The restaurant was a mid-week stop on a week long stay in Traverse City. It was by far the best food of the entire week. Well worth the short and scenic 20 minute drive north of town. The atmosphere was welcoming and the food exceeded all expectations.

After a long day wine tasting this was just what we needed. The Grounds were beautiful and the food was amazing! I got the burger and it was perfect! The cherry limade is to die for. It is made with their cherry vodka. if you want to do a tasting than get there early.

This is a favorite "drive to" pub near home in TC. The beer and food menus are great and setting in an historic barn with seasonal outdoor patio overlooking Bowers Harbor can't be matched so close to Traverse City! There's a gift shop in the pub. And Jolly Pumpkin is on the same site as gourmet Mission Table restaurant so... More

I cannot say enough great things about this place. We frequent the restaurant in Ann Arbor but this location is very neat! Comparable menu but some different options which was fun. The complimentary yellow curry chips and sauce are great and of course the truffle fries are the best! You cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. Make sure... More

Our family had a wonderful Easter breakfast. Staff and atmosphere were outstanding. However, please advise chef to back off on the hollandaise sauce on the Eggs Benedict. It was overpowering. Our waiter was outstanding!

This restaurant is a great place for friends to get together. We have had our work Christmas get together here three times. There is space for us that is slightly set apart from the rest of the diners but not in a private dining room. The food is great and do is the service.

We were so happy to have chosen this beautiful location for our group dinner! The food was great and the cocktails were even better! We loved that it was a bit out of town and the wonderful service and scenery! I think our servers name was Danielle and she was awesome!
