My cousins know the owners of the restaurant through business contacts, so that's how we were able to get a table on a Sunday morning! The parking lot was very crowded, and so was the restaurant -- sure signs of a good place to eat.
The food is hearty, and there are quite a few menu selections. I didn't see anything that would fit into my Weight Watchers plan! Even for breakfast, I would like to see a little more fruit and vegetable offerings.
Service was very attentive, even on a busy day, and the waitress was cheerful about making accommodations for the young children who were in our party.

Friday night fish fry is excellent, try their walleye, so large it hangs off the large dinner plate. Service is grest, led by the owners, even have designated staff just to keep your drinks filled. Prices are reasonable.
Chippewa Family Restaurant is run the same way, great food, service and prices. Again owners are right there checking on quality and making sure eveything is up to your satisfaction. Can not say enough good about both restaurants.

Food is always good and the service too. The portions are big. When it's busy it still doesn't take long to get your food.

We love this place! Very good food portions and value for the money. Just a couple things I hope the owners change. Each time I get seated facing the bar. The same older lady wait staff is there and everytime she eating then takes the food order out and doesn't wash her hands. Yuck. She's always eating! No one should be eating in front of the customers as they should not be counting tips. It's tacky and again money is filthy and they don't wash their hands. I hope management sees this and talks to staff.

This is one of our favorite places. Best Friday Night Fish Fry. The owners greet everyone. The service is amazing. The food is good to great depending on what you get. Potato soup is yummy. The only down side is that there is sometimes a lot of people there so there is a wait for Friday nights and Sunday mornings. Never too long though.
