We arrived just before closing when most people would be very unhappy that you walked in. Immediately sat us and gave us the home town hospitality. The food was great and the conversation was also very informative and fun! This is a great place that...More

Bessie's, (still owned by the family of Bessie) is home made pasties at their best. Get em' with gravy and cole slaw for a real treat. They are a little cheaper at other places but not as good in my opinion.

We've had pasties all over Michigan's UP. Bessie's ties with one other for our all time favorite. We've come here for many years; it NEVER disappoints. Nothing fancy about Bessie's but it's a perfect small town, anti-chain restaurant.

We stopped and picked up some pasties to take home. They are frozen and ready to go. We ate them within a few days of getting home from our trip, and they were excellent! Bessie's is a regular stop for us...
