We heard that the food was awful. I'm here to say, this is a must go place. They have a great variety and our party greatly enjoyed the time we were their. We had vegetarians with us and they have a large selection of good choices. They are a little pricey but they had less cost choices too. The only... More

Going back, we had a great experience. We had eaten there a few years ago and the quality of food and service has not changed. Both are great and I would recommend Carmelita's for lunch or dinner.

We picked this spot because the sign outside indicated that they were serving a new kind of whiskey (it's coming, but was not yet available at the time of our visit). We were seated right away. After being served water, fresh chips and mild salsa, we ordered some Blackrock beer brewed in Marquette, Michigan. The menu has an extensive selection... More

If you are in Calumet I would avoid this place!! The waitress was unfriendly and impatient. We asked for water and extra napkins that we never received. The $22 steaks were tough and gristly and the refried beans were watery and bland. Their signature margaritas were only so-so. The atmosphere was nice, but the lighting was very poor. This place...

The food was very good! The services was good too. The waitress was good about making sure we didn't need anything. Bar service was a little slow but it was busy.

Found the food well prepared, delicious and served quickly. My rare steak was well seasoned and tasty. The veggies were excellent, fries top notch and the garlic cornbread a very pleasant surprise. Staff was very attentive and friendly. They regularly checked on us and didn't miss a beat. Very impressed to have a carafe of water delivered. VERY interested in... More

Went for dinner after a show. As we entered the restaurant, a young lady standing outside having a smoke said "good luck in there, they're busy." We needed more than luck. Promptly seated but waitress went MIA after we ordered chips and salsa. We got another that looked frantic. She promptly told us that the chips we had just ordered... More

My wife and I wanted to try their weekend breakfast offerings. The selection looked good and I thought I would try their take on Eggs Benedict as the adobo hollandaise sounded wonderful. It arrived watery and bland. Hollandaise is supposed to be made with butter and I can only guess this was made with oil or margarine because the consistency... More

Thimble berry was very tasty and interesting. I got the 1/2 chicken 1/2 steak fajitas they were good, very fresh. My bf got the shrimp fajitas, they were good... More
