Amical is consistently excellent, year after year. Their menu is always changing and they recently started something similar to an early bird special. Prices may seem a bit high but after eating you will think it was worth every penny.

My husband and I go to Amical every time we are in Traverse city. The staff is very professional, the food, the wine and management are amazing. We recommend trying the Black bottom cake 😍 Olive twists and lamb shanks are good as well.

Was in Traverse City visiting family and decided to give Amical a try and was not disappointed. Food was delicious and the drinks were too. The salmon was amazing. Outside seating was fun. Definitely worth the visit!
