Description: The Painted Lady is located in Manistee, MI it is the oldest operating saloon in town. The bar and tin ceiling are original from when it was built back in the late 1880's. When Bob and Linda Venne bought the building in 1994 they turned it into The Painted Lady Saloon which is now well known for their broasted chicken and award winning home-made soup. They offer breakfast, lunch and dinner plus a full bar from open to close. With a wide variety of food to choose from it's the perfect stop for a good meal and a little bit of history.

The place has character and excellent food! Highly recommended. The broasted chicken was so worth the diversion from our destination.

Friends took us here for dinner. Like the other reviews.....we had the broasted chicken and broasted potatoes. It was served with a small bowl of coleslaw and biscuit. It came very hot and was very tasty. We all had the chicken and no one complained.

As a resident of this area, I know this quaint neighborhood bar has been there forever. Back in my younger days, it was called "Russo's" This was our first time there as "Painted Lady" and we truly enjoyed the experience. Has all the charm of yesteryear and great food. Three of us had the broasted chicken and one had the prime rib. We were all very pleased. My husband even liked the size of the table! Had plenty of room for 4 people to spread out. We will certainly return often.

This is my second visit to The Painted Lady in Manistee. As the title exclaims, this was the best chicken dinner I've ever had. This may be a blue-collar bar/restaurant, but I'll take it with the excellent food anyday over other places with crazy prices and lousy food.

Thanks for the great food and service!
