THE place to go for a really great, freshly prepared sub sandwich! My favorite hands down is the Italian. Bread is freshly made and very yummy. Limited hours - but a great go to for lunch! Local owners. No seating so be prepared to take your sub to go!
Best subs around. The bread they make fresh go have one you won't be disappointed.
The best Deli style subs in the area. Highly recommended!

Union Coffee House & Cafe

Reviews:
Great food, Great smoothies, and a great wait staff!
The coffee is tasty and their green tea mint smoothie is a favorite of mine. I like to take a book in here and read while drinking my refillable coffee. Their drip coffee is rich and flavorful. I even bought a half pound of the Guatamalan ($10) and tried to emulate it at home... just not as good. The atmosphere is open and nice. The food is all vegan friendly and their eco friendly approach with silverware and plates is really plus. The staff is quiet, but nice.
Good food and good coffee. Also try the black tea!

Bucktown Tap

Reviews:
We wandered into Bucktown Tap and we are delighted that we did!! The spectacular food was only by the wonderful and friendly service! Make SURE to try the brussels sprouts appetizer. It is amazing. We tried three different types of burgers, and then spend a half hour arguing about whose was better. After a close though, the peanut butter and jalapeño jelly burger won!! Only 20 minutes from South Bend and Notre Dame. This is definitely worth the drive.
My husband and I stumbled upon this place two years ago and we are hooked. We drive more than a half hour just to have lunch or dinner at Bucktown Tap. The service is always great and the food is delicious. They have a way of making something as simple as a BLT phenomenal. I encourage everyone to give this place a shot!
What a nice surprise in downtown Buchanan. Great burgers, good beer selection. Very comfortable with good ambiance. Our service was top-notch as well.

I have not been here for awhile but stop whenever I can. Food is great and the beer is cold! Very friendly and competent help. Family type place but sit at the bar if alone. One of the better low key family places around. Varied menu and chicken is super. Have never been disappointed.
Food fair. Prices high. Service slow at first. Apparently, they were slow so had sent help home and then got busy. More help arrived while we were there. Spent $70 on our meal. Had another couple with us. Not sure how much they spent. Explained to the manager that we were hosting a cancer cookout fundraiser next weekend and wondered if they could donate a few to go boxes. I asked for 5 or 10, whatever they were willing to donate. I was told no.......not likely to ever return.
This is a great place for the whole family. It's been around forever and little has changed, which is good. The staff is very friendly and attentive and the food is delicious. I've had the Lake perch, fried chicken, and salmon. All good. The kids have enjoyed the fish tacos, spaghetti, and a turkey wrap without complaints. There is an attached pub in the same room, divided by a half wall, so not sure how it is in the evenings. I've only been here for early dinners. The dessert tray looks unbelievable but I haven't tried it yet. I'm usually stuffed after the great meal.

The Sweet Shop

Reviews:
Very friendly staff, always clean, great atmosphere. The shakes here are amazing, and the prices are reasonable. Would recommend to a friend, and would definitely come again: :^)
If you're craving something sweet, this is the place in the area. Everything about this place is old fashioned. The decorations are very cute and well fitting with the theme. The staff are very friendly and easy to talk to. I went with a group of my friends and we all got different desserts. I got the malt and my other friends got different flavored sodas. We all enjoyed our drinks. You get your money's worth when it comes to portions. the only down side is that the hours to the place are very random. Make sure to call in before you head over. Right now, they are closed until April.
I wish that I could give this place a higher review, but that is not the case. Yes, I agree that the lovely fixtures and interior give this place a nostalgic Americana feel, but there was one glaring issue that all this couldn't fix; the lady working behind the counter smoking in the doorway and the smell blowing back into the shop. I'm sure that the ice cream and every other sweet they serve there is delectable and delicious, but the harsh nicotine assaulting my nose ruined the whole affect. Sad thing is that I am a local (not some whiny out of towner)and this makes it hard to support local businesses when this kid of stuff happens.

Tasty Chen’s Restaurant

Reviews:
Chens, although not looking like much of a Chinese restaurant actually has a few good entrees. It is typical 'American Chinese' food (considering the clientele). I recommend the Singapore mei fun and orange flavor beef.

My fiancé and I were driving up from Chicago to Michigan wine country for the day and stopped in for brunch along the way. Food was great and so was the service. Order the breakfast sandwich, it's amazing! My fiancé ordered an omelette and enjoyed it too. The cinnamon roll is awesome as a starter. Enjoy!
Closed due to water damage. 8/30/15.
We were directed here by locals after a 5K when we were hankering for some breakfast. There were 8 of us, and while the center of the restaurant had multiple tables with 8 seats, the waitress didn't seem to know how to handle a party that large. The service was insanely slow (almost an hour for our food!). The WiFi was insanely slow and barely worked. The food was decent though.

Tabor Hill Winery & Restaurant In the Vineyard

185 Mount Tabor Rd
Buchanan, 49107
Reviews:
Wife and I have been here twice and have not been disappointed yet. This is one of a limited number winery's that have a restaurant on site. The menu is great and leverages both the local flavor and ingredients. I would recommend ordering wine by the glass, as they are a heavy pour. We are very much looking forward to enjoying many more great dinning experiences here. This is a great place for Michiana!
The food is inventive and cooked by chefs that truly know how to cook. It's not overly salted like at many restaurants, but it takes advantage of the full flavors of the foods and seasonings. And as for service, it's hard to beat Madge!
Love coming here and bringing friends here when they visit us in MI. The staff is very nice and knowledgeable. You can have about 6 free tastings from the different categories. Some of the wines are very tasty and ok on the price...what can be expected from a local winery. The restaurant is nice for a romantic dinner. The views of the winery are very pretty. I suggest getting there about an hour early for the tastings, then on to your romantic dinner.

Wheatberry Restaurant & Tavern

Reviews:
We really like this out of the way place. Next time you are headed to Harbor Country, take a beautiful ride through the countryside and treat yourself to a special establishment. The beer list is one of the best around. Outstanding BBQ and cornbread. My wife likes the Three Sisters. Not for me, but to each his/her own. Do yourself a favor and doggy bag part of your generously portioned dinner and have some of their yummy desserts.
Rich smokey flavor , ample selection of craft beer (bottles) in a nice location just north of town on Red Bud Trail along the St. Joe river. I had the full rack of Baby back ribs, sides of sweet potato fries, mac 'n cheese. Ribs were excellent, with some of the best smokey flavor. Two sauce choices, tangy and spicy (red), i preferred tangy. Sweet potato fries are a must, the mac 'n cheese was good but mostly a thick cheese sauce with some noodles. I'd look at getting beans next time. Save room for dessert, the blueberry crumble was delicious.
pleased to find a vegetarian restaurant. Tried the veggie burger yesterday and was surprised when they told me they did not make it in house. AMAZING! and that was yesterday...... today I tried the 3 sisters.....even better. Highly recommend this restaurant....especially to my vegetarian friends!

I love hilltop and eat there regularly, they have homemade soup everyday and the best breakfast around. They have a large selection and cater to all ages from happy face pancakes, big salads, wonderful sandwiches, or just a piece of pie and coffee. I would recommend you try it.
Great breakfasts and always tasty. Friendly and attentive staff. Lunch menu is good too.
If you need a bland meal, this world be the place for you. Unimaginative. Seems to be the hot place for retirees.
