Friendly, accommodating and always a pleasurable dining experience! Shaded summer table service on the porch, the privacy of an indoor atmosphere or being seated at tables beside a cozy glowing fireplace on dreary colder days, you and your guests will never be disappointed. For large group dinners, intimate luncheons, privately hosted parties and seasonal mini-fests with live music, you can't... More

Hawkshead has been a long time favorite of my family's! They have fantastic food with unique menu items, Lobster Bisque that is out of this world, a cozy atmosphere, and huge windows that overlook the forest! There is also lodging upstairs and a full bar/lounge area as well as a really nice golf course.

We really appreciate it when our guest go online and give us a great review. It helps other people to know what a great little out of the way place we have here, so thanks for taking the time. We love our cozy atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of busy town. Come back to see us again. More

We decided to book a weekend at the Inn and get in some much needed golf. We have played here several times in the past and this summer as well- and then usually dine here after golf. This was our first time staying though. Everything was right on par with our great dining experiences in the restaurant. We stayed in... More

Dan, Wow, thanks for the awesome review, it could be an ad for us! We love having people stay with us, it's like opening our home to them so we want everyone to be comfortable and have what they need. We realize having coffee earlier for some is a must, so we are happy to provide coffee makers in the... More

Our condo association hosted an event for the owner's, a group of 25, back in Sept and we chose HawksHead because of the pretty outdoor patio setting. Greg & staff were so flexible and easy to work with. It was a hot day & we were unsure if the setting might be too warm. Greg did everything he could to... More

Nancy, I just wanted to say thank you for taking the time to review HawksHead. We love doing groups. We host quite a few events out here and you just can't beat the views and the food, so thanks for putting a plug in for our event options. Come back to see us soon. More

This is the second sub par meal we have had at Hawkshead. Salmon oily, food cool, steak overdone. Manager was told but did nothing! Server very apologetic.

Thanks for letting us know about your experience. We are looking into your complaint and will find out what exactly happened.

Last time we were here the food was fantastic...this time, the same dish was sub-par. The whitefish was over done, dry and unappealing. The rest of the dinners were good.

I am so sorry that your second experience did not go well. You don't say but I hope you let someone know, preferably a manager that your meal was not good. Sometimes, we find that people will hesitate to say anything, we don't want that. In order for us to provide the kind of service and excellence that we strive... More

Every year we spend a few days with friends and relatives from Atlanta and Ann Arbor golfing, dining and drinking wine. Overall quality of food, accommodations and golf at HawksHead is the best overall we've had in West Michigan. We enjoyed a good conversation with Arthur Hills, the golf course architect. The staff was very accommodating too.

Fantastic choices at very reasonable prices. We had the soup as an appetizer. Both of our entrees were ample sizes and of very good quality.

I am a long time customer of Hawkshead and always find it enjoyable for dining. Whether the ravine views from the porch off the bar or the more traditional inside seating area, the ambience, service and food is excellent. Recently I enjoyed the lobster bisque (their staple soup) and the New Zealand rack of lamb, as did my brother in... More

Ronald, Thank you so much for taking the time to review us. We especially appreciate you mentioning that we are casual. There are mixed messages about our dress code and we have worked so hard to let everyone know that we are a golf course with a casual dress code. So thanks for that. We are so glad you loved...
