Every time we go here, it's a long wait, even though there a ton of empty tables.

The worst thing is... More

We dined during happy hour (3-6 pm Monday - Friday). Between the two of us, we enjoyed five mixed drinks, two apps, and two main courses. Grand total? $40!! The most outstanding aspect of this restaurant had to be the service. The serving staff was unbelievable - efficient, friendly, and helpful. We had the calamari app (excellent) and the pulled...

This is a fun place to go and in the cold the fire place is so inviting. The servers are friendly and prompt. They have a happy hour that should be checked out.

We had dinner and breakfast at this hotel while we were staying at the Doubletree in Port Huron, in which this restaurant is housed. Our meals for dinner were excellent and the prices were quite reasonable. The night we were there, the restaurant was offering a special of 1/2 off the burgers. Four of our party had the burgers which... More

Usually stop for a night at the Hotel and eat here. It has turned into a Sports Bar with a limited restaurant menu. The atmosphere and view are excellent and the food is OK but not what it was.
