“Hougton Lake in to 79 Houghton Lake in the Seventies.”
Reviewed 29 April 2013 via mobile

LJs is like going back in time . no improvements in years but they do have excellant hamburgers. It is a friendly atmosphere but service might be a bit slow if there is more than 10 people in the place.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed 30 March 2013 via mobile

We went for the all you can eat fish fry for Good Friday. Fish was very fresh. Came with a salad and a side. Place was packed and the wait wasn't too long. Service was good. Portions were great too.

“Very friendly staff”
Reviewed 16 February 2013

We stopped in on a Friday night. My husband really liked the pollock special. He thought it was better than cod. The other three dinners our family ordered were pretty average for the area.

“Always very accommodating of my food allergies”
Reviewed 29 January 2013

We have a place in Higgins Lake and come here because they are willing to accommodate my food allergies. I never ask for anything outrageous. They are always polite & professional. The last couple of times I was there I attempted to order French fries. The waitress was on the ball and asked if I could have them, reminding me that they did not have a dedicated fryer. How could I forget to ask that? But - How great is that! What service! (Got the baked potato instead).

We will definitely be returning (hopefully for many years) to Kilkare Inn.

“Great food”
Reviewed 24 January 2013

This is a great place for food and/or a drink!! Food is homemade and the bartender is always friendly!!! It's always packed on Tip Up Town so be ready to wait a bit for your food, eat early and avoid the dreaded wait!!!
