“Delightful Delicious ”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

We were driving up to Mission Point with no restaurant in mind. This place appeared to pop up out of nowhere, but we noticed some locals going in so we decided to give it a try. To start, the gallery was delightful. We were there for lunch and seated immediately. Ice water was immediately served along with drink request. We all ordered ice tea and were delighted to find it was real sun tea!! When we asked the waitress if the soup was gluten free she immediately asked the chef. The food, including the soup, was truly homemade and the soup was gluten free!! Bottom line: service, food, ambience and staff all outstanding. Best meal we had in Traverse City!!

“Food is always good here”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

We had prime rib, lamb chops this time that we both liked. Fresh green beans with almonds were especially good. An extra bonus is getting to walk through the attached art gallery after dinner.

“Fun, Funky, and Good Food”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Come and dine in an art gallery on the Old Mission Peninsula. This is a fun little place that has a magic about it that keeps people returning. The food is very good and reasonable prices.

“Very elegant, great food, and service”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

Very nice restaurant my wife and I visited on the Mission Peninsula. The service was excellent, professional and speedy. The decor was very nice and elegant, but yet inviting to the family on vacation. The food was excellent, although my salmon was slightly overcooked, it was still flavorful and the presentation was very nice. Priced right, great ambiance, great service, would highly recommend this to anyone traveling in the area.

“Small mistakes.”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

The soup (beef-barley) was excellent. The entree (whitefish) was very good as was the salad. However the bread was served at room temp and the both the rice and green beans with the entree were just barely warm. Service was good. If the items mentioned were served at a proper temp I would of moved my rating up a notch.
