What a great place, they have an new appetizer every month the Mac n cheese one was fabulous. I have never had a bad meal here. Awesome pizza, the perch is delicate and wonderful not heavily bartered or greasy, the broasted chicken and mashed potatoes will stick to your ribs and the crowing jewel is the pot roast beef dinner...

Can't beat their roast beef, hot sandwich or dinner, very tasty. Clean and fast friendly service. Located a little out of the way, but worth the drive.

We have been here several times and every time we have visited the owner is always present and greets you with a warm welcome. You can tell he really cares about his clientele. Great pizza and selection of craft beers.

For each visit we've always been welcomed by the owner. This time we had our three grandkids and our daughter with us. First of all she put a $10 bill in the quarter dispensing machine and got $2.50 plus a nickel so obviously something was wrong. The waiter told us to wait for the owner which we did while we...

A destination spot that is usually crowded for a reason. Good for large groups, too. They will take a reservation, now take Visa and offer Woodbridge wines as their house wine - for a good price. My favorite is their broasted chicken but the perch is also very good and reasonable. Just a big, open, friendly place (with games etc... More

Many people recommended this place I guess that's why it was so disappointing.! Terrible acoustics and very friendly owner needs to tone down his conversations with customers. Waitresses friendly, efficient great sense of humor! We both had perch fish itself thoroughly cooked but breading looked anemic. I removed the large leaf of lettuce and tomato slice to enjoy the fish... More

The place is out in the middle of nowhere but several hunting cabins around. Place was packed but sat right down. They have a huge bottled beer selection as well as several wine selections. It was perchville weekend in East Tawas so it was a must to try the perch. It is fantastic and the Broasted chicken is also wonderful.... More

They have a broaster!! That does it for me- best chicken but my favprite is the broasted Pork Steak!! Always been wonderful!! Fast service, friendly wait staff and owner! It is a small drive out of the way for us but we always think of it if we are celebrating a birthday or out in that direction. They have great... More
