Good food. Great service

Our party of 10 split between 2 tables. Our server was fast. Not so much on the other table. Our food was hot and tasty. The kids all found something they liked.

One would not drive far to get to this place, but the service is OK, the food is good, if not great, the prices are reasonable and the ambiance is non-existent.

I have to say that was the worst service I have ever seen. The food was good but that's if you feel like waiting around for 2 hours and be served by a rude waitress. The girl took about half hour just to acknowledge us at our table. Didn't apologize. As I was sitting there for another hour for my... More

If you travel to the UP, you must have a pastie! If you travel to the middle UP, you must try this place. Pasties are excellent, great beer on draft. The vegetable beef soup needed some help though!

Wife and I stopped there for dinner on our way through the UP. I had the smoked chicken, wife had the BLT - both entrees were VERY good. Service was good, prices are pretty reasonable. Would recommend.

We ended our stay in Newberry with a big group dinner here. They were able to quickly and easily seat our eleven people. Lots of menu items were ordered and I think people were happy with what they got. Not the fanciest of fare, but good and came fairly quickly. Nice little gift shop attached with some good deals.
