Their homemade potato chips were perfect. The spice and flavor of their meats were spot on. The food was entirely delightful. This is a must visit place for all out of town visitors looking for good food.

We stayed at the Quality Inn across the street, and walked over for dinner. We dined in and found the restaurant was warm, but trendy and updated. Our waitress was friendly and attentive, and the restaurant itself felt clean. We ordered the cheese board as...an appetizer, which didn't have anything too crazy on it, but the selection was tasty. We had a Bloody Mary and a glass of Moscato, along with the meatloaf and burger, which were both delicious. The onion rings are fantastic as well! We would have ordered dessert too, but we were too full! Overall, we had a great experience, and would definitely recommend The Den.More

I ordered for a BYO burger as take-out in the restaurant. My expectations were not the greatest, after the waitress wasn’t able to tell me were the meat is sourced from.... Burger was cold, meat was not good, missed ketchup as ordered. Side Salat came...with carrots and croutons, even though it was ordered without... Saying that, I recommend don’t eat at the DEN.More

Excellent dinner entrees, best filet mignon in three years, the Den and BYO burgers were cooked perfectly at medium rare, chips and fries were crispy and flavorful!The duck, scallops, and game hen entrees were delicious and worth ordering! Lobster bisque soup-non better, with nice chunks...of lobster. The chefs cooked a fabulous meal and highly recommend and WE WILL BE BACK!More

Stopped in for lunch with a friend and had a delicious burger --out-of-the-ordinary enough to be interesting, but still satisfied my taste for a burger. Second visit I had some work to get done and went in by myself, ordered the artichoke dip as a...snack while working and it was the best I've ever had (not an exaggeration!). I'm not sure what the different flavor was but really gave it a nice twist. Definitely recommend!More

I dined at the Den while visiting my brother at Michigan Tech. Our entrees of duck and cornish hen were well-prepared and beautifully plated. They also have an interesting wine selection. The prices here are higher than average for Houghton but reasonable for other parts...of the country, and the food is really delicious! I would love to go back.More

We went here for an late afternoon drink, but menu was so unique we decided we had to try. So we shared 4 appetizers. Everything we had was delicious! Scallops, mussels, beef bites and truffle fries. Would definitely go back. Our server was very friendly...and service was excellent!More
