We "always" have to stop here whenever we are anywhere near. Seems like no matter what we order, it's good. The chili this time was delicious as was hubs' house steak. We enjoy the rustic flavor and hometown feel. A must-stop!

We stopped here while biking on the sleeping bear dunes trail. It was about 4 miles from the dune climb parking area. I'm not sure I would return. My chili was served cold and I had to send it back. My burger was fair, and didn't stand out. My daughter didn't care for the mac n cheese bites. We were... More

We visited after hiking and they don't disappoint. My kid had about 20 pounds of fish and the chili is really good. The beer is cold, too!

It's a popular tourist spot. Burgers are good, but not great. In general, the food is a little above average. Service was good. They have a $18.00 burrito.

Great for a casual meal any time of day, or year for that matter. Nice friendly staff and pretty good food, as well as quick take out when they aren't busy with summer traffic. Sit at the bar, a table, or outside when the weather is accommodating. Recommend Crystal as a server or Lexi at the bar! Great service and... More

We came here just to have some drinks at the bar for St. Patrick's Day. I had a rum Chatta and root beer and the bartender offered a special with Baileys and Creme de Menthe. They were very good and he was very friendly and helpful.

Went for a late lunch and ordered fish an chips and a bowl of Chowder. It's 11pm and I'm still full! Very generous servings and the Chowder was some of the best I've ever had.

Things started out shaky, but improved as the night went on. The restaurant had a decent three piece band playing when we arrived. The hostess decided to seat us directly in front of the musicians. (It would have made it impossible for us seniors to hear each other.) When I politely requested a seat further away, she shot me a... More

Every time we go, usually after biking the Heritage Trail from Sleeping Bear Dunes, the food is consistently terrific
