My wife and I eat lunch here several times each summer they have a great selection of salads and other lunch items. The view of Little Traverse Bay is outstanding. If the weather is right they have small porch you can dine on.

After reading other reviews and seeing their menu online, we knew we had to try this place (we had avoided it for years because we thought it was too fancy for our tastes). What a wonderful surprise and now our new favorite dining stop when we are in town! We were there for lunch and the menu offered wonderful selections....for only $10.00 I had a very creative and delicious meatloaf with mashed potatoes, an awesome deep gravy and sautéed vegetables. My husband got the 'restaurant week' lunch offering which was a 1/2 slab of pork ribs that were falling off the bone with a chipotle/cherry sauce, sweet potatoe fries, cornbread (it was awesome) AND an apple tart dessert for $15.00. The waiter was very good, the view of the bay was beautiful and relaxing. The only downside was an employee who was working in the kitchen talking very loudly to her co-workers about her truck problems....her voice really carried above the music even.

Great menu! Relaxed atmosphere. The service was good but would have been exceptional if the were not short handed that night.our waiter was very gracious and friendly even thou he was a little flustered since he had way too many tables to take care of on his own and did a great job under the circumstances. I will eat ther again next time i vist petoskey area.

The whitefish sandwich was amazing!!! My husband had the special of the day a whitefish sausage pizza with avocado sauce and he love it. The salad was crisp and the dressings were made daily there. Our waitress Tracy was the best! We sat out on the patio, with a view of Lake Michigan. What's not to love about this place? We will be back.

Perfect weather made this venue's location overlooking the bay ideal. The whitefish spread was excellent. The whitefish grenoble and walleye were very good entrees. Nice menu and adequate service.
