Great Brunch!

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

Can be noisy depending upon when you come. Extensive menu with large portions .... House wine was fine and relatively cheap $5 glass give or take. Attire... More

They have a large menu and everything from steak to fish and vegetarian items. The wait staff seem to enjoy working there and make your dining experience fun. I have never been disappointed in anything I have ordered there. The food is fresh, hot and large portions.

Food was very good, as was service. Staff was a tad slow to refill banquet table items, but did when asked. Nice room for our group. Good meal for price.

Arrived approximately 11:30 for lunch, seated fairly quickly AFTER the wait person understood we were not with the 6 ahead of us. Food was adequate (I got the ruben), I like my food to arrive hot, my food arrived warm. Refills just didn't happen, and I had to prompt the wait person for a refill on my friends coffee. I... More
