buffet we ordered for dinner was only OK but filled us up. Perhaps if you order from the menu the food will be better. The whole meal with a beer was only sixteen bucks so can't complain too much. Several young couples with kids present. A buck off buffet for 55 and... More

The Old Hamlin is one of the restaurants my husband and I always choose to eat at whenever we are in Ludington. We have never been disappointed, whether eating from the buffet or ordering a meal off the extensive menu they offer. We stopped in for lunch this trip and they offered a buffet so when our server (Amanda, she... More

We come to Ludington every August and always come to Old Hamlin Inn at least once per trip. I really like to order breakfast here. The homemade bread is wonderful toast. There is always a buffet there in the summertime that is really good. We end up eating too much so just order from the menu. The service has been... More

The food was not as fresh as I would have expected for as early as we arrived. The rest rooms are poorly located too close to diners. Breakfast bar was small, but held the usual foods and fruits.

We had a nice breakfast at the Old Hamlin Restaurant. It was crowded but the wait was short before we were seated. The service was quick and our waitress was very friendly and efficient. The restaurant is family owned and it is obvious the owners care about their customers. The food was typical but good. I will definitely go back!
