I already talked about how terrible this place is in my Grand Traverse Resort review. Here is some advice, skip this place the food is not worth waiting for when the staff have attitudes and act like you did something wrong by coming in. Oh and if you want breakfast call ahead apparently it depends on who you talk to... More

We only ate here for breakfast each day. The prices are reasonable for a resort restaurant. The food was really good and fresh. We would for sure eat here again when we come back. Also if you get a free players card at turtle creek casino you can present it here for 10% off. Same as all the resort restaurants... More

We visited sweetwater cafe for lunch as well as dinner during our stay in the Grand Traverse resort. We wish they had more option for entries and appetizers. Service was definitely quick and that was expected.

We had breakfast, which was fast, reasonably inexpensive with excellent service. Staff was friendly and helpful. They have lunch and dinner also. Will try them out sometime.

Don't waste your time or money!!! The food is horrible!! If you walk past this restaurant near the lobby and see no one in there, it's for a good reason. We had a quick and disgusting dinner. Don't recommend.

I made a huge mistake not checking trip advisor! My waitress was horrible. It took ten minutes to put my order In. I had to ask her for a drink after she took my food order. She never spoke, she just mumbled. She never came back to ask me how my horrible cesear salad (brown, no parmesan, hardly any croutons)... More

Limited offerings, expected more from the main restaurant in a fancy resort. Food nothing special, not bad but not overwhelmingly good

For this caliber of hotel the service should be better at this restaurant. On one occasion, Our waiter had two tables and could not keep things straight. The food wasn't bad. The soup was actually delicious as was my salad. Food was served promptly. The atmosphere is decent as well. I ate here several different times and service was always... More

Food was very nasty. The wait staff was not nice. We waited on our food for over an hour. I asked for something to be taken off my bill cause I only took one bite. He said he will need to get the manager to take it off. Wow just not a good place to eat.

We ate at this "bustro" for dinner on Sunday before Labor Day this week; this was our first night at the hotel. The lighting is so bright in the restaurant it had zero ambiance and the music was quite loud as well (blaring); it had a utilitarian feel, not a bistro. The waitress was perfunctory in her duties, just going... More
