Thrilled to discover this great little restaurant. It's size belies what awaits you inside. Not only were we delighted to meet the friendly owner, our meals were delicious, homecooked with loving care and well priced to boot. Definitely worth a visit. You won't be disappointed.

This place is fantastic. You have to really look for it, but it sure is worth the search. Everything is made from scratch. The freshness and quality of the food is amazing.

My family had been looking for a really good non franchise cheeseburger in the area around our cottage. We had heard of the Head Lake Eatery, but we had never been. It's been renamed the Head Lake Grill, we finally stopped in to give or a try. Now, do not let the appearance of the place turn you away. It's... More
