Friday night fish fries offer an excellent variety of fish, including blue gill. Soups for lunch are wonderful, especially the chicken pot pie. They are now serving breakfast too.

Have eaten here several times and have always enjoyed the food, especially the broasted chicken! Just recently they have started to serve breakfast. Their omelets are delicious. I especially like the large coffee cups!

The Painted Lady is located in Manistee, MI it is the oldest operating saloon in town. The bar and tin ceiling are original from when it was built back in the late 1880's. When Bob and Linda Venne bought the building in 1994 they turned it into The Painted Lady Saloon which is now well known for their broasted chicken and award winning home-made soup. They offer breakfast, lunch and dinner plus a full bar from open to close. With a wide variety of food to choose from it's the perfect stop for a good meal and a little bit of history.
