One of the few peninsula restaurants that serves both lunch and dinner. Reservations accepted which is nice since few restaurants in Traverse City accept reservations. Food is okay and service is good.

Nice quaint place with great food and lovely staff. No view, but not important since the whole peninsula has views. There aren't many plaves to eat on the Peninsula and we didn't like the crowds in Traverse City, so this was a win. Beautiful artwork...More
