Short story....served broasted chicken that was red inside, ate less than half of it, picking around the undercooked parts, pointed it out to waitress and she offered another piece of chicken (ahh, no thanks), then said she could take 10% off our bill. Now nothing...More

When in Manistee. Stop in to this place. A little off the beaten path but worth it. Service was awesome. Try the pepper jack crab soup - excellent! They also have bluegill on the menu.

It was a nice quiet meal. The waiter was attentive and the food was good as usual. The atmosphere is eclectic and comfortable. No rushing here if you want to take your time and relax. Casual.

You could spend all new night checking out the decorations at this bar! Had a great late night visit there with friends. Reasonable prices and fried apps to make your mouth water.

We've been to this out of the way bar a few times this summer. It's actually the oldest operating bar in Manistee so the décor is very interesting. I had the grilled salmon dinner each time as it's awesome. We enjoy playing Club KENO too....More

Even though we are quite familiar with Manistee, we had never heard of this place. Chicken was delicious, although it took a long time. We heard the waiter explain that they don't have enough room in the pressure cookers when they get busy. The salmon...More

The Painted Lady is located in Manistee, MI it is the oldest operating saloon in town. The bar and tin ceiling are original from when it was built back in the late 1880's. When Bob and Linda Venne bought the building in 1994 they turned it into The Painted Lady Saloon which is now well known for their broasted chicken and award winning home-made soup. They offer breakfast, lunch and dinner plus a full bar from open to close. With a wide variety of food to choose from it's the perfect stop for a good meal and a little bit of history.
