The food was good, but had to wait over an hour to place our order. We had buffalo burgers that were bland, fried pickles that were average, and the baked brie with cherry sauce that was very good.

The bar is full of history and personality- perfect selection of beers and a good wine list. The personnel were very friendly and obviously proud to work there. My wife and I stopped in and had a very enjoyable time!

Treated myself to lunch here alone and won't be back. Waitress ignored me; had to resort to calling out to her several times. The food was nothing special either. Maybe it would have been better with a group of drinking friends?

Glad to have been introduced to this place by a native Michigander. A proud interesting history with genuine decorations and taxidermy . Not really a hole in the wall, it's actually quite large, but the entry section has that kind of feel. Excellent staff. Very...More
