Had the chicken salad wrap with sweet potato fries and it was excellent. This place is beautiful and well worth a visit if you're in the area. They had some great specials with reasonable prices. They were really busy but still provided fast, friendly service.

Everything here is delicious. I love the Pulled Pork with Asian Slaw and we all love the Rueben Balls. Full bar and specials everyday. Outdoor seating available. Don't miss this place.

Thank you so much. The pulled Pork sandwich is one of our most popular sandwiches along with the Reuben balls of course. Next time your in at our place you will have to try our Buffalo Chicken balls!

We have quite a few of our business meetings here (and my family dines here often, too!) ~ the staff always accommodates us and is friendly. We have folks in our office with special dietary needs and the Sturgeon ALWAYS cooperates and helps us out!...More

This little gem is perfectly nestled in the Sturgeon River Valley right off the main road running from Indian River, to Wolverine (US27). Whether you are snowmobiling one of northern Michigan's vast trail networks, or out for a weekend drive, or enjoying a fun filled trip down an exciting river you absolutely must STOP, relax and refuel your belly!! We have an up north decor, including log walls. We are known for our Reuben balls & Schmeer Appetizer. You can also enjoy Finger Food, Sandwiches to Wrap, Salads, and Pizzas. Save room for dessert we have an amazing banana bread pudding.
