The best food around!!!

My husband and I love Tait's! We travel to Oscoda whenever we have extra time, and Tait's is one of the reasons we travel to Oscoda. Bill Tait, the owner, is always visible and chatting with his diners, the food is exceptional! Can't get any better!

What a wonderful place! Loved the atmosphere and the food was fantastic! Our waitress was extremely friendly and attentive and the owner came around throughout our whole meal to make sure everything was good. A+++

The food, the ambiance, and service is really first class. The menu is a pleasure and so diverse. Killer baby back ribs are outstanding, succulent and meaty. We can't wait to get into town to have a unique dining experience at Tait's. We recommend Tait's to be your first dining experience in Oscoda.

Dinner was delicious. I had baby back ribs that were delicious and fell off the bone. Served with a great salad and fresh vegetables. House made dressings very tasty and they have a great wine section.

Tait's is a lovely little gem tucked neatly in the heart of downtown Oscoda. We stopped in for dinner during the week were immediately greeted and made our way to the bar. I peeked into the dining room, it was quaint, dimly lit, with a few private tables tucked away in the corner. We sat up to the bar (8... More

Ate here last year at this time and had good food and good service. Not so this year. The filet mignon was dry and over-cooked, service was very slow (and we were the only customers in the dining room). Our $74 meal (for two) was way over priced for the food that was served. Last time we eat here!!

The setting was warm and cozy with a corner fireplace or choice of a semi private walled booth. The menu items were varied and soups of the day interesting. I had the Lumberjack sandwich. It was huge and tasty with hot fresh fries and a crunchy pickle spear. Good stuff!

We were recently in Oscoda for a weekend get away and tait's bill off are restaurant was recommended to us for dinner. We sat in the lounge area instead of the main dining room because it was more private and had a little more atmosphere. The restaurant itself wasn't anything special. Could use some updating. The service was good and... More

This is my favorite restaurant in this area. The food is fresh and very nicely prepared. Dinners are served with an amazing soup called Millenium, a salad with very green lettuce (no iceberg) and a basket of warm bread with honey butter. The panfried whitefish was excellent, a huge portion. The perch was perfectly flash fried. The London broil was... More

The food was just ok. I had pan fried walleye and my wife had the Delmonico steak . Walleye came with tartar sauce probably from a bottle. Steak was cooked right but just ok. We both had crab soup which was watery. It was our anniversary so they gave us a dessert with sparkling fireworks which was nice. The dessert... More
