I have been driving my family to distraction trying to sort of 'verify' a misty childhood memory of a restaurant in Cadillac that we visited.Can anyone here help?
The year was probably 1956 or '57, maybe '58.I recall a rather nice restaurant that had a huge, steeply peaked ceiling with a lot of rafters in dark, interesting spaces that beckoned a small child who loved to climb.I recall intricate Windsor chairs big enough to actually play in if you had a good imagination.I feel that the place featured a lot of beautifully finished wood paneling and tables that were typical of the relationship to the logging industry in the area.
I believe this place was on the east side of Mitchell Street, north of the downtown area and that there was a quonset hut nearby, probably south of it.
This place was interesting enough to my parents and grandparents that we drove about 130 miles just to eat there, but we never went there again afterward, so maybe it wasn't worth the trip for them or it burned down or something.I have revisited the area numerous times and nothing rings a bell.
What was the name of this restaurant?What was this establishment's fate?If it's gone, can someone tell me where it used to be?
