The Ardmore is my "GO TO" place when I want to impress! The ambiance can't be beat! Whether a impromptu dinner in the bar area, a special occasion meal in the porch room or one of the main rooms, or a special occasion shower/banquet, etc...this establishment can flex and cover it all--elegantly and deliciously. Christmastime is special, as the whole... More

Almost don't want to review this restaurant because I want it all for myself. We enjoyed a really lovely Friday night dinner. Such warm hospitality, good food, and lovely atmosphere. The meal was very good and our server did nothing but enhance the overall experience. Ladies, there's even a gift shop within the house! Gentlemen, you will feel you have... More

Please upgrade your food such a lovely venue that is so thoughtfully done and a pleasure to visit. It would be awesome to enjoy house baked goods for a few seasonal specials.

I had the pleasure of attending a baby shower at the Ardmore Café which hosted approx. 25 ladies. The Maurice salad was not only delicious, but a trip down memory lane (JL Hudson Maurice salad). Not only was the salad very good, the service was as well. The Ardmore Café is very charming, quaint and definitely worth walking throughout the... More

I came with four girlfriends for lunch. The decorations for Christmas were outstanding and meticulously arranged. However, the lunch was mediocre. The grilled salmon and mashed potatoes were both dry, with the potatoes having at least a degree of taste over the salmon. Fresh veggies were precisely that, fresh and colorful, but all were bland, not a spark of creativity... More

I was so happy to see the guys back managing this place after a few years of being a bridal shop. It is better than ever! I have loved this unique place in the Shores for over 30 years. Recently I attended a baby shower here. The food was delicious, the atmosphere very classy, and the service superior. If you... More

Atmosphere is elegant, but that was the end of our enthusiasm ended. The service was slow even though it was not busy. Some of our group returned their drinks and food, which took forever to be exchanged. The quality of food was ok, but not good.We did like the live piano.

We recently celebrated my mother's birthday at Ardmore Park Place, bringing in 15 for lunch. I enjoy this place because I love the ambiance of the old Victorian building. It's nice to wander about the place and shop in Urban Attic, a boutique featuring unique Michigan products, after dining. There are also a couple of hair salons in Ardmore Park... More

We went last week and found this place to be quite unique. I'd say the food was somewhat average but it's worth the trip just to look around the place and check out the decor. We went for lunch on a Wednesday and enjoyed looking through the different rooms and visiting the shops that had unique hand crafted art objects... More

The allure of mismatched furniture and china, nick-nacks and dusty silk flowers was lost upon me ... but I was hopeful that the meal would overcome the decor. I was wrong. We (3 of us) were one of three parties in the restaurant on a Friday night. We were given 4 different menus: their regular menu, the specials menu, the... More
