West-Side of Cadillac, 'Passing Through M-115'
Larry Burke, 1986
In 1983, our restaurant found its beginnings when Mary and Larry Burke, a couple with a shared passion for food, purchased the place we now call home. Larry, an accomplished chef, dared to follow his dream and bring his culinary vision to life alongside his wife Mary and their four children. From the very start, a family-friendly atmosphere and a menu filled with passion became the heart and soul of our establishment.
Fast forward three decades since Larry's passing in '92, and our remarkable staff and family continue to uphold the vision that was set in motion. Our rallying cry remains "Bring the family home" because we believe that nothing brings families together quite like the serene beauty of Lake Cadillac paired with delicious meals prepared for everyone to enjoy.
What We're Known For:
A Menu That Brings Family Together.
"All around good quality food and generous portions. Recommend the prime stack. Staff very attentive. Beautiful setting by the lake. All 70s music for me was an awesome perk"
"What a true little gem of family restaurant nestled up in Cadillac. If the weather is good, I recommend that you sit outside right on the deck by the lake. The menu is pretty big. Usually that does not bode well for quality at family restaurants, but everything we had was really top notch. The fries especially were really good and crunchy and hot. French onion burger and patty melt were both really, really good. The service was great and the prices were cheap. You can really feel the family-owned vibe to the restaurant. This place is clearly cared for and effort goes in to continuing on the tradition of a 1950's sockhop-style diner."
"Great atmosphere, pretty view. The food was pretty good. We were entertained by the bird staring another table down!
Portions were fairly generous, except for the small waffle that was served with my brothers chicken & waffles. It was the smallest homemade waffle I’ve ever seen-was an appropriate size for a child."
