Love this Place

This is one of our favorite restaurants. The service is always wonderful. The food is fantastic. I have never had a bad experience and New Years Eve 2015 was no exception. We recommend this restaurant ofter and have never always had good reviews from our friends.

E.P.C.is a must do in Douglas,Mi. Great food and drink. Special occasions, or just because. Check out bubbles and bites on weekends.

Went with a group of 9, found out that although they don't take reservations, if you have a group of 6 you can call ahead for seating. All of the food was very fresh and well prepared. Frequented by all the locals.

Enjoyed a double-date here after Christmas - great atmosphere and service. Very classy, sophisticated feel and not terribly expensive. Was the perfect destination for what we wanted : drinks, an appetizer, and salads. Of course everything else on their menu was tempting too! The champagne margarita and kale & beat salad were the biggest hits at our table. Always a... More

I loved the Bloody Mary Bar and the Tapas Plate but did not appreciate the staff who seemed to cater to people they knew. The bartender spent much time enjoying the company of the people she was comfortable with - never told us the specials and took a long time cashing us out because she was visiting. If you want...

My husband and I had dinner here on a Wednesday night. Our Innkeeper called in a reservation, butt wasn't necessary as there were plenty of open tables. It was mid-week in December, so understandably so. Since we were celebrating our 40th anniversary, we ordered a bottle of wine which was specially discounted. It was very good. He ordered salmon which... More

We've been going this place for years and learned about it from word-of-mouth. Pleasant atmosphere with unique foods that reminds me of New York. Love the grillled mahi mahi! The best time to go is the evening ... but it is also the busiest. Lunch is OK, but nothing compared to the evening menu.

Matt Balmer and his team offer the best of West Michigan- an impressive wine list to compliment the delicious menu options, plus a friendly well versed staff at the bar and in the restaurant. The tuna is my go-to favorite, however there is nothing on the menu I haven't tried and loved. The s'more is a must for dessert and... More

Went to Everyday People for our fourth or fifth time. Over all they have been good meals but I have never understood the hype or the lines to get in. Something has to be pretty awesome to wait in line. This last meal was one of the worst meals I have ever been served in my life let alone at... More
