My parents and I have been coming for dinner for over 15 years. It's a friendly place where the owners and waitstaff know your name. The fried perch is yummy. The salad bar is comprehensive. The service is efficient. It gets crowded for dinner on...More

Old Channel Inn is definitely a dining experience to savor. The place exudes atmosphere. Service is good. I understand the burgers are great. It is a relaxing place next to Lake Michigan.

This place was a little difficult for us to find but well worth it. The food was awesome and it's got that summer cottagey feel. Parking can be a challenge as it is an old converted house but once inside the staff is attentive, helpful...More
