“Very nice, but nothing memorable”
Reviewed September 4, 2014

We ate at the rooftop last week and the experience was very nice. Be prepared to wait around 30-45 mins if you want to have a table there, as there is quite a queue. The staff is extremely kind and helpful, the service reasonably fast. The foot is good, but not particularly memorable (as others seem to have noticed too). If you want memorable food, go elsewhere (Corndance Tavern in Mishawaka, for instance). Overall a pleasant experience anyway. Wouldn't come back if not probably for the location and the rooftop.

“Roof top dining with Awesome views!”
Reviewed September 4, 2014

Took my daughters there to celebrate one's birthday, and we had a Great time! Got seated right away, but we had went kind of early for dinner, service was friendly and pretty prompt. We ordered two appetizers and pizza and everything was delicious. Very comfortable atmosphere, friendly service, and what a view of our lake! Will definitely try to go back.

“Enjoyable Experience”
Reviewed August 21, 2014 via mobile

While in town for business, I stopped in for dinner on the rooftop. Rye Belles great view of Lake Michigan and the surrounding downtown area makes for an enjoyable and relaxing open air dining experience.
Feeling adventurous, I ordered the deep fried asparagus with wasabi cream dipping sauce as an appetizer. It was delicious! The perfect amount of zip with the wasabi sauce, crunch of the tempura, and snap from the fresh asparagus .
For the main course I selected the breaded white fish. It was perfectly cooked, and nicely seasoned. I did find a small bone or two (which happens sometimes) so be careful.
If you're looking for a nice date spot get away, or just a cool hang out with good food and drink...this is your place.

“Had a wonderful evening here”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

Loved the atmosphere. The weather was beautiful, we had dinner on the rooftop, had a few drinks, ordered the hummus and dinner. Food was good, atmosphere was relaxed and with beautiful weather you couldn't go wrong. Our server was friendly and courteous. They are extremely busy, so be sure to come with patience and be prepared to relax and have a cocktail. I would definitely go here again on our next visit. It was just what we needed at the end of a busy day!
