Nice bar & restaurant. They also have rental space in the back for big parties. Parking is on the street in front & across the street in parking lot. In the summer it's a little challenging to get across busy street, so be careful! Great variety of food & drinks & it's all good.

The waiter, Michael was very attentive, informational, and humorous. The elders ordered soup which they said was delicious, my daughter ordered an appetizer to share and the trio of sliders... More

Fish special on Fridays is 3 pieces of cod fries and I think coleslaw. Food came out quickly was hot and tasty. They have tap and bottle beer... More

This restaurant looks smaller from the outside than it is. We were looked online and found very mixed reviews and decided to stop and see for ourselves what it was like.

Improvement over last visit. Wait staff was very attentive. Food was good and made from scratch. Three lunch specials all were priced right. Not a lot happening in Alanson ... especially aqt he Crooked Lake Tavern. ... they do have three televisions and a cute waitress.
