Striped in with two families. Four adults and four kids. The team was friendly and inviting and helped us settle in. We ordered the calamari, nachos and wings to start. Five stars for the calamari and nachos but the wings need a little help. Overall good was tasty. Mahi tacos were better with corn tortillas and the cheese pizza for... More

I went to the Union Tap and Grill to see an NBA playoff game - I needed a place with a TV showing sports. I was pleasantly surprised by a really good burger, a great list of microbrews, and a generally nice atmosphere. Initially I had planned to go to Seven Monks, across the street, which I had been to... More

Had a weekend up in Traverse city. Headed out to all our favorite bars. This bar is in the midst of all the other bars downtown. We sat down and the service was slow at first until they realize we were there to get our drink on. I never tried any of the food they offer. I did realize they... More

We were surprised by a new menu. The andouille cream sauce covering the catfish and home style fry chips was delicious! Avocados were politely substituted for figs on the salad and the salad was nicely presented on a long plate. we will miss the salads and flat breads that use to be on the menu but we will have to...

So we went here as they state they have steak and seafood on the window, they have one steak, if you even want to call it a steak. I ended up with a shrimp po boy, it was OK. Another couple with us got the ribs and the baked Mac and cheese, they said both were pretty good. Way over... More

Stopped here by chance late one evening, too late to go home for dinner. Loved the atmosphere here. Cozy bar, but TV's around so you can watch sports if you want to. Wide variety of local beers and cider. Couldn't decide what we wanted on the menu, so much to choose from. Settled for steak & shrimp, and fish and... More

We had an Up North Live special so we gave it a try and we were very pleased that we did! The atmosphere was casual and friendly with a very nice waitress/bartender. Do check for current hours, they are different for the winter and were not as given on some websites (closed Monday, open later Tuesday, Wed., and Thurs) We... More

I had the baked Macaroni and cheese....Unreal good! so very cheesy and just the right thickness to string out nicely with every forkful. A great buttered bread crumb topping that was just crispy enough to keep you eager for the next bite. My Husband had the mushroom, swiss cheese burger with the biggest, freshest fries you can imagine! It was... More

I was there last Saturday and ordered a bloody mary, calamari, and pulled pork sliders (without the bun). The calamari was soft and really tasty; not that rubbery, over cooked stuff. The pulled port sliders were really good too and a great price. The bloody mary was recommended by the waitress and it was an excellent choice. I highly recommend... More
