We were at the restaurant on Mother's Day. The food was very good but a little pricey. The cinnamon roll was delicious! The atmosphere is so so. We had reservations so we got right in but after we ordered we waited a long, long time for the lattes to come. Our friend had to ask 3 or 4 times when... More

A true culinary experience in the heart of Downtown Fennville. We loved that the food was locally and seasonally sourced. Our meal was excellent, and the service was impeccable. They are known for their cocktails, a must when vacationing. Beautifully restored building, modern yet welcoming atmosphere.

Amazing farm to table experience. I normally never order chicken, but made an exception here... glad I did. It was delicious, definitely not something that I could recreate at home, therefore it was a nice treat for me. We look forward to going back again.

We went at around 8 pm on a Saturday evening. Low lighting filled the rustic restaurant. Couples were on dates and many girls appeared to be having a girls night out. We were told there would be a bit of a wait despite our reservation, but the hostess was very accommodating, leading us to the bar to have a drink... More

The food was very fresh and delicious. It was a Saturday evening and they have a stage so some live music would have been appreciated, but no complaints.

A surprise to find this gem in a small town. The "cheddar crackers" and the smoky pizza were unique and delicious. My husband ate the "pressed chicken" which was good but not a stand-out. Several reviewers recommended the S'mores dessert - we tried it but didn't think it was worth the calories. The bread is fabulous! Order a loaf to... More

My husband and I could not have been more impressed by the food! Healthy, Whole Foods that were tasty and filling! The bread was amazing! My husband had the spaghetti and he loved it so much! Especially the meatballs. I had the tortellini and that was amazing as well! 5 plus stars for sure! We highly highly recommend eating here... More

Delicious birthday dinner with excellent service, great beverage selection and cool atmosphere. The S'more dessert was amazing! Loved how specialized the menu was and all seasonal, farm to table local ingredients! Bravo.
