The waitstaff wad very attentive. A warm and cozy room

“If you want to waste your money, then this is the place for you!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014

We have been staying at the Inn at Bay Harbor for nine years now, and it's been great over the years. We've eaten here at the bar several times, and have had good service and food in the past.
This year however, it has been aweful!
First, we came in and sat ourselves because the host wasn't present for about ten minutes.
Second, the server was terrible. Didn't come at first for a while, barely checked on us, and when he finally put on music it gave the feel of being in a nightclub. The songs were very obnoxious and the music was loud.
Needless to say we will be going to a different spa, if not just done elsewhere.

“Cozy but lively spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

Always delicious and always a nice crowd, this is great lounge where you can watch sports, play board games, watch the sunset, listen to live music or just hang out and dine. Whichever way you go, you cannot go wrong!

“Just order this...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013 via mobile

Over the years, this bar has been hit and miss, but there is one gem on the menu: Bacon Cheddar Cheese Burger. Made with a generous helping of Plath's bacon-a local favorite butcher. Other choices on the menu have been average for me. This is a bar/lounge. Ok for kids, but ideal to sneak away for a drink and a burger, and watch a little football.

“Casul Dining with Live Music on weekends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

The guitarist-singer on Friday night was very good, as was the meal. The best part was the Tigers game was on the TV and the Tigers beat Cleveland indians. (We're Michigangers) Outdoor dining is available, and the sunsets are fantastic as you overlook the water from any seat in the place, inside or outside.
