We were driving home to the Lower Peninsula and stopped here. We were SO happy we did. the staff was wonderful and helpful, the food was DELICIOUS! The soup was some of the best I've ever had and the homemade crackers were a-m-a-z-i-n-g! Both my husband and I enjoyed our sandwiches and the atmosphere. If in town I'd definitely recommend... More

This is the best restaurant in Manistique- definitely #1. Today, I went for lunch with my husband and his mother. They try a new sandwich on Tuesdays (Try it Tuesday) and today's sandwich was spinach, artichoke, with melted mozzarella & provolone cheeses on the bread of your choice, toasted!!! My mother in law and I both had it- we both... More

The atmosphere here is bright, open, and comfortable, the food is always wonderful, and the staff goes out of their way to make your visit the best possible. You can always count of the upper crust for sandwiches, baked goods, and (when they open late) a wonderful dinner. You know its gonna be great when people rave about their grilled... More

Helps while away winter with Great Lake Michigan frozen over near adjacent harbor. More room, more kudos for great food (see previous review). I don' t eat outdoors at 10 F, but will when we thaw!

Popular business lunch, after- church, ladies who lunch, couple destination for me. Fabulous sandwiches, great salads, desserts from smile sugar cookies to tortes tempt me each time. I once found myself there three days in a row. Usually packed, but excellent service moves folks along without feeling rushed. Everyone from harbor workers to execs to post-yoga to dress-up femmes rb... More

Manistique was a stop on our Lake Michigan Circle Tour vacation - Day #7, to be exact. We arrived about lunch time. Our Internet research recommendations included “The Upper Crust” café and deli which is located on the water’s edge. Due to the in-coming fog, wind and decreasing temperature, we chose to eat inside instead of on the deck. Joan... More

My son and I found this gem upon the recommendation of the gal working at the winery at the marina. We were not disappointed! My son has already decided that we have to stop next time we are in the area because there are at least 6 other sandwiches on the menu that he wants to try! The patio area... More

1. Excellent food. 2. Superb prices. 3. The generosity to stay open a little past closing time so that me, the Missus, and our two teenagers could be pleasantly surprised by the yum factor. Many thanks from four new friends. For truly memorable food in Manistique--The Upper Crust is magnifique!
