Almost very good, almost very bad

I have to laugh when giving this review because our experience was so strange it was almost funny. We went on a Sunday afternoon and we each ordered eggs benedict. My friend asked for the yolks to be 'set', I said I wanted mine regular, the waiter asked for no further explanation. When they... read more

Food was very good but not necessarily worth the price. We had the whitefish and chicken Marsala - the kids had the Mac and cheese (which was excellent and not at all the Kraft variety). The Marsala was more like an Alfredo but still very tasty. The service was very slow - seemed like it was the kitchen not the... More

The atmosphere and a couple of appetizers. Good calamari and the spinach and artichoke dip was...interesting. More mozzarella and mustard than spinach and artichoke. All in all, very pleasant.

We've eaten and hung out at this place several times. Last year, the open mike night was the highlight of our trip. This time, the food was OK but overpriced for the portion size. The service was incredibly slow and we had to remind our server several times to bring the check. It's not the best place in Glen Arbor,... More

Staff were friendly and efficient. Menu had good choices. We had the fish, salads, and flatbread pizza, those were tasty (although, both soups had little taste to them). Prices were within reason for the area. We would eat here again.

Very good food and altogether dining experience. Yes it is a little pricey but our service was excellent and our waitress was very attentive and friendly. They do have a kids meal which our 10 yr. old liked. My husband had the hamburger, I had the crab cakes and our son had the ribs. We were not disappointed. Would highly... More

We came in for lunch after kayaking hoping for a variety of food choices and prices. Unfortunately, this was not the case. The menu was very limited in choice and price - maybe 5 entrees and 5 sandwiches. The prices started above $12 an entree. The food was ok, but not a good deal for the price. It was hard... More

Disappointed, in the past we loved coming here and having fresh whitefish and walleye. It was amazing. Not so this trip, menu changed, most of the fish is frozen. No bread served and the other dish shrimp & grits was really bad. Our whitefish was a little fishy tasting. We will not be back... So sad 😒

We had dinner here and the food was very good. Lobster bisque, crab cakes, steak - all wonderful. It was a little loud, but the service was good and we'd go back next time we're up that way.
