I asked our B&B host for a restaurant with healthy food and that was reasonable. We had a hard time finding Poppycocks as it was a small restuarant, but good things come in small packages. The choices of salads are awesome. I tried the greek and quinoa salad which was very tasty. Even the small salad was quite large. Service... More

This restaurant is on Front Street in lovely Traverse City. The food was good with interesting flavour combinations that worked. Locals took me and they go regularly knowing the menu by heart.

It's a cute little jazz bar with some pretty loud live music, just a head's up! If you are coming to catch up with somebody, maybe go before the musicians start. If you just want to nod your head to the beat and have a drink, you're in luck! Casual, relaxed atmosphere, not as hip/trendy as you'd expect when you... More

I don't have time to write a full detailed review but I am an ex-restaurant owner/manager who doesn't miss a thing when it comes to service/food/experience. Been to Poppycock's half a dozen times and it's been excellent each visit. This is our goto place for out of towers. Just go there.

This is always one of the most overrated restaurants in the Traverse City area. The food is consistently mediocre, the service pathetic and ambience non existent.

We were seated next to the dirty dessert cabinet. The waiter forgot my husbands beer both times he ordered. The busser interupted us to clear repeatedly. So pissed I can't remember the food!

During our visit to Traverse city, we stopped in twice at Poppycoks. The first time, we had dinner, The seared ahi tuna appetizer was perfect. Since I eat sashimi, I do not have a problem with eating raw fish. The dish was exactly as described in the menu. The sauce decorating the plate was beautiful and delicious. My wife had... More
