We all ate just sandwiches. Ordered the beef brisquet sandwich thought is was kind of tough meat. Would order something else next time. Got French fries with meal and the waiter also said could get onion rings (didn't say would charge extra for them if substituted). Thought we could share but when plate came my husband only had 4 on... More

We stopped in for lunch. Had the wings with spicy BBQ sauce. Excellent! Main course was the Brew Pub club and Walleye sandwich. Also excellent. Good beer. Excellent service.

We have eaten lunch here before when visiting the area. We enjoyed it then so returned this time. We each had a sandwich - the Olive Burger and the Pulled Pork. Both arrived quickly, served nice and hot, and were very tasty. Our server was especially attentive, checking on us frequently in a nice relaxed way.

We had dinner here on Friday night- the place was pretty busy, but we were able to get right in, it was an earlier dinner about 5 o'clock, any later and we might have had trouble getting in so quickly. We had the fish 'n chips, and the perch dishes- they were both excellent, and we even tried their Oktoberfest-... More

We wanted to sit outside, so there was a bit of a wait. The Hostess was very friendly and chatted with us during the wait. Our food was excellent and the atmosphere was great. Would definitely return.

I like coming here every time I visit Traverse City. The food is good and the wait times have always been reasonable. I order gluten free and dairy free food and I don't feel like I am missing out here when I have to adjust my order.

The food was alright, but it reminded me of an Applebees. The beer wasn't that great either. This place is really overrated and I can't figure out what all the hype is about. There is nothing special about it and it reminds me of a chain restaurant. I don't see myself going back here again.
