We were walking the streets in Boyne City and were looking for a place to eat. We stopped at Red Mesa Grill and was not sure that we wanted to eat there. With the first look inside we still were not sure. I am glad...More

This is an outstanding restaurant located in Boyne City, Michigan. They have a second location in Traverse City, Michigan. Both the food and service are great as is the menu. Periodically they have feature items that change up the what you can get.

You know how you raise all these expectations, and then find out when you go back that it wasn't as good as you remembered? Red Mesa Black Bean cakes have always been as good as I remembered for the past 5 years. Woo Hoo--can't wait...More
