Stopped in here for dinner and had some really good whitefish. The other folks in our group had different dinner selections but everyone agreed that their food was very tasty. Prices were moderate and the atmosphere was charming.

Decor is little dated, but tasteful and fun. Extensive menu and service that was unmatched by any other restaurant in the Cheboygan area. Prices were fair and the portions were large

Fried mushrooms and onion rings are awesome! Our family comes a couple of times a summer when we are up north. It hasn't changed in years...really could use a update in decor. But the food and service is still great.
