Have been here many times,especially for the All-You-Can-Eat Fish Fry (or Broil) on Fridays. Every Sunday they serve up a Family-Style Chicken Dinner that rivals Frankenmuth. Waitstaff is always friendly and attentive, and many have been with the restaurant for years and treat you like family. The owner is very hands-on and personally sees to every detail. Excellent dining value... More

We weren't sure about eating here since we remembered when it was just a "bar" filled with smoke. Since smoking is no longer permitted, and the owners have changed their menu, we have been back about 10 times. The portions are large and food has always been excellent! We will continue to eat there.

Food was great and service too. But they allow smokers on the patio and to congregate under the patio by the front door. Ruined what would have been a great dining experience. Fish-n-chips were good but not good enough to make me go back and sit in a cloud of cigarette smoke while I eat them. We specifically picked the... More

We were told that they run a great special on broasted chicken, well they serve a large portion family style chicken dinner at a very reasonable price. Now the rest of the story, it was not cooked all the way, it had blood on our plate. Hate to ask for help but we did. They more than willing brought a... More

We always get a good meal from a friendly staff here. Gluten free pizza is pretty amazing too. Highly recommend this restaurant to those looking for nice variety at a fair price.

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!
