“Good food, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

We've been eating at this restaurant for a number of years when we visit family in Oscoda.
Their food is very good at reasonable prices in a very pleasant atmosphere, overlooking the Au Sable river.

“Great service! Yummy BBQ!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Our server was well educated on the menu and ingredients. He was polite and very helpful. The BBQ brisket was delicious. The smoked whitefish cream cheese spread was amazing! This was a great choice!

“Pretty good.”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

The Au Sable Inn restaurant is nice. It has a unique menu and the food is good. I would not call it anything spectacular but nice and fair priced. I had fresh fish and my husband fried meatloaf. The fried meatloaf was pretty neat and different. We liked it.

“Excellent BBQ, Everything Else Average”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

We dine here several times a month. We really enjoy the genuine pit-smoked items. The BBQ meat loaf dinner is excellent. The BBQ brisket is actually a smoked beef roast, but it is also a very good meal. We haven't tried the ribs that everyone else really enjoys. The reason: we just can't get past that excellent meat loaf! The BBQ meat loaf dinner features a very nice salad with mixed greens, a homemade breadstick, a medley of nicely seasoned mixed vegetables, and a potato of your choice. All this for $9.95.
Now the negatives: The rest of the meals that we have selected off the menu have been below par and very disappointing. The cod (fish) dinner that the waiter convinced us "was authentic Atlantic Cod flown in fresh today to the Oscoda airport" was actually frozen breaded processed fish patties. Thus beware of the wait staff; a rather insincere crew that also doubles as bar staff. Yes, the AuSable Inn has an identity crisis. Is it a sports bar, a pool hall, or a restaurant? The atmosphere is absolutely lousy, the wait staff a little coarse, but the BBQ smoked food choices are excellent and the meal prices are reasonable. So ... we keep returning for the BBQ.
