My wife and I happened on to this place when we were traveling through Watersmeet, MI and we just very much enjoyed it. It is a very charming little place and the food was very good but the soup was outstanding. We will be back!!!

Great place to stop when in Watersmeet. Nowadays it's just about the only place in town, but I have been coming here for years when I ATV in the U.P. Very nice staff and the food is always good.

Great place to eat on the ATV trail. The food is homemade. Their breakfasts are wonderful. Worth the stop!

This is an old time dinner in a very small town. The food is good basic Northwoods fare. The decor is clean but worn.

Visited Watersmeet and stayed in the nearby casino. My husband and I stopped in for breakfast and were not disappointed. This is definitely a place where the locals go. Very reasonably priced, excellent pancakes, hash browns, eggs, and biscuits with gravy. We would go again!
