This beautiful victorian house was the perfect venue for our 50th wedding anniversary dinner. The setting was quiet and serene and the food and wait staff exceptional. We had drinks on the outdoor patio as we waited for the room to be set up. After dinner, all 20 of our guests raved about the food and the beauty of this... More

We had a great dinner, as usual, at this Charlevoix landmark. The duck is phenomenal, and the mushroom bisque is the best I've had anywhere. Our waitress, however, seemed disconnected and distracted. She took our orders brusquely, then couldn't remember who had ordered what. We felt like we were a chore and an inconvenience. Bummer since the GG usually does... More

This is situated in an old house, recently updated. The bar is a great gathering spot and has nice booths for casual dining. The menu has a blend from Haute cuisine to BBQ ribs. There is talent in the kitchen. Prices are average for the area, entree's from $22-38. The service was efficient and friendly. It is a very loud... More

We were in Charlevoix for a long weekend for a fall color tour during the peak color. Visited the Grey Gables restaurant on a Saturday evening. Wife had the scallops which she loved and I had the Hawaiian fish special that was very good. The server, Pam, was very friendly and gave us a little history of the restaurant and... More

This place was suggested by the locals, and it was very nice. Quiet and they offered two meals that included a bottle of wine at a very affordable price. Food and service was excellent!

This venerable old building still has the charm, the service, and the food to keep me coming back. If you want to savor a fine meal, in a sweet atmosphere, just footsteps from Lake Charlevoix, then put Grey Gables on your bucket list.

My dining companion had wanted to dine here for decades. He finally made it, and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious, and the setting was delightful. Service was uneven, but not bad.

My husband and I had excellent service and good food. The place is an old house with several different dining areas. Our waitress was fun and professional and willing to make suggestions. If you are in the area and would like more of a romantic/quiet meal, this would be a special place to dine.

This was our first visit to Charlevoix, so checked Trrip Advisor for restaurant reviews. Read through reviews for most of the top rated restaurants & finally decided on Grey Gables. Located off the main drag in what I would describe as an older Victorian Era home. The exterior of the building is yellow with white trim. There are several dining... More
