Great family restaurant

Most of the time I just get one of the daily specials, but they have a large menu and serves breakfast all day. Everything is always good, not just ok. Large portions and great staff. The white chicken chili won't leave you hungry.

The Liver and Onions was perfect, with just the right amount of gravy, and a colorful serving of vegetables. The staff is very friendly, and the prices are reasonable.

The food here is really good, and the staff was friendly. We ate here for dinner and the all you can eat fish was really good. The white chili was also very good. I would have given a better review but did not care for the bus cart full of dirty dishes out in view for everyone to see.

We stopped in for lunch and found the menu full of selections. Food was very good too. We'll stop again soon. Location is half way up a hill on a main road, but it's sort of hard to see the restaurant building unless you really look for it. Give it a try sometime, I think you'll be surprised.

Chose this restaurant for breakfast on the way out of Petoskey, and we wish now we would have just eaten at the complimentary breakfast bar in our hotel. Our server had only one friendly thing to say...which was that I was a good samaritan for telling her that she had forgotten to put on the bill the side order of... More

If you think it's ok to stare at a dirty bus cart with dirty dishes piled high, I asked if that was where the cart always sits and the waitress didn't see a problem. The coffee cups where also the grimiest cup I've ever touched, didn't order any food just got up and left.

Not fancy--just everything you would expect from a family restaurant. The Friday all-you-can-eat cod is a good deal an I would highly recommend it.

Perfect Sunday night supper place! The fried chicken & mashed potatoes were perfect. Service was very attentive and very quick. Loved the pie!

Place seems to be very popular with the locals. Food was nothing really special but there is something on the menu for just about anyone. Everything was freshly made and was hot when arrived at the table. You will not go home hungry and with everything on the pricey side in Petoskey, this place will not eat a hole in... More
