“Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014

The food was terrible and my husband actually had to return his meal as it was so overdone it was inedible. We would not eat here again or recommend it to anyone.

“Nice up north feel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013 via mobile

Stop in for dinner on another Michigan road trip. O.J's has a U.P. feel to me with animal mounts and old signs hanging on the walls. Our table was slanted because the floor was tilted, showing the age and character of this old building. This is not a typical Applebees thank you!!
Our go to sandwiches, Reuben and patty melt were very nice and with a LARGE size portion of coleslaw or fries. The beer was cold and food was hot and delicious! I'll be back.

“Good Food - Better Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

The food was very good, the portions good. I had the lake perch sandwich; my wife the homemade chicken noodle soup. We would order both again. After two long days of shopping and fighting cold, windy weather we were ready for a good meal and good service. We got both. Every staff member looked after our table, without being obtrusive. The couple we were with the had wild boar, crab, clam, clam, and crayfish gumbo over noodles. They reported that it was very good.

“Don't judge a book by its cover”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

Located in Birch Run, the place does not look like much from the outside. But don't be fooled, the food and service is great! This was our 2nd visit and I again ordered the fried perch platter and it was superb! My wife had the gator gumbo and the crab stuffed mushrooms and she raved about both. A bonus for us was the 50's and 60's soundtrack playing in this restaurant. Give it a try and you will not be disappointed.
