Description: North Peak is a fantastic brew pub with a culinary experience like no other. North Peak has burgers, seafood, steaks, pizzas and the best hand-crafted micro-brew around. Our restaurant is kid friendly and has something for everyone. You can head downstairs after dinner for live music at Kilkenny's Irish Pub in our lower level below North Peak. No need to go anywhere else! We have all the good food, fun, music and beer you will ever need all in one building. Hope to see you soon.

“Lots of potential”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

My husband and I ate dinner here last night. He ordered the pesto salmon with rice pilaf? and I had the hanger steak with gouda red skinned potatoes and curried haystack onions.
What I had to say is that this menu has too many adventurous items to really perfect one. Potatoes with onions seemed like an odd pairing and then to throw curry in the mix was bizarre. The steak tasted off - not horrible, but not good. The salmon was drench in pesto.
I suppose if I were to go back I would stick with ordering a burger. The beer was mediocre. We had the Irish Stout and the Amber. The Amber was quite tangy for an amber.
It was also a bit pricey for being a bar/brewery.

Great atmosphere. Good service. Bad food.

“Good family style restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We had lunch here while on vacation at Traverse City. The ambience was very good. The quality of food was good. I had the vegetarian nachos and it was very good. My family had burgers and a seafood dish and they enjoyed their meal as well. We had a very pleasant experience.

Enjoyable meal - the service was very good, as was the food and atmosphere. Reasonably priced. Club sandwich and fries were great.

“Ok food, high prices”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

We spent $60 for a dinner for two which included a pasta dish and a burger with appetizer. Sure I expect to pay a bit more for dinner in TC but I think the prices were a little high. But, the building and beer selections are pretty nice.

Though, we arrived relatively late at 9 and were told there was a 10 minute wait. We looked around and saw numerous open tables (not the high tops which are self serve) and were slightly confused.
