We were charmed by how warm and cozy Russell's looked as we pulled up. The Owner greeted us and gave us a great little table in the "treehouse". That was the highlight. From there everything was downhill. The waitress was surly and not efficient. The...More

Our family of 10 had a late dinner at this quaint bar and grill. They started out by bringing some very tasty hush puppies to snack on while we decided on dinner. We enjoyed everything from wings, fish & chips to a seafood platter. The...More

As locals we have eaten all over MI. This restaurant did not meet our expectations for being #4. Fries tasted like they had been cooked and sitting under a heat lamp for a while. Very limp. Fried flounder tasted fishy and was chewy. Cooked way...More
