May have new ownership, but this place needs more work to improve and get it right. Service was extremely slow, the atmosphere is still as dated as ever, the food was below average. Veggies were waterlogged, our fish was over cooked in fryer and chewy. I would pass on this place, especially since better establishments in Coloma only a few... More

At the last minute we decided to go out to eat because we were too tired from a busy day of raking leaves to cook. Then there was matter of finding something close enough, because we really didn't want to have to drive for thirty minutes or more to find a place that would have something to please everyone... the...

My husband is from Michigan, so every time we are around the area we have to find a place that has perch! This place has been in our radar for a couple of years. Their perch is off the chain! So good and crisp. The servers are so friendly. It's just like coming home. The prices over all are great.... More

Not sure they want people there after 9pm. Went there with another couple on Saturday night and felt that we were holding the workers up from closing.....and it was 8:45😳 Used to come here and old owners never made you feel uncomfortable.

You have to try the Mac and cheese! Omg sooooo good. Southern fried chicken was also a big hit with our dinner party of 10. It nice to see they are adding new things to the menu and also keeping a lot of the old favorites

This place loves everything Chicago and the Board of Trade makes sense. Very little atmosphere, but not many places to choose.. So it's best in class. It's a dive, but the locals don't care. We had ribs. The meat fell off the bone and sauce was okay. Limited draft beers and the locals drink mostly bottled. Homemade pies - crust... More

My husband and I were taken out to eat here by some friends... It was wonderful! Pork chops were huge and literally 'fall off the bone' tender. The shrimp was also very good, along with the ribs, which were falling off the bone as well. Also, great coffee. And although we didn't save room for dessert, it looked very appealing!... More

So, Lake Paw Paw is not where the rich and glamorous go to vacation. But it is a lovely lake with many, many beautiful homes around it. Of course, just as many power and a few sail boats as well. Seeing all the groomed million dollar homes, I would suspect that more top notch restaurants could do well there. I... More

Wonderful, warm service...and the magic ends there. I had the lake perch that was less than appetizing...too much breading on the perch. The dessert was a lemon pie that was also just passable. What I will say though is that our server was very friendly, accommodating to our large group of rained-out campers and made us feel right at home.... More
