“Uninspired cuisine on mulitiple levels”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

Uninspired cuisine. Typical heat and serve. For instance, lettuce is head only, no leafy in sight, garlic toast was some generic commercial bread like wonder bread smeared with margarine and covered in garlic powder then burned in the broiler. Next, baked potatoe came with a large scoop of you guessed it, margarine. Perch dinner, frozen not fresh, overly dusted , and overcooked. Free seconds? Umm, no thanks. Ok, restaurant is fairly clean, as some other objective reviewer notes "the Silverware was clean" one sip of the margarita was all I could manage. A syrupy sweet potion that resembled jello and corn syrup. So if you, like me are looking for food that makes you go wow, this is not your place. If you are in the area and need something to get by til the next great meal, go ahead. It probably won't make you ill. Service is great for those that need that criteria. The other reviews I read before going seemed highly vague, offering no definition as to what item they enjoyed, which resulted in my wasting a saturday evening dining event..

“Home cooking, great place to eat.”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

This restaurant is located in the town of Chesaning. They have excellent service and a good selection on their menu. We have never had a "bad meal". Everything is excellent from breakfast to salads, burgers and dinner entrees. Prices are reasonable also. I would highly recommend this as a place to eat.
