Went here with a hunting friend last Friday and I must say... one of the worst fish frys I've ever had. The fish was so greasy I had to wipe it off before I could attempt to eat it. I've eaten here many times but never for fish fry. Escanaba sports many fish frys no need to go here for... More

The food is always good, the restaurant is very clean, and the wait staff is always on point. This is the go to place for locals on a budget, I cannot say anything bad about it. It is not for me but I could be wrong

It is bigger inside then it looks from the outside. Had family style chicken dinners, goulash as specials the night we were there. Food was good and service as well. Typical family style restaurant.

Great location on the main road with plenty of parking. Not a greasy spoon but a great family eatery. Our choice was breakfast and the menu plentiful. Very clean and great service. We were pleased that Family Inn had been very helpful in substituting parts of our order to meet our health restrictions. When in the area we would not... More

Nothing fancy, but eggs, bacon and toast were just as we ordered. Open by 6:00 am, so you can eat and get on the road.

I chose this restaurant based on trip advisor reviews, most of which were very favorable. This is a very typical family style restaurant, open dining area, booths and tables. I gave this a 4 star review because of what my husband ordered, the Asian chicken wrap. He absolutely loved it, said it was the best wrap he had ever had.... More

Having been on the road all day, we rushed in just before closing and were greeted with warm smiles and great service. Homemade breads, soups, desserts and (I think) salad dressings were all delicious. Even though it was closing time we were not rushed in any way. Good food offered by good people who are proud of their town and... More

I love going to this restaurant! They serve breakfast all day long! The portions are enough for two people if you don't eat a lot. I usually end up taking half home for another meal, which is great.
