There is not much to say about the Rowe other than wonderful. The menu changes per season and when fresh items come available. Wine selection is beyond explanation. Quality of food preparation and plating is beautiful. Highly recommend.

“Anniversary Get Away”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

Food was exceptional. Great dining experience. We were there for our anniversary dinner and they printed our names on a personal menu and framed it for a keepsake.

“Great dining experience”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

We've been going out of our way to visit this restaurant once every several years. It never fails to impress. Even though it's off the beaten track, it is what you expect to find in the countryside of France. We stay at the House on the Hill across the street and dine at The Rowe. Excellent wine list, knowledgeable staff and terrific food. It is a lot of fun.

“Fine Dining in No. Michigan”
Reviewed 9 October 2013 via mobile

We happily celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary at Rowe Inn. The restaurant is intimate and cheerfully decorated for the fall season. I loved the artisanal peach martini made with local peaches. Of equal billing was the beet salad, rack of lamb, apple cider pork chop, and scrumptious peach Melba for dessert. We will definitely make a return visit!
