Elk Harbor was closed in Oct 2016 and sold for a non food service use. It will become a veterinarian hospital

During a trip to Michigan, my wife and I visited the Elk Harbor restaurant with her sister and husband on our way from Northern MI to Traverse City. No one had been to this restaurant before and we were hungry so we thought we'd give it a try. The interior was a bit dingy and the table that we were... More

Mold on the ceiling in the entry way when you come in! Very old inside, really needs to be up dating! Very slow service! Food like eating out of a can tasting.

Have had breakfast here twice, both times a little below average. Odd set up with a closed off area and service table in the dining area. Looks like it's been that way and decorated without change for a long time. It's a somewhat limited menu, so they should have it down, but the food is pedestrian at best. Sausage gravy... More

We stopped in for breakfast and they have House Favorite breakfast specials that we decided to try. I got the House Favorite #1 Special Eggs, Meat, Cakes or Toast – 2 eggs, 4 pieces of bacon and 4 silver dollar pancakes for $7.35. You could get 2 pieces of bacon and 2 sausage links or 4 of either one. The... More

Kinda Mom & Pop style. Limited hours. Breakfast anytime which was very good. Limited waitstaff. Pricing very reasonable. Has small hotel attached.

If your looking for hearty breakfast to start your day this is the place. Omelets are very good and they are loaded with whatever you like on the inside. Very friendly restaurant with good food.

Elk Harbor Restaurant is just plain bad. The dining area is split into two rooms. Upon entering the restaurant, we were greeted with a smell of dog food and fish. This is not a good first impression. The staff is minimal, as was the service. Server was not particularly friendly and did not take a drink order (other than water)... More

My wife and I stopped here for an early dinner while we were in the area. There was only one other table filled when we arrived and only one other person walked in for a cup of coffee before we left. Not exactly a hooping place on an early Saturday night. Interior certainly could use some updating. Food was bland.... More
