There is a nice variety of choices without it being overwhelming and at good prices. Great interior...but the view of the Harbor at the tables out back is even better!

Arriving in the small town of New Buffalo, I didn't expect to find such a fine restaurant. I ate lunch there and was pleasantly surprised by the outside dining overlooking the bay with boat docks, the great menu selections, and the fine service. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.

I liked it so much I went there two days in a row--and had the same lunch--when I recently spent the weekend in New Buffalo, Michigan. It's hidden away on Water Street, about a six to seven minute walk from downtown. I sat on the outdoor deck both times that overlooked the marina. My salmon caesar salad had shaved parmesan,... More

We really enjoyed the shrimp salad appetizer. I had the scallops and they were really excellent. The rooftop bar was very fun and the view fantastic. My husband had the chili rubbed pork chop and didn't care for that. I would rate the restaurant excellent but the rest of my group would not. Our server was outstanding!

We had a wonderful meal sitting on the back deck of Bentwood Tavern, overlooking the many boats that dock in New Buffalo. The menu was varied and interesting. the food and service couldn't have been better. Looking forward to our next visit.

This resaturant is hidden away in the corner of the New Buffalo harbor next to New Buffalo Yacht Cclub. It serves excellent american fare. After dinner 'if you'd like' get a glass of wine and go up to the roof top and watch the boats coming and going in the harbor.

The chef, Jenny, had a very successful restaurant in Union Pier, called Jenny 's. It closed a number of years ago then she opened again in the hotel. This is a great location. You can sit out on the deck overlooking the marina in warmer weather. The service is great and the wine list one of the best. Atmosphere is... More

I am a self proclaimed food snob. Spending time in this region on vacation has its limits regarding great dining options. There are good options, just nothing really GREAT. However, Brentwood is in the great category. The décor and ambiance was lovely when you came it. I would call it "boating chic". We started at the bar where we chatted... More
