Excellent choice for tourists and residents alike. No surprises on the menu, but everything is well prepared and tasty. Great location and bar side is fun.

Friendly staff, prompt service, decent variety of menu items. Lunch just after noon, not busy, folks started showing up as we finished, guess late lunches are the thing in a vacation town. Very personable staff, food was just fine, all good. A decent priced , good food spot!

Most over-rated restaurant in Glen Arbor! Bad food and equally bad service. Crab cakes & fish tacos sucked! Several drink orders not filled due to "unavailable". Also had to wait for table although there were MANY tables available. I should have taken the hint! Trust me...this place is NOT worth what they charge! I won't be back!

We were meeting a friend on our little 2 day trip up north and wanted to meet near their work at Sleeping Bear Dunes. Western Avenue in Glen Arbor is a quaint little touristy street with shops and restaurants. We chose Western Avenue Grill as it was less busy than the other restaurants on the street for a Thursday evening.... More

We went to Western Avenue for a family dinner and enjoyed sitting on patio and enjoying ambiance of evening. The corn chowder soup was delicious and 2 of our party had the pecan chicken and liked it very much. The only downer was our waiter, a teenager who had other things on his mind. Would recommend this restaurant.

1st time at the Western Ave. Grill for a dinner with friends. We reserved seating for 8 - 10 folks & were accommodated for dinner 5:30 - 6:00 PM. We were seated in a spacious back room with an outdoor feel from the very large windows & outside viewing. We enjoyed fantastic meals all around with attentive servers & service... More

The empty parking lot was a bit worrisome, but maybe that's more about the prices. I got a cheeseburger, which was $13 (and $3 additional if you wanted fries instead of chips). The burger was about average, but I was in love with the fries. Overall, I really did enjoy it. The waitress was very friendly, we were greeted the... More

The food here is good, but it is sure pricey! I got the BBQ Chicken Flatbread, which was $13. It was yummy, but a bit pricey!

We went to Pyramid Point and decided to stop in Glen Arbor for dinner. We have been to the Western Avenue Grill before and remembered it as a nice place. The service was good and the ambience is nice but the food is amazingly high-priced. I ordered the Blackened Whitefish and it was very good (maybe not $25 worth of... More
