I always get worried when a really good restaurant renovates & expands. No worries here. They did it right. The newly renovated Terrace Room is fantastic. The seating us comfortable. Although they more than doubled their tables, the restaurant has not list its intimate feel. We've eaten her twice fir dinner and twice for brunch in the last month. Service... More

Alex, our server provided really excellent service. We had the grilled octopus appetizer which was very good. The also have a series of Bruschettas, inventive salads and soups. My wife had the excellent lamb shank and I had the spaghetti carbonara. Everything was prepared perfectly. Nice wine list and the ambience is superb. A gem in New Buffalo.

Wonderful dinner. A variety of choices. We were a party of 8 so there was a variety of food. Everyone enjoyed the food, ambiance, and the wait service that made our meal a pleasure. Amber was our waiter, and she added to a most enjoyable experience.

This is a nice place for a drink and appetizer. We didn't have dinner but the food looked good. At first the bartender the kitchen was closed when we wanted to just order a cold plate app but then a manager came up and said they would check. We got our app, good recovery. It was right at 10pm and... More

I wrote the first glowing review when the Terrace Room first opened. We just had their 2016 New Years Eve special dinner and it was exceptional - as good as anything in Chicago, much less Harbor Country. Chef Alberto has really brought the food to a whole new level. It was not only very high quality, but inventive. Charred octopus,... More

This is the restaurant on the ground floor of the harbor grand hotel. At night they light an indoor fire and if you ask, they have a huge fire pit outside that can be lit. The dinner menu is pretty pricy, but we just ordered drinks and sat by the fire. It was relaxing and cozy.

The newly redecorated dining room is an audio nightmare. Someone went to great expense to take a once-cozy place and transform it into a barn where every surface in the room reflects sound -- wood ceiling, brick wall, stone floor, granite table tops. From any spot in the room you will be forced to listen to the conversation from just... More

While I enjoy the Stray Dog, if you are looking for a dining experience at a lower volume, a shorter wait time for a table (at least for inside) and with fewer children, this is the place for you. Lovely setting within the Harbor Grand hotel. There is outdoor seating on a patio. Recommendations are encouraged for an outdoor table,... More

We happened by this place after declining to wait for an hour and a half for lunch at Stray Dog. It is just across the street in the Harbor Grand. It is upscale but casual enough for lunch. The beef sandwich was spectacular and the thin, crispy fries were great. The lemon drop martinis were average, but every plate that... More
