Fresh fruit, crisp lettuce with all the fixin's for a great salad, baked ham, broiled fish, baked chicken, prime rib...all topped off with a dessert bar featuring cherries jubilee and bananas Foster, what a wonderful buffet! The spinach artichoke dip was excellent, tasty with a crusty Parmesan cheese top served with toasted pita bread.

Possibly the best French onion soup ever. Everything my husband and I ate was great. The architect, Earl Young, built using stone from the area and the Great Lakes. The basement of this restaurant once served as his office. See the fireplace with the huge stone in the shape of Michigan and a meteor! While you're there, see some of the many houses built by him and then eat at the Weathervane. We were seated near a window so we could watch boats coming in and out of the channel to Lake Michigan. The drawbridge is still a fascination to us.

We were celebrating my son's birthday. Two of us had the prime rib and it was excellent. The others had the pork chop and the fish. There was not a bad dish, all of the food was done to perfection. It was a little pricey but the food was very good. It was the third restaurant we had been to that day as everything in Charlevoix closes in the winter until May. I was right on the water so the view was beautiful. I would go back again.
