We stopped in here for breakfast and the food was really good. It may not be much to look at but just overlook it! This is a one-man operation (at least today-off season). We got bacon, eggs, and biscuits and gravy. Very tasty! This place has many other things like golf cart rental, bait shop, and other various things. Give... More

We visited Pokey's for Breakfast as we heard they had delicious biscuits and gravy. Everyone enjoyed that dish. I ordered eggs, bacon, toast and hash browns and could not believe the portion size.

Pokeys Café is sure more than meets the eye!! Larry rents the fastest golf CARS (they go 12mph LOL) and serves up the best coffee and breakfast. From the outside the place doesn't look very big, but its a nice surprise when you step inside. If you stay at the Grand Rivers INN, which is a must, step across to... More

The "Open" sign was lit. The sign said Open from 7 until 10 ~ so we were greeted at the door to be told very nicely "It's 7 until 10AM" Really? Three hours a day? The lady recommended the cafe in the Market next door as a "very nice place to eat"

Ten of us were traveling across the country by motorcycle and stopped here for breakfast. We got good food, personable service and very reasonable prices. I loved this joint and would happily stop here again.
