The NY Strip was perfect. Really liked the fresh loaf of bread and homemade beef noodle soup. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Worth finding across the river.

My coworkers and I happened upon this place while searching for a nice meal after a long day. We found it! The steaks were among the best we'd ever had. Exceptional service from our server, Job. We will definitely be repeat customers on our trip to Alpena. Thank you for the hospitality!!

Our server Jobe was attentive, friendly and made our evening memorable. You can't find a better steakhouse in northern Michigan. With their wide variety of craft beers and historical artifacts on the walls, our dining experience couldn't have been better. If you're in Alpena, John A. Lau Saloon and Steakhouse is above and beyond, the best place around!

One of the best steaks I've had, and my parents said the same of their fish! Appetizers were great, and combined with great environment, makes it one of the best in Alpena. Right next to Thunder Bay Theatre, makes for a perfect night out within walking distance!

The food quality is slightly better than what one would expect from a frozen dinner. It's not that cheap either. Rather go somewhere else.
