Great Burgers!

Tried this place for the first time. Walked into a very open Restaurant/Bar facility that had a nautical theme. A lot of windows but unfortunately the view wasn't appealing. I ordered the Mushroom Swiss Burger and my husband ordered the Turkey Club. Large lunch portions! My burger was big and there... read more

This California gal forgot how everything is deep fried in the mid west. Ordered the sliders and they were over done and dry. In desperate need of a good sauce. Onion rings were tasty along with the bistro sauce, like a thousand island. They needed a bit more salt though. Homemade chips were delightful but also in need of salt.... More

This restaurant was my favorite place to eat in the Monroe, MI area. Last night, however, there was nothing about the dining experience that met previous expectations. Maybe they were having a very bad night, and I'll probably give them one more chance, but if that doesn't show significant improvement I won't be going back. There was 3 in our... More

We went for a birthday party. We all had dinner and drinks. The party started with about 7 people around 7:30pm. We ended up having about 15 ppl. The waitress had to be asked several times to refill drinks and for the bills, boxes, etc. It wasn't busy enough for her to be that slow. The food was good, I... More

HIA has a super Sunday Brunch that puts most buffet brunches to shame. It has a range of breakfast foods and excellent luncheon foods, including a prime rib. Highly recommend it.

All their food is great, but they have the best fish south of Detroit. All of their daily specials are outstanding. You won't be disappointed. Lots of dining space, great bartenders, live music, cool nautical theme that includes the back of a wood boat! Service has always been very good. They served a party of 20 with ease and totally...

This place was recommended to us by a friend who knew we were in town for a few days. We were intimidated a little by the exterior and since we were there a little early, we noticed mostly elderly people entering the restaurant. However, trusting our friend, we stuck it out and were glad we did. We were seated by... More
