Great restaurant, friendly staff, wide selection of choices. We had lunch on a rainy day, when we couldn't take the boat tour of picture rocks.

The food is not fancy. We were not looking for fancy- just good! We enjoyed it. The service was VERY SLOW. The serving staff were very nice, but we had to wait an inordinate amount of time to be seated, given menus, our orders taken, and food being served. The obvious problem was that it was late in the tourist... More

This was my second visit to the Navigator. June was so hot, we didn't stay to eat. I vowed to never return to this restaurant because of the way I was treated. I found myself with a group of 6, on this visit, so I couldn't refuse to go. The breakfast was average, service, minimal, and food is overpriced. I... More

I went to this restaurant because it was very close to the Picture Rocks boat tour lot. They have average American food. I had the whitefish sandwich with fries. My fries were cold, so I had to send them back, but they gave me news. I thought the fish sandwich could be better since Munising is known for whitefish. Overall,... More

Located on the corner where people board the cruises to Pictured Rocks helps this place stay afloat. They have breakfast all day too which came in handy for us. It was a warm day so windows and doors were open which the flies liked too. they seemed a bit disorganized and in the weeds but when breakfast came it was... More

The service was very slow. One waitress running like crazy. Owner was present and did nothing to help the situation. The place was full midweek and they were not prepared.

If you want Whitefish over cooked and dry, a side of vegetables that are still frozen out of a steamer bag, and rice that is just plain white rice, then this place is for you. They didn't even get the type of bread correct on my wife's grilled cheese sandwich. No wonder there were so many dead flies on the... More

Our server was Denyell. She was polite, kind, used manors!?! The food was delicious! I got eggs over easy which they were!! Toast done perfectly, bacon done perfectly, crispy but not crunchy, hash browns were done perfectly! We got to sit at a table with a beautiful view. Super nice since we had a bad experience with a couple other... More

My husband and I had just got into town on a rainy Wednesday afternoon after driving up from Lapeer, Michigan. When we walked in, the sign said wait to be seated...and wait we did. For about 5-10 minutes...while we listened to someone in another room talking loudly and inappropriately. There was only one other patron and just when we were... More
