Come and dine in an art gallery on the Old Mission Peninsula. This is a fun little place that has a magic about it that keeps people returning. The food is very good and reasonable prices.

Very nice restaurant my wife and I visited on the Mission Peninsula. The service was excellent, professional and speedy. The decor was very nice and elegant, but yet inviting to the family on vacation. The food was excellent, although my salmon was slightly overcooked, it was still flavorful and the presentation was very nice. Priced right, great ambiance, great service,... More

The soup (beef-barley) was excellent. The entree (whitefish) was very good as was the salad. However the bread was served at room temp and the both the rice and green beans with the entree were just barely warm. Service was good. If the items mentioned were served at a proper temp I would of moved my rating up a notch.

This place is AMAZING! First of all, the art gallery is a unique setting that displays local talent. Secondly, our waiter, Jack, was probably the best waiter I've ever had. I have multiple food allergies, which makes it hard to eat out, but Jack and the Chef were super accommodating and the food was out of this world!

Hubby and I stopped in for dinner after touring wineries and seeing the lighthouse. We were seated right away even without a reservation. I ordered the prime rib and hubby ordered wild mushroom pasta with chicken. They brought out a loaf of their fresh baked bread with dinner. Hubby said his meal was very good. My prime rib was one...

Had lunch here. Both meal selections were great. Excellent service even though they were very busy. Excellent Key Lime pie. Nice little gallery adjoins the dining area. Clean, comfortable and a good valve for quality food.

My husband and I were in Traverse City for two days. After reading all the great reviews and after visiting the mission point light house and the two ladies working at the gift shop also recommending it, we stopped for lunch. We split the whitefish sandwich which came with slaw and homemade chips. We also had a cup of clam... More
