Not sure how to rate this, but tried to eat there this evening and discovered everything shut down! A sign in the windows said "closed until spring 2017." It looks as though they are doing some remodeling.

On the road since 5 a.m. .We had planned our stop at the Sugar Bowl and want a pleasant stop it was.

I wanted the basic breakfast,... More

I am so happy we stopped here for breakfast. Delicious food and great prices, has a small town feel. Great service. Wish I didn't live 3 hours away! I would seriously consider moving to Gaylord to be closer to this place.

Stopped for breakfast. Had been told it was a really good place to eat. Food was nothing special. Good but not out of the ordinary.

Sugar Bowl is never a bad choice if you want something good to eat. It is an 'older' restaurant in downtown Gaylord, but Gaylord is so small that does not cause a problem. Right now the city is working on the sidewalk in front of the restaurant, so park in the back and go in that way.

This was a very nice restaurant for the area. A few downsides were there are 2 different sections to the restaurant - one has better ambiance and a salad bar, the other a more family style that had an all you can eat cod special that wasn't offered in the fancier side. 1/2 our party wanted one offering while the...

but we won't visit again. It was clean and our waitress was terrific. Yes it's outdated but as long as it's clean that's fine. It was extremely overpriced. I could justify the expense if the servings were generous or came with a side. I could justify it if the food was really, really good. But that wasn't the case. I... More
