had some great fish but was overpriced IMO for that town. their menu is a blend of hipster foo foo bistro and downhome continental and they should focus on one or the other. the chips with cheese app is horrendous so pass it by.

This is a historic building in the area and it is nice to see the restaurant being well run. The service was very good. The menu was a nice mixture of traditional food for the area (Prime Rib or Lightly breaded and fried perch) along...More

A real find....right on the lake, great views during dinner on the patio. Kayaks available. Rooms are spacious and paneled....it's not a chain hotel so don't expect that. But do expect to feel your blood pressure drop 20 points !

Food and service OK. Limited menu, but atmosphere was very good. Alcohol drinks very expensive, stick with beer on tap.

No fries in your perch basket for $12. 3 Tiny fillets and 1 pumpernickel toast and 3 bites of slaw. Service not good. I live in Muskegon and we have much better restaurants and value than this. Don’t ever plan on returning.

We had a light early dinner on a Saturday evening. We were the second table in a light and pleasant main dining room. It filled up quickly, but was not noisy. We could enjoy our conversation, cocktails and a fine meal.

The food was mediocre, small portions, and average service. Nice lakeview! We all felt the prices were very high. Disappointing!

Do not get the whitefish basket. I got 4 very small fillets smaller than the little frozen ones at the grocery store. There were more fries in my childrens kids meals. Not worth the $21. Steaks and filets were good.
