This resturant was recommonded to us, from the owner of our motel. It was a very good breakfast, and the coffee was wonderful. Would eat there again.

Ate here in early October. We were staying at Crystal Mountain but decided we wanted a water view restaurant for dinner. After we drove around the little town of Frankfort we came upon the only restaurant that looked like it had a water view. Too cool to eat on their screened in porch but cozy indoor spot with a view.... More

Friendly, relaxed atmosphere with accommodating service. We ordered the chicken & cherry salad (they substituted fresh mozzarella for bleu cheese), the apple & spiced walnut salad (substituted Parmesan for feta & added cherries) and a crab cake sandwich. All were fresh, beautifully displayed and excellent. Wonderful outdoor screened patio overlooking the bay. Can't believe they have a full bar even... More

Breakfast is good here, but the reason we come here is my husband says the corned beef hash is the best he's ever had! Place is clean and staff is friendly.

We ate here two times on our 3 night stay in Frankfort. We loved the breakfast, had eggs, bacon, toast and potatoes, french toast was awesome also. Great coffee and you can sit outside and look the beautiful Betsie Bay. Our waiter (can't remember his name) was super friendly and provided great service. They also have a full bar. Their... More

This is a ma and pa restaurant with excellent servers. Very friendly. We had breakfast and it was good. They even had a "protein" breakfast so I didn't have to pay for potatoes and toast. Enjoyed our visit and would definitely place it on our list of restaurants to go back again.

My boyfriend and I went here Friday night and the food and service was great. We had the whitefish which was delicious. We also had the crab cake appetizer which was good but only one crab cake for $8.99 wasn't worth it in my opinion. The waiter suggested we try there breakfast because 'that's what they're known for.' The next... More

I've just finished eating the doggie-box contents from my delicious meal at Bayview Grille last night. I usually only eat breakfast here (love the French toast with real Maple syrup) but we decided to try the summer dinner service. As in many of the local restaurants, short-staffing is often an issue, so when we discovered the entire outdoor eating area... More

We really enjoyed our late morning breakfast of Eggs Benedict and Corned Beef Hash. We're pretty particular, and we found the food to taste excellent (yes, it really is the homemade hash - not the dog food kind). Wished I would've gotten a mimosa after seeing how they were served with an individual-size bottle of Prosecco! Our only two pieces... More
