The restaurant which also has a bar is centrally located. The dining hall is large and they decorate for the season(s) to create a nice atmosphere. On this particular day, they were short-handed so it did take a while to get our drinks and just a little bit longer for someone to take our order. Ordered fish (Walleye and Trout... More

Great food, service and nice atmosphere. Menu diversified. Millennium soup very good. Like the cubby holes for private or intimate dining. Bar and dining separate from dining room for casual dinner ng.

We went there for our 20 year anniversary dinner and were surprised at how fabulous the food was. The chicken especial was likely the best chicken I ever had, and the portions were huge. Great place, fabulous service.

We had our annual golf outing @ Lakewood Shores (Gailes, Blackshire and Seradella courses) and because Tait's was highly reviewed on Yelp, went there. We were given the bar area as we had a group of 16 and it was nice and "clubby". The waitress, April, was a gem! The food, in the main, was hailed by all. Nice crab... More

My wife and I are are from the Detroit area and visit Oscoda 4-5 times every year. Tait's is always on our list of placces to eat. It is upscale in decor, food, and service, riveling many of the better Detroit area restaurants. Last time, my wife had perch which was outstanding. I had the special, linguini with scallops in...

My husband had ribs and I had chicken excellent (or something close to that) ....the food was remarkable, even the homemade soups. If you are looking for a fancier type of restaraunt this is the one. The prices are kinda high....but well worth it for the quality you receive..

This is one of my favorite places for a special occasion. It is a bit out of the way and doesn't have televisions so you can actually have a conversation. It has a nice wine list and many specials. The house soup is fantastic, and I love the chicken especial. In the fall if you catch it the upside down... More
