The Sportsman's has been a favorite of locals for many decades . Back in the 60s and 70s it was the place to go for pizza after every sporting event or movie. I moved away from the area but was "home" to visit family and friends . There are many new great new restaurants in Ludington but somehow we ended... More

Had the Ruben. Wasn't bad but it could have used more meat. Fries are good and beer is icy cold. Service is slow but it's off season and we weren't in a hurry

I must say, we left disappointed...To be fair, the last time ate there, about 8 years ago, the food was excellent. We are rueben people and the one here was excellent. This time the rueben was okay and the walleye was even less satisfying. Walking away, the best part for me was the breadstick and baby bakers. We will definitely... More

Stopped in for a beer and ended up with a few and a couple of their prime rib French dip sandwiches. A unique very old bar that's connected to the Mitten and Barley and Rye (A whiskey bar) and you can move about the three establishment at will. Unique decor in all 3 places. Bartender Kayla was very friendly and... More

Their food is usually great, especially the pizza. And if you go away hungry it's your own fault! Service is usually good, though once in a while it leaves a bit to be desired, the staff seems to have their set service areas and if you're not in their area you may be ignored. It's not common though, and the... More

Long wait to get a table, staff ignored us, finally got table at the back exit. Waitress was unenthusiastic and likely overworked. Forgot to check back with us and we had to go and finder to get silverware, ketchup, etc. Never offered to refresh drinks. Food was OK, again, nothing special. Since service was bad and food just average we... More

Our B&B host couple invited us to join them for supper at the Sportsman's. A very nice place to eat with great food. You could tell it was a favorite spot with people... it was busy!!

We ate lunch here and were able to get seated right away even though the place was very busy. They have a lot of tables. We ordered drinks and then waited awhile before the waitress asked about ordering food. Once we received our meals they were all very good. There were six of us and we had a variety of... More

Giving this review 4 stars because of their awesome cheese bread - which was a 5 star appetizer. But the burger I ordered...about a 1 star burger. Nothing special, frozen patty, nothing special. Crinkle fries were good. Hubble got Ruben and loved it. Service wasn't super fast or friendly but it wasn't the worst I've experienced.

Their pizza was awesome, thin crust, lots of toppings, plenty of meat, not doughy, well done. As a big critic of food I was very impressed, the 16 inch pizza fed 4 hungry guys and there was still some left over, one of the best pizza's I ever had!
