“Awesome Breakfast”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

On our trip to the Upper Peninsula a few years ago, we found this gem of a restaurant. We stop every year (twice -- on way up and back to Illinois) for breakfast. Service has been good. The food has been outstanding. We look forward to going back each year :) Can't wait to stop there again this year :)

“Not Love At First Sight but.......Potential”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

If your looking for a very laid back environment .......and are in the mood to put the feed bag on ....listening to the locals ...this is your place .....people are friendly the place is clean! Portions are huge ......you might want to share or have leftovers for several meals.

I do recommend the beef barley soup....it was delicious and satisfying on a cold rainy day in the Northwoods.

“Friendship "FOREVER" House”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

Let me just say WOW!! the Friendship house has a huge menu to choose from. It took me about 15 minutes to decide. Service was great the pancakes were just dripping with syrup which really tickled my taste buds. I have been here plenty of times, and every time i come here with the same open minded approach when choosing my meal. I'm going to end with a quote that i love..... "Never judge a book by a weird restaurant name"
