First visit and wonderful experience. Greeted quickly and server was prompt and extremely nice. We were early for the 4PM dinners BUT they gladly did it anyway!!

We had feta artichoke dip that was so good we actually sold the neighboring table.

I had a lamb shank that was the best I've ever had out. Tender and perfect! It was on a bed of orzo that was lightly done in a lemon sauce and lemon zest --IT WAS PERFECT.
The bartender made a lemon martini for my wife not on the menu but also perfect---as the waitress requested it special.

We will definitely be back.

They do coneys, salads, great starters, Gyro's, sandwiches, and more--something for everyone.

Plenty of better places to visit in Traverse City. If your by the mall, you'll have other options so this place is definitely not a destination restaurant. Food is way over prices. The floors were dirty and the server and hostess hardly made an effort to make us way to stay. We were there on a Tuesday about 3pm, pretty empty, and yet the hostess made us wait for a place to sit, the place was EMPTY! Pretty pathetic if you ask us. Then, she went back to playing with her hair and not being bothered. Next up, uninterested waitress. Took our orders and that was about it. Food was just average and do not bother with the gyros, they are not worth tasting. The tap room concepts is interesting, but the food and service we received warrants not need to return to this place, and we are from TC. We were soooo hopeful, but without serious management changes or a re-tooling of the pricing and menu, this place is out of business in a year or so.

Food was less than mediocre. Service was poor. Dining area overall was unkept & dirty. Had high hopes for a Detroit-style Coney Island in TC area but this place doesn’t even come close. Poor quality food for just a Coney Island level of expectation for food quality & prep. Likely will be out of business by fall 2018 if current trends continue.

We needed a parka in order eat here. The place was extremely cold. The service was horrible. When we first entered the guy behind the bar acted like it was an inconvenience that we were there and that he had to seat us. He kept looking around for an empty table to seat us at. The place only had 3 other families eating. We had to ask for everything such as napkins, silverware, refills. The food also lacked flavor.

around 7:00 pm we went in and were seated right away, The waitress came and we both had water to start with. we decided right away what we were having as we had to be somewhere else by 8;00 pm. Two other couples came in and were seated. and had placed their orders. we were their about 25 minutes and our waitress never came back. we went up and spoke to the hostess about this and our waitress came up to the front counter and asked us who our waitress was and we told her that it was her. Then we left!
