“"Great surprise on the river"”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

We had read mixed reviews on this restaurant and have to say that we were pleasantly surprised. In fact we couldn't have been more impressed! We had a fantastic server named Wendy and from the moment she greeted us through finishing our last bite of carrot cake she gave us exceptional service. The suggestions of the heirloom tomato salad and the calamari were spot on. Every dish our table ordered was amazing! We were even more impressed when we realized that the chef smokes his meats in house. We'll definitely be back for the pulled pork and smoked chicken pasta. A must visit in northern Michigan!

“Nice outdoor seating”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Had a great dinner with family and although whitefish was soldout, the walleye replacement was good. Great salad and entrees and loved seeing the canal outdoors. Service was good, portions were good and a great selection above the average fare. Give this one a try if in Cheboygan.

“Good unique food”
Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

It was probably a little on the expensive side for what it was (I'm pretty sure the chicken in my pasta dish was thick cut deli chicken and not good chunk breast meat), but the flavors of all our meals were good and they had some good unique entrées to try. I would definitely recommend.

The view of the boat docks on the river is the icing on the cake.

“Creative Menu on Michigan's Scenic Inland Waterway”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

We live locally and have enjoyed having Pier 33 added to our limited selection of dining options. Dishes are more creative than what we normally see in this area, and fresh ingredients are used wisely. All of the servers are friendly and helpful. I would recommend this restaurant to those in the area who are looking for an upscale meal in a very relaxing environment. You won't find snooty or pretentious here!

“Rachael is fabulous!”
Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

We sat outside in the couch lounge area and Rachael, our server, was incredible. She was so helpful, attentive and incredibly sweet. We enjoyed the Szechuan calamari the best. Probably a better place to bring the kids, we were expecting a fancier spot for adults. But all in all, rachael made our night!
