“Filling, good value, great service, huge menu”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

The julianne salads I've had here are stunningly filling. Everything is filling. Sometimes the presentation is more like, "Here's your food...enjoy," but one doesn't go to Sunrise for the aesthetics. The breakfast skillets are a real taste treat, practically steaming hot on a metal plate set in a wooden tray. There is absolutely nothing extravagant about any of the dishes. This is a restaurant that could easily just say "Eat" on a blaring neon sign. It's a great place to go any time of day, a very good place to talk with family or friends, and an exceptional place to eat comfort food that sticks with oneself and and makes one feel that they just enjoyed a hearty meal. While there doesn't seem to be any dish that jumps out and makes one want to proclaim they had the meal of a lifetime, there doesn't seem to be a bad choice on the menu. Taking someone here for the first time is a safe bet...they'll find something on the massive menu that will appeal to them and they'll enjoy it thoroughly.

“A slice of sunshine!”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

This was our first meal in Duneland and it was wonderful. The staff was friendly, the food well priced and very tasty. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good old family restaurant.

“Surprise, Surprise !”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Wow, this was great. My husband and l went for a drive one morning and ended up in Chesterton. We decided to stop here and try it. We're both glad we did. We have been there now three times in two weeks, what does that tell you. I had a Irish Skillet,toast, and iced tea, he had a Tennessee Omelet, toast,and coffee. Our bill was $20.72. There was so much food we took it home. I reheated mine the next day for breakfast at home,(it was still good). The place is family friendly, clean, and easy to find. The servers were very nice also. This is now one of my favorite's to go to on the weekend for breakfast. While your in town go north a couple miles and visit lake michigan. It was the perfect day for my husband and l to go out alone for awhile. What more could you want.
