Very busy little restaurant! Great food! The entrees were inventive and unique. Corn cakes were delish!

My wife and two of our friends went to Poppycocks on October 7th, 2014 for supper. It was a little crowded and seemed like it would be a good choice.

I can't say enough good things about Poppycocks; from the welcoming, comfortable decor to the friendly staff, to the excellent food, it was a great dining experience. What sets Poppycocks apart from other restaurants is their food options for all kinds of diners, including vegetarians, vegans, halal, kosher, and gluten-free folks. We started with the tostado appetizer (vegetarian and gluten-free... More

Do yourself a big favor and stop by Poppycocks while you're visiting TC. We had one of the best meals we've ever had. The pita bread appetizer with the 3 dips was incredible and our entrees were great too. We had some delicious bloody marys as well! Awesome environment, nice staff, and interesting menu options.

Another great appetizer and drinks at Poppycocks. Busy, busy, but we got seated right away without a reservation. Our server Lauren was over the top good. Love this place ! Jim and Linda Munro Korner Kottage Bed & Breakfast Suttons Bay, MI

Poppycocks has a varied menu. I had some excellent pasta with brie alfredo. The staff prepared a special dish for my wife who was on a low iodine, no salt diet.. She had an excellent salad. We sat in the street side window and it was very pleasant. Also sell some great desserts. I think you will enjoy a visit.

While the wine and beer list are substantial, the food, touted as foodie, was okay but not top quality. Everything was simply...average. The clientele appeared to be tourists, not locals.
