Soup, sandwich lunch which was ok but one of the pans of dessert blackberry something was empty 15 min before next seating and was told by staff they didnt want to bring out new dish this close to next seating but then someone went and got a lady a dish if it. Strange concept as to why they couldn't bring out new dish.

Love this place! They are doing so much to preserve native Michigan ecology. Their outreach, education, and children's programs are some of the best. Well worth the drive! I am so lucky to live in the area.
