Don't go here if you can avoid it. I've visited this locale twice and both times my experience was horrible.

My sister and I wandered into this homey little restaurant on a whim, it was amazing! Giant omelets that we could only half finish, but they were superb. Thick, homemade cinnamon raisin toast was to die for, and the waitstaff were friendly and considerate. This place is a find for a leisurely breakfast, and the whole town is adorable.

My first visit yesterday. I was greeted at the door and promptly sat. My waitress was Stacey and she was efficient, very friendly, informative, and gave great service. My meal was very good. The restaurant seemed to be frequented by locals. The waitress greeted many by their names and they knew hers. Pleasant atmosphere.

I write this only as a warning to poor tourists everywhere. I have a feeling they have good breakfasts which leads to the good reviews... this review is for dinner. I don't like to leave bad reviews like this and if this didn't have such high ratings, I wouldn't have cared, but I feel we were bamboozled into spending a... More

We just stumbled across this gem when we first came into town. It reminded me of a restaurant from the 70s. The food was excellent.

Visiting from out of town. Very unassuming, but very good breakfast in a place that probably hasn't ever been remodeled! The food makes up for it!

Hubby and I stopped here for lunch on our way to Sleeping Bear Dunes. I had the hot meatloaf sandwich. Hubby had a bacon cheeseburger with a trip to the salad bar. He said everything on the salad bar was fresh. Food was delicious and staff was friendly. We would definitely return.

I was staying in Ludington at the Blue Spruce Inn. Muriel was in the office, got me all checked in and then told me about maybe getting supper at Old Hamlin. I took her suggestion, and am glad I did. It was a fun and oh so yummy experience. The waitress was very nice, my order was brought quite fast,... More

Have actually been to Old Hamlin several times for their Friday fish fry. Always very good. Go for the perch. Lightly breaded, was hot and tasty. My most recent visit was during Oktoberfest and came to town for second year running. Was with a friend and we asked about the chili walk on Saturday and where we might find a... More
