Plenty of parking, always crowded, food is excellent, but on the rationed serving side. Waitresses are very friendly and receptive. Don't ask for cherries with your coke, as they are tainted with pickling brine (yuk). The prime rib is especially good, Always on Special, but costly. There soups are terrific. Bathrooms are clean. They have an outside seating area during... More

This place is also a convenience store (around back), gas station, RV storage, and RV Waste pumping / disposal. Really easy to move around the business compared to a lot of gas stations, even for rural locations. Some are still tight. Convenience store is of good size and offers most of the things you need in a pinch.

Food is always good with a good selection. Great hours. Clean and modern setting. Great service with local hospitality. We have eaten here a half dozen times and has become one of our favorites because of its convenience.

Good comfort food. Steak, chicken, ribs, and burgers. Homemade mashed potatoes. Fried pickles and other great starters. Had a great experience. Wonderful staff. Samantha especially. Samantha was our friendly, welcoming waitress. She was very attentive and very helpful in helping us navigate the menu, being our first time here. We had the Monterey chicken and the sizzler steak. Both great.... More

I had the smelt - big plate, decent tasting, breading a bit thick. Perch was good, same breading problem. Decent drinks, decent fries. I'd eat here again (what are your choices?)

Had the perch dinner at this place. Very big restaurant and the service moves fast if you want it too. Really enjoyed the perch. Would not get the smashed potatoes again....not a lot of flavor and they did not come with gravy. My husband did enjoy his baked potato.

We're on a 15 day road trip and this is the best meal we've had! We both ordered steaks and they were delicious! Very reasonable prices and friendly staff. I would highly recommend eating here!

This is a really good family style restaurant. I have never had anything but great food here. Be sure and try the "stack of onion rings". They are really good.

We went here for dinner and we ordered the 8oz sirloin steak for my husband, I got the perch lite and my son got the country beef melt sandwich. It was yummy!

The staff is super friendly here. Great family spot. They even have small toys and activities for the littles. My kids love it here. Nothing fancy, just great food in a comfortable setting. We go several times a year. You could easily go after hitting the dunes. We have even snowmobiled here. It's on top of a gas station and... More
