There is nothing average about our dining experience here. The specials offered made our choices difficult because of wht they have to offer. I have lunched there 4 times now and am totally excited about my next visit!

We loved the Bistro when it was in the Edgewater Inn! Our last visit was disappointing at the Country Club. The server was nice enough but forgot to bring soups at the appropriate time, never asked us if we wanted coffee or dessert, and seemed to be struggling. The whitefish was over cooked but the hamburger was enjoyed a lot.... More

I guarantee there is no harder-working chef in Michigan; if al is on the job (and I've never known when he was not!), you are going to get some great food. my last visit, a week or so ago, the pizza was quick and hot and very good; the drink was perfect & the service was outstanding; and the venue...

Al was a very hard working guy when he was in town. Since this restaurant moved, he had a lot more staff and they were not trained and gave horrible service. Also the back of the house also suffered as he was not there on several occasions I ate there. You can tell when he is there making your food... More

We joined friends for a dinner celebration at The Bistro because our friends are regular guests and have been raving about the food and service. While the portions were very generous (3 sides with each entree), our mushroom soup and risotto were over-salted to the point of not being able to eat those courses. On a very positive note, our...

I have several favorites on the menu. Sometimes service is slow but it is such a nice environment that it ceases to matter. The sliders are great, pizza is outstanding, the Maurice salad a classic from my lunches at Hudson's with my mom!

The Edgewater Bistro became so popular, they had to relocate to much larger quarters at the Charlevoix Country Club. This location is a bit off the main drag for tourists to find. The menu features a particularly large choice of offerings ranging from gourmet pizza and hand formed fresh meat burgers to full dinners with three side dishes included in... More

After being treated rudely at another area restaurant, we stopped to pick up something to take back to the hotel for dinner. Order was placed quickly and prepared with attention to our specific wishes. Attention was paid to our take out needs for cutlery, sauces, etc. Food was delicious except for the gnocchi which were the strangest I have ever... More
