Went with a large group, and the fried cod was perfect. The staff was very friendly, and the food came out in a timely manner, considering the size of the crowd. Will definitely visit them again next time I am in Kalkaska.

Stopped by for a bite of lunch on my way back down State. Special of the day was the cod sandwich with potato salad. It was decent, not spectacular, but the service was quick and very friendly. Fairly busy yet staff was efficient and enjoyable
