The Chick'n Coop is a nice break from a burger joint. Their specially is chicken and it's usually quite good. The walleye was disappointing. They have a nice, small salad bar, which sets them apart from many places in the area. Service is typically good.

The food is great, the staff is friendly and attentive. Newly remodeled makes the dining experience better than ever. The salad bar is a meal in itself, always stocked with fresh salads and veggies. Do yourself a favor and visit the Coop!

We ate here several times last summer and fall. The chicken is consistently good. Broasted chicken has a unique flavor, moist interior and nice crunchy exterior. They’ve improved their salad bar, and everything was fresh and tasty. What was surprising, though, was how good their...More

What a fun date night! The chicken was really really good and the sides were homemade for certain. The salad bar was modest but really fresh and just what I was craving. We were there for the Friday fish fry and it was really good!...More

We are a full service restaurant and bar in Dorset serving American cuisine. We make amazing Broasted chicken, as well as great steaks, seafood, burgers, sandwiches and salads. We are have a great salad bar. On Fridays and Saturdays, we have a house made prime rib. On Fridays, we do a 'fish fry', but we Broast our Cod, which makes it less greasy.
