The spread on Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter is really good. Lots of choices all kept at proper temperatures and all cooked or made well. The problem is you can't eat it all but get a real treat for your eyes. The dessert tables are also loaded with so many choices I get a stomach ache just recalling my visits. They... More

CW's has a Sunday brunch buffet, as well as a lunch buffet. Both have a wide variety of well-prepared items. I have also eaten here for dinner, and always enjoyed the meal. It is a quiet setting, with courteous service. CW's also has a reward card which helps you earn a free meal.

All were finished eating before mine came. Then we waited over a half hour for someone to pick up our check. Another server noticed us and took care of... More

We stopped at CW's for dinner not knowing what to expect. We had reviewed the menu online and found that they served a personal favorite so we were anxious. The decor is fresh and pleasant. Upon receiving the menu, we found a delightful and enticing choice of items. The prices are very low compared to other establishments in the area... More

I had breakfast and dinner here. The food was good, but the service was slow. They seem under staffed.

Food was wonderful each time. 10 of us came in for lunch. From appetizers, soup, sandwiches and pasta, we were all happy with our meals and prices. Food came out fresh, hot and... More

This restaurant has the best Sunday brunch in Alpena. You can get freshly made waffles and/or omelets which take only minutes to make. There is also a great variety of fruits, pastries, potatoes, and meats.
