We stopped in about 30 minutes before closing. The staff did not seem too happy that we were there. We knew they were closing so we just ordered off the kids menu and had salads. It took longer than expected since they were not busy....The food was ok. The salads were not very big for the price. The menu looked great for breakfast and we will try again for that.More

Based on previous reviews, I was hoping for a better than average breakfast, so I was somewhat disappointed.

Stopped in for lunch on our way to Traverse City along scenic M22. Small, hometown feel with great food, good service and prices. Will definitely stop in again when in the area.

Such a cute place. And, yes, a GREAT cup of coffee. (Ask about their secret). Biscuits are home-made and excellent. Staff hustles and the food was very good. Great value. Definitely drive north for breakfast when you are in Manistee !

We love this spot for breakfast ... lunch is probably good, too, but we are locked in on breakfast. Food is great, service is matches food, and welcome is warm.

While driving thru the west side of the state we stumbled (thankfully) on this perfect little diner. It was surprisingly busy for a week day during March but we didn’t have to wait and were seated right away. Our server was a sweet young lady...with a pleasant attitude and humor to match ours. You can get good food almost anywhere but you can’t get a good experience everywhere. This little vintage license plate loving spot was on the water with a nice view. The food was very good, I ordered chicken and waffles which were awesome. They had GLUTEN free hamburger buns! Don’t forget to take home a few coffee cups 😉.More

Have eaten here several times and thought it was about time to write a review. Each time I have been was a great experience. Very nice menu with a variety of choices. Breakfast and lunch have never disappointed. Service was always quick and friendly. Great...view of Portage Lake. Great bonus is a 5% discount if you pay cash! So if you are driving beautiful M-22 you should stop here!More

I live in onekama and frequent this place for breakfast. The food is plentiful and delicious. I only gave it a 4 star because the wait can be due to lack of personnel. So if your not in a hurry this place is great.

Stopped here after staying the night in Manistee and had a wonderful breakfast. The food was great, the view was great, and the service was excellent. We ate on the deck and the two other tables were empty. It was a very quiet and peaceful...breakfast for us. I highly recommend the M22 Grill.More
