I had the Salmon dinner and was very disappointed at the size of the meal. Very small piece of Salmon,. Tasteless, tiny boiled potatoes, without any seasonings. Not worth the money,. The salad was crisp and fresh. The tables are set up oddly. Long tables...More

This is another of our favorite stomping grounds in Clawson. They have great burgers, good beer specials, and a great view outside on the patio. Their french fries are so good with ranch dressing! Yum!!

Great burger, far above average. Great dessert (apple pie, cheese cake). French fries not so special. Friendly service and nice environment. A good stop.

The food is all above average (shout out to the burgers and homemade soups), 3-4 stars. Draft beer selection is limited and most micros are bottle only, 2 stars at best. The patio is fantastic, indoor seating is cozy but acceptable, restrooms are small but...More

Seeing that they offered outdoor seating, we stopped in for lunch and other than that, I can't think of anything that was appealing about this restaurant. Service was extremely slow. No kids menu, so we paid $9 for an order of chicken tenders, $7 for...More
