This past weekend our group went there for some food and drinks. After being there for a couple hours and spending well over $200 bucks my friend and I had to run out to our car, literally gone 5 minutes tops & when we came back in they charged us $10 to get back in. Even though our spouses and coats were still at our table. Their food was terrible and over priced. We were charged $10 for a tiny paper plate of disgusting chili cheese fries, while their employees would be right next to us with a huge delicious looking plate of chili cheese fries. Hamburger was cold. Like straight out of the refrigerator cold. Service sucked...there was literally enough beer cans on our table to make a pyramid, which we did thinking maybe they'll finally come clean the emptys up. Nope didn't work. The employees were constantly in the smoking cage, I'm talking 3-4 in there at a time. Ridiculous.

We decided to come for lunch after checking out of our hotel yesterday. We had a goup of 9 includeing 3 childern. It wasnt busy, but the food took way to long to get to our table. I didnt care for the taco salad. I think 4 others got the New York styly Rueben and they enjoyed them. One other person got the rodeo buger and liked hers. The kids go marshmellows with there lunch so they all thought that was fun. They brought out the kids food last though so that made it fun because they were very hungery. We also go the onion ring appitizer and they were good and the .50 cent wings were good to. Overall it was ok. I dont understand why it took so long to get out food though when most of us had sandwichs and a salad. They did have games and stuffed animals the wall that entertained the kids briefly.
Also keep in mind that there is NO changing station in the woman's batheroom. It was a pain to lay my son on the floor to change him! and cold.

Mae was our server, she couldn't have been better. Attentive, friendly, and capable. We all are meat from the grill. The steaks were great. They came a little overcooked, but tasty.

This is a fun simple place with a lively atmosphere. Not fine dining, just enjoyable.

Didn't know what to expect. It was a cold, rainy and blusterty day on Higgins lake. We were the only ones there for a while but gradually more customers came in. There is a big gas grill available to cook your own food on after 5:30 pm so that's what we chose to do. The chef came out and visited with us while we did and we generally had a good time. Good was pretty good service was very good. I understand its a pretty popular place especially during the summer.

We are regulars at the Limberlost. They have your typical bar fare. Good hamburgers. Try their onion rings appetizer - YUM! Nice outdoor seating in the summer. Their service could be improved. Nice beer and liquor selection. We stay away from this place during Bud Bash weekend, it is a younger crowd....lol
