I didn't want to cuss, so I gave a misspelled word for Wounded Minnow :) Kyle Belew serves the best Water, No Ice, and a Lime in all of Michigan. If you're good to him, he may even squeeze it himself!

We stop here every time we get a chance. This time we had the privilege of being served by Brittany. She did an outstanding job and was as pleasant as could be. The food was great and we had a really nice dinner.

It was ok. My food was hot, my friends was cold. Nothing great to say nothing bad to say. Basic dive bar and people watching.

Never had a bad meal here. The wait staff is efficient and courteous and the menu selection is nice. Local owner and really makes sure his customers are happy! I highly recommend the Wounded Minnow Saloon.

I had the salad bar and salmon, my husband had a burger. Dinner was just ok. I had enough leftovers to eat the next day. Liked the atmosphere. Service was prompt. We would eat there again.

We eat at the Wounded Minnow Saloon at least one time per week. We always enjoy the food and drinks. I recommend trying the burgers or one of the weekly or monthly specials. They offer great drink specials on Tuesday and Wednesday.

My sister went here and got sick from the food. Her husband did as well. I see now they are shut down- their license has been suspended again. I think this is like the third or fourth time.

Very nice Pub and popular but easy to find a seat. Fresh salad bar, excellent appetizers -we enjoyed extreme nachos appetizer and asked to omit olives and order came as requested. Should've stopped eating but our eyes were bigger than our stomach and my grilled...More

We live in Dowagiac. We want to like the Wounded Minnow. But this place has the worst service ever, year after year. Slow to non-existent. The last time we were here, after 45 minutes of waiting for a small order, the waitress admitted that she...More
