Food and service are invariably outstanding -- don't let the "cafe" in the name fool you. The locally-sourced meals always taste as good as they look! As well, the choice of eating indoors or on an enclosed porch overlooking a marina on Betsie Bay is a great asset.

We were both in the mood for some beef, so we enjoyed their hanger steak dinner. Delicious, and very well prepared. We sat out on the covered patio with a nice view of the harbor. Great service too!

Good friends, whom we were visiting, took us here for dinner. What a treat in a wonderful little town. Service was excellent with knowledgeable waitress, food was very good and the wine choice, a local chard, was terrific. Little pricy, but not overly so. We sat on the enclose porch at the rear of the restaurant, which is highly recommended... More

The tuna was prepared properly and I enjoyed the flavor. My wife enjoyed her whitefish and our waitress was good and we had just a wonderful dining experience.

Had never tried this restaurant because it is either closed (off season) or we got to out favorites. We sat on the patio because it was a nice night. The service was great. The menu is limited but offers a good selection. We have now added this to our favorites list for the area.

Took our adult kids to dinner here recently. All five of us had delicious dinners! Specialty drinks were also quite good. Sat on the screened patio and enjoyed the water view. Wait staff attentive and friendly. Reservations needed in season.

Do the wait for the patio; worth it! But wherever you sit; the wine and food take over and you'll have a great evening. Service is excellent; owner is attentive. Please do yourself a favor: order the Whitefish; even if you don't eat fish! Wow!

Consistently good, this restaurant gets it done. They have a front dining room and bar and a back porch dining area. Good service, decent wine list and a dedicated owner on the premises for quality control.
