We visited Pokey's for Breakfast as we heard they had delicious biscuits and gravy. Everyone enjoyed that dish. I ordered eggs, bacon, toast and hash browns and could not believe the portion size. I needed assistance with finishing it. The owner was very friendly and personable. This is a small place, but well worth breakfast. Not sure they serve lunch... More

Pokeys Café is sure more than meets the eye!! Larry rents the fastest golf CARS (they go 12mph LOL) and serves up the best coffee and breakfast. From the outside the place doesn't look very big, but its a nice surprise when you step inside. If you stay at the Grand Rivers INN, which is a must, step across to... More

This week was my 1st experience with Pokey's- it will not be my last. The food was flavorful, reasonably priced and large portions. Very friendly and hospitable group. The experience is much more of a "down home" atmosphere as opposed to a fine dining experience. This fits well for the lake area. I will return the next time I am... More

The "Open" sign was lit. The sign said Open from 7 until 10 ~ so we were greeted at the door to be told very nicely "It's 7 until 10AM" Really? Three hours a day? The lady recommended the cafe in the Market next door as a "very nice place to eat"

Ten of us were traveling across the country by motorcycle and stopped here for breakfast. We got good food, personable service and very reasonable prices. I loved this joint and would happily stop here again.

Pokey's is run by the owners of the Grand Rivers Inn. A entertaining couple. We had fun visiting with some of the locals that frequent this location. They have a limited breakfast menu which served our needs just fine and the price was down right cheap. The food was freshly cooked and quick. We were thankful for a breakfast location.

One of the best biscuits I have ever had. Very laid back and relaxing. We got sausage biscuits for the road. Great service.
