Go see Frank and his crew to provide you with a great array of food on a Sunday morning. The food is good and the views of the open water are great.

We attended a reunion event that was at the outdoor patio near the tiki bar. It is a nice size patio there is seating in gazebo as well as on the patio. There is a nice view of the boat docks, the water and beach. There is no table service. We were told if we want something to eat, you... More

10 of us went for drinks and food. No one greeted us, no one sat us, no one came to our table. We took turns going to the bar for beer. I asked for menus from the bar and took them to our table and still no one asked if we wanted something to eat. 15 minutes later we went... More

Last easter I organized a Sunday brunch for 25 people and was extremely disappointed. They charged 8 dollars more than they usually do for Sunday brunch and had less offering. No omelet station/no carving station etc. The staff was unfriendly and made my family feel rushed and unwelcome. I emailed them, but received no response. I swore I would never... More

Attempted to eat at Luna Kai - the outdoor tiki bar-ish area attached to Gino's Surf - tonight only to wait several minutes before our presence was acknowledged for seating (we had to ask one of the four staff people who were working in/hanging out by the indoor bar.) Then, once we selected our table - we had been instructed... More

We continue to go to this restaurant in the summer months mainly for the beautiful view of the water and outside seating. #1 complaint, you have to pay for pop refills that come in a small plastic cup with all ice($2.15). #2 complaint - we went on a Sunday had to ask twice for a high chair for our 21...

We love the location and the food is good. Only open for Sunday Brunch in the winter. But the Tiki bar is open sporadically, which we've only been in once. Love the brunch, but have had challenges with the chef. He seems to unhappy most of the time. No conversation there. The outdoor Tiki bar (summer) is great. You feel... More

Because our family is spread across the Michigan area we opt to enjoy our special occasions at different resturants. Here we enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinner this year. The seat a few hundred people throughout the day and provide buffet and service that is outstanding. This is a popular location with a Lake St Clair view and regular entertainment nights.

Food is mediocre and the service horrible. We sat at a table and had to go to the bar to get our own drinks. The waitress was no where to be found so we asked for the manager. The manager said he would find her and after waiting 20 minutes we finally placed our order for food. 20 minutes following... More
