We just spent an incredible 1st anniversary weekend at Hawkshead Inn. The food was fabulous, we especially enjoyed the "Potato Cracker Blue Gill", a local favorite, and you cannot forget the Lobster Bisque! The rooms were wonderful, each unique in their own way, we were allowed to check them all out as we arrived early. The service was exceptional in the restaurant and on the course, to top it off breakfast was delivered each morning right to our room. The golf course was in great shape for early season. Highly recommend this for a couple get away. In fact, we are going to make this an annual event.

P.S. Sunsets over Lake Michigan are always fabulous!

We tried the Blue gill which was suppose to be their house specialty and you could have done better going to the frozen food section of your local market and bought fish sticks. We had the waitress switch our meal to the salmon and that was good and cooked just right. Their Lobster bisque was quite good and so was the service. Being that it is attached to a golf course you pretty much get what you would expect being in the environment that it is.

First let me say that we appreciate you taking the time to write a review for us. We believe that our customer is always right and we strive to bring satisfaction to your dining experience with us. We apologize that the Blue Gill was not to your liking. We get the Blue Gill fresh and then hand dip them in our own homeade batter. We realize that is is more suited to the Mid Western palette and therefore not agreeable with everyone. Thanks for rating our service, the Salmon and the Lobster Bisque as satisfactory to you. It is our hope that you will look beyond the Blue Gill experience and give us another try.

My colleague and I spent a 3-day, 2 night winter retreat the first weekend of February and again the last weekend of March at HawksHead! A great value and a great way to de-stress during the winter. We enjoyed the Ice Breaker Festival, Chili Cook-Off, and cross country skiing HawksHead #1 and #9 fairways in February! In March, we enjoyed a relaxing craft weekend of painting story stones from our South Haven summer beach collection. As central Illinoisians, we love the fact that in 4 hours we can be relaxing on the North Beach, golfing at our favorite HawksHead or enjoying a winter retreat! The staff even had an additional table in room #1 for our crafting this time!
