GOOD PIZZA IN WHITMORE LAKE

We usually have pizza & garlic bread sticks. Best pizza in the area. Breadsticks are usually good too. Sometimes over done. Also make sure that you tell them to give you some time between the stick & pizza, otherwise they will arrive almost at the same time. Fish & Chips are also good but a little... read more

We stopped here for lunch the other day. Had the lake perch dinners. The fried lake perch were nicely done and tasty, but could have been a bit more crispy. The baked potatoes were a bit too hard to eat all the way thru. The loaded baked potato soup had very large chunks of hard potatoes in it, so not... More

A very old but very comfortable place to get a good quick meal with a view of Whitmore Lake. The outside patio is a nice place to sit for the view but can be too hot on a summer afternoon because it is on a deck in the parking lot. Good specials are offered different nights of the weeek.

Stumbled on the WL Tavern whilst cruising my way from Ann Arbor toward Bay City on vacuum from Denver. It had all of the things necessary to attract me (See title) so I stopped in. WOW. Lobster Quesadillas? The rest of the menu was also revealing; either they're far too ambitious or they have a creative energy and someone who... More

This restaurant has a great sports restaurant atmosphere. Very good food at decent prices. The restaurant overlooks Whitmore Lake which you can see from the large patio window year round. The staff is always friendly and the restaurant serves many different types of American dishes, beer, wine, and all different types of mixed drinks. Many families come into this restaurant... More

Medium priced for most food items. Rather bland taste on most menu items. Small beer selection. Picture window overlooking lake is big draw. Nice waitress's and staff. Hires mostly high school girls from town.

A small family-friendly Tavern on the south shore of Whitmore Lake. The owners and staff try very hard to make each customer happy. The food is good, the portions are large and the service is excellent. As a local, I eat there 1-2 times/week with my crazy schedule. Their rib and mini-Filet specials are outstanding and the their signature homemade... More

Probably the dirtiest restaurant I have ever been to. If you can overcome that, the food is great. Was in the restaurant business for 25 years so we should know!

The sit-down space overlooks the pretty resort lake. Service was cheerful and efficient. Menu had the lots of hamburger things, which we didn't try. We had polish sausage dinner (which they had the class to call kolbasz,) which was ample and well flavored. I had Jambalaya which was well flavored, abundant, nicely spiced, but not outstanding. Overall, dinner was entirely... More

I had the polish sausage, homemade potato salad, side salad and mixed fruit, all included in the meal price of 10 bucks. There was no way I could finish it; so someone brought me a to-go box for the remainder. Service was amazing; they took my order, another was surveying the dining room, and as soon as someone finished their... More
