Walked in and restaurant was basicly empty, one other person at bar, waited 30 minutes and still no waitstaff checked on us. Ended up leaving due to lack of service.

The pancakes were no flavor. They need more flavor and more spice to there food. This was breakfast.

This is certainly not a fancy restaurant, but good prices. The menu is not elaborate but they offer simple food with a very friendly wait staff.

Nice restaurant that had great ribs. Would go back there for the ribs. Lot of parking. Prices were average.

It suffers greatly from being connected to the Wyndam Gardens which is a terrible, run down motel. It spreads to the Loon. People are very nice but the atmosphere is bad and the food only OK.

We do have a few items such as venison chili and buffalo burgers, but the menu has changed significantly. We have great prime rib and lemon crusted walleye just to name a few. Hope to see you soon!

Many, many miles away! The Georgian Mall is located in Buford, Georgia while the Loon River Café is in Sterling Heights, Michigan. Unless there is a Loon River in Georgia I am afraid you are miles away.

Not sure what the cost of the water park would be, if any. With that being said, you could definitely go for just dinner.
