We really like El Cozumel. The food is very good, service polite and swift and a good value. You may dine outdoors overlooking Lake Michigan, which is special.

We have had two family birthday parties at El Cozumel. The entire family enjoyed the singing in Spanish and having the birthday person receive their cake in their face! I'm sure we will return for another event.

Good food, good beer, and a great view of Lake Michigan when the weather is favorable. There is nothing like sitting on their patio having a beer and some quacamole and watching the sun set over Lake Michigan. Try it you'll like it.

We enjoyed dinner at El Cozumel twice while in town and enjoyed it both times. They have a lovely balcony that looks out over the lake. The service was excellent. I would not hesitate to visit this place again.
