We had our anniversary dinner at Grey Gables. The calamari and roasted beer salad were amazing! However, the service took forever, didn't tell us of the special, which is what my husband wanted. We asked several times for the same things and it was just beyond frustrating for what we paid. Again, our appetizers and entrees were delicious, but they... More

Grey Gables used to give customers their age in discount on their birthday, so at 65 I thought I would get a 65% off discount (I have done this in previous years). I even asked the waiter if they still did the Birthday Discount, because even though I am on their mailing list and email list I rarely get any... More

We stayed at the inn next door and walked over for dinner. The 4 of us took advantage of the early dinner option that included salad, entree, a bottle of wine to share, and dessert. The whitefish meal was very good, as were the other dishes my companions enjoyed, and you couldn't beat the price. The dessert was the only... More

Seating is in a restored Victorian home. It's just refreshing to share a small round table with friends and family in one of the small wonderfully designed rooms, invision going to Grandma's a 100 years ago. Food was exceptional, try the chocolate bread pudding. It was my friends birthday, and I let our wait person know. My friend did not... More

This has been a place I have been coming to for most of my life when summering in Charlevoix. Old house converted to a nice place to eat. Early bird 2 for $44 can't be beat. Entree, bottle of wine and dessert. Right on the edge of the Belvedere with beautiful family homes. Wait staff are great.

Most amazing, tender, delicious steak I've ever had. You seriously need to get the hanger steak and be in heaven for days. My only wish was that I didn't eat the whole thing so I could have enjoyed it the next day too!

I had the Baked and Stuffed John Cross Whitefish and it was terrific. Normally whitefish is a very mild fish, not as mild as flounder, but close enough for a reasonable comparison. It is available throughout Northern Michigan (and is generally caught locally). You can find it broiled fried, etc. etc. It is so plentiful that locals frequently grow a... More

I had been here once before and was not impressed. This time the food and service was fabulous. We came for the dinner had specials for whitefish from John Cross Fisheries and a beef burgundy dish.

Our friends recommended Grey Gables Inn as being a favorite. We were settling in ordering our drinks and another table arrived with a small child. Yikes! I thought our night was ruined. The child proved to be a delight. Our server, Stone, was personable with a nice smile and very patient and helpful. Our starters were the mushroom bisque -... More
