I've been a couple times here and the food is always very good and the service very friendly. They have done a good job being consistent in food quality and good service across other locations. I visited other 2 locations and have the same good perception about this chain.

Good dinners. A wide variety of choices for dinner. I had the perch. Prices are up there but worth it. For atmosphere, ask for the fireplace room.

I have been to this location a few times since it is very close to my work and it never fails to disappoint! Usually understaffed and inattentive and this visit was no different. Poorly prepared soup and clearly frozen fish mangled and dusted with 1960's paprika accompanied by undercooked rice from a box! I am amazed that after doing the... More

We really like the Kruse and Muer and Rochester MI and thought this would be similar. Unfortunately not. Staff was very friendly, food was good but the atmosphere left something to be desired.

OMG! The food was so delicious, their are no words! It is our restaurant of celebration, birthdays, anniversaries etc. Topped off with a magnificent dessert of a Sanders Hot Fudge Cream Puff!

One of the few decent places in Lake Orion for dinner. Their pizza is really good too, pricey, but worth it. The dining room can get loud. The food is generally always good.

This resturant is way too pricey for a "roadhouse". At one time it was fun, reasonable, and yummy. Now that it's a roadhouse, it's pricey, and for a $20.00 meal, you have to pay extra for a salad. Ashame they wrecked a good resturant!

I love this restaurant. My favorite food to order is the Chicken George, which is no longer on the menu but still available, and their house salad with cherries instead of walnuts. It is one of my favorite meals. The staff has always been friendly and the wait time usually isn't terrible as long as you expected that your food's... More

I've been going to Kruse Muers since the first restaurant opened in Rochester about 1988 I have done them the standard that I judge all other restaurants on because of the quality of food and service combined with a great atmosphere. I have noticed though that the absolutely wonderful bread that they serve has been slowly becoming skimpier and thinner.
