Traveling south from Munising, looking for somewhere to have breakfast and the first promising restaurant we saw was Delona. Lucky break for us - a cute log cabin with friendly staff and excellent food. Make this your stop for breakfast or lunch. Trust me, there...isn’t much to eat while traveling through the Hiawatha National Forest!More

Think twice before going here. There are plenty of over great restaurants. Waitress NEVER told us what the hold up was but we over heard that a order went to the wrong table. NO one should wait over an hour to eat. RUN save yourself.

I have a service dog for my son but she had just had surgery and was quiet and resting in a fully enclosed stroller when I decided to bring her in because it is 82 degrees out. The waitress asked if I had papers for...her and I said no. I was going to explain that my son has her info on his phone since that’s the modern option and she was so loud and obnoxious carrying on that we needed to take her out that we simply decided to leave. It wasn’t a problem to accommodate anything they requested but I find that if they act so ridiculous, loud and obnoxious that it’s not a place we want to stay at anyway. I have hearing loss but even I could hear how loud they were being and my son who is autistic said they really didn’t need to go on so loud that the entire place could hear them. It really was obnoxious. We travel daily and travel across country with my sons service dog and this literally is the first place that acted like that. We remained entirely professional despite their rudeness and jumping to conclusions that Austin didn’t have his info on his phone. So we took our food to go and for the first time ever we did not leave a tip. Their tip is to act professionally at all times and perhaps instead of loudly going on maybe listen for a moment so they guest can explain where the info is.More

We stopped here for the first time and what a wonderful place! We had sandwiches and homemade chips. The prime rib sandwich was delicious along with the turkey wrap. There were many breakfast options as well. Quick service too! We highly recommend this place

My wife and I had breakfast here during our trip. No complaints everything was delicious . More than enough food for the price. Staff was friendly and prompt. Someone wrote a review complaining about masks. Well I would give six stars If i could for...common sense.More

Travelling up through the U.P. of Michigan. Was told that this restaurant was under new ownership and it was phenomenal. He was exactly correct! Service was really good, the food also matched that. Price was fair, again to get good food with good service---it was...worth it! Felt like I was a regular. Look for this place if heading north of Escanaba it would be on your right, if heading south of Gladstone would be on your left. I have friends that eat here every day, so I trust in their account of this place. I have eaten at a lot of places and this place is not fancy, and they make you feel at home. I see some complaining about masks. They have a sign on the door, but they aren't freaking out with disposable menus etc...Wash you hands after you look at menu. Enjoy the meal. Though if that is a concern of mask wearing-I can sympathize and you can check out another place for now and then come back to Delona at a later date.More

Stopped here this morning for breakfast. They were not requiring guests or staff to wear masks in violation of state law. Not only is it disappointing that they are willing to risk the health of their guests and staff by ignoring this health order, it...makes me wonder what other health ordinances they are choosing to ignore. We did not stay to eat and will never go back.More

We have eaten here several times. When it is good - it is great and when it is not good - it is terrible. There is no consistency in the quality of the food and you never know what you are going to get.

We popped in for a small lunch, soup and shared sandwich, which was fine so we went back for dinner rather than drive into Escabana. Both chose steak based on what we saw coming from the kitchen. My wife's was excellent, mine less so. Hers...replicated what we had seen but mine was thin and tired looking, would dispute it was the advertised weight. No I didn't complain so my fault. Background music, my era so enjoyed that.More

We stopped there on a Saturday for a late breakfast and a lunch we ordered and had to wait 55 minutes for our food. My husbands breakfast he said was good, but my corn beef sandwich wasn’t. The corn beef was tough. We were there...for over an hour and a half, And most of that was sitting around watching the people while we wait for our food. This wasn’t the first time we waited that long, hubby says no more.More
