Jan. 25, 2016 - ordered Olive Twists for appetizer; there were enough to share among the 4 of us and they were nicely prepared and tasty. My wife order Tomato Soup en Croute; it was good but 'nothing to write home about.' We ordered two $7 Lentil Salads; they were 'Ok' but rather small and unremarkable (not a good value).... More

We love this place for a sandwich or hot lunch. Great for everyone. We haven't had breakfast there but seems like it'd be good.

In a city boasting a number of first class, fine dining restaurants, Amical is in the top three. Housed in a very charming space on the main drag of TC, it exudes a casual, informal understated elegance. My wife and I dined here recently, and enjoyed, as part of Amical's interesting, innovative Cookbook series, recipes from "The Slanted Door" by... More

If you are a foodie you must eat here. They cook fish superbly and the pairings they put with it are perfect. They should be rated best restaurant based on attention to detail.

We live in Traverse and Amical is one of our favorites. Their cookbook series is innovative and fun. Sunday Breakfasts (they take reservations) a great way to kick back- any of their Quiche's are good- love their chicken crepes-- Dinner- a short stroll to The State theater. Try to get a seat in the back for a view of the... More

I love this restaurant. Great food and atmosphere. Favorites are the crepes and chicken pot pie. Nice wine selection. You can't go wrong here. Have eaten here every time I have visited Traverse City. I always look forward to it.

We have been traveling to TC for 15+ years and Amical has ALWAYS been excellent at a good price point. You just can't go wrong with any meal here.

I had lunch with a college professor here last Wednesday and it was exquisite. The food and service were both outstanding. I had the french onion soup and Warm Turkey Sandwich. Jessica was by far one of the best servers I've ever had in a restaurant. Very personable, knowledgeable about the menu, and enthusiastic about the peanut butter pie. The... More
