We had desert here a couple of evenings. We were not in the market for their full dinner menu, but wanted to sample their delicious deserts and try out the Awesome Coffee. The view from the outside deck is fantastic. The service was a bit off when we informed the host that we were only having desert and drinks. The Awesome Coffee and Ultimate Mocha are great after dinner drinks!

Good food, 2nd summer visiting. Very fancy for our taste but we liked what we got - white fish, ribeye. Kids menu good however not a ton of food choices for my teen- they ordered off the kids menu. :-). We enjoyed the end of the night entertainment watching the skunks in the bushes along the waterfront... A bit scared we might get sprayed. You may want to look into having them moved to a safer location.

We sat outside on a beautiful sunny day. It was fun to watch the boats go by and the draw bridge opening and closing. Food and service we very good and only a short wait for a table. Highly recommend.

This lovely restaurant is in a gorgeous setting right next to the draw bridge in downtown Charlevoix. Our service was fine, but the prices were out of sight! If you go for supper and want something a bit "lighter", be sure to ask to the sandwich menu, otherwise they don't give it to you. You will pay dearly for a great view and an OK meal.

We stopped in for lunch because we wanted to sit by the water, and Stafford's bills itself as Charlevoix's only waterfront dining. It was enjoyable sitting by the channel between Round Lake and Lake Michigan and watching the drawbridge operate and the boats go by.

It was the busy summer season so there was a long wait for a table. The service and food were adequate. Definitely go for the location.
