Great Chicago hot dogs. Great fries. Great service. Great drinks. Fun atmosphere. Had to wait on a Sunday at the dowagiac train station for the always late amtrack train for four hours. Was relieved that the wounded minnow was open.

I'm not sure what has happened at the Minnow, but the level of service from the kitchen has really deteriorated. We used to visit twice a month and it's been about 5 months since we were there last time. A group of us visited on a Saturday afternoon, not very busy when we got there but it took forever to order and a simple 3 burgers and an order of nachos was messed up. Not sure how hard that is to cook, prep and plate, but only the nachos order was right. Sorry to see this happen; it's a great local place where you can visit with friends and family. We'll try one more time and order pizza to see if that's a better choice.

There were huge cobwebs hanging off the speaker on the wall above the salad bar. They were so long they looked like streamers.

On the plus side, the server was great! Very friendly and attentive.

The atmosphere is great -- quaint but a bit noisy. We got lucky and also had a combo of live entertainment. We sat towards the front of the restaurant and were pretty much ignored by our waitress, Kathy. The burgers are good, a bit overpriced if you want anything other than just a burger. They have a salad bar -- good; but you can't just get a side salad. I think there are other places to try in Dowagiac. We're going to try the "Wood Fire". It looks good!

Stopped in for cocktails... bloody marys were great! Really quaint building in such an old town. Not much going on on a Saturday afternoon in the dead of winter so it was a perfect place to stop in to soak up some local vibes.

Love the atmosphere, burgers and drinks were good and the fries were superior. We will certainly go back.
