This was our third stay at Cocoa Cottage. Larry and Lisa are very welcoming and have a beautiful Arts and Crafts home that they have restored to its original beauty. Larry makes the most amazing breakfasts that always include chocolate zucchini bread and a thick chocolately spread. The rooms are lovely and comfortable, but I won't say which is my favorite. I want to make sure that room is available next year! :)

French dip is the goodness. 3 other ppl eating and not a bad bite to be had. Really nice outdoor dining area and just all n all a must stop.
So good and such a cute setting. I loved my experience here! The sandwiches are delicious and the specials are awesome. I got a lot for the price. Awesome service and the garden is absolutely gorgeous.
1st time dining here...came in for lunch. I just moved from Florida and coming from a busy town with hundreds of different restaurants, this place is AMAZING!!!! And so far tops all the sandwich shops I've been to back home... Will be back again and possibly my new favorite new place to eat as I consider myself a foodie. My husband is from Whitehall and remembers coming here long before he moved to Florida... He loves the place as well!

Reviews:
At first glance it is a cute little diner, after you sit down you start to notice how dirty the soup warmers and the floors are. Broken cabinet doors at the waitress stand. As for the food.... I thought it was wierd that my wife and daughters food came out 5 minutes before my son's and mine. The chili dogs came out cold and the cheese was not even melted (maybe thats just the way I do them). My burger bun was BURNT on the bottom and at first i thought it was no big deal but then I thought to myself that these buns were toasted on the grill, So the cooks had definitely ignored the fact that it was inedible. Prices were not bad for the amount of food you got.
service=neg. food, do you really want to do that to your body?
I loved this little place! Some of the reviews were really bad, but I took a chance anyway and was so happy that I did! My service was excellent, my food was a party in my mouth and the restaurant was very clean (yes, the bathroom, too). I had the stuffed hashbrowns with homemade rye toast. It was enough food for three meals for me, so I'm having some more this morning at home. The homemade bread was so delicious that I bought a loaf (a real bargain at $3.00) to bring home. It is December, so not high tourist season. I was on a little pre-holiday getaway so I imagine most of the diners were locals. I liked that. It felt homey and welcoming.

Sam’s Grille and Pizzeria

604 E Colby St

Reviews:
Food was excellent and not your usual Pizza joint food. They had traditional pizza and then Mediterranean dishes as well. It was the best of both worlds.
We went to Sam's this past week and once again we chose it based on Yelp reviews. We arrived there and the server was as sweet as could be. She came over right away to help us. We decided to order the mediterranean sampler (not sure that's what it's called) for 2 people even thought there were four of us since we were all ordering the soup also. I will say their portions are more than ample. We got beef, chicken and kafta on the platter. If I'd only ordered the kafta, this review may be a little different than the one I am about to give. The beef was tough, the chicken was dry but I loved the kafta, it was very flavorful, tender and cooked perfectly. I will say that I've had much better mediterranean food in other places but I hope this place makes it. It's nice to have some ethnic food in Whitehall.
I'm 57 and have eaten at many fine restaurants. This place has the most amazing flavors and food I've ever experienced and I wasn't even that hungry when I walked in the door. I'll be back, when I can eat more of this tasty, expertly prepared food!

Buzz’s Lakeside Inn

5700 Scenic Dr

Reviews:
Beautiful view. I can't say that the food was an unforgettable experience, it was just standard fare. Buzz was introducing himself to his guest, which I thought was a nice gesture.
We entered the patio, my friend inadvertently let the door shut in front of a server who snapped " Thanks for slamming the door in my face, I'm your server , hope YOU have a fun night ! " He and his manager thought this was funny . I did not. He was NOT our server. Patio was dark, no silverware, the Smoked Trout dip only tasted of cream cheese. The roasted beet salad was good but not any better than the Lake House in Muskegon. I found that the menu was un-inspired as was the service
Had a wonderful casual dinner on the patio. Views of the lake beautiful. The beer battered asparagus appetizer was delicious and plenty for 3 or 4. It had 8 big spears. The Great Lakes perch dinner sweet and perfectly cooked. Key lime pie not to be missed! Servers attentive and very friendly. Highly recommend.

Reviews:
From Stone Mountain GA and go to a traditional Mex restaurant there and being here feels, tastes, drinks, just like home!!!!!!!!!!! Visit there, remember some of the Tex Mex chains that you might be use to do not serve traditional Mex so be ready for the real thing.
The service was lacking a little, the server didn't even pretend he wanted to be there. The house Margarita used gold tequila, which does not a traditional Margarita make, and also came with an orange wedge (?). I mean, they want their spin on it and it was good, so whatev. But the boyfriend and I tried out a veggie combination without cheese. I was thinking we'd get some chili sauce, maybe veggies, etc. Our meals were actually just tortillas and refried beans. I was in physical pain after eating this heaping plate of beans.
What a gem! The service was great, the fresh chips and salsa were delicious, there's a full bar, and the menu is extensive. The Ranchero burrito was possibly the best burrito I've ever eaten. Don't be put off by the location. Some really great restaurants can be found in strip malls and this is one of them!

Big John’s Pizza

104 N Thompson St
Whitehall, 49461
Reviews:
Big Johns Pizza is my standard that I measure all pizza by. It's truly the gold standard in my book. I get a large supreme and add bacon and onion and it's amazing. My only complaint is that they would use fresh green pepper...I think they use frozen. Also fresh mushrooms rather than canned would take this pizza to an unbeatable standard. I would gladly pay an extra couple bucks for the fresh vegies. All in all Big Johns is my favorite pizza and I highly recommend it. Wish they had a GR location.
Since my wife and I live in town now, we've ordered from Big John's several times, not really so much because we love their pizza (we don't) but it's really the only game in town and we've come to accept that our beloved small town just doesn't have great pizza. Big John's has served a purpose for us, in a small way, to fill the void that has been left by all those wonderfully delicious pizzas we've enjoyed back in Chicago for so many years. Now, we may have to eliminate our only local pizza option. We've put up with their high prices and low quality food, until now. We've had enough. Called for delivery this past weekend (I normally pick up) - $30 for a large pizza and 2 sides (ouch). I was told it would be delivered within 30-40 minutes. After 90 minutes I called to check on the delivery. I was told the driver couldn't find my house (thanks for calling, driver) and he should be returning to the restaurant soon. The girl on the phone asked if I wanted the driver to attempt another delivery. Uhh, no. I don't think I want to pay 30 dollars for a cold, 2-hour late, mediocre pizza thanks. I was admittedly angry (but never one to shoot the messenger). The girl offered me a discount on my next order as compensation. Frustrated and hungry, I told them to forget it. Really disappointed guys.
Greatly over priced but OK pizza. Tourists seem to love it.

Chen’s Chinese & Thai

Reviews:
Buffet, along with the menu items, are very satisfying. Buffet is a little small. Prices are average.
Meh. I've experienced better is correct... We headed here after Mi's Adventure because the kids were starved for an all you can eat. The food was ok. Hot and sour soup is good but I like it sour. The selection was pretty good. The waitstaff was prompt considering she was the only one waiting. There were 6 tables full of people at 7:30 on a Thursday. Oooo, Lo Mein! The kids love that. Well, apparently, if they are within an hour of closing, they aren't going to restock the buffet. We emptied it out. Good for them, but the kids were a bit hungry still. Inside was a little sketch. Price was ok (10 bucks for dinner). I would have driven into Muskegon and found another place had I known. Keep driving.
We ordered a couple meals to try there. When we brought it home, couldn't tell what was what. All was covered in a greasy orangish red sauce that tasted like ketchup and Siracha mixed together. Whichever one was The bean curd with Szechuan didn't have a bean curd! Clearly frozen veggies since some were still frozen while the others were over cooked. There is no to describe the taste. One of the worst foods I have ever tried! Oh, also, they don't accept any cards. Cash only. Wish they would have mentioned that when I placed my order over the phone.
