Great food, the best service!

My first day up to Traverse city always starts with breakfast at Rounds. The red velvet hash with egg is one of my all time favorite breakfasts, any place ever! The service is great. Don't expect a fancy "foodie" spot, just a down to earth place , with great home cooked meals,

Dave's Red Velvet hash is fabulous, and addictive. Typical diner interior and food - but a fun experience and GREAT food! Friendly service! Would do this again.

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
