There was a bit of a wait, but it was totally worth it. Best cherry pie EVER! Don't expect a huge portion; it's just enough for you to be craving more. I had to mention this first because it was the main event, but the rest of the food is very good, too! Get their cherry-ade, it's yummy, doesn't need a lemon slice. I got the 1/3 burger cooked medium, the perfect size and tasted delicious. I added cherry salsa and onions. Next time I would have left out the onions, not necessary, took away from the salsa, which was very good. And lastly, cherry pie a la mode. You'll have a pie-gasm, pie lovers. Incredible! The service was incredibly sugary sweet and they all have to wear cheesy red dresses. Poor girls. The Hut is only open in the summer, so get a couple pies and freeze em!
Our family of 4 are at the cherry hut for lunch. It has an up north reputation but I thought it was a little lack luster. The food was ok and the server was slow and distracted. Just thought it was ok overall.
We stopped in to have cherry pie. I thought it was great! It was warm, fresh and tart. My husband thought it tasted like cherry pie filling from a can. We also bought jam and dried cherries to take home. The restaurant was built in 1922 and looks like it hasn't been updated in at least 40 years but it has a super homey feel.
I ate here twice in the summer of 2014; once for a sit down meal midweek In mid July and once got a takeout pizza Friday of Labor Day weekend. Both time the pizza was excellent - much much better than Pampanos at Crystal Drive and US 31. The pizza pickup experience left much to be desired. At least three people in line In front of me waiting for pickup - and I think it took nearly 20 minutes, All the time knowing my pizza was getting colder on a rack somewhere in the back. They were super busy. But it very frustrating.
Came here for dinner. Got the smothered chicken breast. Wife got a calzone. Chicken was okay but very small. Too much melted cheese. French fries were terrible as was the bite of calzone I had. The fountain coke was decent with a solid syrup to seltzer ratio. Dinner roll that came with the chicken was the most redeeming component of the meal. It was dense and delicious. The atmosphere was perhaps the strangest of any restaurant I've ever dined at. There was no music and a doorbell rang everytime an order was up which created a tense vibe in the large hollow dining room. They had Jeopardy on the TV, which excited us at first, but we soon realized the subtitles and volume were both off. We couldn't find out the correct answers! Service was mediocre. Would not dine again. Ironically, I left with the name of the restaurant.
While on vacation at Crystal Mountain we visited Hungry Tummy twice. The first time for lunch and second time for dinner. I have to be honest and say that the first time we almost walked out because it was completely empty and the Christmas decor was still up (my visit was in February). Service : outstanding the wait staff was very friendly and knowledgable on menu items. Food: great, tried the BBQ wings, broasted chicken, taco pizza and deep dish pizza, french dip sandwich were all great. The one thing that I didn't like was: when my children asked for a refill on his kid soda they said that kids refills were not included. I would have preferred that the kids meal price was a bit higher, so we didn't have to worry about silly things like this. Don't want to end review on a negative note staff and food were great!! Not a 5 star because the place looked a bit outdated.
This place simply is the best pizza joint anyway. I have not had it in 6 year due to living in Chicago, but they have managed to keep the flavor consistent as it the last time I ate here. Great job and I highly recommend this place.
Standard pizza at a reasonable price. Surly service. Good for a quick meal, but I'd almost prefer a frozen pizza than the sullen teens behind the counter. I realize it's hard to get good help in the north woods, but at least greet the customer when they come in!
The 3 cheese breadsticks are amazing and big!! You won't need a large pizza after eating them. Pizza sauce is more on the salty garlic side rather than the sweet tomato type of sauce.
