    We've actually eaten here half a dozen times bringing the most important people in our lives to enjoy it over the last several years. Always been happy with food, presentation and service.

    Lobster was great as well as the wine from Black Star Farms. The creme brûlée topped with cotton candy and pop rocks served in a tin container left a lot to be desired though...

    The calamari steak is excellent start to the dinner. Interesting how the chef comes to talk to patrons but always ignores the tables with females only-Three out of three visits in a row.

    Great spot for lunch with a view. The Pizza Maine is incredible: lobster, crab, arugula, garlic, and goat cheese. Fried duck wings with blackberry bbq sauce are also amazing.

    A wonderful restaurant overlooking West Grand Traverse Bay. Amazing food, beautiful ambiance and spectacular views. I highly recommend! Try to get a seat by the window or on their deck.

    Overrated. Save your money unless you're specifically out to impress. The location IS gorgeous.

    The whitefish is absolutely amazing! Very pricey but so worth it!! Sit outside on the patio if at all possible. Kid friendly as well!

    Must try: The Japanese Kobe beef steaks. Unique drinks (if you ask) too: like muddled cucumber martinis and different styles of Manhattans. Great views, right on the water (ask for a window seat). Read more
