Four of us ate there. We did a variety of small plates which we shared. All of the food was good. Very good beer selection as well as martini's. A must if you are in downtown traverse city.

No, but they have "small plates" that would be appropriate for children. Basically they're just smaller versions of the other dishes. No hot dogs or PB&J however.
