Decided to stop by after looking at lake properties. Sunday afternoon, not at all busy, able to get our pick of seats. Cozy, inviting restaurant, food hot and fresh, good portion sizes, friendly wait staff. Definitely will be back!

This is a so called neighborhood place. Here in the U.P. there are limited neighborhoods, we are spread out. They have special every night. They have buffets on special occasions. The food is so-so, nothing exceptional. More a bar.

We stopped here for dinner on our way back to Houghton from Copper Harbor. The whitefish basket was fantastic. The bartender was friendly as well as the locals that we visited with at the bar. If you're looking for a good fish dinner in the U.P. stop here!!

Love the Friday night fish special. A local place that offers very good food at very reasonable prices. The staff is friendly, caring and make you feel welcome. Leave the 'city' attitude at the door and enjoy a taste of the Upper Peninsula .

We tried this on the suggestion of the motel where we stayed. On our arrival we were greeted by our server, a very nice young lady who patiently answered all our questions, even checking with the chef to be certain. My husband had the broiled lake trout, which was fresh, flavorful, and perfectly grilled. My steak, while not blue, was... More

Stopped by to try the buffet. What a waste. Absolutely terrible. There was some mystery casserole that was dry and tasteless. The meatballs were some mass produced hunk of meat product in some brown sauce. The ribs had no meat. Just fat and bones. I will never stop here again!

The owner pays his employees under the table every time they work and hires people that have no work experience and the food is horrible.

We have eaten here a few times when traveling in the UP. The food is good and fresh even on the buffet. The service is good but a little slow. They welcome both locals and tourists which is nice because it seems most roadhouses cater to one or the other.
