I went to the Come Back In yesterday for lunch. It was fabulous. Good food, good service and reasonable prices. I had a Rueben and the corn beef was thick and juicy. The battered fries were very good and the Thousand Island dressing was really good. I have to think it was made from scratch as it was that good.... More

My wife and I decided to try the Comeback Inn since we had dined at the Essen Haus weeks before and they share the kitchen. One can order from the Essen Haus and that is what I did. My wiener schitzel was excellent as was the potatoes pancake as a potatoes choice. My wife ordered the citrus salmon from the... More

The value is there -- most full breakfast platters are $8.95 and feature eggs, meat, very good house-made potatoes, and "bread" (I had two plate size blueberry pancakes). Mimosas, Bloody Mary's and screwdrivers are $3 and served in pint-sized glasses.

Enjoyed brunch here with family on saturday morning after a surprise 30th birthday party. Seating was immediate, drink special prices couldn't be beaten, and the German themed food did us all good after a night of drinking. Nice variety and great service. Good prices for the food as well.

Came here for brunch. The Come Back In offers a large menu. My guest had the Prime Rib with eggs. Generous cut of meat, potatoes, and well cooked eggs. I had the Walleye and Eggs. Everything was cooked really well. I had the pancakes as my toast. They were really good. The Screwdriver is a full size glass for $3... More

Dimly lit restaurant with bar. Great atmosphere. Open for all meals- we had breakfast and dinner. I've never had so many different options for potatoes. The breakfast selections were great and the prices reasonable. Exceptional service!

Party of seven and after a brief wait, our waiter Thomas took our 3 separate orders. The food was delicious especially the walleye and the corned beef.

The Come Back is a bar, I can't really say too much more then that about it, other then they have a decent about of craft beers on tap. I can however speak to the great service and food at their Sunday brunch. Solid Bloody's and service with a smile.

We visited the Come Back In for breakfast on Mother's Day. I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to going back. One caveat, I never actually went inside. We parked in the back of the building where there is a decent sized parking lot. At the end of the parking lot near the building were many tables and chairs.... More
