Lakeshore residents and guests have gathered at Ottawa Beach Inn year after year, reviving the neighborhood bistro and building OBI into a Holland mainstay. Ottawa Beach Inn is meant to be an extension of your home and your family, so expect good food and good people all year round.

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

This restaurant has good food, good friendly service and a view of Lake Macatawa. It can be especially busy in the summer so arrive early as seating is limited as well as the parking.

“Changing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

OBI has new ownership which seems to be trying to turn it into a high class lakeside restaurant instead of the nice family friendly local favorite. The prices have gone up and they've added high priced fish specials which are not conductive to what regulars came for over many years.

“Lots of food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2013

Wow the perch dinner was great and alot of food, my husband ordered the large and I ordered the small we could have shared. We also ordered the breaded mushrooms, which were hand battered not from a bag, we got a whole heaping plate. It is a must to go here.
