This place was a staple in our places to visit for dinner during ski weekends at Boyne Highlands. We always thoroughly enjoyed. While it wasn't the most busy of places...the food and service was always very good. I will miss their "Awesome Coffee" after dinner...More

Wonderful service, solid, delicious food plus a view? It all comes together at Whitecaps. The staff was attentive, food was well-prepared - and, of course, that view - even at night - it worth the experience.

Our selection were very good. Appetizers were very good as well. The wait staff was very accommodating also. Only thing we didn't like was the over anxiousness to remove plates from the table with food on them while still eating.

As local residents, Each time we go we discover a new entree we like, and the servers are friendly and helpful with their recommendations as to the chef's specials

We went to the bar to have some drinks and watch the sunset. The restaurant was busy but we could have gotten a table if we wanted one. We had a nice chat with the bartender and a few other guests. We have eaten here...More

Whitecaps has a very good menu and service is great, but you are paying for it. Bill for just two with appetizer and one drink each was $80+ with tip. Not for family vacation. Atmosphere is mostly adult.
