Outstanding restaurant

I am from Manistique but I am in the Navy so I don't get back there that much but when I do this is one place that my family and I make sure we go. They have outstanding sandwiches and bakery goods. The soups are great as well. If you are passing through Manistique Michigan then you should make... read more

Cute little deli right on the river! Excellent homemade soup & sandwiches! Many yummie sounding sandwich choices. Very friendly ladies at the counter. Finally found a perfect fast food alternative for sojourns across the U.P.

What a fun spot set amidst a great antique store and art shop from local artists. The restaurant is set on the waterfront and the food is yummy and fresh. You order food at counter and it is brought to you.

We often make the trip from the bridge to Gladstone and always try to time a lunch at the Upper Crust. I could not think of a better name for this eatery. The food is fresh and very innovative while also just plain good. Meals are a combination of simple and elegant with great flavors. A nice clean and airy... More

I travel in the UP often and this is one of the best sandwich shops hands down. It's an adorable restaurant with views of the Manistique River. The food is fresh. The service is great.

I have been on many occasion to The Upper Crust and it never disappoints. The sandwiches are delicious, with fresh bread and many many different options. The soups are delicious, the staff and owners are friendly and attentive. The view is great by the harbor, if you are around it is worth your time and taste buds.

This was a nice lunch stop as we passed through Manistique. The menu offers many different sandwiches, several salads, 2 soup options, and a few desserts. I had a very nice Greek salad - loved the addition of pickled beets! Others in our group had very generous sandwichs on fresh bread/toast. You order and pay for food at the counter... More

Thank you for your comments regarding your past experience for you - I am very sorry that the service may have been slow for you during your visit. We recently had two of our main staff become injured (back/neck issues), so we have been scrambling to fill in the gaps while they have been recovering. During a busy day at... More

Just love this place! Great sandwiches, wonderful soups, friendly staff, fabulous view! There is also a great local art gallery right next door. It is a little off the beaten path - look for the signs on the south side of US 2 just west of downtown Manistique.

Great food, best homemade sandwiches I've had and the view of the Manistique lighthouse and port are so nice to look at. Diverse menu with super friendly service!
