“cold outside - warm inside”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

We were seated right by the fireplace on a cold, snowy January night - awesome! Good service and such good comfort foods! I enjoyed the BBQ smoked 1/2 chicken dinner and my husband enjoyed the Smoked Beef Brisket dinner. Cozy, rustic atmosphere - a quiet evening for us.

“Always a favorite”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

The Blue Tractor has become our "go-to" place in Traverse City whether we want a meal or just a drink. The food and service have always been great and the atmosphere, while lively, does not prevent you from having a quiet conversation if you want to. A great place to watch a sporting event with your friends.

“Busy place but yummy!”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

The food and service was good. The place was packed. It's very loud so it works well for young children.

“Warm winter coziness”
Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

Great place to escape the snow for some tasty comfort food and a cocktail . Cozy and warm booths, rustic and woodsy bar, perfect for Traverse City. Mac and cheese choices with a pint pwrfwct on a cold day. I'll be back in the summer too.
