Have been there several times. Food is usually good and service varies but usually good. It is a local bar not the Blue Pelican. They have some good nightly specials.

Always cooked to perfection and taste AMAZING! The service isn't always consistent, but the food and relaxed atmosphere make up for the sketchy service

The ONLY reason this place is still in business is because there are no other bars for miles around. If there were, the owner would either have to spent some $$$ to make improvements or be run out of business.

The food is decent bar food, however, not consistent. The service is inconsistent as well. The beer is NEVER cold although the story you'll hear from the staff is that the cooler is in the process of being "repaired/replaced." That story has been told for years. The bottom line is that the beer is always warm and I hate warm beer.

I've lived in and traveled to many different countries including "3rd World" areas and the restrooms at the Nugget are the dirtiest I have EVER seen. (Other than Moscow) Incredible. There is absolutely NO maintenance performed on the restrooms and I doubt they have EVER been cleaned. I am consistently amazed as to why the health department lets this place stay open.

Do yourself a favor and drive into Charlevoix or East Jordan to eat.

We first went before they passed no smoking laws. Never to return- cough, cough. Then we went with friends to a live band night. It was fun. It is not about he food. Sat. night is the night in the summer! Lots of grease but good service.

This is truly a locals hang out. Big bar with entertainment on the weekends. Good bar food especially the burgers. The service could be better.
