Aerie has moved to the top of my "short list" of best area restaurants. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone visiting the Grand Traverse area. And at this time of year with a little fall color added to the panoramic view, I was quite awestruck by the view. Little did I know the ensuing meal would have the... More

Aerie is located in the tower on the 16th floor of the Grand Traverse Resort. We had a resort package and a 3 course meal was part of the package. We thought it would be a soup or salad, entree and dessert and were pleased when we were told we could have 6 courses (3 each) of anything we wanted.... More

We last visited on Christmas Eve. The staff could not be more helpful and friendly. The steaks and sides served hot and were amazing. Would recommend visiting during sunset in the summer as well for awesome views.

The brunch comes with one complimentary drink. Very good mimosa. The buffet itself was great too. Omelet station, pastries, salad, egg dishes, cherry waffles, smoked fish... More

We really loved the view and it was a romantic dinner place. The food was just so so. The crawfish cake that my husband had was very dry like it was cooked too long and his half a chicken must have come from a Cornish game hen, very small!
