We arrived at noon and found a comfortable table in a corner. This place has some great ambiance. We both ordered the fried fish sandwich and I also had a bowl of chili, which was excellent. The fish sandwiches were AWESOME, but my wife couldn't eat hers because she discovered the skin and got all freaked out. This was one... More

You have to love these little out-of-the-way stops off the beaten path that surprise you with their service, food and warmth. Just good, straight forward American fare at a reasonable price and served with a friendly smile. On this lunch stop we enjoyed a hot ham sandwich, fries, egg salad sandwich and Coke. Nothing unexpected, but very fulfilling. And all... More

Saw this place as we were driving by and stopped in. You have to write your name on a board before being seated with the amount in your party. We had a small table to seat 4, but we came in for appetizers and beer. They had great chili-chili almost texture of chili for chili dogs. Very tasty. Hubby had... More

This place is nothing great on the outside and inside looks like a typical bar, but the food is awesome! Served fresh and hot! Delicious broasted whitefish and chicken. Highly recommend!

This was our second time here and they do not disappoint! The whitefish is always done perfectly! My husband had a steak and he said it was grilled perfect as well. We went with another couple and they thoroughly enjoyed their meals. They have a couple local craft beers on tap. The service is always good and the food hot!... More

Friendly "neighborhood" Tavern in a rural setting. Although it is often busy during the summer a recent trip in mid-September was pleasantly uncrowded. The service was friendly & efficient. The menu is varied pub grub with great fried chicken, steak & burgers. Definitely worth a stop if you are in the "neighborhood" between Leland & Northport in Leelanau County.

Wow this has always been a favorite for a great burger. It was quite a suprise when the burgers turned out to be very average this time. The meat did not stand out. The buns tasted diffrent, not good diffrent. Plus the onions which are usually great were ehh. The waitress also seemed very impatient even though they were slow... More

We enjoyed a great lunch and birthday celebration for a friend. There was a variety of food to meet all dietary needs. There were 15 of us and we were accommodated with a private room off the main dining room. The interesting decor aided in discussion and laughter. Our food came promptly and was delicious.

This is a much-looked-forward-to stop each year while vacationing. The service is very friendly and small-towny. :) We have the same thing each year, so it's tough to review a lot of the different menu items. The ground round burger with blue cheese is great - cooked perfectly. I love the fried cauliflower and they make a special sauce that... More
