Every time I visit Traverse City for business or pleasure, I stop here, especially during Happy Hour. Excellent cocktails, wine selection and service. Divine ingredients. Superior Chirashi bowl. Big city vibe on Front St. Luv.

Seems like a local place for younger people to drink early. Hard to get a drink if you’re not seated right away. I think making reservations would make it easier to get faster service.

No, but they have "small plates" that would be appropriate for children. Basically they're just smaller versions of the other dishes. No hot dogs or PB&J however.
