Place is great, staff was excellent! Tried the burger is was great, wife had coconut shrimp she loved them. The waitress was super friendly, unlike TJs sports bar and grill this place actually accommodates out of Towners!

We went away for our Anniversary and had dinner here. My wife got the fried chicken and it was delicious! This is a wonderful supper club with great food, friendly service and a nice home town atmosphere. We will definitely go back again and again. All of the food was good and they have a really good fish fry which... More

May have new ownership, but this place needs more work to improve and get it right. Service was extremely slow, the atmosphere is still as dated as ever, the food was below average. Veggies were waterlogged, our fish was over cooked in fryer and chewy. I would pass on this place, especially since better establishments in Coloma only a few... More

At the last minute we decided to go out to eat because we were too tired from a busy day of raking leaves to cook. Then there was matter of finding something close enough, because we really didn't want to have to drive for thirty minutes or more to find a place that would have something to please everyone... the...

My husband is from Michigan, so every time we are around the area we have to find a place that has perch! This place has been in our radar for a couple of years. Their perch is off the chain! So good and crisp. The servers are so friendly. It's just like coming home. The prices over all are great.... More

Not sure they want people there after 9pm. Went there with another couple on Saturday night and felt that we were holding the workers up from closing.....and it was 8:45😳 Used to come here and old owners never made you feel uncomfortable.

You have to try the Mac and cheese! Omg sooooo good. Southern fried chicken was also a big hit with our dinner party of 10. It nice to see they are adding new things to the menu and also keeping a lot of the old favorites

This place loves everything Chicago and the Board of Trade makes sense. Very little atmosphere, but not many places to choose.. So it's best in class. It's a dive, but the locals don't care. We had ribs. The meat fell off the bone and sauce was okay. Limited draft beers and the locals drink mostly bottled. Homemade pies - crust... More

My husband and I were taken out to eat here by some friends... It was wonderful! Pork chops were huge and literally 'fall off the bone' tender. The shrimp was also very good, along with the ribs, which were falling off the bone as well. Also, great coffee. And although we didn't save room for dessert, it looked very appealing!... More
