We did a day trip to Munising and stopped at the pictured rocks cruise docks. The Navigator is a block from the parking areas for the cruise. As we walked i to the place it was quite hot, so hot we considered turning around and leaving. Once seated our waitress gave us menus and drinks and left us to make... More

The food and service were awful! It was a hot day and the waitress warned us that the menu was limited due to something going on in the kitchen. It took forever to get drinks and our food. The food was mediocre at best. Never again!

I'm so glad we had breakfast at the Navigator so We could watch George do his radio show from the restaurant. What a nice guy! Great staff at a very traditional restaurant.

We went for breakfast and the place was not crowded with people, but with flies! They were very pesky. We asked our server to clean off some tables so maybe the flies would go away, but that never happened. Service was very slow.

Right at the corner of Elm Street and Route 28th is the navigator restaurant. Went there for breakfast on a Saturday at noon and waited about 15 minutes for a table. Food preparation was excellent. Service a little slow possibly because they were so busy. Seems to be the most popular spot in town at least from our limited observation.... More

This is right near the Picture Rocks Cruise marina so we thought it would be fast and good. Wrong on all counts. The waitress tried but there were too many people and not enough staff. Several people got up and left.

Went in and there was the usual sign, please wait to be seated. After waiting 10-15 minutes I got a waiters attention and asked if they had a host or hostess and he said for what? I said we would like to have lunch, he looked around at all the dirty.tables and said it would be 30-35 minutes before we... More

My wife and I stopped for breakfast at Navigator on the morning we were leaving Munising. The weather was really nasty and it was raining fairly hard. The restaurant looks right at the harbor and we were surprised to see Pictured Rock boats still going out. (I would not have gone). They were pretty busy so we had to wait... More

Got there first thing in the morning as we had tickets for the 10 a,m, cruise. Restaurant was empty and we were seated right away. Food was hot and tasty, perfect way to fill up for a morning on the water. Server was very pleasant and helpful.

We loved this place so much we went twice for breakfast. Fun atmosphere, there is a nautical theme. Staff was very friendly and the food was delicious.
