Our first time here and we'll FOR SURE be back !! The chicken is moist and amazing ! Homemade mashed potatoes and biscuits too !!! Gravy, and homemade soup. A yummo, cozy meal. Saw many wonderful dishes on the menu, especially the Greek food which is hard to find up here. Service very friendly. Felt like home.

I've been eating the Broasted Chicken at the Hen House for the last 2 years & I know it's the best I've ever had. Recently M-Live held a contest & The Hen House came in #10 of 33 restaurants in Michigan. Now I don't know those other 10 restaurants, so I must claim that the Hen House is the best... More

One of our frequent stops when we are up here. Good breakfast and great sandwiches. Staff is always very friendly and I love the chicken decor all over the place.

They have a good breakfast, and make things the way you want it. They also have a nice selection of pies, if you have room for desert. They claim to have the best chicken around, but I have to disagree. I tried it once. Not worth repeating.

The last review was wrong. This place is cheaper to eat at than any place around. Best chicken ever. Who cares if other customers were old that's who lives in this town. So you drove 5 miles.

This place was horrible. I am seriously wondering who rates these places and if their idea of ideal is GFS and McDonalds. The quality of food is NOT ideal for anyone with a good palette. I know it sounds harsh but we drove 5 miles out of the way due to the reviews we read. The only accurate thing was... More
