Definitely our favorite place to eat when we are in Alpena. The menu has something for everyone, and the food quality and preparation is top notch. Waitstaff and owners are very welcoming, treat you like family, and do everything they can to make sure your that your dining experience is enjoyable.

wait times and system not organized at all. Once you have been sat...its great. The wait and chaos at the front is nuts. Food is great

We enjoyed the Chicken Bianca pizza with a glass of Pinot Grigio. Our pizza was loaded with lots of delicious goodness, like house made Bianca sauce, mozzarella cheese, a generous amount of grilled chicken, smokey bacon, spinach, onion, and the crust was perfect, as was the ambiance and the service! We will be back the next time we are in... More

Interesting unique decor, very good atmosphere. Prices are a little higher than mid-range. Great variety of foods offered. Nice steak choices, with tasty tender prime rib. The brochette is good, with large portion. All portions are a nice size. Wait staff and management are friendly and care about customer satisfaction.

Besides having the best service staffing, this place is awesome from beginning to ending of the experience. Our waitress was the best. It was my sons birthday and she really made him feel special. The food was delicious and well presented. There were four in our party and all ordered different items. Each of them were phenomenal. The steaks were... More

This is probably the most expensive restaurant in Alpena. I have eaten at restaurants that were on the same price level and they were much better. The food was good but nothing was outstanding. The wild boar special was good but not worth what we paid for it. The atmosphere and décor are nice and service was great. One day... More
