There's quite a number of great restaurants in TC and Amical is certainly one of the best. We've been here a number of times and haven't been disappointed. Had a nice birthday dinner here last week with 6 people. Everyone loved their meals, the service was fantastic (Melissa), and it's a great atmosphere. Hard to describe the deserts as there... More

Amical has become one of our favorite places in Traverse City. The food is spectacular, and although the service was a bit spotty this time around, on previous visits that has not been the case. The menu offers up so many good choices I always have a difficult time choosing. The restaurant itself can become a bit noisy, but the... More

Absolutely love the Olive Twists appetizer here! Quiche Lorraine was good as well - huge piece. Haven't had a bad meal here. Service is decent, but not the best. Our server last time could have been a little more attentive, and during previous visits we've experienced the same thing. We always attribute it to the busyness of the place, and... More

The food here reminds me of a higher class brunch-- but the price and atmosphere as well as the cocktails were priced reasonably and the portions were spot-on. Enough to leave you satisfied and yet wanting more of what else they had to offer. The staff was well organized and prompt. Very nice place to take a family or a... More

We had reservations for 8; but, probably did not need them, other than we had requested a table at the back overlooking the Boardman River and the Bay. Seated exactly at 8. Very attentive waiter, knowing the menu in detail, without having to refer to notes. Offered his honest opinions, based upon our comments. Servings are quite large, so don't... More

Stopped in for a late dinner. The inside is charming and warm, but we chose to sit on the outside patio that faces Front Street, which is the main drag in town. Quiet and pleasant. I ordered the lamb shank, while my friend just had the caprese salad. The salad was a decent rendition of the classic with fresh mozzarella,... More

We visit TC every year and have to stop for lunch at Amical every time. They have the best pasta in town. They are a quaint restaurant, but they were very accommodating for our large party of 12 when we called ahead. Nice sized menu with delicious choices even for the vegetarians in the group.
