What a gem this small town has with JJ Rubys. Diverse American fare with nightly specials. Food good quality and larger than normal portion sizes. Home made desserts. Prices very reasonable. They also have a liquor licence so you can enjoy a coctail, if you want. Family friendly, pleasant employee, speedy service

Stopped here while on a Michigan cross state road trip with a group of 11. Picked it based on reviews. Glad we chose J J Ruby's. Quaint, friendly and clean family restaurant with good food. The flat iron steak special was delicious.
