Very limited menu, as well as mediocre food and service. We stopped here for lunch while touring the Leelanua Peninsula on Labor Day. The experience was very disappointing.

Great breakfasts, open for lunch, very crowded in season. Have not gone there for lunch, because I fill up in breakfast.

The Early Bird has really good breakfasts, generous portions, and a wide variety of food. Would definitely go back.

I was not impressed with coming here. When we got out of our cars we smelled something amazing... The nearest restaurant to us was this place. It was NOT what we were smelling. We were not impressed with the menu... Small, very basic. The food...More
