I have tried repeatedly to give this place "another chance". The food is usually good , but the atmosphere is horrible. I feel like I am sitting at a card table in a dark, gloomy, basement. It's always so dark. You can't see outdoors. The interior is so old and in need of an update.

We went there on a weekend with the snow blowing, etc. The hostess which I believe may have been the owners was VERY nice and very cheering. We had the perch dinner which was amazing. The only negative is that it was not really hot, but it was good.

Our favorite place for dinner and we are never disappointed. Parmesan crusted white fish is excellent! I get the fresh veggies and my husband likes the potato wedges. Comes with a nice crisp salad.

We came here several times for dinner and once for lunch. The food is very good. They have a nice selection of specials everyday of the week. The ribs,chicken,fish, steaks are great. We loved the mashed potatoes. We enjoyed the carrot cake and most of all the Pumpkin Cheesecake. The service is fast and friendly. Their prices are reasonable. Don't... More

My wife and I had been here 3 times in the past for lunch and loved their whitefish sandwiches very much. We were there a few days ago for dinner. I ordered their "World Famous Fried Cod". My wife ordered the whitefish sandwich on vegetable bread, and my sister ordered Nachos. My cod was wonderful, but I was a bit... More

We tried this restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. Food was fresh and tasted like a home cooked meal. The outside isn't much to look at, but it was neat and clean on the inside. Prices were reasonable, and server was very friendly.

Stopped in for lunch with my son. The waitress took great care of us and made sure we were happy with our food. She took great care of my son with special needs and made sure he was happy! Great food and value.

We have been going here for years. There are few places to eat dinner at in Cheboygan--we try to avoid chains while on vacation to support local businesses. Great Lakes Grill has great waitresses that are attentive and call most customers by name. The food is good. Fresh homemade bread comes with your meal. The croutons on the salad are... More
