This is a beautiful restaurant at the Marina in Harbor Springs, looks like it has been recently redone. We sat on the patio, unfortunately where the restaurant parks their boat, it blocks most of the view. We had the escargot and the bruschetta. The escargot was tender and garlicky, just the way my husband likes it. The bruschetta had carmalized... More

You can't lose. Dudley's is as close to the harbor as you can get and the food is very good. Perfect for a casual lunch, or even a quick cocktail. Even better, try the Pier for a somewhat more formal setting.

Renovations are great. Food is good not great. They are chinsey on stupid things like salads could use a few more lettuce leaves. Order a burger and Fries are extra-Really! What burger doesn't come with fries. Sans the chips! No one wants chips with their burger! A few tweaks like err on the side of "generous" on your portions. Cole... More

My hub and I and another couple (60s ) had dinner here outside with a wonderful view of the pier and the boats coming and going. Great for rubbernecking. We had fresh fish and enjoyed the meal, service, and harbor scene. It's our favorite restaurant in Harbor Springs. Casual dining with a price.

Limited places to sit in shade. Go early. Appetizers delicious. Waitress friendly but was eating food when we first arrived and did not check appetizer dishes (1 not clean). We had a party of 8 but waitress did not accommodate us to split up bills. Two orders came incorrect. Did correct order. No fresh ice tea. Limited refills. Pricey on... More

On a one week trip to upper Michigan, this was the only place that I can honestly say did not serve entirely predictable and average food. I had a perch sandwich and the SO had a chicken salad, but both were very fresh and seasoned both perfectly and in an interesting manner. Would go again anytime.

We were not impressed by Dudley's Deck. We were hoping to have an apertif before dinner at The New York. We met up with another couple that arrived before us and just couldn't get served at all. Totally ignored by waitress. V. disappointing.

Went for dinner with extended family early on busy Holiday weekend. Service was excellent as was food. Same menu as inside. Kid's menu had nice choices. Only thing to consider is umbrellas come down as dinner service starts inside so be prepared for sun on nice day. Good view of harbor.

Love sitting on the deck with a great summer salad and a nice drink! Service is always very good. This is part of the Pier restaurant so the food quality is top notch. It's fun to pretend to be rich, looking at all the fancy yachts in the harbor.

The waitstaff were friendly to everyone, families included. The morel mushroom soup is not to be missed! I'd go back just for the soup. The sandwiches were okay. I'd also go back for the lovely view of the harbor. Great location!
