Fun place to eat, good service, good burger and great french fries. An excellent choice for low cost, good food on the east side of Torch Lake. It is where the locals eat. They even made my wife something that was not on the menu anymore.

Whenever my husband and I are up north we love going here! The staff is great. The menu is very large. They have something for everyone! The food is good, yes it's bar food but down well and consistent.

We came here for a snack one evening. We had soup and mac and cheese wedges. Both were decent, although the wedges were probably frozen. Service was okay but could have been friendlier.

It is a nice small town bar - restaurant. It is clean and staff are friendly-attentive. Large selection of beer/liquor/wine. The pizza was very very good.

Stopped in for lunch mid-week, crowd about half full. Used to enjoy this place but it's going in the wrong direction. Burgers and sandwiches have always been decent bar fare, but less than impressed on last visit and the service was disinterested at best. Our waitress looked like she'd rather be anywhere than taking our order. Still giving it 3... More

Came here with the family while enjoying Torch Lake and saw this was #2 on Alden. Had no trouble getting seated but the wait for food was very long. I think some people would have left if there were other options. Had a burger and wraps and the food was jus ok. Nothing special here just a good location.

We stopped in at Alden Bar & Grille during a heavy rainstorm and were pleasantly surprised by the atmospher, the buffet that was underway, as well as the quality of the food. Service was prompt, efficient and friendly. We shall return.
