We had the the trout dinners and the Michigan sandwich and fries. All was delicious. My husband wasn't quite full on his dinner but he is a typical meat and potatoes guy. Also it was a bit pricey but probably typical for resorts.

We were on a golf trip and decided to go to the Thistle in-between rounds. The food tasted great and I love how they accommodate people that are Gluten-Free. The food came out fast which made it perfect so we could make our next tee time. Overall great food, great atmosphere and great service!

We assembled here three times in the week we stayed. Two out of three were just superb. The one that was not was due to us being tired and the waitress weeded / stressed. That said the food was very good and the beer excellent.

We were a group of 20 and sat in the patio and everyone enjoyed their meals. I Loved their cucumber avocado chilled soup. It is a nice place. Atmosphere and prices were higher than name suggested. Entrees were $19-$38 for pasta to filet. They did offer entree salads, sandwiches and burgers for $10-14. There aren't many choices outside the resort... More

We had lunch here on a Sunday; the food was good, the restaurant was not crowded. We had soup and salads which were freshly prepared and tasty.

The food and service was okay. The first table we were sat at was next to the kitchen and very noisy. The second table we were move to was right on top of an air conditioner vent and about froze us out. Needless to say it was not a great experience.

I arranged for a group of 25 ladies, paying separately, to have lunch here and then a garden tour. The staff was so accommodating and friendly. With that many ladies there are many requests and they were all handled courteously. Food was average. Interior decor was great.

We ordered breakfast here. My husband had corned beef hash. It was made of chunks of corned beer that had been used for a boiled dinner. It was amazing. I had yogurt and fruit and all kinds of fresh were included. the staff was amazing and super friendly--even in the pro shop.

Service was average (resort pace), food was good. Very nice restaurant atmosphere. Pretty pricey, though the food is above average.
