“Great Food-Excellent People-Ideal Location”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

The title about says it all. We've been stopping at Rosy's Diner for many a long year now, and have Never Once been disappointed. The staff is friendly, efficient and always on top of everything. Rosy, herself, is behind the counter at the grill and all you need to do is tell her what you want and how you want your dinner and that's Exactly what you'll get! She Knows how to cook and how to run a great little diner! Located right downtown, Rosy's is a virtual landmark. Good prices-great portions and Excellent food-all served by genuinely friendly and Nice people! What more can you ask for? Whenever we're in town, we're Always sure to catch lunch at Rosy's! Rosy's is just your Good Old Fashioned little hometown diner- the kind you remember when you were a kid! It's That good!

“KNM @ Rosy's”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Rosy's Dinner is a nice place to go for breakfast or lunch, if your hoping for dinner you're SOL, they close early. However, the food there is really good. You can watch Rosy make it too, the grill is just behind the counter, and they have a good selection of diet sodas. Rosy often throws around some attitude, but don't worry it's all in good fun.

“Great Soup!”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Hesitated to go in as there was no one in the restaurant - but we were pleasantly surprised - good food, interesting atmosphere (from the 40's- 50's) and the staff were quick and friendly - will definitely go again!

“Its Exactly What You Would Expect”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Think about going into a small town in the Michigan Upper Peninsula. You find a small local diner named after the owner. What would you expect? Yup. Exactly like that. I had breakfast at the counter and watched the exchanges between the owner and the locals with great amusement. Yes, deer camp was mentioned. The food was good (standard breakfast stuff) and I'll go back if I'm ever up that way again. If you mention you're from out of town she might ask you to sign the guest book!
