The restaurant is on a bluff with nice views of Lake Michigan, especially at sunset. This is an old-time dinner restaurant, the menu has traditional dishes. The sauces are heavy. For my taste, the dishes are just OK. The service is just OK. If you want a great view, this is the place. If you want a great meal, look... More

The food is very good and the restaurant has a long distant view of Lake Michigan. I ordered the White Fish which was exceptionally good, but it was served cool. I think it sat under the warming lamp too long. They were very busy and we had a large group. The parking is rather limited so be prepared to park... More

On those days we just don't feel like cooking... we run to GMI to have a LOVELY dinner!!! Depending on how we feel, we either hit the dining room or just pop into the bar... More

My husband and I come here when we can. We like the coziness when sitting at the bar. Sally is outstanding with her attention toward us. Sometimes we just dine on appetizers while other times it's a full dinner. We haven't been disappointed yet. Looking forward to our next visit.

This restaurant has a New England feel. The food is very good. The service was quick and the server gave the right amount of attention. If you can find a sunny day in Michigan, the sunset is fabulous.

We come here all the time, for many years. We always have a super experience. Last night was my wife's birthday and we went to celebrate. I asked for sauteed calamari and got fried.

For locals who don't travel much I'm sure this place seems very good. The staff is fantastic and it's family owned which is great. Most people will be happy here but for tourists or business meals I'd suggest the extra drive over towards South Bend for better options. The 4 seafood entrees between us weren't bad but they weren't great.

Family owned. Excellent food every visit. Excellent staff who are very attentive. Most of servers have been there for many years because they love working there so much. Not a bar person, but Cranberry Bog very popular. Beautiful Lake Michigan sunsets. Can get loud at times, but fun. Reservations recommended. $$$
