Really liked Edgewater Bistro when it was in Charlevoix. Went there today with two friends for lunch. What a disappointment! The servers were not helpful, but tense and unfriendly. One acted like we inconvienced her by stopping in for lunch. We ordered and waited over one-half hour for our meal, without being told why there was such a long wait.... More

The mix for the margarita is freshly made with lemons and oranges and good tequila and a little Triple Sec. my wife had the whitefish, I had mushroom soup and sushi- a crab and shrimp tempura roll and our companion...

This restaurant had a beautiful setting and delicious food. However, the waitstaff and cooks still haven't ironed out getting the food to the people at their tables. We waited nearly an hour for dinner, and probably 30 minutes just to get bread on the table. The waitresses kept apologizing, but it didn't seem to be their fault. Admittedly there was... More

Finally, not sardined in and room to breath. Your going to need the space because they give you a lot of food. Pretty high quality with everything I have had there and I've been there at least 30 times since I have a vacation home on Lake Charlevoix. A little more of a drive, but the outdoor seating overlooking the... More

Unfortunately, it was prom night so we decided to eat in the bar area to avoid the loud DJ music. The food was very good. I had the salmon and my wife had the filet mignon. The views of the golf course with a setting sun were beautiful. We will be back again.

We have always loved the food at this place. It was in a tiny location on the water and this last month moved into a larger space at the Charlevoix Country Club. We are excited for them, because they always had the ability to serve more folks and now they have the chance since the restaurant is open to the... More

Edgewater Bistro was in a nice location overlooking the bridge in Charlevoix, but is no longer there. They had a great chef and it was always a pleasure to eat there. Too bad. Rents keep going up so businesses are moving out. Not much reason to stop in town anymore.

The Bistro has moved to Charlevoix Country Club, but is open to the public with its same great menu. The Bistro offers a diverse menu and the food is always outstanding. You need to take your appetite with you or be willing to share as the portions are generous. Our friends and family always want to go to The Bistro... More

The cook is the reason and he is leaving for the Country Club. I have never had a bad meal there. It is our favorite restaurant to take our friends to.

Their menu is very good. My only complaints are the space is cramped and it can be very noisy. But, that's because it is so very popular
