We stop here at least once when we visit Grand Haven. Food is good, service is also good. Huevos Rancheros are a favorite. I tried something new today and wish I would have just gone with my favorite.

I would say no Thanksgiving Day Buffet. Great Breakfast and Lunch though. Go there Friday morning post Thanksgiving, you wont regret it.
