“Good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

This place is cool and made me feel back in time. Very cool lightning decor and old bar. They had the best burgers I liked the house burger. Great drinks love the local brews. You need to try dessert the best Germany chocolate cake and apple dumpling.

“Good place for lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

Excellent sandwiches, home made potato chips and fast friendly service. You can't ask for more on a cold winter afternoon. We'll be back the next time we're in the area.

“Cool restaurant with architectural character”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

Stopped here and sat at the bar and had a couple of the beers they brewed. We didn't order any food but the dinners we saw other people eating looked and smelled good. The painting above the bar was cool and the bartender said the painting, woodwork, mirror behind the bar and the other building features all dated back to 1905. Both the Oatmeal Espresso Stout and the June Nipper Apple cider were both good.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

This is definitely the place to go if you're visiting the town. Excellent food and drink. The Apple Dumpling might be best dessert of 2013!

“Great place. Casual & Fancy.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

Great place. Good service. Small cozy. Old. Pure Keweenaw. Clearly a place for locals and repeat diners. Easy street parking right outside. You can have a fancy dinner or just a great burger. Local beers. Sit at the bar for a special experience. George Gipp (Notre Dame fame) worked here. Three people, dinner with two beers; $53 w/o tip.
