The Cooks’ House

The Cooks’ House restaurant was opened in 2008 to celebrate the bounty of agriculture and artisan made products that are found in Northern Michigan.

It is our mission to use, promote and celebrate local sustainable foods. We invite you to join us and taste the difference that comes from practicing a field to plate philosophy.

Come with us and experience how much better food can taste when made from products that come from the farmers, growers, and artisans who call Northern Michigan home.

I bet even with the cookbook I couldn’t make a meal as amazing as what I had at your restaurant last night, 🙂

Great cookbook

Yes!! Where do I find it online to order? P.s. A signed copy would be solid!😉

I’ve used your cookbook for years. My favorite recipe is the 7 hour leg of lamb with gnocchi and fava beans. 🍽

Also wondering how to buy!!

Where can we get this? Horizon?

Ohhh gift ideas!

How can I get a signed copy?

Jerry Crago

How do we order?

COME ON! Yesterday we reposted a similar post from The Little Fleet, and now this?! We stand with all of you @rarebirdbrewpub.

I am out of words. We need to do better. It is unacceptable to treat others this way.Our staff has had enough. Just like others, we are speaking out. Our staff has been SPIT ON, verbally abused, physically threatened and are physically and emotionally drained. They are here as essential workers just trying to do their job and make a living. They shouldn’t have to deal with assholes ever, but especially during a global pandemic. If you can’t find basic human decency and respect our rules please don’t come here. We don’t want your money. We will be just fine surviving on kind people’s business and support.
We will be closed on Wednesdays for the indefinite future to help our employees take a breath and recharge.
We thank everyone that has been kind and understanding the past few months as we are constantly changing and evolving with new rules and developments to keep everyone safe.
Please remember to thank the staff next time you see them. They love serving you and seeing your faces (behind a mask).

Good for you for standing up to the ugly. We had it early on, but our rules and stance in enforcing them has taken hold and we rarely have trouble any more. Stay strong, we are with you!

This is so sad. You shouldn’t have to put up with that abuse. Hang in there! Thank you for being here.

They deserve more respect than ever now, without them working we would not have a night out or a sense of being normal again. Total crap anyone would disrespect a server! If you have issues with the way things are going you can take it up with the virus itself since the servers have 0 to do with creating any of the issues.

Love you guys. We came up from IL in late July and observed all the rules. We had a great time, so I can’t understand the sheer douchbaggery that some people show the service industry, especially during a global pandemic. Sadly it’s a sign of the times were people take the cue from others that it’s alright to be an entitled prick. Be safe!

So sorry to hear. We support you 1000%. This is not acceptable. Thank you for the excellent beer , food and service you provide.

Going through the same thing at our store. We stand with you too! We are yelled at way too many times in a day.

When will this end? The mask requirement is for everyone’s safety! So sorry you have experienced this. Very sad.

It’s not unreasonable to expect basic human decency. Sadly, so many are lacking.

I agree and have turned people away who do not wear a mask

Enough is correct! This breaks my heart.

You don’t deserve this. So sorry to hear it.

Full support here...🙏👍🏻

Good for you! We stand with you ! ✌️

I’m sorry this is happening. 💕

Enough!

#peoplesuck

Standing in solidarity! Thank-you!❤️☮️❤️
