I was confronted by my last review about this place and decided to give it one more shot. Again the profanity flows more in that place than the water in the Great Lakes. I will not be back a third time.

The service was OK, the food was OK, but the decor had a little to be desired. I guess for what its worth, its not bad. Give it a shot for something new.

food was good. Service was a little slow, but expected in this laid back town. We stopped for a time out to watch MSU football game. Very clean

If you are visiting the Mighty Mack you need to make a stop at the Keyhole. This is the place where locals and tourists can come together and totally enjoy themselves. I ordered the Perch sandwhich and my wife had the Ruben. Add a cup of Ruben soup to mine and you had a great lunch with a local flavor... More

I ate here several times during my stay and was never disappointed. The hotel owner recommended it...The atmosphere is definitely bar-with-food rather than restaurant-with-booze, and that was just fine with me on this trip. Feels like a locals' place but I really don't know if it has any more claim to that than any other spot. I was here for... More

A typical bar setting but with a great fish sandwich or burger to partake in and fun people will surround you.

Stopped in recently on a Saturday for dinner. A short wait for a table. Quick drink order taken by the waiter and then our food order. I had the wet burrito and a cup of beef barley soup. Soup excellent and homemade. Burrito was very tasty and very LARGE! I decided to try something else besides my usual perch order.... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by several people. The atmosphere was casual, and our waitress was fantastic! We had perch sandwiches with homemade onion rings. They were delicious! They weren't that busy, so we had fun with some of the other customers and staff. It was really a great experience. We would certainly eat there again.

Key hole bar has a sign hanging above it that says bar so you may not see it. Look for the big bar sign on a plague shaped like a keyhole. OR look for the line up of people outside. Sign in and you will not reqrat the wait. Our wait was shorter than expected. Four of us all had... More
