We went for lunch/brunch on a Sunday. The food was very good. Everyone loved the chicken pot pie and the tomato soup, which comes with a baked crust on the top. The pizza was fine. The sandwiches were creative. One person ordered a caramelized onion and bacon tart, and what came out was a large piece of quiche with very... More

Amical is a small restaurant on the main street in the downtown area. The ambiance was very nice although it is small and the tables were very close together.

Deliciously prepared food. Service was excellent, menu was varied and very reasonable. Our waitress was most personable and just added to the enjoyment of the meal. No complaints.

The food is good, nice wine list and ambience. Be sure to save room for desert! The raspberry creme brûlée is fantastic! We had an enjoyable evening.

I've eaten at Amical a number of times over the years, and it never fails to be excellent. We took friends from out-of-state there with that history, and we made more. This is my favorite place to eat in Traverse City.

Whenever we are in the area we usually make a stop at Amical's, love sitting on their patio on a nice sunny day and having some of their twisted olive bread with a glass of wine. I'd definitely recommend sharing a sandwich or a salad as the portions tend to be very big.

Service is good, but food is just average. Both my chicken pasta and my husband's fish are sour and salty. Seats are crowded. Servers are good though.
