I had been looking forward to date night at Aerie. It was a sunny, beautiful day, being able to look over the Grand Traverse bay through the windows at Aerie. I looked up the menu offered online. I was ready to order, knowing what I longed for by reviewing the menu before hand. The menu online was not the menu... More

Beautiful view at the top of the Grand Traverse resort! Very romantic, fresh, seasonal menu and top notch service. The view is fantastic with a panoramic view of the Traverse City Bay Resort area. Lovely bar too! Soft surroundings, attention to every detail, great cuisine and fantastic, personal service.

Very enjoyable! We were cheerfully greeted and given options for the seating. We took a table next to the window with a spectacular view of the bay! We started with the tuna nicoise and clam chowder. Vast wine and beer selections too. Dinners were Great Lakes Whitefish and the Scallops. We followed with desert: TC cherry pudding and chocolate peanut... More

Wonderful all around experience with a great staff and excellent food. I almost forgot to mention the view of the bay which was amazing at sunset. This restaurant is pricey but well worth it.

My husband and I wanted to stay in after arriving at the hotel later in the evening during our stay at the Grand Traverse Resort, so we chose to eat at the bar/lounge of the Aerie restaurant. It was nice and quiet for the first half of visit, until an event must've ended... the place filled with an older crowd... More

My husband and I were staying at the resort and decided to give this restaurant a try based on reviews. It lives up to the reputation. I had the special skirt steak and lobster tail and my husband had the salmon. Both wonderful. Service was excellent, the view gorgeous, and the food yummy. What more could you ask for??. Well,...

Views from the 16th floor of Aerie Restaurant & Lounge in the iconic Tower of Grand Traverse Resort and Spa offers miles of panoramic views. The premier restaurant at the resort is definitely its crown jewel for a fabulous dining experience. Even on this cloudy evening miles away we can watch in falling in parts of the Traverse City area.... More

It's been awhile since we dined at Aerie, but we really enjoyed it the last time we were there. This is fine dining with a creative menu that is very well executed. The views are great because the restaurant is on the top floor (not sure how high, I think at least 8 floors). I wouldn't take young kids here... More
