Breakfast was good. Staff friendly and attentive. Homemade cinnamon rolls the size of the plate and recommend. Fresh bread was the cherry on top of our visit.

Both my husband and I loved the food here! Service was wonderful. Polite and didn't hover. Homemade bread to die for! Took loaf home. So good we went back next day for lunch again.

My wife was amazed that my mouth was not big enough for my sandwich. Shaved beef with sautéed onions and green peppers on homemade bread.

I have been going to breakfast and occasionally to dinner at Old Hamlin for many years. I am in their area for a month at a time a couple of times every year. This place is consistently good in every way. It has been family...owned and operated for several generations and have served me and my family for four generations. Thanks for being my resturant home away from home!More

Our family visited Ludington for a one day while taking a round trip on Badger. Had to find some food, didn't feel like waiting in line at a busy place down the street so found a spot that looked promising. Walked through the back with...our maskson. We were seated right by the buffet that was open on our side. Again with our masks on and hands behind our backs we got up to take a peak not realizing that we are doing something wrong. "Hey, you! You two, get out of there! You can't be there! " was a loud voice coming from a way back . She clapped at us and scream so the entire place could hear. My daughter and I were treated like dogs. Embarrassed in front of everyone. My husband calmed me down because I was ready to walk. I have worked for 30 years in a customer service and would not even imagine treating anyone like that. food was good but atmosphere was ruined by some horrible, unhappy old witch in charge.More

Always come here for breakfast, ever since I was a small child. Food is consistent and plentiful. Don't let your eyes get bigger than your stomach. Two pancakes (which are malted so they are fluffy and huge) fill me up I don't even get hungry...until after normal dinner time. The servers are totally old school and on top of things - always refilling your coffee, making sure your meal is good, and making suggestions for things they think you will like (if you let them). The place has not been updated in decades, which is good in some ways (nostalgia) and not so good in others (feels unclean - but isn't - and dimly lit). Lots of offerings on the menu and they don't rush you. The server took our cash and made change right at the table like they did in the old days. Love this place!More

This place has been here a long time you can tell. The decor is not great. The menu is huge. You can get anything from breakfast, sandwiches, comfort southern cooking and Italian! The servers are all older woman, but move quickly. They are also very...nice. I had saganaki for the first time. A Greek cheese dish that they make at the table. DeliciousMore

My wife and i visted the hamlin when we pulled into ludington after a long drive. I had the hamburger steak and my wife had the roger burger. Both were excellent. Mine was served with fries and a side salad. The price was very resonable...for a tourist destination.More
