We stayed next door so we went here because of reviews and ease of proximity. Were we're tired from a long trip and starving. We were seated promptly and it was apparently prom night.

Yesterday was my birthday I wanted a special meal and not have to drive far. We went to Cedars dinning at the Sawmill and had the best shrimp it tasted like lobster. Great meal and good value.

I got out on a limb here. I told a large group of parents that I had ate here years ago and it was great. Lucky for me the restaurant still serves the best prime rib around. Nothing but compliments from our group. Met a waitress who had been there for 29 years. They are doing something right.

This is, from what we could tell, the best restaurant to sit down and have a very nice meal in Grand Rapids. Great beef dishes, and a great Walleye fish dinner special. The atmosphere takes you back 50 years, with wood paneling, fireplace. The service is top notch. Highly recommend.

Our waitress Patti was kind, patient and had great timing. Ambience is really warm and cozy. We loved sitting near the fire. I had prime rib which was perfectly cooked, my husband's dinner was also great. Kids menu has many selections which was fun for my daughter to choose what she wanted. We ordered from sundowner menu and thought everything... More
