Delicious food, good tunes, great service, and a lovely atmosphere all for a decent price. My mom and I had a late lunch / early dinner. She ordered the special which was stuffed roast beef on garlic bread with mushroom & onion gravy with french fries and cole slaw for $8.95. She swapped out the cole slaw for the mac... More

I eat here occasionally and the food is generally good. Wait staff is excellent! The biggest complaint I have is that in the winter it is cold in the restaurant. Many times I don't take my coat off. I have tried several different seats and it doesn't really matter.

We go by this place quite often, and they advertise their Michigan's heavily. Never had a Michigan, so it was time to try them. Ordered a platter with two Michigans, and the wife had the same with just one. Platter included two sides. We both chose the fries and coleslaw. They were good steamed franks with a chili type sauce... More

Today we stumbled upon this great establishment in plattsburgh. I've had Michigan's before but my colleague had not so the lovely waitress recommended a platter for us. Good choice! The food was good and the place was great. If I lived near by this would be my go to spot. Good times were had by all!

This place was fantastic. It reminded me a lot of what A&W offers but more well done. The Michigan Dog is a must have when visiting this location. The staff isn't super friendly but the food makes up for it.

Breakfast is breakfast, right? I ordered what I always order in any restaurant, but the eggs at Gus' were cooked perfectly. Yolk to my satisfaction, not fried in oil. Toast was crispy outside, chewy inside. Service was friendly, prices very reasonable, but my biggest compliment was to the chef.

Had breakfast here 2 times in one week. Food comes out almost as soon as you order. Very good food. Wait staff is accomodating. Prices are reasonable. It is relatively convenient to get in and out but it can be a busy intersection. If you're using the Champlain ferry from Cumberland Head to Hero give yourself an extra half hour... More

My first time there, had heard about it from friends and advertising, very enjoyable meal. Fast and very friendly service, many choices on the menu, choice of seating (stools, booths, tables). Food came pretty much as ordered (burger was a tad overcooked, had asked for medium), portions were good to large, prices reasonable. Star of the show was the hot... More
