We've been here several times, but this was the first time I enjoyed a bite at brunch time. I ate lightly, but the soup and salad combo was perfect. The house salad had pomegranate seeds and was simply delightful.

The menu is a bit limited for breakfast, but the choices are very good. The service is great. We has 2 different dishes with scrambled eggs, they were very good. This is not your average bacon & eggs restaurant. My only complaint was the bread, brioche sounds good, but toasted is a bit to hard.

We had the chimichurri sirloin for dinner - awesome choice. Perfectly cooked. We also had a brief lunch here. We shared the fish and chips platter. Really delicious, enough for two people.

A smallish and quiet spot on the harbor with excellent food and atmosphere. Take in a early meal or wait until dark to enjoy The ambience.

My favorite place to eat in New Buffalo. Located right in the marina has a nice outdoor area, indoor seating with a view and a wood fired oven viewed from the dining area . Breakfast and brunch are great here, lunch and dinner have creative and delicious choices every time. The pizzas are best in town and offer original topping... More

The food is quite good and the ambiance lovely, but overall, the staff leaves you with the feeling of doing you a favor by serving you. There are lukewarm greetings and little personal exchanges. One should feel more welcomed for the price.
