Great food / Great Service

We take out a lot from here. Food is always prepared well, packaged great and on time. Portions are good sized and prices are fair compared to other places in town. Dining in; place is clean, friendly staff, and everything we have tried so far has been really good.

This place closed over half a year ago - and it's been reported since then multiple times. The website is now in Japanese and has nothing about Bolles Harbor Cafe (at least I don't think it does, but I don't read Japanese either).

First heard about this place in a boating magazine review. It's small and homey, but the food is top notch. We especially like the breakfast. Some of the breakfast items are sinfully delicious!

Sadly, this restaurant recently closed, and it is sad, because their food was really good. You could always count on leaving with a smile on your face.

They closed around Memorial Day with no indication of what may be done with the property. Was a great place for breakfast through family dinner - very sad to see it go!

They have a great variety of food, from steak to seafood to sandwiches. The staff there are very friendly an you tend to meet folks there from out of town. That is a good thing knowing some folks drive a distance for a great meal there.

If you didn't know it was there, you'd miss it. Everything is homemade. Clam chowder was soup of day, and filled with lots of clams. Very hardy. I had eggplant parmesan... Very good.. You can bring a bottle of wine or a beer, they have glasses and frosted mugs. Breakfast is served till 2pm. During the week they close at... More

I went there with 5 other friends and everything is Home Cooked and fresh. We did wait a bit for our food but it gave us time to chat a bit. The waitress aid sorry for the wait but we make everything fresh. We were very pleased with our meal and I will be going back for sure. The chef... More

While spending a long weekend in Monroe, MI I searched the internet for restaurants. Bolles Harbor Cafe was just up the road from the campground I was at. I dined there Friday night on Pan Fried Walleye. My meal was Outstanding. Chef Silverio Conte, who serves his own creations and traditional favorites, came out of the kitchen to see how... More

Food is usually good here but it frequently takes a long time to receive your meal. Servers do the best job they can but it seems to just take a long time to get served. Particularly annoying is when they run out of food, pizza dough, salad dressing, daily special, etc. How in the world can that happen?? Owner is... More
