You have to look for this saloon as it is not on the main drags, but it is well worth it. Enjoyed good drinks, broasted chicken, crab poppers and BLT sandwich. All excellent! Looking forward to going back.

Was passing through town, thought we would hit an odd place. Rude service. Could tell we weren't a "regular" and they had better things to do. Everyone stared at us and made us uncomfortable. Needless to aaybwe didn't stay

This is a hidden gem well worth the effort to find. Great old saloon with excellent food. This is a really fun place to stop for lunch as you start your trip up M-22

We had a very nice dinner at the Painted Lady Saloon. The oldest in Manistee, still has tin ceiling. They are know for the chicken and fist dinners. Interesting decorations inside, very eclectic. Will come back again when in the area

Have always gone for dinner- broasted chicken, patty melts have been regulars. Recently went for breakfast which they just started serving within the last year- also excellent and very fairly priced!
