Dark Horse Brewing Co

Reviewed By andyg_15 - Ludington, Michigan

What a fun place!! The entire ceiling is packed with hanging beer mugs....so many that apparently they are not taking new members!! But great to check out anyway and of course drink some delicious brews. Sampled many IPA's and they were great! Our sandwiches were tasty and the slaw especially yummy. On the same property is a bakery with the friendliest staff ever and the most amazing fresh baked breads with absolutely no preservatives!! Check it out!!

I can't eat doughnuts from a grocery store anymore. I also think they are to blame for some of my own excess fluff. Famous for the Nut Roll. But seriously, custard filled is the real deal. They offer many other things, cakes, pies, cookies, rolls, coffee, etc. Doughnuts the reason I go. If I ever move, I will just have to stop eating doughnuts.

Go early for your favorites. They are closed on Mondays and for a full week early each July.

I love that this place had super large size coffee. The sweets were also pretty good. The prices are comparable to any chain coffee shop so $20 on 2 drinks and 2 muffins with tip was pretty standard. I was just too excited about the jumbo size coffee I got. Definitely worth the money.

Schuler's Restaurant & Pub

For over 100 years, Schuler's Restaurant & Pub has kept it in the family - and beaten the odds. How rare is this achievement? According to Family Business Review more than 30 percent of all family-owned businesses survive into the second generation. Twelve percent will still be viable into the third generation, with three percent of all family businesses operating at the fourth-generation level and beyond. Schuler's, a four-generation, family-owned restaurant in Marshall, Michigan is an institution. Schuler's attributes its longevity to the foresight of our founder and the succeeding family members who have used their entrepreneurial skills to build a 100-year tradition of hospitality and fine dining.

I visited for an early dinner on a Sunday night while traveling. I went to the pub area thinking it would be faster than the dining room. I could not get waited on so asked to be reseated in the dining room. I had the broiled walleye with Brussels spouts, red skin potatoes and a glass of pinot noir. Once ordered the food was served quickly. The sprouts were buttery, salty and undercooked for my taste. Red skins were slightly undercooked also. Walleye was served with skin which makes that taste “fishy”. They brought me the wrong bill at the end and fuether delayed my departure. I would try this place again based on previous experience but not if I am in a hurry.

Zarzuela

Zarzuela offers an enticing, savory seasonal menu with creative, warm, spirited surroundings inspired by Spanish-Mediterranean cuisine and culture.

Reviewed By David F

I'm guessing they've never been to Spain and had real tapas. Ordered the meat & cheese plate to start. It was over 20 pieces of deli slices & came with 4 stingy razor thin slices of bread. Followed with the gambas (which were delicious) & asked for more bread, which they charge for, & got 5 more razor thin slices. Cut down on the portions and serve chunks of rustic bread, not a store bought baguette.

First, I was struck by how dirty the inside of the ice cream shop was. There were also flies everywhere. Some of the ingredients, like the milk, were stored in a dirty little glass front refrigerator that was within reach of the customers. It was hot and sticky inside, with no noticeable air conditioning. I ordered a flurry with Reese's peanut butter cups. I noticed right away that these were more like Palmer's peanut butter cups with waxy gross chocolate and powdered peanut butter. I couldn't eat it. I did exchange it for an ice cream cone (so I basically paid $5 for a small ice cream cone). There were garage sale type items for sale around the perimeter of the store, including VHS tapes. We ate outside and we did enjoy that since there are picnic tables in the shade and some playground equipment for the kids. It is right next to a train track, which was not running. I'm not sure if it's an active train track or not.

This isn't a place I would ever go to again.

Kate's Diner

Reviewed By Sue E - Wichita, Kansas

Kate's is usually pretty busy, a testament to the service, prices, and the very basic menu items. I've been there for breakfast but not lunch. They don't have dinner service. The cook happens right behind the counter on a flat top, fryer, and pop-up toaster. Prices are low, atmosphere is good. If they are busy, you're order may take awhile. So if you don't need a fancy breakfast and price is an issue, you should try Kate's.
