We were overnighting in Pontoon Beach and were tired from traveling all day. We decided on Uncle Linny's Family Restaurant. It was the quintessential small town eatery and the food was hearty. Salad bar didn't have much of a selection. Only major drawback, no alcohol.

We always try and find different restaurants to eat and hopefully enjoy. Uncle Linny's in Pontoon Beach is a family ran establishment. They have great food and even greater prices. All day breakfast starting at $2.99. We have enjoyed breakfast and lunch. Great fried chicken and gyros. Check it out....

We enjoy going to Uncle Linnys. The menu offers a good range of choices. Daily specials are good and salad bar is usually fresh. It is an affordable option for a dinner out.

My husband & I go often for breakfast, it's the closest restaurant to our house. We like it because It's inexpensive and always good. Lunch is hit or miss.

The front desk personnel at the hotel where we were staying recommended Uncle Linny's. The interior needs some updating, but the food and service were great and the prices were extremely reasonable. My husband was going to order the "all you can eat" walleye, but the server recommended he order the regular plate since it was cheaper and most people... More
