This place has severed the locals since forever and has a loyal following. DW and I had a so-so lunch. My ham/Swiss/cole slaw sandwich with home made (?) potato chips was tasty but was smallish and over priced at $10. Chips were too salty and not very good. Beef noodle soup had lots of good stuff but lacked any flavor.... More

My sisters and I were all visiting from out of State. Had the best breakfast in this great diner! We stumbled on it accidentally then found out later from a local that it is THE place to go for breakfast. Service was great and so was the food. I'd go back again.

My wife and I needed some breakfast. After a quick search I found Rounds Restaurant with some great reviews. Atmosphere: small town family owned. Lots of rooster decorations. I thought it was fantastic! It's the opposite of chain restaurants...it feels very real, very personal. Food: great! We both ordered omelettes, she with toast and myself with pancakes. The omelettes were... More

Good breakfast. Nice little place for breakfast or lunch. This is the type of place local folks go to have a good simple meal.

What a quaint little place. Reminded my husband of his youth in Wales. My son with food allergies did well here. Huge portions. Great prices. We ate very well! Would definitely come again.

Traveling for work I wanted a place that was not a chain. I got it here, it was the local type of place you would expect. The food was good and the service delivered by a waitress that was in a cast. She tried so hard to make it not my problem that she was in a cast but was... More

Went here for bfast last week while vacationing in northern MI, server was super sweet. Restaurant was dirty; I know it's a diner but the carpet and bathrooms were filthy. Was expecting more from the corned beef hash, lots of potatoes and onions, not too much corned beef.

Round's is legendary in TC. It's been around for decades and many of the staff are "lifers". That combination only happens when the food is great and the staff are like family. There are a lot of reasons this place is still around. Do yourself a favor and check it out. The food is home-made, tasty, and portions are generous.... More
