We spent our anniversary at the Hawkshead Inn and thoroughly enjoyed the stay and the meal at the restaurant. The steak was cooked perfectly and tender enough to cut with a fork. The staff were very friendly and attentive.

We had a slight problem with one of our dinners and without hesitation our server, Lauren, spoke to the chef and the meal was prepared anew perfectly. Everything was delicious and the service was attentive and friendly.

We just ate here this past Saturday night while visiting the area. We had reservations at another restaurant but changed to Hawks Head after the manager of the motel validated what most of the reviews were saying. From the moment we arrived we knew this was going to be a special meal. They gave us a choice of tables and we picked the room with the view of the trees which was a lovely and quiet room. The cocktails came quick and they gave an honest pour. The garlic bread was perfect and warm. There were 4 of us and each of us had a great meal. My salmon with blueberry glaze was perfect as was the sweet potato mash. I must admit that we were celebrating my friends birthday and they gave him a choice of deserts and a song. The service was as perfect as the meal. The next time we are in the area we will certainly be back.

Thank you for choosing HawksHead for your celebration. Chef Paul Adams has a way with making each Sea to Table special and his sauces can't be beat. Every dish he produces has such wonderful flavors as you found out. We appreciate the review and your visit. We hope that you bring your friends and visit us again soon.

We chose Hawkshead for my Birthday celebration. We had the pleasure of meeting Carla and she knows the menu. We took her recommendations and so happy we did.This is first class and perfect for a special occasion. Considering the food quality, the price is reasonable. We had a perfect meal...appetizer to desert. Thank you for great service Carla and to all the staff. I had a great Birthday celebration and will return. A little out of the way but so worth the trip.

Based on TripAdvisor reviews my wife and I decided to give HawksHead Restaurant a try. It is a little bit out of the way (+/- 15 minutes drive from the South Haven beach district) but the drive is easy and well marked with signs that direct you to the HawksHead resort. From the moment we arrived until the moment we finished our meal we were treated like royalty and the meal was really outstanding. I had the special of the day (sea bass) and my wife had the Lake Superior whitefish. Both were well prepared and delicious. Our server was very attentive to us and did a great job. The desserts also looked wonderful but we were too full to give them a try. Maybe next time. This restaurant is a real gem and definitely worth the drive.
