Wife and I stopped in and had a quick bite there one night while staying in Petoskey. Average menu, but it gets the job done. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a family with kids. Decent prices, it's nice when you are on vacation to get a decent meal and not be gouged. We both had sandwiches with a... More

Stopped by there on our last day, hoping for a good hearty breakfast....nope. I had the build your own omlet, average, the hash browns were too thick when cooked so lots of soft potatoes, I think they have a mold they cook them in because both of ours were the exact size. Hubby had eggs, bacon & sausage. Eggs over... More

I ordered that Philly Cheese Steak, it was on a "mini sub roll" so very small for a philly and it was just thrown together, no presentation at all, and they just plopped cream cheese on it, who puts plain cream cheese on a Philly?? Probably will not eat there again, the server was nice, but took a long time... More

parents shared omelet, each had coffee. I had French toast, no one had meat, and the bill was about $25! Bird feeders around the perimeter of the restaurant was a nice touch, and the location was perfect...

We've had breakfast at JW Filmore's and this trip we tried dinner. The service was fast and friendly, and the food was very good. We had the sizzler steak (6 oz), cooked medium, and it was tender. Hubby had lake perch and said it was delicious. It's a family-oriented restaurant with minimal decor, but it's great for a solid meal... More

We had the special 2 different days, Ribs and fish. Both were excellent and so was the service. The place was also clean.

My husband and I had the special which was beef stew over biscuits and bread pudding for dessert. The beef stew was OK. The bread pudding was unlike anything I ever had; the only sweetness to it was the whipped cream. My turkey dressing tastes better. The bright spot was our server, Rilla Jo. Most of the other staff seemed... More

You can easily miss this cafe as it is located back from the busy street. It was located near our hotel so we chose it for breakfast. We were glad we did. The wait staff was very friendly and accommodating, the menu had good choices and the food was well prepared and reasonable priced. Nothing fancy, just good comfort food.

Thank Magnolia13
