  • 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!
  • The steak was $78 and worth every penny.
  • 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.
  • 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).
  • Had a terrible experience. Was treated poorly by wait staff who rushed us out of the restaurant, didnt refill any alcoholic beverages, never checked on our meal that was cold and over cooked
  • Very disappointing. !! Went there for the lamb chops. Overcooked and flavorless. The special stuffed prime rib dish also overdone. Way overpriced.
