Foursquare Tips

  • Great beet & goat cheese salad. The chef is really quite a gem!
  • Wow! Excellent seasonal and locally sourced food. Would not have expected this from White Lake, MI.
  • The crab cakes are a great way to start your meal. The perfect mix of salty, sweet and spicy!
  • Their Ribeye is one of the best steaks I've had. If you like meat you can do no wrong, and it is only $29.

  • First timers: get the tasting menu. Trust me.
