“Trying to be something its not.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

When you first walk in it seems like a homey little place, nothing fancy. Everything was extremely over priced. Dinner rolls were ice cold. Ordered oysters rockefeller for and appetizer. It was very good but but 6 for $15 was a little much. For dinner I ordered crab cakes. It was $25 and the cakes were the size of breakfast sausage patties and just as thin and flavorless. Came with a side of mashed potatoes that was just slopped on the plate. A friend I was eating with ordered a side salad which was not even a hand full of plain lettus topped with two or three pieces of melon- weird. They seemed like they are trying to be a gourmet restaurant with high prices to match. Food is mediocre setting is a bit strange and you defiantly do not get your money's worth. I'm from Chicago, maybe I just have higher standards in resturants.

“Lunch is tops”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

Stopped for lunch. Every time the food is excellent. They have very large salads, sandwiches, and fabulous from scratch soups. Everything is fresh. Pies are to die for.

“Great Food!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

We stopped by after our grandsons hockey game. Real good service.
My wife and I shared the Paw paw steak dinner and it was real good, would of liked a little less sauce on the steak, (the sauce was good)
but everything else, the potatoes and vegetables and rolls where real good, also the dill butter was good, but I like dill.
I'm glad we split the dinner, lots of food!
We had the dessert, some kind of chocolate cheese cake that was real good.
We said we would drive back down from Ada, Mi. just for dinner this summer.
