Went for lunch with a friend, we shared a pizza and it was very good. Service was very friendly, the owner came out and chatted with us. Another friend had a pizza making birthday party here which they said was fun as well.

Delightful independent restaurant. Service was terrific and the food was very good. Sue had lasagna, Marilyn had the Italian Grilled Cheese and I had the Italian Sub with a Caesar Salad ... including optional anchovies! Clearly everything was made from scratch and with great affection. Thanks!

Went there for dinner based on reviews. Food lacking in seasoning and taste. Tomato sauce on chicken parm was acidic and straight from a can. Chicken was rubbery and watery. Pizza crust was cardboard lacking taste and texture. A real disappointment. One of the worst restaurant meals we've had.

Great Lakes Italian Establishment is a breath of fresh air in the Blue Water Area. The food presented I was outstanding, great with home made taste and not like chain diner food. Give them a try, you will not regret it.

the food here is basically freshly made Italian food. This is a little restaurant and the food is prepared from scratch after you place your order. This does take time so go with a loved one who you like to spend time visiting. The food is made to order so you can add or take away items so you can have your food prepared with our favorite items. We have eaten here several times and tried different items from the menu and almost always like what we order. I recommend the Chicken Parmesan, Omelets, Salads and soups. My family also likes the Ravioli, spaghetti and pizza. Closed on Mondays
