We stopped for dinner after a day of fun at the great wineries in the area. Knowing that there are not too many places for seafood, we thought we would give this a try. The food was wonderful and service was great! The calamari had the best dipping sauce!. I would go back in a heart beat!

Everytime we visit Traverse City we plan to eat here. We originally tried it based on a trip advisor review . We have never been disappointed. The lobster bisque can't be missed. My son loves the whitefish, but everything there is delicious. The salad with the dried cherries is tasty. We love the sweet potato and the mashed potatoes, hard to choose. The prices are reasonable especiallyu considering the quality and the view - right on Grand Traverse Bay! Parking can be challenging at this popular restaurant. We love it!

This restaurant is beautiful as it is right on the lake with huge windows and the style is Wright influenced. However it also has a weird theme restaurant vibe beginning with the fake bear greeting you at the front door. The food is pretty standard American fare but it is solid. Probably a great place for a family.

Every time we go past the place is packed so we finally decided to try it out. The food was very good, service was excellent and you cannot beat the view of the bay. We will be back!

If people are willing to wait up to 2 hours to eat here, doesn't that just about say it all? We went on Sweetest Day knowing ahead of time that this restaurant does not accept reservations & that we were going to have to wait. I would highly suggest going an 1 1/2 before you would actually like to eat to give yourself plenty of time. This is a meal that you do not want to have to rush through once you are finally seated. We were seated at a table right next to the window looking out to the water. The drinks, salad, & entrees were absolutely amazing, not 1 complaint at our table of four. Try the blackened ahi tuna or western barbeque shrimp, both delicious. I ordered french fries as a side & they were nothing special, go with the mashed potatoes instead. We will definitely return to this hot spot whenever we visit Traverse City.
