The restaurant is more like a small quaint diner. The food is very good; there are usually quite a lot of people eating here, and the staff is attentive as well as pleasant. It is a good family place to eat.

Stopped inhere based on a locals recommendation. They did not mislead us. The breakfast buffet was huge and had a large variety to please all crowds. We left stuffed and happy. The price was cheap too. When in town definitely go where the locals go!

I have lived in Alpena for almost 4 years & heard great reviews about Olde Town. Tried going when working, but it seems not to be consistent with times a restaurant should be open. Service was OK for our group; not a lot of interrupting....More

Love the family atmosphere and great breakfast buffet. The restaurant offers American great food. Burgers are delicious and so are fries. Loved taking my boys here after basketball games for breakfast.
