Great food! So glad to find this restaurant because it's not the usual "meat and potatoes" type of restaurant. Nice change. They get many of their vegetables from their organic garden - amazing! It gets crowded during the summer months so make a reservation. We...More

Very old school, but everything was delicious. The house made garlic bread is CRAZY good, pace yourself. The Blooming Tomato appetizer was a great surprise ( again, served with house made crostini).

Had a really great meal at the Courtyard. I had chicken tetrazzini which was excellent. Our food was served very hot. Side salads were good. The blue cheese dressing was particularly good as was the honey mustard. Very good garlic bread. Very generous portions.

Been to the Courtyard many times, too many to count actually and thought I owe this great place a review. The food here, in my opinion, is the best available in Alpena! Service has always met or exceeded expectations. The perch and halibut are 2...More
