The food was the BEST!!! The atmosphere was great! We had the Rocket salad and the cheesy BLT which was both outstanding. Service was very friendly and good. A must visit if you are in the Traverse area.

Good food; nice service... best view. Such a glorious day sitting outside, having a relaxing lunch. My salad was fine; liked the dried cherries and greens but chicken was really dry. Smoked white fish dip was heavy on Mayo and served warm, so not my...More

Cool Distillery & great beer choices. The menu is like every other Jolly Pumpkin location, however, this location is beautifull & charming. The outside seataing overlooks the beautiful bay, with a comfortable cocktail area. The building used to be Bowers Harbor, and has a vintage...More
