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

This was an excellent breakfast with the exception of the coffee. Everything else was wonderful and the view is excellent, overlooking the channel that leads from Round Lake to Lake Michigan, passing thru the bridge that opens on the half hour and allows for the passage of the ferry boats of Beaver Island as well as pleasure craft and sail...

We were wondering if we would run into what other recent dinners posted; long waits, wrong food etc, but that was not the case on a Thursday 5:30 visit. The dinning room is very large and was close to empty, maybe 4 or 5 tables occupied with 2 more groups on the patio. If you want a window table over... More

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

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
