We like to eat dinner here every once in a while because we love to drive up M-22 the 10 miles out of TC where we live. Or we take 72 west and the north on the Leelanau Peninsula for country views which are great! And sometimes this way has much less traffic! We share their Perch dinner and we love to sit on the deck overlooking Omena Bay which is off of Grand Traverse Bay. The outside seating is on a deck level with the roadside entry, but from the back where you park (along the water) you can either walk up steps to the front or up deck steps to the deck and then inside to get on the seating list. Recommend getting there by 5pm for busy dinner nights like Fri and Sat especially in the summer! Every time we eat there, there is a crowd because it's so good at a reasonable price but we wait at the bar and eat their free YUMMY popcorn and have a drink. Sometimes our 11 y/o son is with us and he likes the choices on the kids' menu still and it's reasonably priced. So is the menu items. Kids dinners come with a veggie and something else you choose. I like to get a bowl of their seafood chowder too, very yummy, white sauce. We wait every time to sit OUTSIDE in the summer so we can feel the breezes of fresh lake air and see the beautiful water. Boats can dock there too. One side of this building is Leelanau Wine Cellars which is a nice place to taste wine since you're there already! The service at the Knot in Omena is wonderful - very accommodating and they know their stuff. They are experienced wait staff. The host/hostess does a great job of getting you seated where you want and keeps you up to date with the time, etc. You will eat sooner if you sit inside and you can see outside! If you have room in your tumtum, try splitting their amazing chocolate dessert! Or eat it all yourself! Ooh la la!

One of the highlights of our summer is to cruise our boat across the Grand Traverse Bays to a nice little cove in Omena, MI. There we can anchor and take our dinghy in to the docks and have dinner at Knot Just A Bar.
The views from the porch are spectacular if you love to see water and Old Mission Lighthouse.
The food is outstanding with the Perch Cones our all time favorite. The burgers are great as well as the wings.

We have eaten here on many occasions and still love it. Just a great, reasonably-priced eatery with super servers, an expansive memory, out of this world French fries, and situated smack on the water! Highly recommended.

We were very pleased with this restaurant. The setting was beautiful and casual. The view was inspiring and restful. We got a bit dressed up, but there were also those who came as is. The fish was great. The service was polite, attentive, and professional.
