“Food with flavor @ lakeside location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

Our family of five each tried something different. Every entree was delicious & had lots of flavor. Quality ingredients & preparation make a difference. Lakeside location & cozy atmosphere add to the appeal of this place. Our server was informative & efficient. Food served quickly. Looking forward to a return visit to try more items.

“Fabulous food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

I would definitely recommend the 10 minute trip to Boyne City if you are staying at Boyne Mountain to give this first-class restaurant a try. I had the wild mushroom gnocchi and it was out of this world.

“Great dining experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

The service is quick. The staff is friendly and properly trained. The food is delicious. We had stuffed eggplant for appetizer. Came with bread and butter. Fresh grated Parmesan upon request. I had the shrimp manicotti. I love shrimp and there was shrimp in every bite. Perfectly seasoned. He got the veal meatball pasta. I tried it and it is a little drier for my liking but very tasty. Entrees also served with bread and butter. Lower lighting to set the mood but not too dark. Perfect view of the lake. Also a bar for drink selections. I would come here again. Prices are more expensive than mcds but the food is great. Pasta dishes between 15-20.

“Magnificent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012 via mobile

Classy, excellent fare, very good wine list, waiters are knowledgable servers. My father in law could not have a dish which had onions of any kind in the dish. Our waiter went to the kitchen and read the recipe! He saved my father in law a very bad allergic reaction and suggested a very fine dish that did not contain onions! This is a wonderful, wonderful establishment!

“Breakfast with family and friend”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Having breakfast with family I was a little surprised at the amount of food and quality. The price was average for what you get.
