I'm a frequent diner at the Hotel. However, this is the first time I've ordered take out. Overall I'm very pleased with the food quality and speediness of the order. One of my favorite menu items in the hotel's famous chicken wings. I had expected they wouldn't be the same quality when ordering them as take. How wrong I was.... More

Lot of history here in this once downtown hotel. Even better is the food and drink. Their hotel burger is awesome as is the hotel special pizza. They also have a large carry out business. Entertainment on weekends. This is family friendly as we often take our grand children here. Very good kids menu. Summertime fine on their large coveted... More

So, I personally love the all wood floor bar saloon feel. There are 2 floors. I like the main "saloon-style" they have balcony seats and seating on the wraparound porch that can be nice on a nice day with a little view of the smaller downtown view of South Lyon. We have been going regularly for about 3 years now.... More

Came on friends recommendation to downtown South Lyon. Now, if you know southeastern Michigan, downtown South Lyon is not the first place you would run to, right???? You should!!! Super family friendly, good food and it won't break the bank. Basics but much of the food is homemade on the premises. Extensive list of choices, we went safe with ribs,... More

The gang meets up on Friday nights and has dinner and beverages along with a lot of discussions on various subjects. You don't have to be dressed up to dine or drink at the hotel. Very casual and comfortable. Extremely old and quaint. The magician on various Friday nights is fantastic. If you are going to go on Friday or... More

With the history and all that I read on the website I had high expectations, but ended up being disappointed. Some of that is entirely on me. I missed the part about live music in the evening and so the fact that a main point of our dinner was to "catch up", the music was a problem. We ended up... More
