Great food!

We came upon hearing great reviews.. and were pretty impressed. They had just recently rolled out a new menu and they had some great choices- both appetizers and entrees. The crab Rangoon dip was excellent! Salmon entree was also great. Good wine list and martinis. I tried the white sangria and... read more

Located just inside the Boulevard Inn hotel, this place offer the most sophisticated lunch and dinner selection of downtown St. Joseph. Really great sea food, delicious salads but also their sandwiches stand out. My advice, add some grilles shrimp skewers to the salad...they are worth it!

This was our second visit and we've had great experiences both times! We were seated at a table for two with a beautiful view of the lake and lighthouse! We tried an appetizer - macaroni and cheese egg rolls - which was delicious and definitely unique! Great bread. Our steaks were cooked as ordered and were fine - nothing out-of-the-ordinary... More

Have come here several times over the years and have never been disappointed. Had the fish tacos today and they were amazing. Service was attentive and the place was very clean. Great view of the lake. Highly recommended.

Loved sitting on the patio/terrace. Food was very fresh and well presented. Service was outstanding. Pricing was a bit high, but worth it. We'll be back when visiting St. Joseph later this summer.

Nice hotel with a great view. You would think they would "up" their game with a good chef. The food is below average.....but, since its a vacation-tourist town, they know they do not have to. Over priced and below average.

Very good food (local sourcing, per menu), nice selection of updated dishes, not as pricey as some other upscale restaurants in area. Good wine list, craft beers. Nice setting with outdoor seating and views of Lake Michigan. Good service,knowledgeable wait staff. Could offer more vegetarian fare.

I have been here numerous times for business meetings and the food is consistently mediocre at best and the prices are high for what you get. The last dinner I had was a large entree salad with more slimy lettuce than fresh. The only good part was the carrot decoration placed on top to hide the gross blackened "greens." When... More
