“One of the best dinners we've ever had !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Our visits to Cheboygan always include a dinner at Pier 33. Our server Gwen provided excellent service and made sure our dinner this past weekend included the evening special which was salmon with shrimp over a fresh corn puree. This preparation made for one of the best dinners we have ever had! Our appetizer was a very creative combination of cheesecake, basil, heirloom tomatoes, balsamic vinegar - again excellent. The salmon chowder - excellent! The wine list is not overly confusing and very well priced. The evening was capped by an after dinner drink and excellent service from Shiloh our bartender.

“Overrated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

We went for dinner after a movie based on reviews. We found the atmosphere bland and the food acceptable but overpriced. The bread was stale. Our server was pleasant and attentive, but she did not make up for an otherwise uninteresting eating experience. I was particularly disappointed in the decor and ambiance which to me was much below the price.

“"Great surprise on the river"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

We had read mixed reviews on this restaurant and have to say that we were pleasantly surprised. In fact we couldn't have been more impressed! We had a fantastic server named Wendy and from the moment she greeted us through finishing our last bite of carrot cake she gave us exceptional service. The suggestions of the heirloom tomato salad and the calamari were spot on. Every dish our table ordered was amazing! We were even more impressed when we realized that the chef smokes his meats in house. We'll definitely be back for the pulled pork and smoked chicken pasta. A must visit in northern Michigan!

“Nice outdoor seating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Had a great dinner with family and although whitefish was soldout, the walleye replacement was good. Great salad and entrees and loved seeing the canal outdoors. Service was good, portions were good and a great selection above the average fare. Give this one a try if in Cheboygan.

“Good unique food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

It was probably a little on the expensive side for what it was (I'm pretty sure the chicken in my pasta dish was thick cut deli chicken and not good chunk breast meat), but the flavors of all our meals were good and they had some good unique entrées to try. I would definitely recommend.

The view of the boat docks on the river is the icing on the cake.
