Enjoyed a wonderful dinner here my first night in town. The place reminds me of an old steakhouse. Food and service were both tremendous. I'll definitely go back.

I grew up in Michigan and walking into The What Not Inn reminded me of taverns and restaurants that my family used to eat at in northern Michigan in my youth. The restaurant looks bigger inside than out. Wood everywhere with square tables and cafeteria...More
