Foursquare Tips

  • The calamari steak is excellent start to the dinner. Interesting how the chef comes to talk to patrons but always ignores the tables with females only-Three out of three visits in a row.
  • Try the Dover Sole and Adelsheim Pinot Noir
  • Overrated. Save your money unless you're specifically out to impress. The location IS gorgeous.
  • The whitefish is absolutely amazing! Very pricey but so worth it!! Sit outside on the patio if at all possible. Kid friendly as well!
  • Very expensive dinner options, good for romantic dates if you're not the one paying.
  • Great view of the lake
  • Excellent service and food. Go at sunset to catch the beautiful view. Perfect date night.
  • The view is spectacular. I had swordfish. Best I've ever had. Highly recommend
  • Great good and a great view of the bay!
  • We've actually eaten here half a dozen times bringing the most important people in our lives to enjoy it over the last several years. Always been happy with food, presentation and service.
  • Lobster was great as well as the wine from Black Star Farms. The creme brle topped with cotton candy and pop rocks served in a tin container left a lot to be desired though...
  • Great spot for lunch with a view. The Pizza Maine is incredible: lobster, crab, arugula, garlic, and goat cheese. Fried duck wings with blackberry bbq sauce are also amazing.
  • A wonderful restaurant overlooking West Grand Traverse Bay. Amazing food, beautiful ambiance and spectacular views. I highly recommend! Try to get a seat by the window or on their deck.
  • Chef Eric is a class act, turning out excellent food.
  • Get the kids a Sparkling Pomegranate!
  • Must try: The Japanese Kobe beef steaks. Unique drinks (if you ask) too: like muddled cucumber martinis and different styles of Manhattans. Great views, right on the water (ask for a window seat).
  • Very disappointing. !! Went there for the lamb chops. Overcooked and flavorless. The special stuffed prime rib dish also overdone. Way overpriced.
