We went here for dinner with our 4 children, My husband ordered pulled pork. It cam and was almost burnt, super dry and was like pulled jerky. All our meals were kinda dry, the resuarant has no atmosphere, and it is totally overpriced.

Horrible since the new owners took over! Don't put a sign out that says new management when it is new ownership. No liquor and a horrible selection on the menu. Whitefish is boiled, not broiled, and presented on iron skillet. Chicken kids meals over cooked, and BBQ sandwiches are served on stale buns...could've eaten better at McDonalds! Won't be back...

We stopped here for supper while on a road trip down Michigan's sunrise coast. We enjoyed draft beers, fried pickles, and split a chili crunch burger (1/2 pounder!) that included a side of yummy onion rings. We were each served 1/2 the burger and a LARGE 1/2 order of onion rings on separate plates-the kitchen divided the order there. So... More

It was time for a 2nd chance given the "under new management" and it was well worth it. The menu has been updated and trimmed down with a much better wine selection than previous. My husband and I were hoping for perch but it wasn't on the menu so we selected the broiled whitefish along with the crab bisque. The... More

Ate here twice on a recent golf trip. The place just reopened. The staff went out of their way to take care of us. Food was good. Probably the best option in Oscoda when visiting.

I'll forgive a lot since it's under new management but the servers seemed to have no clue about the menu or how to serve the food. We were told about our saganaki appetizer "we've never done this before" and it showed both in the presentation and the preparation/taste. My husband asked questions regarding menu items which were met with a... More

New management, still horrible. This was not my first time here but it's my last. It doesn't seem to make any difference about management, I've never had a good meal here. Service was terrible, the orders were wrong, food was bland, one salad was served with no dressing even though it was ordered and then it took 20 minutes to... More

My family loves this place. It is our #1 go to for meals while in Oscoda. Great alcoholic drinks and atmosphere indoors if there are games on. Usually eat outside at the tables by the river if it's nice out. Love the little walk to walk along the river and see a different area of Oscoda than we normally do.... More

My family and I recently ate breakfast off the buffet, I was talking to the young girl and her step mom about the food, the mother was very knowledgeable... But after she had went back into the kitchen an older woman who was also our waitress was speaking down to the young girl. I swear she almost shed a tear!... More

Tomato soup was great. Beer selection good with 14 on tap choices. Patio is next to the river and a great place to end up at after canoeing. service was amazing, Dana was very attentive. Not much more you could ask for.
