Service was very friendly. Artichoke cheesy app was delish. Root beer short ribs were tender but really dry. Hamburger average. At these prices, more was expected.

Stopped here for dinner as staying in Glen Arbor. Food was good as well as the beer ... although thought the beer was a little expensive. Service was good and timely and the facilities clean. Would certainly eat here again.

Motorboater IPA is good and the shirt is way cool also. Food is overpriced for the amount served. I had perch and received three small pieces with fries! Must have ordered the half order LOL!
