One of the best Hamburgs in the UP, and if you are really hungry, try the double. It's a bar, and the atmosphere is typical, but put that aside for a good burger!

We had heard about how good the burgers were here so we drove up to try them. They were just an average bar burger. We each had a burger and a soda. We ordered a side of onion rings and half naked hotties (they had no jalapenos in them so I think we just got cheese curds by mistake). Our... More

Great Burgers, excellent service. The place could be classified as a dive, but has great burgers. Our server was awesome. A lot of local people eat here as well.

Food was very good, staff were cool, the atmosphere is genuine U.P. I can see it being a great place for locals and decent for travellers. They have a good selection of local brews.

Great little bar with fantastic hamburgers. The bun did not feel like it fills you up with bread. Burgers hot and juicy. Great staff, friendly people to talk with.

We were famished after a long day in the Porkies and headed into Ontonagon for a bite. Fantastic, old school tavern atmosphere with a small grill area visible from the bar. One bartender, who was super nice and really knew his beer selection. Burgers were the best we'd had so far in the U.P., fresh, tasty, great grilled buns. I'd... More

From the reviews I expected a lot more, was very disappointed in the service and the food. Some die hard drunks at the bar. Was nothing like the reviews I read. Would have walked out if there had been other convenient choices. Next time I'll buy food and cook it myself, actually probably not return to Ontonagon again.

Locals suggested two possible places for dinner in this very small and unassuming UP town. We opted for Roxey's, a small local bar that also serves food, since one of us wanted a hamburger and their sign said they had the best burgers. The place is a bit run down and nothing fancy. I had my doubts about eating family... More

We went to Roxy's Bar and Grill on the recommendation of a local resident. The Roxy burger on locally baked kaiser roll was excellent. The owner was super-friendly - and he made a good G & T.

The burgers here are very good, and the folks working the grill know what they are doing. The bartender was helpful and attentive, and gave us some good recommendations, including some hush puppies that served as our dessert! The beer choices are somewhat limited, but they do have some good local brews, like the Widow Maker from the Keeweenaw brewing... More
