On January 1, 1965, the Ambassador Restaurant opened under new ownership. The new owners, the Rossi family, had transformed the space from a tap bar into a restaurant that specialized in pizza and sandwiches. In 1978, the Ambassador was expanded into the space next door, and the second dining room was added. In January 2007, the Ambassador became a non-smoking establishment. To explain the history of the Ambassador and the unique murals that line the interior walls, the owners conducted research and wrote a poem detailing the story. The poem, entitled "Come Fill a Bumper," has since been printed on the cover of the Ambassador menu.
Absolutely my favorite restaurant in the entire world. I grew up down the road in Lake Linden, MI, and whenever I make a trip home, you had better believe the Ambassdor is going to be one of my stops. The food is always fabulous, and though the restaurant is often busy, it is well worth the wait. I am never disappointed with the service and fare here. Plus the atmosphere is great. Very reasonably priced as well. A definite must!
A MUST visit if you are in the Houghton/Hancock area! Best pizza ever! I normally don't like sausage pizza, but their sausage is Awesome! Garlic Dill bread is great and of course you have to wash everything down with a Fish Bowl! Great atmosphere and food at a great price!
Since i was a little kid ambassador has been the place to go, and for good reason. I would suggest this place to anyone who visits the copper country as it is a landmark place, and probably one of the best restaurants in the entire U.P., however it just doesn't have the atmosphere that i like to dine in, the food is a bit higher priced than i need to spend, and the service is decent at best.
One problem Ambassador has is there soda, they offer you a soda for 1.50 or so, and it is a very small cup filled to nearly the top with ice. After you take your sip of soda and are down to the bottom, you have to pay to get it refilled again! There subs and pizza are also priced more than needed making it hard to get a good price for a smaller about of people. Another thing that makes it hard to eat there is there are so many seats right in the walkways so you are constantly trying to dodge people, this sets off the waitresses who have to work that much harder to get to there tables and that slowly but surely takes down there moral.
Overall, i like ambassador, i will go there, but it could use some work.
