We come here a lot. It seems like a place where locals hang out. It is cozy and friendly and they have the best Cobb salads ever. Love it.

My wife and I have eaten here several times. It has always been a good option for dining choices in Traverse City. It is better than Applebees, Ruby Tuesday and Chili's. Prices are not too bad for a good meal. Wait staff is always attentive and food is served in a reasonable amount of time. I was very disappointed with... More

We arrived late on a weeknight and the restaurant was practically empty. We were promptly seated and had a warm welcome from our server Rob. The menu has a wide variety of choices. We both had parmesan crusted whitefish which was very fresh and well prepared. The sides were good too. Service was attentive. There is a bar in another... More

Been here before, the food really is great, too bad the service is not. We arrived on a Saturday, short wait not slammed for customers. The waiter seemed very inept. Could not do his job at all. I must say this was hands down the worst service I have ever had. It was a pleasure stiffing the waiter on the... More

This restaurant is one of our favorites in Traverse City. It has a very diverse menu and they have Broasted Chicken to go with sides if you wish or just chicken. They have a great salad bar, the soups are the best and Sunday Brunch is great. We usually go for lunch which ends at 4:00 p.m. during the week.... More

The wait staff is the real star of this restaurant. They are attentive, helpful, and know the menu. Our meals were generous and tasty, but not outstanding. My steak was done to my order, but was not hot when it came to our table. The whitefish special was presented well, but was a little bland for how it was described.... More

This restaurant has gone downhill in the past year or so. Used to be "the place to go" but something has changed. They did do a nice upgrade on the look inside but the food just isn't what it used to be. The service was horrible. Food was so-so. The soup we had used to be their signature item. The... More

This was my second trip to Schelde's and I will definitely go back! The French onion soup is one of the best I have ever eaten. I ordered sandwiches both times. I couldn't finish my sandwiches and ended up taking half home for leftovers!

Had a very nice Ceasar salad here, a little overdressed for my but my son loved it. The ribs to follow were also good. They have a few local beers on draft too. The decor could look nicer but the food made up for it. Excellent waitstaff.

I really do love Schelde's and kiss Randolph the moose too. The food is usually wonderful but this time I ordered smelt and it did not smell good and it was very over fried....to the degree that the fish were very hard. I really shouldn't have eaten it, but I did. Next day I was sick and I credit it... More
