Got a chicken quesadilla here that came with chicken fries. It was delicious and a good price! The atmosphere is definitely outdated but the food and service is good!

We had breakfast here. I had the Greek omelette and my husband had the veggie skillet. Both were delicious! Lots of food. Homemade bread melts in your mouth! Outstanding service!

The best breakfast in Ludington! The inside has an older feel but definitely nice. Same staff each year and the best corn beef hash! Yum0

We saw someone recommending this place to other vacationers. It's old, stuffy and the food isn't much to talk about. I had a gyro (the owners were Greek) and it was the frozen gyro meat you can get from the grocery store. Enough said. But the servers were all young and nice.

First of all, we are not a Greek restaurant. You could have asked if the gyro was from a spit like the big cities and we would have told you no. All of our meats beef, turkey, chicken, ham, corn beef, are all prepared here, not the gyro meat. Unfortunately there were many other choices you did not try. Secondly... More

Old Hamlin was recommended to us by a local. The food was very good and there is a large variety to choose from. They have a large salad bar and everything is fresh. The fresh homemade bread was really good. The inside is very old and could use an update.

Others mentioned not to be scared off by the décor. It is not fancy, but the food was well prepared and the portions were generous. We went for dinner. They only have beer and wine, not liquor. That was fine for us. There is more room to park in the back then on the street in front. AS I said,... More

thank you but we do have liquor as well. Sorry so many people need new decor. We don"t believe in a disposable world. If its not broken why do we have to fix it! More

Our family of five (2 adults, 3 kids, ages 4, 8 and 12) enjoyed breakfast here one Saturday morning. Our kids enjoyed the breakfast buffet, which was a great price, and had everything they wanted. My husband and I ordered off the menu, and were surprised by the large portions. The homemade French toast was delicious, and we all loved... More

Ducked in for dinner during the street fair. Definitely not fine dining but it was just good old diner food. I would stick to the basics to be safe but just.
