“Happy Happy Happy!”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We've been here before. This time was even better. It's like stepping back in time a couple of decades or six and experiencing the great food taste and amazing customer service like it used to be. Even the very young man who took our order made it happen - top man at Bessie's.
Now onto the food - HELLO! I got the Chickens Pastie with the gravy....it tastes soooo good! I've had these tasty meat pies in Grayling, but in my humble opinion, Bessie's are truly amazing!
Customers in the place commented that they come here everytime they can....that's an unsolicited testamonial right there

“Oh my!”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

I had the shredded beef pasty with gravy and my son had the chicken pasty! Amazing! The crust was extremely good and the gravy was very tasty! Will definitely return!

“Good Pasties - Get the Gravy”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

We tried pasties in Munising and were not impressed but wanted to get a second opinion so went to Bessie's. These were really good; but get the gravy as it really makes a difference. These are a lot like a meat pie without the pan and do a good job of filling you up. Be sure to read the story about Pasties on the menu. This is not a fancy restaurant just good local food.

“Great food, Great People!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

We arrived just before closing when most people would be very unhappy that you walked in. Immediately sat us and gave us the home town hospitality. The food was great and the conversation was also very informative and fun! This is a great place that has been in the family for a great while, so my daughter and I signed the guest book and bid them farewell! They also helped us find a good local auto mechanic as we had some minor car problems!

“Probably the Best Pastie in St. Iggy”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Bessie's, (still owned by the family of Bessie) is home made pasties at their best. Get em' with gravy and cole slaw for a real treat. They are a little cheaper at other places but not as good in my opinion.
