Wether you are a tourist or a local, "OBI" is the place to park and partake in anything on their menu. You can sit outside (weather permitting), by the window looking out over Lake Macatawa, or by the fireplace. If sitting at the bar is more your style, there is a spot for you. They can accommodate larger parties, but... More

Best way to end a day at the beach. Good food, friendly helpful staff. They even made me a low carb burger although it's not on the menu. Something for everyone and reasonably priced. My only complaint is that they close for the season before I'm ready to give up those beach days!

Still the best perch dinner around. Good service and food was great. If I had one criticism it would be the Garlic Toast. OBI used to have the best garlic toast around. I looked forward to that like I do the perch dinner. However, the new garlic toast is just toast with hardly any Garlic. Would like the old toast... More

A group of 6 of us dined here on a Friday night. Short wait for a table outside. Service was good and the food was excellent. Among the 6 of us we had the crab cakes, perch, & grilled cheese. The crab cakes were very good, with only a small amount of fillers. The side of mashed potatoes were really... More

OBI is not the restaurant it once was. Do not like the new menu. The food we ordered was OK, but like bar type food everywhere. NO longer serve the Kabob, which was a nice entre. A basket of onion rings is costly.

Went here on a not-so-busy Friday night. Actually, expected it to be busier but they closed about an hour after we got there. Everything was great. Local fish, local beer, and good service. Check the hours before you go so you don't miss out!
