Portions large. Daily Specials. This restaurant is mostly visited by local's. The food is good and the service is good. We would go back but there are many places to eat in Chelsea. We only get here once per year.

Went to breakfast for a couple of days. I was very happily surprised! The omelettes were good, the raisin toast terrific. The bloody mary's were well made, not too strong and the olives were tasty! Our server, Maria, was really very helpful. This is clearly someplace that locals frequent as everyone that walked in greeted everyone else at the tables,... More

Service is helpful, friendly and we always enjoy talking with the servers. Food is prepared very well and the servings are good size. The salad bar is small .. the items taste good and look good too. The menu has a good variety from hamburgs to steaks, fish, chicken, etc.. Prices are normal for hometown restaurants. I always leave a... More

Stiver's has been around since the 1950's, so has most of the interior decor. Don't let this fool you though. Good burgers and home cooking style meals like open faced roast beef sandwich and mashed potatoes.

We were looking for a place that served cold beer and perhaps with a nice ipa selection on draft. No luck here but the pot roast and bread pudding was worth the stop. It's a run down location with decor dated from the early 70's. The staff is friendly and the food was good. Would we stop again? Probably not....the... More

Stivers is a little like “Cheers”, most of the people who frequent it are regulars and everybody knows their names. Well known for their burgers, breakfast specials and meal specials, Stivers always seems to draw a decent crowd . Soups are good and the waitstaff are friendly. Go here when you want a break from the chain restaurant monotony and... More

We're going to be moving from this area of Michigan, so we are starting to zero in on dining at all the places about which we have previously said, "I'd like to try that place sometime." We have been driving by Stivers Restuarant for 20 years and never gone in. We've heard their drinks are really strong, but we opted... More

This place is exactly what you expect when you pull up. Nothing fancy but good food, good drinks and good service. For the money you can't beat it!

This is an old truck stop that's been there forever. We hadn't been years and it really hasn't changed - many "good ole boys" still hangout in the bar. Drinks were cheap and stiff. Only had a munchie - deep fried potato skins - really good and large serving. The east side is the restaurant side, bar on west. If... More
