“Contradiction”
Reviewed 20 July 2010

Sorry to have to take an opposing view. Unfortunately a very creative and appealing menu is offset by shortcomings in the kitchen. For starters, a simple sprinkling of salt and pepper would have been a big improvement on the otherwise bland and tasteless preparations. The signature stuffed whitefish was a particular disappointment, but it seemed that everything on the table lacked flavor. On the bright side, portions are large, prices are reasonable, and service is top notch. When the highlight of the meal is the complimentary chocolate dipped strawberries after dinner, something is amiss. If you're looking for expert preparation from the kitchen, look elsewhere.

“Interesting menu, delicious food”
Reviewed 24 June 2010

I had the tuna and my mom had the whitefish stuffed with lobster - the latter was the better of the two. You get to choose three sides, and they give you complimentary chocolate covered strawberries with your check. The lamb vegetable soup was amazing, salad was delicious. We were only able to eat half of our meal, so we brought the rest home! I thought that it was better than the Weathervane.

“Our favorite”
Reviewed 21 January 2010

My wife and I have a second home in Charlevoix and LOVE the Edgewater Bistro. The staff is excellent, the food is great and the prices are unbeatable. Ambience is cozy as well. My only gripe is that they were open last winter and are now close for six months over the winter.

We had a terrific lunch of whitefish at Edgewater Bistro. Large servings! The restaurant is small but food is good and price is very reasonable.
