Read about this and wanted to try

The food was good. We were here at lunch time and I had a BLT panini with a blue cheese sauce. It was really good. What I really liked was the variety of local beer on draft. I would eat here again.

Most of my family have special needs , it is nice to know there is a restaurant around who will make anything you want from scratch. The chef made every meal with our food allergy needs in mind even walked out and talked to us about them on a busy night. Reservations recommended on weekends as we waited about 30... More

The restaurant is a good local place to go for dinner with family members but it has aloud atmosphere due to several large screen TV's with the volume turned up . It can be hard to hear the person across the table from you . The food and service is good and the Menu has a limited steak & seafood... More

If you want a great meal, come to the Harbor Inn & Grill, or as the locals call it, "The Round House." I love their sirloin tips, oh, so tender, and their Pasta Sampler plate is the most fantastic pasta meal ever. Everything about this place is awesome, great service, short wait time for the food!

Restaurant was busy, even on a rainy night! We were seated and served immediately. Waitress brought a sample of a beer I was debating on so I could decide if I liked it. Ordered onion rings for an appetizer which came out quickly. Perch, bluegill and shrimp in one meal? Sign me up! My mom had the frog legs and... More

This California gal forgot how everything is deep fried in the mid west. Ordered the sliders and they were over done and dry. In desperate need of a good sauce. Onion rings were tasty along with the bistro sauce, like a thousand island. They needed a bit more salt though. Homemade chips were delightful but also in need of salt.... More

This restaurant was my favorite place to eat in the Monroe, MI area. Last night, however, there was nothing about the dining experience that met previous expectations. Maybe they were having a very bad night, and I'll probably give them one more chance, but if that doesn't show significant improvement I won't be going back. There was 3 in our... More

We went for a birthday party. We all had dinner and drinks. The party started with about 7 people around 7:30pm. We ended up having about 15 ppl. The waitress had to be asked several times to refill drinks and for the bills, boxes, etc. It wasn't busy enough for her to be that slow. The food was good, I... More

Tried this place for the first time. Walked into a very open Restaurant/Bar facility that had a nautical theme. A lot of windows but unfortunately the view wasn't appealing. I ordered the Mushroom Swiss Burger and my husband ordered the Turkey Club. Large lunch portions! My burger was big and there was no skimping on the Mushroom or Swiss. Came... More
