We first seated in the restaurant but moved to the large outside patio near the water. Very nice.Very large parking area, easy access. Appears to be a fairly new building out in the middle of nowhere but easy to find.

Daryl does know how to cook! The menu is quite extensive and unique for Jackson: shrimp/lobster omelettes, Bananas Foster, etc. Very fresh ingredients and tasty. Good service. Right on the lake.

The waitstaff was very friendly and prompt. The food, was excellent. Three of us ordered the seafood pasta special and one ordered the Victory pasta, all... More

The chef offers a flavorful menu from seafood to steak or pasta. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The portions were hearty. We enjoyed the live music with cocktails before and after dinner.

If you was a nice dinner this is the place to go. Inthe summer you can eat on the lake front, watch the sun set over the lake. Service is fast and friendly

If you live (or are visiting) in the Irish Hills area (think summer on the lake), this is "THE" place for a nice meal, service, views and atmosphere. Has nightly specials and frequent entertainment. While the closest "city" is Jackson, is by far better than anything Jackson has to offer. To top The Point, need to travel to Ann Arbor... More

Food is always good and now that Daryl is on board it has kicked up a notch and prices have come down. Service can be spotty though sometimes it is great and then it is just so so. It needs to be consistent.

A lot of times you find that beautiful locations do not always have good food. This one does! I have been a few times now and have not been disappointed. We have always had great service, and great food. This is a destination dinner worth the drive. They have outside dining as well as a really beautiful interior. They have... More

Thought we'd give the Pointe a second chance--even worse experience this time. Two couples went at 6:45 on Tue eve. Poor service ( one waitress for entire patio--should have had more help), took 35 min to get beer and wine to start, 60 min to get soup (lukewarm), salads and bread--only 4 and 1/2 rolls ( was told would be...
