“Good food, Great view!”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

The food was pretty standard, but good. There is a salad bar. Staff was nice. But the view is amazing! The restaurant is up on a bluff so you can see a long way off. You can look for a few lighthouses on clear days and watch big ships go by.

“worst service in the u.p.”
Reviewed August 15, 2011

we arrived just after 11:30 and were told that breakfast was all that was available. at $10 a piece for the buffet they had one pancake and five french bread sticks for the four of us. Five minutes later we were told that they were clearing the buffet for lunch. Twenty minutes later we were told that we could not eat from the buffet because we had payed for the breakfast buffet.

“Good food- great view”
Reviewed June 10, 2011

A small family place next to a hotel. Your best bet here is the whitefish- very fresh and affordable. A dinner broiled runs about 13 and the sandwhich (breaded about 7.25 Kids enjoyed the burgers. Others had the all you can eat breaded whitefish and enjoyed that. Beautiful windows with great views of the lake- bird books, binoculars and wooden puzzle games are a nice touch. Enjoy the cut River bridge park just down the road- pretty park with fun trails.

“Best Whitefish and a fabulous salad bar”
Reviewed June 6, 2009

Stopped here the first time for breakfast. Wow, what a meal THAT was. Large portion sizes and what a view. You can see the bridge, an island, and downstate from the dining area. They also have a nice deck with seasonal dining. On the way back through, we stopped and had dinner. All you can eat whitefish for 11.25 and a very memorable salad bar. Everything was so FRESH! The service was also remarkable, very friendly people.

“Great little place in the UP of Michigan”
Reviewed January 19, 2008

We stopped at this little road-side diner for lunch. Good basic food for a reasonable price. Nice portion sizes, too. The Bay View Inn sits south of US 2 in Epoufette, MI ( the UP ).

The reason to stop here is the view, the diner is sitting on a bluff and its large windows overlook Lake Michigan with one great view. There is a deck that looks like it might be used in the summer. Look for the Bay View a few miles west of the Cut RIver Bridge.
