We visited this area last week and visited several restaurants. The service was excellent, the steaks were excellent and the lobster bisque was better than any I've had in years. You get what you pay for at this restaurant

My husband and I had lightly blackened whitefish. Perfectly done. I had garlic mashed potatoes and a house salad (spring mix with blue cheese, cherries and walnuts. Also house coleslaw. Hubby had rice and lobster bisque. We both loved our meals. Interior is as it sounds, woodsy with fish and animals. Nice surprise in East Tawas.

I will never go back. It was really cold in there. Potatoes were lukewarm and I could tell they had been made much earlier and had been reheated. A 7.95 plate sharing charge and they just brought an extra plate. Didn't even split it for us! We had a Restaurant.com coupon on our phone and because of their bad wifi,... More

We live in the area and this is the place we go for special occasions. The food and service are typically excellent. For an upscale meal the prices are quite reasonable when compared to the competition in West Branch or Hubbard Lake. They are located adjacent to the local Big By Restaurant but do not share the same kitchen as... More

Got there at 5 pm and didn't leave until 7pm. Had to wait over half hour just to get the outrageous bill of $117! 4 people not worth the $26 dollar plates!

Decided to drop in after a long drive and day of shopping. Both of us ordered prime ribs with red smashed potatoes, the house salad and the stuffed portobello as our appetizer. They were out of portobello and substituted a dish of mushrooms to go with our steak. The mushrooms clearly came from a can, were warmed up and tossed... More

Fantastic food - Walleye was amazing, big servings (more than we could eat), multiple side choices come with meal. More than pleasing atmosphere. A bit pricy but when it's really good, it's worth it. Worth our search to find it as we traveled through. Would definitely go there again when on that side of the state.

The only reason this place rates a two is because the service was pretty good. The food was horrible. I ordered prime rib and I guess that's what it was. It was pretty unrecognizable and there was absolutely no flavor. How can prime rib have no flavor at all. It was not a nice piece either. It looked like some... More
