My husband and I stopped here for a quick lunch. He ordered a fish sandwich and I had a rueben with fries. Mine was delicious... perfect! My husband liked the fish but the bun fell to pieces before it even got to his mouth. We both really enjoyed the fries too. He also ordered the bean soup and they accidentally... More

The service is good. I would recommend this place to others. Overall a good experience, but the food was just average to me.

My son recommended this place as the old person restaurant. As an"old" person compared to a 12 year old, this place has good home cooking, portions are ample. He likes it for the prime rib, a little on the fatty grizzly side, but good. I had the barbecue chicken, which was good. The ribs are better though.

We stopped here on a Friday and I had the AYCE fish and the wife had the beef tenderloin. Because of the price, did not expect what we were served. The tenderloin was excellent and was far more than she could finish. The battered cod was also very good.

We went there on a Sunday morning at about noon. They were so busy!! We received great service though. Food came out quick and hot and our waitress came to our table frequently to make sure we had everything we needed. Will definitely go back.

Soups always homemade, chunky and tasty. Good burrito for an anglo place. Salads are great for a light meal when you don't want to mess up the kitchen ater a long day but don't want huge potions either. Breakfast is crowded. Theres a reason! The senior discount is handy and the servers are polite not overly friendly but attentive and... More

This is a "down home" style place with good traditional dishes. I like the variety and quality of meals here, and have been here many times. Friendly staff and consistent quality.

This has to be one of the best breakfast restaurants in the state! We enjoyed their breakfast for three morning in a row during our trip to Petoskey. The staff was very friendly and the food was great. Would recommend any of the omelets or anything else, just a real nice place. Would definitely be back on our next trip... More

Ate there for dinner. Seated us quickly. Staff was friendly and accommodating for my daughter's food allergies. Wide variety of food. Ordered a tuna melt and fries. Food was good. Portion size was nice. Restaraunt was very, very old and had very, very dated decor. Staff was nice and restroom was clean. If in the area, I would eat there... More
