Could not get a reasonable answer on whether they had anything they could Cook without soy.Waitress acted very rude just because we asked.She said they had no butter anywhere to cook an egg with.When we decided to leave we had to wait 10 minutes for drink check as waitress kept ignoring us.Finally another waitress got it for us. NEVER AGAIN

afm1506 Sorry for the confusion with regard to your soy issue but asking three employees the same question hoping for the answer you wanted to hear was very confusing! Believe it or not we do have a system in the dining room, that rude waitress took the time to inquire about your concerns even though your party was not in... More

The step inn is by far the best breakfast in northern Michigan! The Main Streeter I'd highly recommend any time I come back home I always come back here! Better than IHOP

The Step Inn is the typical hometown restaurant where the locals go for good food, good service and good company at reasonable prices. Besides breakfast, the menu also includes many lunch and dinner selections, I've only had breakfast, but have never had a bad meal.

I love a restaurant that's consistent and Step Inn is that kind of place. The staff has been there for a while (and obviously the cooks) and nothing is a surprise (yea!!!) On this visit I had the Irish Skillet. Two eggs, corn beef hash, hash browns...and I'm not even sure what else. I'll I know is that I ate... More

My wife and I have been dining here every summer for over 10 years. Not only do they have the best food and prices in the Cheboygan area, but they have a wonderful staff. Do yourself a favor and try this wonderful restaurant next time your in Cheboygan, Michigan. You won't regret it.

Stopped in for breakfast, greeted and sat right away. Small, outdated restaurant but we weren't looking for anything fancy. Ordered a combo meal and everything came out quickly and correct and portions were very big. On the cheaper side for price as well. Would come back again.
