We have only had breakfast and lunch and both are really good. Service is excellent as is the food. Have had many different items on the menu and all were very tasty.

Stopped here on the way home from downstate Michigan. Not disappointed. The Fish and Chips was very good. My husband had one of their Octoberfest Specials-The Combo Platter and it was incredible. The Schnitzel and Potato Pancakes were excellent. The side of red cabbage was the best he ever had (as he told me). Will definitely eat here again when... More

four of us had dinner here tonight and were pleased with the food. No one had a bad meal. Selection of meals were good, service was good and food came out hot.

Enjoyed a great dinner here. My husband had the Hot Beef Sandwich and really raved about it. The gravy was really good. I enjoyed the lake perch dinner, very big serving. French fries were fresh made, coleslaw was excellent. Our service was too notch. Would definitely go there again if in the area.

Stopped here for the Friday Night Fish Fry. The fish was good and so was the pulled pork. We would go back here again.

I've tried a few different things on the menu, breakfast lunch or dinner. You can't go wrong. But I would definitely say the white cheddar mashed potatoes are by far the BEST!! We've brought family and friends here a few times and they always seem to want to go back when they vusit.

We ate here and my husband loved the shrimp! I ordered meatloaf and it reminded me of home cooked meatloaf from my childhood. I would order it without gravy but that is my personal preference. The staff was friendly and atmosphere.was casual.

We do make our meatloaf and the fact that it reminds you when you were growing up assures us we are doing it correctly. Thank you for the great review. More

When possible we choose to go with homemade. It seems to be harder and harder to come by these days. We appreciate you taking notice. It means a lot. Hope you'll be By again soon. More
