Good is good, service is poor, never enough staff to accomodate guests. Lots of empty tables with a long wait time. Gun Lake Burger is a great value at $5.95.

Whenever we go to Gun Lake we always have lunch in the Sandhill Cafe. We have never been disappointed. Have always had wonderful and fast service, good food served fresh and hot. Portions are big, no reason to go away hungry. The Gun Lake burger is one of the best. Breakfasts are also good.

We waited a while after being seated for someone to initially stop by our table to take our beverage and food order. We ordered the turkey dinner, mashed potatoes and gravy. It was a processed turkey, the gravy looked like gelatin and the potatoes were iffy...all for $10. The taste was not good. The waitress made us wait about 15... More

Had a good dinner at the Sandhill Cafe. I had the perch which were tasty however the fries were just ok. My wife had the Shrimp Fettuccini, which she felt didn't have much taste. A huge dinner but not a lot of flavor

Every single time we come here there is a 45-60 minute wait with lots of open tables, and always with one excuse or another. This time there were over 30 open tables and we still waited. We saw at least 10 couples walk out because the wait time was inexcusable. Wake up, Gun Lake tribe! People get angry when there... More

A/B for their servers and service. Had a poor imitation of a blue cheese burger, which had little to no flavor, and loaded with stuff - eh, didn't fill the bun. BLT average. But would recommend the cheddar cheese soup, served with a nice soft pretzel. Had a few brands of local Michigan craft beers to choose from - $5... More

We love this restaurant. Sometimes it's the main reason we come to the casino! Our favorite menu item is their Gun Lake Hamburger. Always priced as a special at $5.99. Delicious!!

My wife & I visited this restaurant (inside the Gun Lake Casino) twice in one week as we were staying in the area. Both meals (each time) were enjoyed by us.
