“Disappointing return to an old favorite”
Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

We returned here after many years and memories of dining here with our children who are now grown. The food is just okay but the service was terrible. The setting is still lovely. Oh well. Things change.

“Dinner with friends from Calif.”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

We took some special friends out for dinner and was totally shock how the food was. The service was great but the food was below average.one of the foursome had prime rib which was average in size and taste. It had more than average the amount of fat around the outside and in the middle. The rest of us had fish. The portions were small. I had the perch which were not cooked properly. The woman had the whitefish which more cooked worst than the perch. You get better whitefish in Suttons Bay at Boone's.
The cooks in the kitchen seem like they are beginners at the Bluebird. It will be a log time before we return.

“A Pleasent evening”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

The beautiful view from the dinning room. Watching the boats go by while you are eating dinner.
A great salad bar if you don't want a big dinner

“Historic photos of Leeland”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Years of wear show on the menu and the facility. Updating of the menu and facility needs to occur but keeping the historic pictures and other parts that keep it's history intact.

“Great view of garden and river”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Definitely ask for a window sit if you eat inside. Very serene peaceful garden setting on the river. The food was good. Have had Sunday brunch as well as dinner and always satisfied.
