“Michigan Summer golf vacation”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

We had read about Big Buck Brewery and were looking forward to an enjoyable casual meal. The restaurant is decorated like a hunting lodge, and the serving staff are very friendly and chatty. However, the meal was a disappointment - the food was not memorable in content, but memorable in that it was overcooked, dry, no distinguishing taste and not very hot. Too bad - it was a cool looking place, but disappointing in execution.

“Lackluster and let down”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Stopped here on the way back from the UP. Used to frequent the other location in Rochester years ago. We were completely let down. We stopped after the lunch rush and service was inconsistent. We were given the wrong beer and the waitress was sure she had it right. The bartender had to tell her it was wrong. The food was so-so. One of our meals came with barbecue sauce. When it arrived, the wrong one was one it. We were told after the fact that they were out of the one ordered and they just randomly chose another for the plate. The kids ribs were actually priced at $12! I have never seen a kids' item so outrageously priced and they weren't even that good.

Bottom line - there are way more options in Gaylord. Go eat somewhere else.

Food is good and enjoy the decor and service. Apps are awesome, fresh brewed beer is GREAT, love the beer cheese soup as well.

“Don't waste your time or money”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Service was OK and that was the best part. Food was overpriced as was the beer. Had a much better experience years ago.

“Dinner at Big Buck”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Had dinner there the last night of a golf outing. The beer and liquor served there are all brewed or distilled there, so if you are looking for a Bud Lite, this is not the place for you. Food was tasty, and they did a nice job of accommodating our large group of 12.
