Very disappointing and this is the third and last time we will go to the Bistro. The first two times I gave them the benefit of the doubt, not any more.

We went to dinner tonight at the Bistro with another couple who eat there at least twice a week. This was our first time there and were looking forward to a lovely dinner. After over an hour waiting, we noticed tables who arrived after us being served their dinner. When I said something, our waiter huffed away and then returned... More

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 Drawbridge Bistro is the renovated restaurant inside the Edgewater Inn. The views of the Pine River are beautiful. The wait staff is very friendly and the food is wonderful! My daughter and I had breakfast here before the Boyne Thunder started. I had the gluten-free pancakes. It is so nice to have gluten-free offered. My pancakes tasted exquisite-which doesn't... More

Same owner and chef just bigger space and a nicer kitchen. One of the many good restaurants in Charlevoix, Mi. 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.
