Have tried just about every single thing on the menu over the last few years. Always excellent food and great drinks. Excellent special mixed drinks menu. The staff is always courteous and excellent with service. Probably better than any restaurant and certainly any bar we have been to. Also love the Friday night karaoke. We go every Friday!

Waited 30 minutes before anyone came to get out drink orders, the food tasted old and undercooked, they gave us the wrong food and missed half our order. Never coming here again.

Parking is adequate. Lighting outside is OK. Reception was good and friendly. The menu is typical. OK variety. The food was average, not well seasoned. Just average. The service was very good and friendly. The property a bit worn but clean. Good in a pinch.

had dinner here three times recently. Always able to be seated and served right away. Large menu selection that is very reasonably priced. Got so much with the pasta wasn't sure I was going to be able to finish it.

Good little place to grab a meal with the family. Steak and Potato soup was tasty and the Bite Me Back burger was good. No one complained about the food or the atmosphere at our table.

The server was great- very friendly and cheerful. The food was not so great. Had the pan fried walleye with mixed veggies and salad. Fish was bland and veggies were mushy. Not the best meal I ever had. Not going back.

Great food and excellent service. Menu offered items not commonly available at restaurants, such as a buffalo burger.

On a Friday night this place is hopping. We are of the age that prefers the quite of the dining room.The food was bar menu food , and tasty. Nothing unusual on the menu. Once again the volume of food ,resulted in doggy bags,thus increasing the value.

When you come here and find the restaurant gone, just know you weren't missing anything. The food was "meh," the atmosphere even more "blah," the service was the only thing that rose above the worst restaurant experience I've had in Michigan. I mean just the "pretzel bites" were so gross. I can't go on. Don't go here.

We were not as satisfied this time as we have been in the past, just not the same. Our server Brandon was not the most social person we have ever had there. The quality of food does not seem to be the same since we last visited. Not sure if we will go back again. To top it off, when... More
