Wanted to have the Friday perch special so we,stopped,on this week. Service was good, food was quick to arrive and both portion size and prices were fair. At one point we were the only four customers there on a Friday evening. Place is quite small...More

Not very large inside but always great food and wonderful service. Friday nights are perch night and they are awesome. Very moderate prices and good selection.

This is not a very good place. They won't cook the hash browns beyond limp and white and then claim that there is no way to cook them more. The customer is not king here, in fact they treat you like an annoyance. I've tried...More

My wife and I stopped at Tootsies with a friend, and, for the most part, it was pretty darn good. The service was spot-on, the food was good, and the prices are reasonable. It gets a little crowded (when we left people were waiting out...More

this is a modest establishment with very little ambience. But if you are in the market for a good, hearty breakfast and free coffee, you will be satisfied. It is a good value.

I'd say that the wait staff gets a B for service, and the kitchen gets a C for quality. Breakfast needs to be served hot, and the restaurant isn't big enough to explain away luke warm eggs, corned beef hash, and pancakes. I will give...More

During my annual vacation to Muskegon, my niece informed me that Tootsie's Diner had purchased the recipe for making the old Doo Drop Inn's perch & onion rings. The perch is only served on Friday from 3pm - 7pm. We had 10 in our group...More

This is a fantastic place for breakfast and lunch. Tootsie's was just voted one of the top ten breakfast restaurants in Michigan. Neat atmosphere and super service. Most of all really yummy "home-cooked" food.
