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

A little out of the way, but worth the drive! WLT serves up large portions of great food with every meal, the burgers are great, but the turkey rueben sandwich is one of the BEST that I've ever had. The soups and salads are very tasty and complete the lunch experience. Service staff is very helpful and prompt, and they... More

Although we've been here many times, and have enjoyed it each time, this was the first time for the breakfast on the weekend and we were not disappointed. Lots of choices on the menu and very reasonable pricing, good service and lots of food.

The breakfast on weekends is our favorite, quiet and relaxing. Look out over the water and see the boats skiing and the fisherman catching fish.
