Went for a Christmas party and the buffet was excellent. They really did a great job at making sure everyone was taken care of.

The great location is this place's big selling point. We enjoyed overlooking the water and watching the ships glide by. The food was quite good, and our polite server was very attentive. It's not a gourmet restaurant, but our straight-forward meals were honestly prepared and very tasty.

Delicious steak bruschetta appetizer, wonderful french onion soup, and (hubby's ) turkey gumbo soup, both chocolate and peanut butter, and amaretto cherry cheesecake were amazing. Our server was very knowledgeable about the ships passing on the river.

Food here is very good. But, I LOVED the view with the River right outside your window. So peaceful, and they have piano players in the evening. What a way to enjoy the evening!

We've visited the Voyageur many times, and have always been satisfied with the food and the view. Just returned from our last visit. For $13.95 each of us received 3 very small perch filets and french fries. That's it. No salad. No bread. Both of us were surprised at the change, and although we did enjoy watching a freighter pass... More

We travelled across the border to meet relatives for lunch at this restaurant. A very quiet, relaxing atmosphere and beautiful scenery as we sat and looked across the St. Clair River at Canada. The menu offered lots of variety and the food was well presented and delicious. A very memorable place!

The food is very good, I had a chicken pasta dish that was excellent, and a very generous appetizer of shrimp cocktail. The beer & wine selection is... More
