Hey Elk Rapids! Y’all kicked out butts!! After serving over 1000 ppl this weekend we are out of food!!!! 😬 we will be closed tomorrow. Opening back up Wednesday!! Thanks for the ass whoopin!! 😉


Holy cow what a busy 4th weekend! Thank you all for coming in! Thanks for the patience as we had our busiest days of our 41/2 years. Please remember when you go out to eat that we all do our best to give you our best. This business is tuff and we could not do it without our great staff. Please understand that you may have a wait on your meal anywhere you go. Summer is crazy in our small town. I know everyone in elk rapids is doing there best. So be kind remember some of the staff as been working for days straight and are tired and hot and stressed. Show love to one another. It really makes our day go better. You’re on vacation in a beautiful area. Chill, relax, drink another cup of coffee, chat with your family and friends. Oh and if you spike that coffee with your own Baileys or something yummy share with the rest of us!!!! 😉😍

We closed early Sunday to attend a dear mans funeral that was a customer of ours. Walter was a sweet man. His granddaughter would bring him in and he was always dressed so dapper and from what Leah and I learned today is that he loved his late wife very much and he loved life and had great words of wisdom. Leah and I agreed that we took learn to have fun not matter what you may be doing and love with all you have away from this 91 yr old man. Thank you Walter for letting us be a part of your life. Rest In Peace. ❤️ the local family.
