My wife and I were referred to this restaurant by locals. No wonder it's a favorite. We heard it is always very busy so parking can be an issue. The setting is spectacular right on the waterside. Great place to enjoy Michigan beer! The food was first rate and the service friendly and fast. You must go if you're in... More

My wife and I ate there for dinner and were very happy with the food service and atmosphere. We were there on a weeknight and despite the fact that they told us to expect a thirty minute wait we were seated within ten. The menu was wide ranging with a great deal beyond the expected fish. I had a pecan... More

We dined here after a fun day of wine tasting on the Leelanau Peninsula- a super ending to a great day. Our server was Scott, an extremely knowledgeable and friendly young man, who did his best to make sure that we were well taken care of. The food was delicious, served hot, and presented attractively. This was our third trip... More

What an excellent brunch spot! We arrived on a Sunday being treated to an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet. Excellent choices included a made-to-order omelet station, but even more special, a hot crepe bar with both savory and sweet offerings. My party tried two: the shrimp-asparagus and a banana-Nutella crepe. Both were excellent, as was the egg white omelet. We also tried... More

Nice water view and patio dinning. Not fine dinning but good enough food and service. This is about location so lunch and before sunset is best time to visit.

We came to Traverse city for my birthday weekend. The only thing I planned out was coming here. Best decision of our trip. We were told it would be a 45 minute wait but we were seated in 20 min. We lucked out and got seated in the front room over looking the water. Me and hubby had lobster bisque,... More

Ate here for our anniversary. Started with an appetizer of BBQ shrimp wrapped in bacon(a must try!) Husband had the sampler platter..ribs, shrimp, cherry sausage. Was more than he could finish! I had prime rib, served with a loaded sweet potato...potato is heaven on earth. Bread and dip was exquisite. All in all the best place to eat in TC.... More
