Cocktail reception at Knot. Service was good and the appetizers were adequate. Setting overlooking the harbor is spectacular. Really need to be staying in the Village to access.

Waterfront restaurant at Bay Harbor Michigan overlooking the bay with inside and outside dining. We chose outside, a beautiful night with a gorgeous sunset. A delightful view of the boat dock with boats docking. The food was excellent.

We love this place! Our trip to Bay Harbor this time we ate here 3 times. The food is always good! We always sit outside where you can see the lake and the marina. Just a wonderful place!

Two years later I was there again, I have a short memory. Still a lot of problems with every little thing. We got seated and was abandoned to starve. One waitress was having a jolly time with a table and just stood there chatting for...More

This was my 2nd trip to this location for lunch. It was busy as usual in the summer. We had to wait a bit to be seated and waited on but it wasn't horrible since we wanted a table outside. The food was great as...More
