“Outstanding -”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2011

In some ways I hate to recommend this place as I don't want it to become too crowded. We have been regulars here for more than 20 years and continually say that they have the best prime rib we have ever had. Their burgers and turkey ruebens are also better than anywhere else we have eaten - from San Francisco to NYC. Soups are excellent, fish/chips very good, nacho's, potato skins - - 98% of the time on the mark. If not to your expectations, will be cheerfully corrected. Reminds us of the old "Cheers" - familiar faces but newcomers always welcome and we "oldies" are happy to make menu recommendations. Thanks for the opportunity to add additional praise to our favorite place. Incidentally, it happens to be one of the oldest roadhouses in Michigan.

“Great burger”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2009

I've been a fan of the Stivers burger for many years. One of the best I've ever had. We've started sitting on the restaurant side to get away from the smoke in the bar. Normally we stay away from extremely smoky places, but the burger is so good that Stivers is an exception. If you plan on having a few adult beverages, be sure to have a designated driver. Stivers cocktails will kick your butt!

“Great Prime Rib and Cocktails”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2008

I would have never thought to go to stivers for prime rib but it will be a regular stop for me on saturdays. The prime rib was superb, large cut, it was tender and great flavor and under $17.00. And if you want to have a good cocktail and get more then your money’s worth this is the place. They call it getting stiverized.
