We arrived while there was a pretty good crush of people in for the Venetian fest. For us supper time was about 7:00. We got a really good waitress who was a tad flustered due to the crowds, but she still had a great smile and a "let me get that for you" attitude. Both of us had the prime... More

Tried this place based on Tripadvisor. We've vacationed in and around Charlevoix for a few years and had never heard of this place. We had the whitefish dip and bang bang shrimp for apps. Both were good but slow on a not so busy night....apps came out after our salads actually. Salads were good...my daughter really liked the balsamic dressing.... More

My boyfriend and I went there for the marina view and the menu looked good but this was terrible. We arrived at about 4:30 pm and were sat on the porch, the view isn't even that great since there are decently sized trees covering it from every angle. Ordered the fried pickles which were your pretty typical beer fried food... More

We came in on a sailboat and were at Northwest Marina. It is a very easy walk from the marina to the restaurant. We had a good meal and the service was very pleasant, prompt and attentive. We all would return.

good food, good location near the water. I would recommend sitting out on the porch if it's a nice day. Had lovely view and a nice breeze coming in. Would certainly return.

We were looking for something on the water, reasonably priced and with a kids menu. This place fit the requirements! Plenty of seating, so our party of 6 was seated immediately at 5:30pm on a Friday evening. Perfect. Our meals took a little while to get, but our beverages were full and the conversation/company was fun, so we really didn't... More

We visited Kelsey' on May 14th at around 5:45pm. We sat on the bar side as a party of four. First off, we were sitting at our table for about 15 minutes before our waitress even asked us about drinks. Then she forgot about one of our drinks. We waited for another 10 minutes to place our order where then... More
