Great as usual!

Food was excellent as usual! Was there for breakfast and LOVE their omelets. Great place to sip coffee with a view of the lake too. A must stop when we come up to Munising twice a year!

Ask for Jessie! She was fun and welcoming--really made our morning. I had the Southern Cross Omelette. YUMMY! I do recommend the marble rye toast. Thank you, Jessie!

We had an amazing breakfast that was reasonably priced with a spectacular waterfront view while we ate. Not only was our server (Rita)outstanding, but an entertaining, memorable character as well. Add to this that there is a live radio broadcast coming from the dining room, it all adds up to a really cool Munising experience. Don't believe the nay-sayers reviews... More

I had not planned to stop here because of the very mixed reviews. However, we walked by it coming from the Pictured Rocks Tour boat and I thought it looked just fine, so we tried it for breakfast. The coffee was good, the service was good, the food was priced right and cooked correctly. The restaurant was clean, including the... More

We went in at 8pm and were seated almost immediately. We ordered our drinks and when the waitress returned she said the had to clean some glasses because they had just finished a large rush. Okay with us. We waited 15 -20 to get our order taken because our waitress had a table of 19 to take care of. This... More

We were quickly seated and served. I had the Paul Bunyan Blueberry Pancakes. They were huge and full of blueberries and absolutely delicious, as long as you didn't use the syrup from the little single serve dip pod (Like a McNugget's sauce). It tasted terrible and was a disservice to such a special pancake. The sausage links were oddly pale... More

we've always looked forward to eating at the Navigator, in spite of routinely poor service, it's location made it fun. But this time we had to leave because our waitress made us wait forever without saying a word to us... she must have walked by our table a half dozen times while we waited to give her our order.

We had tried in vain to find whitefish, but they had it at the Navigator, which was recommended by our kayak guide. It was so fresh and tasty! The place itself is nothing special, it has a view of the harbor in some places, it is clean, the staff is friendly and helpful and the food wholesome and tasty. And... More

Enjoyed the food both times. We had sandwiches for lunch and then whitefish for dinner. Go for the great whitefish!
