We stopped in for a late breakfast. The food was yummy and our server was enthusiastic. A tight fit inside, but overall a nice meal.

We visited Charlevoix Michigan without recommendations. For Sunday breakfast we picked this restaurant because they were really busy. I ordered a pulled pork omelette. Never heard of this before but it was really good.

Walking through the quaint town of Charlevoix, came upon this little restaurant on a side street. Small, but with room outside, we sat down and had one fantastic breakfast! My wife had an outstanding BaconJam Omelette! Wow she says! Bacon and Jam had a wonderful...More

Heard good things about it.But I felt average at best,but paying for gormet.agree McDonald's has better breakfast for the money.maybe they think because it's a tourist town it's okay? Willing to give another try.Try a different option because did hear that it was good.

If you run out of protein on Memorial Day weekend, and you pride yourself on smoked meats. Just stop serving. I should of just left, but I gave you a chance. I wanted over-easy eggs on my biscuits and gravy. They weren’t and you knew...More

This place always makes excuses for everything they do wrong. The prices are outrageous. Just another of the many Charlevoix tourist traps. McDonald’s is a better option.

The Drunken French Toast is to die for and the Eggs Benedict is awesome too! Unless you are a HUGE eater you only need one piece of the French Toast

Stopped in after doctor appointment in Charlevoix- immediately knew it was the real deal when you walk past the smoker. Lunch menu is limited to a few sandwiches- pork, smoked chicken salad and sliders. I opted for Pork sammich- it was outstanding. Breakfast looks like...More

Delicious, freshly made breakfast. The bread and biscuits are home-made. The sausage gravy was very tasty and had a ton of sausage. The portions were generous. Everything was so good, we bought some bread to take home. Staff was super friendly and welcoming. I would...More

Smoke on the Water a BBQ joint. We slow-smoke our meats with various fruit woods and maple wood in our smoker that sits right outside the restaurant. We pride ourselves in serving made-from-scratch food, including our own Challah bread used in our Drunken French Toast. We deliver to all downtown businesses and the marina. We are located next to Hoffman Park which overlooks the channel and bridge.
