Accessible by boat and car. The restaurant is known for Fine Dining and it's suggested to make reservations. Make sure to try the traditional Michigan Adult Desert the "Hummer " and their own creation the Hummingbird. Dine indoor or outdoor

There's a real chef at work here, and the food couldn't be better. We've been dining here for many years and the new chef, who recently took over from the previous chef/owner is producing some truly delicious menu offerings. The menu itself eschews the exoctic...More
