    My favorite place. I’ve been going there for 35 years. The fanciest place to eat fried chicken.

    The food was excellent. Our waitress was very busy so there was a little wait for second servings but it just gave us some time to digest the first round. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

    Not good at all, chicken tasted reheated, walleye was fishy, noodles overcooked, waitress wasn’t too available, desserts are not what they used to be. Given the price of the food, this was so bad - $120 with tip for 3 people. Very disappointing, won’t be back.

    The food was too salty. Surprised they served dry sliced white bread instead of dinner rolls. Dinner took almost two hours due to slow service. Felt like they spent too long on appetizer round. Even brought out a second round of appetizers when we were all already finished eating them. Felt like they wanted us to fill up on coleslaw and bread instead of chicken. Ice cream cup with the plastic figure was the best part.

    If you’re getting the family chicken meal, there’s no need to order two. They give you enough sides and chicken for two people and the other person can order a different meal.

    Best experience, Best Food, Fresh Food, Coffee Hot, Cold Pop, And The Best Part Of All ? Rhonda !! From The Moment She Introduced herself as our waitress to the end she was absolutely fantastic! Smiling at all time, checking on us I would say every 3/5 min, Most importantly she acknowledged my son and that is always and that is my #1 important to me. We need more like Rhonda !! Thank You Rhonda 🥰

    Usually, a good time. Won't go on a holiday again. We were going to be seated in a room away from the Easter buffet. My elderly father could not walk with a cane plus carry his food to another room. Too many people. The ham and prime rib where basically gone by 6 pm. Disappointed we were not in the main dining room and had to eat downstairs.

    Made a dinner reservation for the Easter buffet on line I thought but, when I got there we were taken into the main dining room and, when I asked about the buffet our waitress said the buffet was already full for reservations. I’m disappointed on how it was made on line. Also when they are so crowded they need to have a microphone for when they are calling people for the reservations because of the amount of people waiting in the room.

    We regularly make the hour plus trip up almost every quarter. Usually love the appetizers and food. This time was not so great. Not sure if too busy to care or what. Coleslaw was way too wet, prime-rib was cut too thin and bland, chicken not as breaded as usual. :(

    I’m glad you asked. Granted we dined with a family group of 15. However, I feel that you need to know of my displeasure with my meal. I ordered the feast because I liked the look of the prime rib and shrimp . I received thin slices of beef that was cold and a bake potato that I never located because it was at the other end of the table. Whatever, when I pay $160 for a dinner I expect more than I received. I’ll be interested in your response. Terry Milia.

    We did the buffet but where put in the baseman this year and it was nothing like the other years we went. The desert table in the basement compared to up stairs was garbage. It would be as sad for us if in the past we wouldn’t have gotten to be in the main dining room. We won’t be back on Easter!!!

    The building was beautiful. The history in it is worth the visit. The service was great and they were so kind. Now the food is another story. The fried chicken was not good. Dry breast, no crunch factor, and just disappointing. The mashed potatoes were gummy. Between 2 people we probably had 10 bites of food combined before giving up. We weren’t mad at the bad food intact it was funny. I’m glad I went for the experience
