Been in northern Michigan for 3 days and this is the best place we’ve eaten. Great food and nice people. No TV, just good music and good conversation. We will be back.

We had a fun, relaxed dinner here. It was a nice break from the "normal" dining experience. We still aren't exactly sure what broasted chicken is (their specialty), but it was great! It's just a few miles north of Leland and worth the drive if...More
