Good family restaurant.

Not fancy--just everything you would expect from a family restaurant. The Friday all-you-can-eat cod is a good deal an I would highly recommend it.

Perfect Sunday night supper place! The fried chicken & mashed potatoes were perfect. Service was very attentive and very quick. Loved the pie!

Place seems to be very popular with the locals. Food was nothing really special but there is something on the menu for just about anyone. Everything was freshly made and was hot when arrived at the table. You will not go home hungry and with everything on the pricey side in Petoskey, this place will not eat a hole in... More

We are here visiting family and have eaten here a few times for breakfast. The food is good and the service is fast. If you're looking for a good meal this is the place. Even for a packed Sunday at peak time, noon we only waited for maybe 10 minutes. Once seated lots of coffee and by the time we... More

We were led to believe that JW Filmore is a great choice for breakfast. Well, our one time experience would not lead us to believe that. Upon entry, the staff was not friendly nor looked like they were happy to see us there. In their defense, they were busy, but there was plenty of staff to handle the volume. Once... More

This is a restaurant just west of town which has very good food at reasonable prices! The place is not fancy but the food and service are great. On the first visit had their Red, White & Blue Buttermilk Pancakes. They were large, all the way to the edge of the large platter and were served hot. They come with... More

I was surprised at how good this was - I was expecting a big-boy style average dining and it was much better. It does have that sort of family diner look and feel, but the food is pretty good and the prices are great.

Always look for local restaurants when we travel, found this place through the yellow pages in the internet. Read their menu and had prime rib, fried chicken and all the rest of home cooked dishes. we went twice.

Our family went to this restaurant for lunch. The food sizes were not large and food was OK. Fries were crispy fried and greasy. Sandwiches were OK. Taco salad did not look very good. Service was fair. I would not recommend this restaurant. It looks tired down, inside & out.
