This restaurant offers beautiful views of the Grand Traverse Bay area while enjoying your meal. We were here for brunch and the food was wonderful. There may not have been a ton of options but what they did have was worth it.

Spent the weekend in Traverse with my girlfriend. Staying at the Grand Traverse in the tower was awesome but dinner at the Aerie was poor. I saw the reviews but ignored them. The walleye was bland, I couldn't believe it. The waitress, Kimberly was awesome but what a horrible overpriced experience Beware......

My husband and I decided to take a romantic weekend getaway and booked dinner at Aerie for the evening on Saturday night at 7:00 pm. The restaurant is very lovely. Soaring views of the entire Grand Traverse area, along with a beautiful view of the bay. The decor is contemporary but very tastefully done. They have a series of small... More

We came here for our one year anniversary dinner. This restaurant has a spectacular view of Traverse City and Grand Traverse Bay. It is located inside the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa. This dinner was good, but took over 2 hours to get through four courses. Their "beer-amisu" was a very good dessert.

Horrible service and horrible meal. No consideration was made on the bill for any of the meals (all of our steaks were tough and grisly, one however, was completely inedible). A phone call to the restaurant manager the next day went unanswered. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone unless you just want drinks and the view.

Watching a sunset over Grand Traverse Bay from Aerie is a good as it gets! Good conversations happen when you witness the close of the day on such a grand scale. And also good moments of silence…. top it off with the TC cherry pudding and an attentive server…it does feel like you are inching heavenward.
