It is a cute restaurant with a cozy log cabin feel inside. The food overall was good. I liked the white fish.

Good food and a good location, it gets very busy during the holiday season so you might have to wait for a seat.

Just my wife and I for a dinner. Service was friendly and atmosphere was great but the food was not good. A shame as this place has tremendous potential. As we asked around later, the word is that the ownership doesn't really care.

The only good things about this place were Riley and Brook, who took good care of us even though the food was awful. I saw Brook bring food to the table next to us and I told my wife, "Oh my God that food... More

Pulled in on a Thursday night near the end of season. It was rather empty and a pleasant atmosphere. Service was ok but the food, not so much.

My husband went in first to check if the menu would work with my food allergies. We went in. The sign posted said "wait to... More

My fiancé and I ate here right after we got engaged at sleeping bear sand dunes. We sat in the bar area which was very nice. We each got a drink, a cup of soup and the calamari. The service was quick and friendly, and the calamari was delicious!

We went to the Western Avenue Bar and Grill on a Tuesday night. My husband and I both ordered the scallops. They were the special that night and they were amazing. The service was very good and we had a very enjoyable evening.
