This is a great place to grab a beer. They have a large selection of draft beer and many more in bottles. The prices aren't outrageous either. Its a pretty mellow place that seems to pick up a little later in the evening.

This used to be a great neighborhood bar & grille, especially in the summertime when you could enjoy dinner and sunshine on the patio. Not any more.

A few years back, they had very friendly staff and great service. Not any more.

The quality of staff & service had gone downhill last summer (new management?), but I was hoping this was not a trend.

Stopped by there tonight and there was no table-service anymore on the deck. You actually had to buy drinks inside at the bar (and pay) and then order food from a different counter (and pay) and come back when your order was ready. I thought this might be a one-night occurrence, but was told that this was the standard way forward as outlined by its owners. Lots of confused & bewildered customers !!!

Too bad - I have been coming here for many years, but do not plan on returning under the current set-up and service. I hope the "Yacht Club" returns someday.

We stopped in with friends after a bike ride. There is good Michigan and microbrew beer selection on tap, good specials, and a very good bar burger. Service was friendly.

This kind of little cozy place compliments and contrasts with the other places downtown. For the reviewers expecting something other than a quaint little bar, maybe you would feel more at home hanging out with the D-bags at Bar Louie or Rochester Mills.

I have been driving by for years and decided to take a date there. We had a great time. The staff is friendly and the prices were great. I haven't tried the food yet but I heard it was good. Very casual but fun.
