Looking for a good place for our 30th anniversary dinner. Schelde's was good but not great. I guess the food and service in a different setting would have helped. The entire meal was very good. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. Just don't love the location and the building. Maybe they could upgrade the interior.

Another great meal at Schelde's. 10 Sirloin Steak medium, home made Garlic red skin mashed potatoes, and mixed veggies. Also fresh baked bread hot out of the oven. One of favorite places to eat in Traverse City, Michigan. You gotta try it and then you'll be hooked.

We've passed this restaurant many times when visiting TC, but never went in until our group had a dinner there. The food was really great, and portions generous.

We stopped here for dinner and we have not been here in years. The broasted chicken was very good and we absolutely loved the bread. Service was friendly. They should work on how loud they speak to each other in the kitchen area. It ruins the atmosphere while you are dining when you can hear the staff talking so loudly... More

They may need some upgrades to the restaurant but you will not be disappointed with the food. Their french onion soup is the best in town and their Bourbon glazed steak is to dye for. I have yet to have a poor experience at the place and their staff is so friendly, seeing management walk around and help and make... More

Excellent food, even though the menu was simple. The staff should have been better educated about the craft beers. Cool animal mountings on the walls.

This restaurant appears to be trying to upgrade the facility. The food is good, but not spectacular. The sidewalk along the outside of the building needs attention, as it is very uneven and rough.

Ate here with friends last week while on color tour. I ordered the whitefish sandwich. Which arrived blackened, to my surprise. It took a few bites to realize why it tasted odd. In general, the food wasn't anything to brag about, but the decor, cleanliness and location were good. Our server was very attentive and pleasant. All in all a... More
