My oldest daughter and I had a rare "date night" - just her and me - in celebration of her 40th birthday. It was the first time either of us had been to Grand Mere Inn. The food was excellent and the service even better,...and that doesn't even mention the beautiful view of Lake Michigan from atop the bluff. My daughter had filet mignon and said it was outstanding. I had THE BEST clam chowder I've ever eaten followed by walleye fillets. If it wasn't the best walleye I've ever had, it was 1-A. The "crab-stuffed mushrooms" we had as an appetizer was easily the worst thing we had, and it was excellent. Our one regret is that we did not order the "blackened swordfish" as an appetizer. :) Suffice to say my daughter loved her 40th birthday dinner and I loved being able to give that to her. I'm taking the entire family to Grand Mere Inn for Christmas dinner, it was that good; and the "blackened swordfish" is going to be on the table. :)More

Loved Grand Mere Inn restaurant. Very busy even on a weeknight. Reservations recommended. Cordial staff. Delicious food. Supper club type atmosphere. Nice view from the windows. Benches outside with a view of the lake and prime sunset viewing. Definitely going again.

My friend and I had dinner herre on a Thursday evening, Th place was pretty busy for a week night, but service was great. My friend had the swordfish, which I thought was good (I'd never had swordfish before). I had the crab stuffed shrimp,...which was delicious. And to top it off, our table was near the large window facing Lake MI. Great view capped off a great dinner.More

Our first visit since Covid. What a fabulous experience. Debbie our server was the icing on the cake. Food presentation , taste and ambiance could not be better. I had the twin lobster tails that were incredible. Finished off the meal with carrot cake and...of course their famous martinis. So looking forward to our next visitMore

This place is off the highway and overlooks Grande Mere State Park. Sunset views are breathtaking so make sure you call for reservations and request window. The food is really great. Seafood options including blackened options are offered. Salad is fresh and vegetables are cooked...to the likening. Plenty of other options if you don’t like seafood.More

This is located off the freeway in the middle a small town. The place was full. Food was very good. Good seafood. Service was excellent. They easily seated a group of 8 and we had a very nice time. The view from the back of...the restaurant is spectacular. This is one of the better places in the area.More

This is a great OLD SCHOOL restaurant but the food is amazing!! The bar area is the best in my opinion. Great oysters, crab legs, lobster etc! The wine prices are pretty cheap and good quality!

We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary with dinner at Grande Mere. It's been a special place to us ever since our cousin first introduced it to us many years ago. Keep up the good work!

The service is just like going to the home of a family member. The owner greets you has at least one joke that makes you ready fo a great experience. The oysters Rockefeller are not to be missed

We drove 1 hour and 20 minutes to celebrate a birthday of a friend. The location is great overlooking Lake Michigan. The service was top notch and the food selection was very extensive. It was difficult to narrow down what to end up with. My...favorite the Filet was great perfectly done. I highly recommend Grand Mere for any occasionMore

We were celebrating my sister and brother-in-law's 50th wedding anniversary with a dinner out. The staff was very attentive to our party of 14. Everyone just ordered off the menu and we all had good dinners. The Walleye and Perch were very good as well...as the Filets. There is a nice wine list with not expensive choices available to most. It was a cloudy evening so no sunset, bummer.More

We have nothing but the utmost respect for the owners of this restaurant. We were going to be in Stevensville on a Friday....so I decided to call for a reservation a week before. Spoke with the senior owner, explained we were coming from out of...town. I asked for a window table. He said he would try. We arrived a little early....they were extremely busy, but they had a window view table reserved for us. The food and service were excellent. I had bacon wrapped scallops, my husband had a filet. The restaurants were all so busy that evening, but they had a table for us even though we were coming from Georgia. Nice to find a restaurant with integrity . Thank you for a great evening!More

I've been here several times when I lived in northwest Indiana,but now that I live in Las Vegas, NV, and was visiting Indiana with friends, I had to bring them here for the food and the view of the sunset. The menu will full fill...most diners, the lounge is great and the view out the floor to ceiling windows at sunset is fantastic. The owner opens the blinds for a wonderful look at the sunset over lake Michigan from your seat or you can go outside for a better look. When I was there, we experienced a double sunset due to the reflection off the water, Awesome!!! I would go back again!!!More

Grand Mere Inn seems to be more of a type of restaurant geared toward adults or maybe even teens. Not sure if they have a children's menu- I've never taken kids there. Moderately upscale food choices in the dining room, but... More

The dress code is upper casual. NO beach wear. Although no formal requirements, you do not want to be there with tank top and shorts. Most men wear slacks,shirt and some a sports jacket.
