Sportsmen's is a great place for lunch or dinner. Their cook is well experienced and has traveled all over the world. The food is a great deal and it is very comfortable. Outside seating is available.

We stopped here for a pre-concert dinner and drink and were pleasantly surprised. The craft beer selection was decent, and the burgers were wonderful! Also conveniently located near the Olde Mill Inn where we were staying. This made for a great dinner and drink stop before our concert at DTE, and was affordable. We'll come back here again next time... More

I have eaten here a dozen times or so. Every meal has been good. The pizza is very good. It seems like locals visit here often . The wait staff are very friendly. The owner is always walking around making sure the service and food is good. Kind of an old fashioned good local restaurant. Customer service is part of... More

I have most of their entrees over the past year and every one was very delicious. The bar drinks are like homemade, no scrimping here!

We eat here often as the food is good and the prices are reasonable. In addition, the staff is always very friendly and helpful. Their fish and chips are delicious and so is the pizza. Get the apple puff pastry for dessert, but it is HUGE so plan to share it!

The line out the door says it all! Very few restaurants have food AND service as good as Sportsmen. Tom is sure doing something right. Wish all the restaurants in town were this good.

This is one of the oldest buildings in Waterford. It use to be a pony express back in the day. We have eaten here many, many times. The pizza is the worlds greatest. The stuffed hamburgers on pretzel buns are to die for. Oh and the newest addition to the menu, the pork tenderloin is soooo good. Everything is home... More
