Best Sunday Homestyle Turkey Dinners ever!

Wonderful family stop, with large portions. Try their Sunday Turkey Dinner, with all the usual accompaniments.

Our server was sweet but lunch was horrible. The grilled chicken sandwich was watery, chicken rubbery. Pasty was average. We thought the bakery would save the lunch but the pastry in the pies was like cardboard. I think the hit of this place must be breakfast.

Came in about 10 am for breakfast, 1 other table was finishing up. My husband I both ordered the exact same thing, 1 egg and toast. His came out 10 minutes before mine. I had to chase the waitress down for coffee refill. NEVER AGAIN, AVOID THIS PLACE!

My wife and I were searching the peninsula for a good pasty, essential to experience in the U.P. We stopped by in desperation of finding a non-shrink wrapped variety, and hit the jackpot--fresh-made Pasties! Very good, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Try the fresh baked goods--I personally recommend the raspberry turnovers and chocolate chip cookies--huge and cheap! The... More

I think this is the only place in town open for breakfast. The food is good but not great. The service is efficient but not terribly friendly.

Service with a snarl ... Though I have no doubt that the only waitress for the whole place works hard, sadly she lets you know it. My sausages were merely ok and priced the same as most other places. Though I didn't try any, they also had a lot of freshly baked goods that looked good.
