We took 60 travelers to Neath the Birches and the food and service was excellent. Everything was prepared for our arrival and the whitefish and cod on the buffet line were exceptional but everything was wonderful. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Jeannie V,

I am glad you had such a great time. We try to make sure everything is hot and good on our buffets just like on our regular dinner menu. I hope you will be able to stop back and see us again.

We had our anniversary dinner here tonight. I must admit, when we pulled into the parking lot, I was not impressed. But that was the last time. Our waitress Char was fabulous, very friendly and attentive. In fact, we asked about buying some of their homemade cheese spread to take home and this dear lady chased us down as we were leaving to give us a doggie bag with spread and crackers. The food was excellent, especially the homemade potato salad on the salad bar. My husbands ribs were flavorful and falling off the bone tender. My crab legs were great. When you order a baked potato they bring cheese, sour cream, butter and chives right to your table for you to choose your toppings. Do yourself a favor and don't miss out on this hidden gem!

We stopped on a Sunday and were the only people eating. Waitress never smiled and made us feel unwelcomed. Prime Rib was tasteless and tough. Ribs were OK but old, we guessed from a previous day. Salad bar was the only good thing we experienced. My wife especially enjoyed the apple salad.

Paul C,

I am glad you enjoyed the Salad Bar, we do have the nicest in town. If you had let the staff know you were unhappy, they would have made you something else. If I am in a restaurant and I don't like the food I normally tell the staff at the restaurant, I don't wait till I get home and then cry about it.

Sincerely,

Vern Hiar, Manager

We recently visited Neath the Birches and everything about them is terrific. Our trip to Mackinaw was to celebrate by husband's 60th bday. I called ahead to get some information and spoke with Jeff. Not only did we have a table waiting for our party of 7 when we arrived but the dinner was excellent and the service was outstanding. Everyone is so accomodating and seems to go out of their way to make the visit enjoyable. After our dinner my husband was presented with a bday cake, candle and all! Thank you for making this a special day for all of us!!
