We went here for their fish on a Friday night. Place was busy but didn't wait more than 10 minutes for a table. Service was good and pleasant. Food was great. The decor in the restaurant/bar is pretty cool too.

The food was good, the atmosphere is interesting, always like visiting unique restaurants while we are away. Unfortunately they could have used more help, they were busy, so the service was very slow.

The Painted Lady is a little out of the way, in that you won't accidentally drive past, but it's easy to find and worth looking for. Three of us thoroughly enjoyed homemade soups and broasted chicken. This is a charming little place with good food,...More

The Painted Lady is located in Manistee, MI it is the oldest operating saloon in town. The bar and tin ceiling are original from when it was built back in the late 1880's. When Bob and Linda Venne bought the building in 1994 they turned it into The Painted Lady Saloon which is now well known for their broasted chicken and award winning home-made soup. They offer breakfast, lunch and dinner plus a full bar from open to close. With a wide variety of food to choose from it's the perfect stop for a good meal and a little bit of history.
