We were recommended to visit Frenchies by a bartender in Suttons Bay. He had raving things to say about the establishment; however, we were highly disappointed. Aside from Frenchies only having a max capacity at 10, the server still "shoved us in" at a table...More

Huevos rancheros was terrible. More like raw egg soup drenched in salsa verde with 4 little chunks of pork ! Worst $12 breakfast ever!!! Won't be back for that slop again.

My parents ran across this place. I had mentioned it a few times, so they decided to give it a try. They hated it so much, I feel personally responsible and feel the need to share... "Smells like the place was on fire, someone pissed...More
