We made a reservation and we efficiently greeted but after that, it went drastically downhill. Our order was taken amd we got appetizers - the artichoke dip was smothered with cheese but the whitefish pate was very good ( the only bright spot!) We were then told about 45 minutes later that the kitchen had not received our order for... More

We hosted a family dinner, and were very happy with the results. They gave us a back room. Considering the size of the crowd, the service was good and the food was delicious. A little joint planning made the event go very smoothly

Went here after a long day of hiking the sleeping bear dunes all the way to the lake. Was a really good meal. The half pound burger and fish n chips was really good. They have a great outside area as well.

Wanting a quick lunch, we dropped into this restaurant on the Main Street in Glen Arbor. Though the reviews were not so good on Trip Advisor, we decided to give it a try. Let me prevent you from making the same mistake that I made. The server was not well-trained, though she was friendly. The fish tacos were well presented,... More

When we saw the sign for fresh fish, our mouths started to water. We love lake perch! However the fish was dry and not very tasty. Also, it was overpriced for what we got. Our server was friendly, and checked on us frequently. The tables were not clean; when I mentioned this, they said they couldn't get them clean anymore.... More

We stayed at the homestead and wanted a sit down and order breakfast. This fit the bill. They offer all the basics but some nice touches with omelettes and homemade coffee cake. We both had scrambled eggs and they were good. I'd definitely go here again for breakfast.

Located on the eastern end of Glen Arbors main drag, this is a nicely appointed restaurant that is probably a bit under-rated on TA. The menu is quite varied and our food was very good if pretty pricey, though most places in Glen Arbor are pretty pricey, even at the start of the tourist season. My wife had the Margarita... More

Food and drink were good but servers were very young and inexperienced. We asked for a pitcher of beer and after a long wait informed us that they could not do that for us even though they had what we wanted on tap. They were unfamiliar with the menu and the items available that day so that after orders were... More

I went here with my extended family for dinner tonight (11 of us in total). The dinner was horribly overpriced and the food was, in a word, terrible. Chicken marsala that was a creamy, non-marsala disaster (for $22), fish that was mediocre at best ($24), a "Maryland" crab cake that seemed to be from frozen disgusting crab ($26), and the... More
