This place is a blast from the past -- in a good way! The service was friendly, patient, and personal. The menu is enormous and features every kind of ice cream treat imaginable, as well as dozens of flavors of Hudsonville Ice Cream. My "cherry amaretto swirl" was delicious. Prices are the lowest I've seen in 20 years, and small portions are available. Wish there was a place just like this in every city.

Absolutely awful from top to bottom. The wait staff was incredibly rude and ignored us multiple tables for long periods of times while she was seen lounging around at the bar. The wait times in between ordering drinks, food and the arrival these items were ridiculously long. The table next to us was served a steak that was unfit to eat yet the server took at least five minutes to suggest a replacement which took almost 20 minutes to receive. The food was horrendous. I am becoming nauseas just thinking about the 'Chicago style pizza' that was thin crust with some sort of cinnamon based sauce. I regret not telling the staff that the vast majority of people who hear Chicago style pizza imagine deep dish, stuffed pizza. The opposite of thin crust. The Mac and cheese was incredibly bland. I will never eat here again. Ever.
Went there for a birthday dinner. The inside was beautiful, however service was not very good. The waitress didn't listen well, was forgetful, didn't know the menu, and brought our food out at different times. The food itself was hit and miss. The steak and sweet potato were great. Bonus points for having two hearted ale on tap! The beet salad was very disappointing. It was made with iceberg lettuce and sugary craisins. The cheese and avocado were lacking, the spinach was nearly non existent. The gold coast pizza had really good toppings, but there was hardly any sauce on it. It made the whole thing dry and hard to enjoy. The birthday chocolate sunday was homemade and delicious. They potentially have a really good thing going in there, but the details just didn't come together.
Fish Tacos And Chitown Burger Were Good. Wait Staff Friendly And Attentive. Only Real Complaint Is No Draft Beer Even Though They Had Several Taps. Hardly Anyone In The Place On Saturday Night During Msu/U Of M Game. Not Sure How They Will Stay Open.

If you are expecting authentic Chinese and Thai restaurant, keep on going. BUT, for the area, they do have pretty good selection and they tasted pretty good. It's a family owned business, and service was friendly. Their beef lomein was good, wonton soup pretty decent. They have good hot chili oil, to spike the food a bit. All in all, good food for the area but do not come expecting really authentic.
Fed up! Not sure what has happened to this place! We have been coming to the resturant for a very long time and this past year the service has gone down hill! So disappointing! Yesterday, we waited 15 minutes to be seated, 30 minutes just to get our soup and another 50 minutes for our meal. A Tuesday night. Not overly busy. 3 waitresses working. This is not the first time this has happened. We decided to give it another try thinking maybe they were just having an off day the last 2 times! Nope. While sitting there waiting, we saw one family, who had already eaten their soup, get up and walk out without even paying. Another older couple were standing at the register waiting to pay...no one came to them, so they walked out. Another man came in to pick up a take out order and was standing and waiting for at least 20 minutes...he also walked out. Tables around us remained dirty the whole time we were there, which was almost 2 hours! It was almost like our waitress was doing the dishes...waiting on people....and cooking the food all by herself. And takeout is a joke. When you call in an order, they tell you it will be ready in 20-25 minutes. You get there and you still have to wait another 20-25 minutes everytime! Ive come to the conclusion that they start making it when you arrive to pick it up. Poor poor service. If you are hungry and in a hurry this is not the place to go! I honestly felt bad for the happy, hungry people walking in. -Sorry, but Never again.
Perhaps the worst Chinese we have ever had, and definitely the worst Thai ever. THE FOOD In desperation we ate in Houghton Lake one night of our trip. We drove around for nearly and hour and settled on this place for take out. The Chicken and Broccoli was the heavily breaded and sauced slop you'd find in any shopping mall food court. But the Thai dishes took the cake....I have never seen the use of corn starch based sauce in Thai food. They have taken bad Thai to a new low. THE SERVICE Very friendly, mostly worked by the children of the owners. THE ATMOSPHERE Set in an old misshapen house...it was quaint, but also very unkept. I really feel sorry for those who have to eat out in Houghton Lake. There are no real choices it seems.

We've been coming here for decades to get the tried-and-true buster bars. They make them in-house. And although we're glad to see the round versions back, we were sad to discover that they're super stingy with the fudge now. Much like Girl Scout Cookies, the price goes up and you sadly get less than before. I'll give it another try before the season ends to give them a chance to redeem themselves. If they don't, there's a new creamery down the road that may help start a new tradition. Get it together DQ!
