We were in Northern MI for a family reunion and stopped in for lunch. The food was excellent-pizza, salads, sandwiches, and appetizers. The beer selection, especially Michigan beers was very good. We'll be back the next time we're nearby.

This little gem is perfectly nestled in the Sturgeon River Valley right off the main road running from Indian River, to Wolverine (US27). Whether you are snowmobiling one of northern Michigan's vast trail networks, or out for a weekend drive, or enjoying a fun filled trip down an exciting river you absolutely must STOP, relax and refuel your belly!! We have an up north decor, including log walls. We are known for our Reuben balls & Schmeer Appetizer. You can also enjoy Finger Food, Sandwiches to Wrap, Salads, and Pizzas. Save room for dessert we have an amazing banana bread pudding.
