The location was perfect for my group that was passing thru. Eclectic decor located next to the River. Food was good , just as i expected. ( i was given a recommendation by a friend that vacations. there. Waitress was a little rough around the edges , but in the end , she did a credible job.

Being able to pull your boat up to this restaraunt is probably what keeps it going. The location is great, but the staff and the food is not the best. At night it's a favorite for the locals, but the locals are not fans of the tourists. It's a shame because that is probably what keeps this little town going.... More

I agree with others about horrible service and average food. However I found it enjoyable to take your time and enjoy watching all the boats while waiting. Location is what makes this place enjoyable.

Took my parents to sit along the water and have pizza. The waitress was very outgoing and friendly. Nice to see wait staff interact with their customers. Food was good. The inside of the place was pretty dated and the smell of old beer wafted out. Glad I sat outside. Everyone enjoyed the meal and scenery.

We are locals, we live in Petoskey, but were camping for the weekend at Burt Lake State Park. We stopped in Friday, late afternoon, to have a drink. We waited for a while for the waitress to come, and then we waited about 15 minutes for our drinks. Nothing special, a beer, a margarita on the rocks, a strawberry daquari... More

When you have atmosphere like this it's hard to screw it up, but they have succeeded. Service was terrible. Server spilled a whole beer on my cell phone, just cleaned it up. Never apologized, or asked if phone still worked. Left the 1/3 full beer she spilled there. We ended up going to the bar to get our own drinks... More

For the person who quoted this is "Up North" don't expect much-they gave the Inn Between great reviews but gave "Up North" a horrible one. I all so go a few times a year to this bar & grill with my family and friends where service isn't always the best but they all so don't represent all of "Up North"... More

If you go, sit outside by the water because you get to watch all the boats speed by. Waitresses were slow. Food took a little too long, but the view of the water kept us busy. Kind of expensive. Inside is filthy. Pulled pork sandwiches are really good there. Everything else is pretty decent. Food is okay, service is poor,... More
