Wow, what a great find. This little place is off the beaten path a bit. But well worth finding it. We had the most awesome service. I apparently messed up by not ordering the broasted chicken. We later talked to others who go there a...More

It was a nice quiet meal. The waiter was attentive and the food was good as usual. The atmosphere is eclectic and comfortable. No rushing here if you want to take your time and relax. Casual.

You could spend all new night checking out the decorations at this bar! Had a great late night visit there with friends. Reasonable prices and fried apps to make your mouth water.

We've been to this out of the way bar a few times this summer. It's actually the oldest operating bar in Manistee so the décor is very interesting. I had the grilled salmon dinner each time as it's awesome. We enjoy playing Club KENO too....More

Even though we are quite familiar with Manistee, we had never heard of this place. Chicken was delicious, although it took a long time. We heard the waiter explain that they don't have enough room in the pressure cookers when they get busy. The salmon...More

The Painted Lady is located in Manistee, MI it is the oldest operating saloon in town. The bar and tin ceiling are original from when it was built back in the late 1880's. When Bob and Linda Venne bought the building in 1994 they turned it into The Painted Lady Saloon which is now well known for their broasted chicken and award winning home-made soup. They offer breakfast, lunch and dinner plus a full bar from open to close. With a wide variety of food to choose from it's the perfect stop for a good meal and a little bit of history.
