We have had meals and beers here plenty of times and every time the food is great and so is the service. Come in around Friday night and the week during the big canoe race and your gonna wait a while. Definitely worth the wait.

The Spike Burger was very good. Check out the Snake Nuts cocktail on the drink menu. Would recommend this restaurant for a burger and a beer.

Excellent hamburgers. Great home town atmosphere. Friendly staff. Definitely will go there again. My son and I had hamburgers made to order and fries plenty of food for the price. Local establishment, not a chain.

Good little bar / restaurant in downtown Grayling. Lots of memorabilia and pictures of the annual Au Sable canoe races. Have to try to the Spike burger. Good choice of beers with a nice family atmosphere. Service was timely and very polite. Lots of locals go there and there can be a little bit of a wait. I would recommend... More

Burgers are very good. Other items can be hit or miss. Good beer selection. Attentive wait staff. Very convenient location. The "meeting place of the north".

The "world famous" Spike burger was a good bar burger but not the best I've ever had, the chilli was bland. I wouldn't be afraid to go back though, we sat at the bar and the bar staff was very friendly

We have traveled through Grayling many times over the years but seldom stayed there. This trip was different in that we were on a 'color tour' of the fabulous "top of the Mitten" and were able to book a room locally and, of course, had an opportunity to try some of the local fare. Keg 'O' Nails was one of... More

We looked for somewhere here on trip adviser and after reading reviews we selected Spikes. All 4 of us had the Spike burger, 2 w/onion rings, 1 star fries and 1 waffle fries. We all really enjoyed our meals and well the drafts were good on tap and the mixed Spike Nuts was awesome. For a smaller tavern style place... More

I guess this the place to go when in Grayling. It was Friday night so had to wait. Not much space to wait in but okay. Service was good and the waitresses were so busy. Staff was pleasant. Food was good.

My goodness if you live there or just visiting it's the number one place to eat hang out and enjoy your company. The sign says it. It's the meeting place of the north. Food is really good. Pricing is great. Service is great. We love Spikes!
