I went to this restaurant because it was very close to the Picture Rocks boat tour lot. They have average American food. I had the whitefish sandwich with fries. My fries were cold, so I had to send them back, but they gave me news. I thought the fish sandwich could be better since Munising is known for whitefish. Overall,... More

Located on the corner where people board the cruises to Pictured Rocks helps this place stay afloat. They have breakfast all day too which came in handy for us. It was a warm day so windows and doors were open which the flies liked too. they seemed a bit disorganized and in the weeds but when breakfast came it was... More

The service was very slow. One waitress running like crazy. Owner was present and did nothing to help the situation. The place was full midweek and they were not prepared.

If you want Whitefish over cooked and dry, a side of vegetables that are still frozen out of a steamer bag, and rice that is just plain white rice, then this place is for you. They didn't even get the type of bread correct on my wife's grilled cheese sandwich. No wonder there were so many dead flies on the... More

Our server was Denyell. She was polite, kind, used manors!?! The food was delicious! I got eggs over easy which they were!! Toast done perfectly, bacon done perfectly, crispy but not crunchy, hash browns were done perfectly! We got to sit at a table with a beautiful view. Super nice since we had a bad experience with a couple other... More

My husband and I had just got into town on a rainy Wednesday afternoon after driving up from Lapeer, Michigan. When we walked in, the sign said wait to be seated...and wait we did. For about 5-10 minutes...while we listened to someone in another room talking loudly and inappropriately. There was only one other patron and just when we were... More

This nautical themed restaurant is really cute and convenient to the Lake Shore. We just had breakfast. The serving sizes are generous but we thought overpriced. The blueberry pancakes were very tough- hard to cut, even with a knife. And pricey. Eggs and bacon, fine - but I suggest a new recipe for the flap jacks.

Food was not too bad. Service was extremely slow. We waited at least 40 minutes after ordering. Thought staff sprawled out sleeping in one of the booths was quite unprofessional and the owner was not friendly.

We went there for breakfast. There were four of us in our group and we all had omelets. They were Okay, but nothing to get excited about. The coffee was good, my husband ordered orange juice, and it came in a huge glass. We thought that the prices were high for breakfast food.

We both had breakfast and you can't really mess that up, it was good and I enjoyed the pancakes. OUR waitress was nice and did a great job. The poor couple behind our booth was not so lucky. Apparently they ran out of salsa, the waitress DID offer to bring something else but nothing specific and rather banal about it.... More
