Great food at a reasonable price who could ask for more. A true inspired restaurant that lived up to it's reputation. A definite delight for the palette!

“Great food, solo dinner experience”
Reviewed June 16, 2014 via mobile

I had a great meal here, the prime rib was cooked perfectly: juicy and delicious. The service was just as good. I went early-ish, around 6 on a Monday and was seated outside immediately. My server was friendly and went out of his way to be unobtrusive. I also appreciated the fact that although I was alone, I was treated as well as the larger parties that were present. I would highly recommend amical to anyone wanting a great meal while visiting Traverse City. By the way, I had the Blackberry G &T. Wonderful!

“Over Twenty Years in Business Tells You Something!”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

As we were outside of Amical checking out the menu first, a party of four was entering for dinner and one of the men turned to us and said: "Your at the right place"! We just smiled, but then he actually came back out to tell us: "We're the locals and have been coming here for over twenty years and that should tell you something about this food, it's the best in Traverse City"! Well, say no more!

I ordered one of their special cocktails, a Cherry Smash, it was a slightly fruity drink, not really sweet and had maybe 4 Mi cherries floating in it, just excellent! Hubby had a Bellaire Brown Ale. I ordered the night's special fish dish over a rice melody, fabulous, with the addition of the house salad and hubby, the menu's chicken breast with a flavorful sauce and herb mashed potatoes , also with a side salad and we split one strawberry/rhubarb cobbler. Our bill was $84.80. We didn't feel it was out of line for fine dinning with excellent service and the place had a nice atmosphere along with outdoor dinning too. We highly recommend it along with "the locals"!

“Good food but pricey”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

Had a nice dinner, but it is pricey. Next time would hit there for lunch which is priced more reasonably. Nothing really outstanding. -Outdoor seating is surprisingly quiet despite being on the street side.
