My boyfriend and I were visiting Traverse City and came across this little gem! We order the pecan crusted whitefish and a New York strip and it was absolutely mouth watering! The entree included fresh veggies and the portions were filling. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. The view!! Ohhh the view was stunning! If only it wasn't raining... More

A great meal experience. Restaurant is right on the water and has a good selection of food. Service was phenomenal and the meal matched the service. The grilled tuna steak and crusted whitefish with amaretto sauce was excellent.

Went here hoping to have good fish dinners, we were very pleased! Service was very good, ambiance was nice and comfortable. We had the walleye and rainbow trout dishes and they were excellent! Very well prepared and delicious. We'll be back!

This is my second or third visit here. I love the views and the ambience. I ordered a steak this time and it was really tough. Next time I would try something different. The bread and pesto are delicious. We had great service and a lovely time, just wouldn't recommend the steak.
