They have a lot of animal mounts inside so it makes it fun to look around. The service was very good. I had the nacho's and was slightly disappointed, they had on cheese sauce on them instead of melted cheese. The warm weather had the amount of snowmobilers down.

The Bear Trap is a snowmobiling staple stop. WIFI hot spot. Little-No cell phone service. ALWAYS ORDER THE CHICKEN DUMPLING SOUP! Even if you're full, order it! Burgers, Grilled Cheese, and Fries are all great choices. Service is sometimes slow, due to crazy busy times, but the ladies always do the best they can! Restrooms were recently updated and nice...

Good snowmobile stop. Good bar food. No draft beer unfortunately. Service is ok. Very crowded at times.

We stopped here for dinner on our way back to our cabin. The service was friendly and pretty quick. We had a burger, pork chops, fried chicken, clam strip basket, philly cheese steak and basket of fried portabella mushrooms. Everyone enjoyed everything we ordered. The clam strips were perfectly fried. The French fries were very good!! The waffle fries were... More

Husband and I ate here two times during our October 2016 weekend in Munising, MI. Our weekend was cold and rainy. We stopped in for breakfast one morning, we were between hotels and could not check-in yet. Plus, it was raining and cold and not much to do. Breakfast was great, I had an omelette. Coffee is really good. The... More

Stopped in after spending a day hiking and looking at waterfalls in picture rock park. My wife saw a sign for the restaurant and after driving by earlier decided to give it a try on our way back to Munising. The service was outstanding, the food was great and the portions were large. The prices were excellent. Would go back... More

We were staying near Munising and this restaurant wasn't too far so we thought we would check it out. It was clean, very friendly staff, we were waited on right away. I was cold down to the bones as we were out in the rain seeing water falls. I ordered hot turkey sandwich and my husband ordered philly cheese sandwich.... More

We had been looking at local waterfalls in the rain for 5 hours...needed coffee, and dreaded the usual weak cup of dribble that restaurants usually serve. I received a huge cup of the best coffee i've ever had while dining out. The waitresses were super-friendly, the prices reasonable, and the chicken-dumpling soup had actual dumplings...not the mini pre-made frozen ones.... More

Located near Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, and many OTV/AT and Snowmobile trails. Great place to rest and warm up! We have eaten here many times, never have we gone away hungry :) The Burgers are thick and juicy, and the Pasties are heavenly. You can really feel at home here. We will be back for more!

My husband and I stopped for a late lunch after hiking at Picture Rocks National Lakeshore. This is a bar/restaurant with emphasis on the bar. The place could have been cleaner but it was pretty average. The food, however, was very good. My husband had the special whitefish basket. The fish was great and the fries were very good (real...
