We choose to sit outside and were seated immediately. Umbrellas, a covered area and an outside bar all at a patio setting. Very friendly staff. Waitress was really great and conscientious in working with my daughter and her food allergies. Daily specials and nice menu...More

I started off with a delicious cocktail, followed by an awesome walleye dinner, finished off with a shared dessert! Perfect evening! Great company and great food.

One of the largest restaurants in the area with seating inside and out. They have a bar outside for your morning Bloody Mary. The eggs were little greasy but had fast friendly service.

Overall a very nice dining experience. Artichoke dip was divine, Caesar salad with salmon was really good (could have used a little more dressing). Overall a nice experience and decent price. Clean, wait staff were overall helpful. Only downside, as with everything in Suttons Bay,...More

I've had breakfast and dinner here several times. Both were really good. Servers are great and welcoming. Atmosphere is pretty and comfortable. Wide variety of food so good for different taste. Outdoor area seating is large and enjoyable.

While the food is average, Trivia evening every Tuesday evening is a lot a fun and worth a visit to this downtown restaurant.

Food's somewhere between average and very good. Layout of the place is cool, with bar area on one side, dining area on the other, should you enjoy TV free dining. Daughter's cheese pizza wasn't very good, barely any sauce or cheese on it. Of COURSE...More

This place is a great local eatery. Staff is friendly and attentive. Food is consistently good. Especially their Mexican fare - burritos are huge! Tip: Be sure to ask for extra sauce on your pizzas.
