Stopped here for dinner as staying in Glen Arbor. Food was good as well as the beer ... although thought the beer was a little expensive. Service was good and timely and the facilities clean. Would certainly eat here again.

We stopped here for dinner on our way around the peninsula. They never disappoint here. The parmesean encrusted whitefish is to die for. Great service and an awesome atmosphere.

The only thing somewhat unsettling of our visit here was the lack of clientele. We had an excellent meal (perch and whitefish), the service was just great, and the ambiance of our meal on its porch was just fine. We just hope it can be...More

We were there in October 2015. Food was very good although pricey. Our complaint was the service. It was as if staff enjoyed working together more than actually working. Party atmosphere with little service. Very... More
