This was my second time at the Haywire restaurant, and I was not disappointed! My husband, my two year old daughter and my in-laws all came here for dinner. The restaurant is very clean and the servers were friendly! They even brought my daughter home made applesauce out before we even ordered just so she can snack on something. She... More

We refer our guests to The Haywire because they literally never let us down. Always great service- very 'one on one' in service delivery, and the food is great. They fry fish perfectly- their chicken and biscuits is great. Half chicken; phenomenal. Great beer selection, too. You won't be disappointed- worth the drive every time.

We can't say enough, rave enough or eat enough at or about this wonderful restaurant. Nora, Kevin and Pat are accommodating, friendly and very good at serving delicious meals. We spent the summer in the UP and shared meals with friends and family in this establishment at least once a week and everyone raved about the quality of their food... More

We have been here half a dozen times and have received excellent service each time. The food is homemade and not bar food like so many places in the area. Tonight we ordered pizza and Nora made our crust and pizza exactly as we had ask. Some of the best I have ever had. Homemade sausage was perfectly seasoned. Another... More

Stumbled on this place several years ago and it never disappoints. BBQ is awesome, salads fresh, breads fresh and tasty, nice beer selection. Clean and bright with top notch staff.

Made a point to drive here because it had gotten good TripAdvisor reviews. Unfortunately we were very disappointed. My husband's hamburger was so dry he couldn't eat it. When he brought this to the waitress attention she just said "I'll tell the kitchen". Never offered to bring him something else and did not remove it from the bill, even though... More

Thank you for taking the time to drive out to The Haywire and leave a review. I am sorry you had a negative experience.

A friend recommended this restaurant. It was a good choice. We enjoyed Haywire's home cooking. (P.S. it's named Haywire after an old local railroad.)

My son (24yrs) and I took a long weekend in the Munising area to enjoy some hiking and sight seeing. We finished our hike late on Sunday and decided to take the recommendation from the motel owner (North Star) and try the Haywire Restaurant. Excellent recommendations and decision to try this wonderful establishment. Most notable was the fact that we... More
