We took the family for dinner. The food was very good, the wait staff was very friendly. The hot ham and cheese was served on soft bread and was very good. I had the chicken wings, which were good and crispy. The only drawback is to find parking in the busy downtown area.

We went to the Hunter's Ice Festival in Niles, Mi on Saturday, it was so wonderful. We stopped at The Nuggett Grill for lunch, it was fabulous. Great prices, the food was wonderful and the staff was great.

The food is reasonably priced, the drinks are good, the staff is nice and the service is good. It's family friendly but great for a date night with the hubby.

Great home style food with great beers and wine to accompany. We had fish and chips, burgers and winds and all came away full and happy. California cosmos had my daughter particularly happy! Very friendly staff and would call in again if in the area.

Really nice atmosphere. We ate there for lunch the day after Thanksgiving and it was all decorated for Christmas. We were promptly seated and our drinks delivered quickly. The menu was pretty large and the food was good. This is not fine dining, but it was good.

Their food is quality, although not "wow, I'm glad I ate there". Good service, fairly inexpensive, worth the trip.

I liked the atmosphere. It was cozy. I ordered a burger and it was okay. I preferred flame grilled burgers over griddle fried burgers. I really liked the fried green beans as a starter. Those were good. We went on a Saturday evening and I was surprised it wasn't very busy. Not much to choose from in Niles, but this... More

Back in my hometown for a mini class reunion for my wife. Stopped here for dinner. Nice menu selection. I had Smothered Chicken which came with a salad, wild rice, and vegetable. Two chicken breasts nicely done. Service was very good. It was moderately busy. Others had sandwiches which they remarked were also good.

The atmosphere is comfortable...but dated. But we love that it is right in town and we can go and enjoy each other's company over really good burgers. The servers are always friendly, as well. This is also a place my girlfriends and I like to meet to discuss things...and eat burgers. Everything we've ever tried here is good...but the burgers... More

We came here to eat, the waitress was very rude. We ordered some appetizers, they were wrong and she was mad at us for asking for what we ordered. They are eating while on. The main floor, right by the kitchen. They used to be the place to go, steer clear!

Hello, I would like to know whom was eating by the kitchen while on duty and what the service was. I dismissed a waitress for that very thing. Eating and then going to a table. They are to punch out and take a break. They are not to have tables while doing the break. I believe I know whom this... More
