We sat on the back patio and enjoyed the spinach and artichoke dip with a glass of wine. Followed it up with lava cake. Delicious and relaxing!

Great casual spot. I took my kids to sit outdoors. I enjoyed chicken tacos- I would happily order again. Burger looked amazing too! Waitress also recommended white fish taco.

Biked the Leelanau Trail north from Traverse City. Good lunch spot with outdoor patio. Our group enjoyed the homemade turkey sandwich on cranberry walnut bread, BBQ pork and whitefish sandwich served with fries. Quick and attentive service, refilling our water and ice tea frequently.
