We were about to get on I-75 and decided to eat lunch before heading north. We stopped in at my suggestion as I'd eaten at another Rusty Bucket-now closed- on Orchard Lake Road and enjoyed the experience. This time we walked in and were greeted almost immediately but the young woman didn't seat us for at least 10 minutes and... More

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel we were staying at. It's nothing fancy and much like many chain restaurants like TGIF, Ruby Tuesday, etc. If you've been to one, you've been to them all. We knew what type food we would get when we walked in. What made our visit special was the staff. We were a very large... More

Nice place, was crowded on a Thursday night. Good for both families and adults. Large seating area, bar area, and outdoor patio. Nice selection on the menu, and food was very good.

This was the second time that we have spent money here and it will be the last. The service was terrible. We waited 10 minutes to get water. Another 10 for drinks. Another 10 for our order and then 35 minutes to get our food. The food was tepid at best. By my count, there were only 5 servers working... More

A family friendly sports bar and restaurant, serving a wide variety of food not just your typical sports bar food.

We'd like to address the food, but we never got a chance to order any. The restaurant was virtually empty when two of us arrived around 3 for a late lunch. Three workers chatted amiably at the host station, but after seating us, they went back to chatting. I went to the station and asked for a server. But of... More

When there last month for a business meeting. The food selection and quality of the serving was below par. It was overpriced and I thought that the service was poor. Location is good.

On the surface this place appears to be really nice. Their beer menu is quite good, featuring many Michigan micro-brews. But, that is where it stops. The service was friendly but average, at best. Several of us ordered the beef stroganoff.......there may have been 5 small pieces of beef and a few mushrooms. The sauce was tasty but also limited.... More

A few families stopped for dinner after a hockey game (about 18 people). The servers were overwhelmed the entire time we were in the restaurant. It took some time to get our drink orders and more often than not, we had empty glasses in front of us. Some food for the group came in appropriate amount of time, but for... More
