Stopped by with family and friends for lunch during the Cherry festival. Lunch (sandwiches for all) was very nice. BBQ sauce on the rib sandwiches was commented upon by 2 at our table to be slightly too sweet. Overall, nice ambiance and quality.

I love everything about this restaurant, except the parking lot. Very hard to find a place when busy.

Food, service, decor, prices, bar, seating, outside bar area, menu choices, cleanliness of bathrooms/restaurant/grounds-- all are perfect in my view. One of my very favorite places, anywhere.

I ordered my fav dish-whitefish. Perfect in taste and presentation.

Highly recommend !!

This place has an incredible view but you need to have patience - this place can have 2 hours waits -
We didn't have the greatest meal last time we went but they did make it right

Where to start? Sitting in the open air dining room looking out at what looks like the deep blue waters of the Caribbean was only the start. Austin was our server and was excellent. He just did everything right. There were seven of us and our choices ranged from the black bean burger(amazing) to the feature, fresh Mahi, the Mahi was excellent with root vegetables and pineapple salsa. We had drinks at the Tiki bar on the bay after dinner. This place is simply paradise, you have to experience it.

Read the reviews and decided we needed to go while in Traverse City. There were 2 large parties with between 12-17 people in line in front of us, so we were told there would be a 90 minute wait. We had cocktails while we were waiting overlooking the water. No problem finding a place to sit and enjoy the scenery. Very good service outside.
I don't think we had to wait the full 90 minutes, but when we finally did get a table, the food was outstanding. My husband ordered the pecan crusted whitefish, which was excellent. I had the nightly special of whitefish with mushrooms and cherries. It sounded strange, but it was just perfect! The loaded Mac and cheese was awesome, too. Our friends ordered the rib eye and salmon. They were very pleased with their meals.
Great atmosphere and view of the lake, great food, great service!
