Once a week a group of friends get together for breakfast. We discuss sports, cars, families, politics and what ever else we fancy.

Compared to the myriad of generic chain restaurants that are to be found in Muskegon, Cherokee is an original gem with outstanding food and service. Yes, it's kitschy but that's part of the charm. We will be back.

Have eaten here on numerous occassions. Food is decent, but the decor and building are so dated, run down. The place needs a big facelift. Updating inside and out. The building has been here for years according to the locals. Good location and good parking.

My wife and I were headed to the SS Silversides Museum and stopped by for lunch. We had two perch sandwiches which were a break from the items you usually see on lunch menus. Service was good and the prices were reasonable

My husband & I took our best friends & their two kids under five out for breakfast before our flight home. The waitress was very accommodating to the little ones, even as they got antsy through our meal. Food was good, priced reasonably.

Fun local neighborhood restaurant that's mostly for breakfast and lunch. They may serve dinner but we are there for breakfast. Service is pretty quick and prices are low.
