Like many others we were passing through town after shopping at the local market. All four of us enjoyed our lunch choices: BLT, burger, Italian sandwich & Black Forest sandwich. What we especially enjoyed was their homemade ham & navy bean soup. My toast on the BLT was a bit dark but all in all lunch was a hit and... More

Had a group of 10 of us come in on Sunday morning and the breakfast buffet was delicious. Best buffet I've ever eaten at. The french toast was amazing!

Wonderful service and food. We visited passing thru to visit the Amish stores and we each ordered something different. Everyone's meal looked great. The manager greeted each 'regular' by name when they walked in.

I just went here this past weekend and was pleasantly surprised and pleased with their food. I have not had many good food experiences in Mio and this will be a new stop for me in the future.

They serve very good food and comes with the salad bar Very good wait staff and fast service. Also, the portions are larger than most restaurants, you won't go away hungry.

We stopped here for breakfast on a Monday morning. We ordered a ham and cheese omelet with hash browns and toast. Between the size of the omelet and big portion of hash browns the toast had to come on top of the hash browns, and this was a pretty decent sized plate too. Our server was very friendly and stopped... More

This place has been here forever and continues to dish out good food, good service in a decent atmosphere. Their desserts are wonderful and if you want something special on your plate, they could probably do it for you.

Unpretentious looking good from the outside with a definite northern Michigan vibe. The service (seat yourself) was timely. It was lunch time when we arrived but since the the food was great, it was worth the wait. My lunch arrived before my partners but he didn't seem to mind. Casual setting great for individuals or families or business lunches. Lots... More

My son wanted to go to the restaurant we have used for years. Many of the dishes are from scratch, and the pie is made right on the premise. Good selection on the menu, and many locals use this place often.
