Adult Mac and cheese. Just get it, forget that you're watching and trying to be good... Great for kids and prices are pretty good. The beer is just the icing on the cake....

We had heard good things about this place and came to try the food, and to sit on the upstairs balcony on a beautiful night. We had our two small children with us, and I could tell they weren't really interested in sitting us upstairs. So after I got over that and kinda feeling like we were lied to a... More

I visited with family and friends for lunch on a Sunday. They were busy as soon as they opened but we managed to get a table on one of the outdoor decks. The atmosphere was great, very fitting with the town. I had a build-your-own burger which was very nice. Appetizers were also nice. I would go again.

Excellent burger! Everyone in our family enjoyed it. Got in without a wait when everywhere else had long wait. Live music was good.

This restaurant was wonderful. We asked to be seated on the patio so that we could enjoy the amazing sunset on Lake Michigan. They told us it would be an hour wait, but that we could leave a cell phone number for them to call once the table was ready. This gave us the ability to explore the neighboring shops.... More

We stopped by here before heading out on an afternoon sail based on a recommendation. The place is very nice and the deck is great for outside seating. We arrived before the lunch crowd on a Friday and were on a bit of a short time table. The waitress took our orders quickly but the food was a bit slow... More

We only ate there once, so I have no dislikes. I had a bacon cheese hotdog. It was wonderful. The service was attentive. The drinks were kept full. The food was delivered hot. All in all, a great lunch.

We stopped in right after they opened. We were seated outside on their 2nd floor deck. My husband ordered the Olive Burger and I had the Stuffed Mexican burger. Both were good mainly because of the toppings. The burgers themselves were pretty bland. Average cost of the burgers were $9-$10. My daughter had the mac & cheese off the kids... More

Very quick and efficient service. I ha whitebait dip to start, which was really nice. Bacon Perfection burger was pretty good without bringing the house down. Rasberry ale was excellent. The Buck has a very impressive range of beers to go at. The bar is set over three floors, with a roof terrace to be enjoyed, should the weather be... More
