Calvelli's is a local, especially for their wet burritos. The atmosphere is 50's-ish, with old cars and such. They are located downtown Lapeer, behind Sherwin Williams, next to the Car Wash. Many people go to Calvelli's to sing in the evenings (beware -- some are terrible!!!!)
Castaways on Lake Nesessing has a great location, but poor house and only average food. The location is off the beaten path, so business is slow, and the hours are shortened. A more lively atmosphere and helpful staff would go far.
The Farm House Restaurant is located on M-24 across from KFC in Lapeer. It is a great place to get basic homecooked food. They have great soups and sweet potato casserole.
The Neverending Story used bookstore is located in Downtown Lapeer near National City bank. It is a great place to trade books, or just to go and buy some used books. It is a great place to stop before you head to the national chain stores for your book purchases. Be sure to call ahead to make sure they are open.
Hunters Creek Perennial gardens is located on M-24 in Lapeer. The selection is goos and the staff is knowledgeable. The biggest drawback to this place is the location. M-24 can be very busy there, and somtimes getting out of the drive can be a challenge, especailly if turning left. Worth a look for the avid gardner.
Located next to Big Lots on M-21, The Beaded Stamper has a nice selection of stamps. The staff is friendly enough, but the store is very small. It is hard to get unique stamps there, but for some more common stamps, this is the place. I would recommend calling ahead if you are looking for something specific.
The Polar Palace, located on M-21 in Lapeer, is a very fun place for kids and adults to ice skate. They have a nice rink, and decent snack bar and the building is overall very nice & clean. The prices are reasonable and the rentals are even pretty clean considering! We plan to go again soon!
Lenny Miller's is a local favorite, so this review is difficult to write. I was very disappointed when I went. The atmosphere was ok, but it seemed very dirty. The food was ok, but I wondered how sanitary the kitchen was, seeing the salad abr and other areas. I expected a lot more from Lenny Millers. Overall, it was ok.
This is a decent hall for having a wedding or other event. it is not glamorous by any means, but it has been improved in the past 10 years. In the winter months they hold the flea market there, so you can check it out on a Sunday morning. They also have bingo there on Tuesday nights.
Lapeer Rent All, located on M-21 near Walmart, has everything from Helium tanks, to wedding fountains, to bleachers & wood chippers. They have great party supplies, including a great selection of coordinating napkins, plates & balloons. If you are having as party or doing some huge lawn project, go there and see if they can help.
