“Basic menu, stay somewhere else”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

This place has been here since the start of Grand Bend. Maybe 50 years ago it was good. Many folks that love the place are more nostalgic than realistic. Make up your mind if you would stay here based on the reviews - don't. Do yourself a big favor and stay somewhere else.

Folks that come here for the food like basic, home cooked style dinners. They are good at that. In fact, their liver and onions is awesome or, ribs!

“NEVER STAYING HERE AGAIN ! ! !”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

We got two rooms for our family. Adults room had a updated bathroom but that was it. Poor water pressure ( I mean what water pressure ) and lack of hot water. I ended up having a ten minute shower ( 6 in warm water and 4 in cold water). Air conditioning was lacking to the point that I opened the window and it was slightly cooler outside. Could not contact staff as they close up shop at 9ish. Did not fall asleep till 1:15 am because it was too HOT in the room. In the morning complained to management. They accnowledge the the AC had been altered. Said the plumber installed a water saver in the shower head. Offered our family Breakfast in lieu of their mistake. After breakfast found mini ants in our daughters room coming from behind paneling. AVOID , AVOID , AVOID !!!

Reviewed July 28, 2013

The food was horrible. My husband ordered pasta, which was a big mistake. Even the lemonade was bad.

“Worst birthday dinner in years”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Not worthy of review, don't go. We made the mistake of wasting 300 dollars for 12 ppl for dinner, if you want to have a nice family meal do not go here. The staff was not friendly, if you work at a family restaurant, you should like kids!
