There were a lot of locals here for the lunch buffet. The food was good, but not great. Variety was also good. Service was very friendly and helpful.

This is definitely the premier hotel-motel in Bad Axe. Clean rooms, a great dining room, friendly bar staff. The owner is always on premises and friendly, really a nice guy. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Friends took us there for dinner. I can't begin to tell you how below average it was. The steak was like shoe leather, the fish was frozen and deep fried, the popcorn shrimp had be popped for a long time. The ribs were almost average but at least they were tender...flavorless but tender. The salad bar was good... no imagination, home made dressings that were poorly made. The deserts sad and stale.
It was obvious that the place was being run by people that didn't care about feeding people, just ripping them off. The buffet table was not cared for and it looked terrible. I was embarrassed and pissed off.

Dine frequently on weekend when buffet is avaialable. Extensive choices with prime rib as an option. A salad and desert bar are also offered together with the buffet. Great coffee! A complete bar is also available. A banquet hall is avaiable for booking.
