Great burgers, great nachos. March Madness. What could be better? Very attentive wait staff. Asked to have the tv close to us changed to a different channel. Waitress was happy to accommodate us and immediately followed up. Food was delivered hot, prepared as requested, great tastes.

We visited the restaurant this year with Elk Rapids natives, who took us on their prime rib night. It's not advertised and they have a limited amount, so we got there early and were able to take advantage of it. Absolutely wonderful, cooked to perfection and served with huge rolls, a nice salad and big, super hot baked potato. Their... More

Have been to this tavern twice now. Booths are very tight. Large bar. Right on Main Street. Very appropriate bar menu. Moderately priced. Greek menu items. So far been very happy.

Have gone to T.Club, many times, and have never had a problem. Service is always right on, as well as the food. Folks it's a family bar, kid friendly, well above average food. The burgers and very good, and the gyro, my fave. Nice people and a great old shuffle board game.

The obligatory greasy spoon joint. Every small town has one. This one has mostly fried food which is ok. The interior is nicely done....surprisingly light and comfortable. If you want your hamburger to be edible order it raw and it'll come medium rare!

I originally came here as a visitor for Summer fun and Winter skiing, but have become a local and year round fan! The staff is as friendly and helpful as can be, and I have even helped them greet visitors and make them comfortable during busy times! The food is great, especially the gyros and the burgers made FRESH, not... More

We stopped for drinks after a long sail across the bay. This was the only bar we found open, and we are glad to have discovered it. Not special, but a little quirky in a fun way. We also tried the food; the gyros were especially good. Grilled the gyro meat better than most places, even better than some "gyros... More

I guess Memorial Day was crowded because they were out of chips. Club sandwich was good, crispy bacon but crispy bread as well. Not as big and scrumptious as we remember in the past. Nachos served on a paper plate and a bunch of cheese stuck to the plate, didn't seem like enough meat either. Friendly service and plenty of... More
