I Really don't understand the positive reviews, the food is terrible and price as a "normal" restaurant. I went for a gift card but for sure it is the first and the last time. hope you can improve...

We stayed at the adjoining Wyndham hotel for a conference. We ate here for Saturday night dinner and breakfast on Sunday. Saturday night was very quiet. The waitress was super nice. Although there only seemed to be maybe 10 folks in the there, it took a while to get our food. The pizza was delicious and the salads are huge... More

We went here after a 2 or 3 year hiatus. The décor was totally different than in the past. It used to have Deer heads, stuffed fish, etc.on the walls, to make the feel of a log cabin. They still have the beautiful fireplace. When I asked the waitress about it, she said it was recently bought by Wyndham and... More

Sorry folks, go somewhere else. Food was buried in cheese from the nachos (cold and greasy), the chicken pasta was a brick of cheese and oil (cold). Understaffed in the front and can only assume the same in the back. Definetly a lower rated hotel restaurant, priced like it was a 5 star hotel.

Was staying at the Wyndham Garden where this restaurant is located. I was dining with two other colleagues. All three of us zeroed in on the Walleye dinner. The food was superb, the wine was tasty and the server was quite friendly. All in all a good experience. We will be returning on our next trip to Sterling Heights.

My husband and I have eaten here several times over the years, always good meals. Went last night with another couple and were so very disappointed. First, the menu has changed and we felt it was not as varied and eclectic as before. Secondly, if you order wine, don't expect a generous glass; only half filled. Third, the men ordered... More

We went into the restaurant for lunch since we were in the area. Mom and I were the only table in the entire place. I ordered a beer and mom coffee. I had asked for a new pot to be brewed. The coffee came out luke warm. There was no steam so I new it was old. I asked for... More

I went here during an event at the hotel. The service was quite slow. The food was not bad. I had a turkey club. It was a pretty big sandwich. It came with big thick British style chips (fries) and a little cucumber salad. I like the little fire in the back which is nice and toasty.
