Here's what they don't tell you about this restaurant: the kitchen also services the sports bar, room service, and all the condos on the property. That means going during any meal hours is going to result in woefully slow service and mediocre food. They just don't have the facilities to keep up with that many orders. We went here for... More

We ate at about 7;00 p.m. so it was very quiet with only a few guests. There is a wide variety of food. I had a burger with fries. The sweet potato fries were excellent, but my medium well burger did need to go back for some extra time on the grill :)

We went to this restaurant for the breakfast buffet on both Saturday and Sunday mornings of our weekend stay. The food was very tasty, slight variation each day and an omelette station both days. The server was very polite and helpful, checking on us often. A great experience each day.

We ate breakfast here because it was convenient and we were short on time. I ordered the french toast. My husband ordered the salmon eggs benedict, and we got both kids pancakes. My french toast tasted like cinnamon flavored sponge, and the bottom was a suspicious gray tint with black speckles. My husband said the hollandaise was terrible. My two... More

I already talked about how terrible this place is in my Grand Traverse Resort review. Here is some advice, skip this place the food is not worth waiting for when the staff have attitudes and act like you did something wrong by coming in. Oh and if you want breakfast call ahead apparently it depends on who you talk to... More

We only ate here for breakfast each day. The prices are reasonable for a resort restaurant. The food was really good and fresh. We would for sure eat here again when we come back. Also if you get a free players card at turtle creek casino you can present it here for 10% off. Same as all the resort restaurants... More

We visited sweetwater cafe for lunch as well as dinner during our stay in the Grand Traverse resort. We wish they had more option for entries and appetizers. Service was definitely quick and that was expected.

We had breakfast, which was fast, reasonably inexpensive with excellent service. Staff was friendly and helpful. They have lunch and dinner also. Will try them out sometime.

Don't waste your time or money!!! The food is horrible!! If you walk past this restaurant near the lobby and see no one in there, it's for a good reason. We had a quick and disgusting dinner. Don't recommend.
