Good restaurant sad to see it go! This was a popular place farm to table in this area but they ran aground with financial problem, they were going to setup cooking classes but I did not hear anything about reincarnation of a restaurant

We took our out of town friends here recently, which was also our first visit. It's a small diner but we only had to wait about 15 minutes for a table. When you first enter you look at the menu, order and pay before you get a table. This was kind of cool because once we sat down we could... More

Delicious and progressive. I love what this restaurant is all about. I had the chicken tacos and they were delicious! It's awesome to see that they grow their veggies in the garden on site. I will be going again!

My own feeling is that it is a bit pricey for what you get. The food is good, and much more innovative than most places. Bring you wallet! I think the basic burger starts about $8 (and is about a quarter as good as the $3 one at LeRoy's Bar)

Our first visit was pricey but delicious. The second trip was disappointing. The menu had completely changed, and the veggie scramble contained many bitter items that should have been tasted before they were served. For two of us, the breakfast bill was $31 which did not include any beverages or tip. Also, it took over an hour before our food... More

We stopped here while driving up to Traverse City and it was worth the trip away from the highway. The place is casual, but the food is excellent. My wife had the macaroni and cheese with pork belly, and it is some of the best mac and cheese we've had. I had the pulled pork burrito and it was also... More

Heard a lot of hype about this place and decided to check it out. Didn't think it was as great as all the reviews I read, but good was ok. If you are looking to try something different from traditional fare it's a good place to go.

While tasty and liking the lime they put into the tacos, I thought it was a bit overpriced and left still quite hungry.

Gloria & I enjoyed our Granddaughter's 3rd Birthday with Her Parents. Portions were generous, quality was great. Their recipes were unique, we had breakfast fair at 2pm. Omelette's were yummy, along with Burrito and fried chicken! We found the fried potatoes good but overly spicy for our taste. The staff was pleasant. Counter service is not our favorite, but the...

I'm looking forward to visiting my sisters in the Lansing area again this fall. Last time I was there, we went to Fork in the Road on a recommendation from a friend. I immediately fell in love with the retro music and atmosphere. Having lived in Seattle the past 35+ years and traveling to many large cities, I didn't expect... More
