This is an old house that is very quaint in the front with a nice bar with a Piano and a back dining room. It has a very old fashion décor that gives the feeling of being drawn back in the 1920's.
We had reservations and we were seated immediately, however, it took over 10 minutes for the assistant waiter go bring over just a glass of water and the head waiter also did not check back in a timely matter. The service made me feel like I was in a dinner that was overbooked. If I am paying for service and ambiance, I expect it.
My wife had the Walleye while I had Prime rib while both were good, but something was missing - flavor! Most of the flavors were very limited; which was funny since the Walleye was supposed to be Cajun. The bread and sides were good but not great. Also we were very disappointed they did not feature local wines since there are so many great wines from Michigan from to chose.
This was not a bad choice but since there are many other great places in Traverse City, Petoskey Harbor Springs and surrounding area that you should seek other places due to cost and service. All I can say is they wanted to be something they were not trained to be.
