“Bad Service, OK food, Locals only”

Sportsman's Bar and Restaurant
Ranked #5 of 25 Restaurants in Newaygo
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We ended up in Newaygo on a Sunday, this place was opened on a mostly closed up main street so we thought we'd give it a try. The service was some of the worst. We walked in and were told " have a seat we'll get to you when we have a chance". The place was not overly crowded, and two couples came in after us, were seated and served drinks before they even took our drink order. The waitress was apologetic, but she seemed to think that if she kept apologizing it somehow excused her inattention and serving the locals first. The food was good, I had the smokehouse pasta, which was pretty awesome. My buddy had a burger. The portion size was good, we were both full. But the service and poor attitude of both the waitress and bar tender over-shadowed the entire experience. They had a locals only vibe and we definitely took the hint, won't spend my money there again.

Great choices on the menu plus daily specials. I had grilled trout with a butter pecan sauce (not sweet) Prices were very reasonable for the quality. Drinks were good. Would love to go back and try other items on the menu. The place was full at dinner time.

We've eaten here several times and I always get a burger! Great service, nice atmosphere, and a great view of Croton Pond...It's also a wonderful place to hang out during the annual ice fishing contest.

This place just consistantly has great food and great service and great beer. Local bar/restaurant. Friendly service! Hunting themed. Always a good special on the board. You would be amiss if you went through Newaygo and didn't try this place.

Really enjoyed our lunch at The Sportsman's Bar and Restaurant. The atmosphere was "up north". Our waitress was helpful, really friendly and made some great suggestions. The food was good and a real value.
