This restaurant has been here a long time. It's food is a good reason. Good solid dinner food. Chicken Philly Cheese Sandwich. One word for this "Great." Give it a try, we will go there again.

My favorite family restaurant, the food is consistently good, plentiful, and reasonably priced. Service is quick and efficient. Their pie is made just like my mom used to make hers! I especially like the chocolate pie...two of niches of meringue!

I live about a mile from this place and have been here at least 100 times in my life. Probably more. Food is decent run of the mill diner food. Good prices and service. 2 things I find weird is that they don't offer blueberry pancakes or fried mozzarella sticks. These seem like no brainers at a diner. I can't... More

The Bringer Inn restaurant is a classic local tradition run by the large Bringer family. Mike, Jim and the rest of the Bringers are really great people that care about the food and service they bring to your table. I am one of the many regulars who can be seen most mornings. I prefer the counter. It's amazing how much... More

The food here is not 'gourmet'. It's not 'cuisine'. It's just old fashioned good! A place to meet people you know in an extended family atmosphere. Nancy, Luis, Cheryl, Mike, Patrick, the whole gang works hard to give fast, caring service. They have wonderful omelets, breakfast menu, hamburgers, homemade soup (try the chicken noodle!!) nachos, Phillies, just wonderful plain old... More

The best place to go when craving diner food. The burgers are fantastic. Omelettes are great. I've never had anything horrible.

The place is a dump. Having said that, the food is fantastic, the portions are huge, and you are eating at an Saginaw institution. If you live here and haven't had their Coconut Crèam Pie, you are missing out!

We eat at Bringer whenever we visit partly because my niece is a waitress there but we have been going there long before that. It is a terrific value with a friendly atmosphere and huge portions! I love a place that gives you lots of bacon on the side with breakfast - cooked the way you like it (crispy for... More

Eat here often for breakfast. Great food for the price. The place is always busy but hardly ever have to wait for a table!

The place itself isn't anything to write home about & certainly not the cleanest place in town. The food is always good & they give you plenty to eat. Staff is friendly & quick to wait on you. If you decide to go Sunday morning, better get there before the church crowd or you will be waiting to eat.

Thank Dottie C
