“Not Ready For Prime Time Carryout....”
Review of The Bib - CLOSED

The Bib
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 28, 2013

The Bib is actually a great little place on Patterson Rd near Gun Lake. We especially like the Chicken Fajita Pizza and a few other menu items plus the decor creates sort of a funky Key West meets Pure Michigan vibe that can be fun for a quick meal. The patio is small but nice as well for outdoor seating.

The problem seems to be not enough staff or staff not well managed. On more than one occasion this summer we've ordered pizza or sandwiches for carryout and the promised "ready in twenty five minutes" turns into over an hour. The food is still good and good value...just be warned. If they say it will be ready in 25 minutes, ask them if they mean it and don't plan on eating anytime soon. I hope they fix the problem!

You wouldn't expect to find seafood and pizza in the same place but that's what they had. We had fresh lake perch on our last visit and it was delicious

Our experience at The BIB was not very good and I do not recommend this restaurant.

We dined at The BIB restaurant on a Saturday night and called ahead for reservations. They had a table waiting and we were seated right away. Unfortunately, this is the only thing that went well while we were there.

We ordered an appetizer and then our entrees. It took over an hour for the appetizer to make it's way to our table. We were watching all the other tables around us get their food and kept asking our server what the problem was. She kept saying the kitchen was backed up and then the reason was that they made our appetizer but it went to another table - so they had to make it again. Our appetizer was breadsticks....so not to complicated to make another batch quickly but for some reason it did. We asked our server multiple times to check on our food to see when it was coming out - and was told that it was in the queue to be made - but the kitchen was "backed up".

Our entrees came over an hour and a half after we first sat down. The french fries on my plate were cold, the chicken on another plate was cold too. We finally got the manager to our table. We explained that we had been waiting an hour and a half for our food and when it finally came, it was cold. He never apologized for the delay or the cold food - just said "I get you new food" and left quickly. We did finally get hot food and it was mediocre at best.

Bad experience, bad service and mediocre food - don't eat here. There are plenty of other restaurants in the area that will value your patronage more than The BIB.

We took the kids out for dinner after Mass on a Saturday night. The food, as always, was wonderful, the staff friendly and helpful and the owner there working and talking with the customers. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Visited The Bib while staying at the Baypoint Hotel for my Wedding Anniversary. Great food, large selection, pleasant atmosphere, quick and curtious service.
