We visited Little Boots Country Diner twice on our visit to Houghton Lake for breakfast. The breakfast offerings are not fancy but very good. The service is good and the quaint western boot atmosphere was interesting. We will visit here again on future trips to the lake.

We noticed that other patrons that were seated after us only had to wait 10 minutes or less before receiving their order so I'm not sure why our wait was so long. The food was very very good and hot... More

We should have gone to Shakers. Our waitress the "manager" (melissa) was rude. She asked us how our food was and one person said cold. Her reply was im going to call the police, and that we have been nothing but rude to her.... All for asking for warm toast?!? The "owner" said, "nice job, you handled that well." If... More
