Geno's is a delightful local sports pub with good food and service with reasonable prices. TV's are on with regional and national sports. Geno's is a great place to stop when snowmobiling riding along trail # 3 in Thompsonville, MI. Have fun on your sled as well as at Geno's!

Mountain Valley Lodge recommended Genos for dinner. We were not let down. It was very crowded, Saturday night. Service was adequate. Pizza was very good. Interior was decorated like an old lodge. An old country feel. There was live music, singer, who was pretty good. I would go back to try other food selections.

This little restaurant/bar is a gem. The service is great and so is the food. They even Have Gluten Free Pizza. If you go there, go on Tuesday night and get the Broasted Pork Chops. Yes I said "Broasted." We weren't quite sure what to think, would they be breaded or greasy. To our surprise, they are not breaded and... More

I really enjoyed this bar the first time. The waitress was good as well as the food and drink. It was a really good impression so we returned the following night. Unfortunately we had a different waitress and she was terrible. She was a little crusty and it took us over an hour to get our food. Try and get... More

The place looks like a dive but it was recommended by the locals. My wife got sliders and me and the kids got the pizza, the pizza was one of the best I ever had, they also had 1 dollar PBR beers. I have young kids and I was skeptical looking at the outside of the building, but it had... More

We took a break from the pricey Crystal Mountain restaurants and found this place per other reviewers. They were super busy so it did take over an hour to get our main course (did get appetizers). A couple next to us actually left. However, the staff was super friendly and did their best to accommodate us while we waited (free... More

At first we were a little nervous to go but the tripadvisor reviews convinced us. Thank goodness - what a find! The food was great and the waitstaff was very helpful. Plus the prices were a lot less than at Crystal Mountain. Go ahead and give it a try, you'll be pleasantly surprised!

The first night there it was crowded. it was 2 hours and total chaos. Our waitress was actually running. We went back the neck day and there were a lot fewer people and was totally different. It was almost instant service and we were in and out within about a half hour. Geno actually told us the long wait night... More

While staying at Crystal Mountain recently, my buddy and I wanted to see what Thompsonville, Michigan had to offer. Not much apparently. But they did have this "sports bar" (ie - ranch house with an open floor plan and a bar, pool table & tv's). Pretty popular with the locals too. We went in for a couple of beers and... More
