I've eaten here twice in the past month, both times at the bar. The bar tenders provide great, attentive service. Of course the food is delicious, starting with warm breadaticks! I'm a big fan of the portabella ravioli, but the standard lasagna is always good....More

The Chicken Giardino was excellent, and didn't "break the bank" with calorie intake (a mere 600 calories). Service was excellent and fast. We had a great experience.

Recently called in a take-out order on a Friday Evening. When placing the order I was told that it would be ready in 15 minutes--I barely got to the restaurant in time. The order was exactly what we ordered and the food was fantastic.

Clean, good food, nice staff and I've never gotten a wrong order, wrong drink or had to wait too long to be seated. Busy on summer weekend nights, but good for lunch as well.

All employees were very friendly. The restaurant and the restrooms were clean. Our service was fairly quick although not accurate at each step. The positive for us was that it was close by Interlochen.

While camping at the state park, we experienced very heavy rain that caused a flash flood in camp. None of us wished to stand in the downpour in several inches of water so we headed to the restaurant. Service & food were very good. We...More
