Plan on taking half of this sandwich home. It is huge and it is great. I consider myself a Reuben Sandwich expert---I've had them all over Northern Michigan, and this is the best one anywhere.

My wife and I enjoyed a very nice meal on the deck with a nice view of the Boyne River. My barbecued ribs were very good as was her chicken marsala. The portions were very generous; we both took half of our meal home.
