With the lack of breakfast restaurants in the Houghton, MI area you'd wonder why there are so few people eating at Armandos. Then you try the food and realize why the place is empty when all the other restaurants in town that serve breakfast have a line waiting. I've been there and tried the breakfast buffet and have also tried... More

Servings were huge. Had an entree. Came with salad, choice of potatoes or spaghetti with meat sauce, choice of bread, plus vegetable. The salad was very large and it was fresh and nicely done. Could've added a chicken breast and had a filling meal, I think. Too much of everything. Fish was a little dry, but almost as big as... More

We have dined at Armandos a few times now and it is very good and authentic Italian food. My background is in restaurants and, specifically, I managed an Italian restaurant for over ten years. This is a place that still makes many of the dishes partially, or completely from scratch. I believe even the deserts are all from scratch. Sometimes... More

Most of the food is good and the portions are large. Rather inexpensive restaurant with good service. We didn't care for the breakfast, but lunch and dinner is pretty good.

The two most popular breakfast places in Hancock/Houghton are the Kaleva and The Suomi. On a busy weekend getting in to either of those is near impossible, so it is good to have a go to second choice. That is Armando's. Armando's, for whatever reason, does not have the buzz of the other two. However, its breakfasts are fine and... More

Had a burger and a beer here with family and friends. The burgers were your average bar burgers. Nice selection of beers on tap.

I've only been here twice and both times for lunch. We were the only table both times. We had sandwiches/burgers and all were good. The veggie wrap was delicious...not bland at all. The service was great...very friendly. The owner was there and was very nice too. I can't speak on the italian/dinner food but lunch was good. If I could... More

They are side by side. And since there is no place to review the saloon, here ya go. We were going to have lunch at Armando's but the place was empty at Sat. around 4 PM. Had beers and sandwiches, which were OK, nothing special, and nothing bad. The bartender was very attentive. The atmosphere like English Tudor. Good prices.... More
