This restaurant was recommended to us by Angela at the Best Westren Plus. It was just what we were looking for quaint, water view, excellent food and great service. We look forward to dinning in the future at Harrington's By The Bay. Thanks for a wonderful dinner and to Angela for the suggestion.

We had dinner here one night while in town. The food was amazing! My favorite thing was the bacon wrapped shrimp, can't wait to go back.

Perfect server, attentive, friendly, and food was excellent. Their pastas and steaks are the best. We went on a Saturday night, and reservations are a good idea.

Came here with family for dinner celebrating my birthday.

Meal: We got a variety of meals for dinner from fish, to pasta, to salad. My Tuna was delicious and done properly to how I ordered (rare). Talking to family, their meals were equally done well. I would classify the food as upper-mid scale, the food is better than most other restaurants in Traverse city, though not a 5-star restaurant. But what they do they do very well.

Staff: The staff was very kind and accommodating, we showed up without a reservation and they were able to find us a seat despite it being quite full. They were also very kind for my birthday and gave me a complimentary drink (which was very good) and a dessert. They were also helpful when it started raining (we sat outside) and a group of 3 or 4 waiters immediately came out and helped us move our food and drinks to a table under cover.

Overall this was a very pleasant experience with food that they do very well. Its no 5-star dining, but it is perfect for a night out or a family dinner. I would go back in a heart beat!
