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.

I will start with saying I love Grizzly Peak and Jolly Pumpkin, but I HATE Kilkenny's (next door). So when my Fiance wanted to eat here, I was coming in with mixed emotions. In the end, it was a very enjoyable experience. I had a rib eye, and she had a chicken sandwich. I would say my biggest issue with the food was that the steak was not the star of the plate. The potatoes and asparagus were phenomenal, and the steak was ho-hum. And thin. I have never had such a thin, weak piece of meat. It was cooked properly, but it also needed salt. Her chicken was apparently amazing, but she did make it a point to mention to me (about 20 times) that the edges were burnt. Service wasn't terrible, but yet, it was very apathetic. I think we saw our waiter 5 times the whole meal, and we never got glasses of water. As to beer, I had an oatmeal stout, which was better than most of the beer I have had here previously.

Loved the White Cheddar Ale soup. Walleye was delish and the service was very good. My mom had the Cherry Chicken Salad and the Grilled Chicken Pizza, it was all very tasty.

Just ate with a large group at this Brewery. They have very limited choices for gluten free meals. They do not have a gluten free menu, but some information on gluten free choices, etc salmon, steak, salad. No potatoes, no desserts, no bread. The hanger steak I odered was good, but still a slight risk because it was marianted and had a slight gluten risk. The asparagus, although not a gluten free isssue, were the largest asparagus I've ever seen a resturant serve. (small asparagus are the choice here, not large) There are so many better choices in Traverse City that have much better gluten free options. I would hope this brewery might consider some more options in the future. (Try Bubba's or FireFly. Much better choice)

Wonderful array of tastey food choices, but hard to hold a conversation because the acoustics are so bad. Great Beer by the way!
