But unfortunately it burned down last summer. I'm looking forward to the reopening once they rebuild. It was a great place for meeting friends and always had great food and service.

On a Monday night we stopped to have dinner at the South Lyon Hotel. We waited several minutes to be seated outside on the porch where only one other couple was seated.

Went in for the Friday fish fry and wad not disappointed. Waitstaff was great and food was great too. Sometimes there is a little wait but it's worth it. Pizza is good too pretty close to best in town. Give it a try..you will not be sorry.
