Decent food, nothing special. Staff isn't overly friendly, but they do their job. Lotsa options to choose from!

When you wait 45 minutes for your breakfast and then it's brought to you cold something is wrong. Did we send it back? No, we had a 3 hour ride home and a cold breakfast was better than no breakfast. Doesn't make us want to come to this area again. There's a McDonalds across the street, if I wanted that... More

Our first clue should have been the rude and nasty older woman who took us to our table. If she were to smile, her face would crack. Menus and water were brought promptly, but that's where the "promptly" ended. Our order was simple: nachos, nacho grande, and and overstuffed potato. We waited for 50 minutes for our food, while we... More

We come to Mio a lot. This place was one were we eat a couple times per week, ( well that was used to). The service was fair but the food for value is not very good anymore. The lady that sat us was rude and long on attitude. Not sure we will come as often as we used to😩

We ate one lunch and two breakfasts at this restaurant. We were with other adult family members for all meals, and all of us were satisfied with our food including my brother-in-law, who is professional chef. Service seemed a tad slow, but we were on vacation, so that wasn't a problem. Dishes tried and enjoyed were omelets, pancakes, french toast,... More

Experimenting with a different route home on the busy Memorial Day weekend, we chose a route through Mio and decided to have breakfast. The first place that caught our eyes was the AuSable River Restaurant, because cabin-ish knotty pine buildings always have great breakfasts, right? Well, not completely! My boyfriend and one son got the Big Country breakfast and ate... More

I go to the Ausable River Restaurant on average about once per week, usually for breakfast or lunch. They have great service, and their breakfast skillet specials are tasty, generous, and fun. I think the weekend breakfast buffet is the best in town.

We enjoyed a weekday breakfast here today. The waitress was very nice. We ordered off the menu and the food was good. For some reason, the pancake syrup seemed specially good. The coffee was very good too!
