SWC is rather run-of-the-mill tourist food. It's not a lot of money and if you don't expect too much, you won't be disappointed. We caught a night with a disinterested server, and draft beer was delivered with hardly any bubbles and not real cold. It...More

One of my favorite places to eat in MI! It doesn’t have a view, but the food is well worth it! Quirky and fun.

Salt Water Creek is a hidden gem in the Inlet. Since finding it, I come at least 1-2x a month. Food and Service has always been on point. From their managers to their serving staff, everyone is friendly and attentive.

We have visited several times. Most recently for Easter Brunch. Food is always good and the specials very reasonably priced. Service is excellent. Can't beat the quality for the price at SWC. We enjoy the weekly specials and the happy hour options. Always meets expectation.
