we like this place, but our service was not as good the last time we were there, they have a good salad bar, but I had fish, and it was a little greasy. And our waitress never came back to see how our meal was...

I had blue gill which was excellent. Salad bar was a nice treat. A rarity anymore. Jalepeno soup was interesting. If we reordered it we would have asked... More

Love this place; huge menu to choose from and a terrific, fresh salad bar. We've been going to Zeke's for years (5X Grand Masters) and will continue to do so. My review is a 4-star only because the ribs aren't as tender as they used to be, so I have stopped ordering them. Also, it's odd that a house boasting... More

I have eaten at Zeke's many times when visiting Dowagiac. It is typical American cuisine. Nothing special, but there are not many other places to eat. Good place to visit with friends.

We love Zekes! A very good selection...something for even the picky ones in the family. Good value. Can't recall ever having a bad meal here. Worth the visit.

Good food, great beer. Very casual bar, restaurant atmosphere. It was getting a little dirty the last time we were there.

After reviewing others' TripAdvsor comments, we decided to make the 40-minute drive for a night out with friends. The staff was very friendly throughout the entire evening, and the salad bar was decent. The rest left much to be desired. The service was extremely slow, and the staff kept apologizing for the kitchen being backed up. The restaurant was only... More

Visited here with friends had not been to this restaurant for two years. Looks the same and menu also not changed. I had a BLT this time. Free popcorn!

Zeke's is a large restaurant with a menu to match, a terrific salad bar, friendly servers and a pleasant informal atmosphere. They serve a good meal at a fair price. Well recommended.
