The food can be hit or miss, but more often a hit. The ambience is great and the view off the back is even better. In the heart of downtown petoskey, so a great location!

I had their small pizza on special thin crust. It is perfect for one person. Great for breakfast too. Always save room for homemade cookies. They are the best.

This restaurant is small, but very nice. Bay view, and excellent food. The wine menu was varied -- but a bit out of date we found. Service was excellent as well.

Best steak salad I've ever had. The service OK. They seam to be understaffed. Our server took good care of my dog. Thanks

Whether indoor or outdoor dining the views and landscape are breathtaking. They mask the city streets that pass near the outdoor tables with tall ornamental grasses and trellis growing plants. The food reminds me of farm to table dining. Staff are friendly and inviting.
