This place has pretty good pizza but everything else is average. Nice views of the water and fairly fast service.

There is nothing like a pizza from the Ambassador-we usually get italian sausage, mushrooms, and onions. It has the most unique flavor-you just can't stop eating it. It comes sliced in small pieces and is so delicious. The combination of cheese and sauce and the sausage won't be found anywhere else. The ravioli is also excellent. The service was great and everyone is very friendly. Definitely a must stop if you are visiting in Houghton!

The Ambo has fantastic pizza. The BLT and chicken alfredo are two of my favorites, but pretty much every kind is good. They also have a really diverse "fishbowl" menu of alcoholic drinks. Can't beat the atmosphere or the view, either! Can be crowded and crazy on weekend nights.

This old school place is unique with the coolest ceiling/murals ever. Nachos n cheese are awesome, they have big bottles of hefe weizen beer, but the view is the best, then there is the TOSTADA PIZZA!!!! Get extra sauce on side, in freaking credible...oh and don't forget to order a fish bowl drink!!!!

We read so many reviews on the Ambassador we just had to eat there. To be honest I was a bit disappointed. Everyone raved on how great it was and I really just thought it was an average bar to eat at. The food in my opinion was nothing special - your typical bar food. My husband ordered a pizza and liked it but said it wasn't a place that we had to come back to each time we were in Houghton. It is a very popular place - was very busy - so people must like it. But we spent a whole week in the area and tried so many different places and this did not rank on my favorites list. The atmosphere is bar like with tables to sit at - not quiet and was hard at times to even carry on a conversation with the people at our table. Great place to take a group. Service was average. To me this was just an average place to eat at. There was nothing special about the service or food - but there was nothing horrible about it either. To be honest we will be spending a lot of time up in Houghton over the next few years while our children attend MI Tech and we probably won't put this on our list of places to eat at.
