This was our first time to this place and found it to be excellent. The service was excellent and the food came to us with huge helpings and piping hot. We will be back.

Having acquired some vacation property in a neighboring town, we found this place by chance searching the internet for local fare. What a gem of a place. Great food, good service (some are better than others, but we never truly leave disappointed), Only one time...we made a comment to each other about the "team" of servers seeming to not be very balanced, but overall, it's a great place to eat, the food is always hot, and always good. Love the vast menu options, bar options, and made-to-order attention to detail. I am on a special diet, and they never disappoint when I change up my order. We really enjoy the atmosphere and people there. It's a go-to stop everytime we're "up north". Great little place, totally worth the drive.More

This has been our favorite bar/restaurant in the area for several years now, and every year we make it a point to visit at least a couple of times while staying in the area. The food and draft beers never disappoint. Although it is extremely...hard to pinpoint a favorite, The River Monster Burger, is definitely amongst my top picks. Juice patties (yes, two!), fresh pretzel bun, and lots of cheese, mushrooms and more. I have a big mouth, but this burger is HUGE, messy and oh, sooooo good! The Fish Fry on Friday is exceptional, and the Macaroni & Cheese with local, pure Michigan Maple Syrup from the nearby Sengelaub Farm is absolutely the bomb! Great draft beer and drink selection...More

Stopped in for lunch with friends and all ordered burgers - Good. Will stop again. Would have given 5 stars except the waitress refilled my Coke with tea and wasn’t around to make it right or give us our bill in a timely manner.

This restaurant is in Hersey, a small berg about 15 minutes or so north of Big Rapids. It's worth the drive, if you have time. Dining room in the front of the restaurant, qnd a bar and grill in the back. Good food. The service...is OK.More

The food has been good each time I have eaten here. Different subs, sandwiches, pizza. The service has been spotty. I am not sure if the waitress' are over worked or get overwhelmed when the place gets half full, but that has been consistent with...each trip there. I am usually not in a rush when I go there, so the wait for food isn't a problem. I guess if you are in a hurry, go some where else. If you have time to wait a bit longer than normal for some good food, this is your place.More

I've been here a few times. They have an eclectic menu; something for everyone. The burgers and pizzas are especially good. Surprisingly, they even offer a gluten free crust! You can expect a full bar with several draft beer choices and wines.

We recently have dined at this restaurant three times over the past three months - suffice to say, every experience has been truly exceptional. The service is "top notch"...all of the waitresses work diligently to ensure that everyone is waited on quickly and taken care...of. The food - amazing!!! The menu is very diverse...you are guaranteed to find something that you will surely like and most importantly, it is ALL great. We continue to be completely surprised by the extent of the menu and the quality of the food. From an appearance perspective, this is your typical "up North" restaurant/bar with a comfortable knotty pine interior....but DO NOT let that fool you because the food and service is beyond compare. We drive our of our way for this place, and have never been disappointed. I had some hesitation in writing this review...only because I do not want this place to get overly busy that I will not be able to get a table for my family....but they definitely deserve to get the recognition for being a truly outstanding restaurant. We will definitely be back !More
