This is a simple place with consistently good food. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I've eaten there many times and never disappointed. I highly recommend. It isn't fancy, and doesn't serve beer or wine, but the food is good.

We both enjoyed our meals, I had breakfast, Hubby had a lunch. Food came out quickly and steaming hot! Server was very efficient.

Went with neighbors and friends for the fish fry on Friday nights,and glad we did! The fish is Cod,like most places,but this place stands out,with its great service,and deep fried golden fillets.Along with it, you get a warm roll,and tossed salad (or cole slaw).I added...the sweet potato fries for a dollar extra. Service was quick,and efficient. This place gets very busy on Friday nights,and when we left at 5:30 PM,there was a small line waiting to be seated. This is the place to go for a moderately priced fish fry ($13..99 all you can eat),and all the locals are there to prove it!More

I had the privilege of trying the Yankee Boy Restaurant. I must say it it was very good. I would recommend if you're in the Kalkaska area, that you stop in. The service was very good. I had the cod basket. The fish was very...good. I really enjoyed the coleslaw that came with it. It seems very hard to find good coleslaw these days.More

This deceiving from the outside is a great stop for Mom and Pop type home cooking. You can’t go wrong with anything on their menu. It’s a very popular local venue, but we’ve met people who include this restaurant on their trips North on vacations...or on the way to cottages. Breakfasts are extremely popular, but honestly, this restaurant is always worth your visit, if you like comfort food.More

First, food was great. Teenage son ordered 3 blueberry pancakes. Great test, but should have ordered 2. I had chicken fried steak breakfast. Gravy was good and steak was a little peppery. Loved it. Services were good and friendly. Definitely a great food stop.
