It's a comfortable cozy restaurant with good food and good service. Their lake perch seemed to be right out of the lake.

I was looking forward to a special dinner. Maybe it's true that distance lends enchantment.
But even after an hour's drive to get here, the anticipation and expectation did not engender a special experience. It wasn't bad, by any means, it just wasn't "special" or extraordinary. And for a half rack of ribs with a handful of fried perch, $30 seems just a little high for that entree. Our wine was $8 and $9/glass so that's reasonable. The whitefish special was $25. For OK flavor. Perhaps if the sky wasn't clouded over we would have at least had the enchantment of a nice sunset.
The tables are very close together which, although maximizes guests per square foot, puts the backs of chairs sometimes bumping against a guest at an adjacent table. Certainly, there's nothing special about being crowded.
Charity, our server, was very good. Although she was quite busy she was attentive, helpful and pleasant. She also boxed up our leftovers for us which was a convenience.
Whether or not the sky is cloudy, I'd recommend asking for a table next to the west window. Although it overlooks a driveway, somewhat of a view of Lake Michigan lies beyond and it's better to have that space on one side of your table than being squeezed in next to a group of loud raucous guests on all sides. Besides, there is the possibility of a view.
In any regard, make sure you get a reservation. It must be that a lot of people are enchanted with Grand Mere Inn. I'm just not one of them.

Regardless of the type of cuisine you prefer, the menu will have something for you.
The staff are great and the food is wonderful. The sunsets over Lake Michigan are spectacular as viewed from the windows in the dining room. A great place to go.

Grande Mere is on 5800 Red Arrow Hwy, Stevensville, Michigan and our FAVORITE place for dinner. Not only is their food top quality and delish; the scenery is too as it overlooks Lake Michigan. Wonderful staff too, it's worth the trip!

The Grand Mere Inn came highly recommended to us during our weekend visit to the area for a wedding. I absolutely see why, and will definitely be returning for another wonderful dining experience! Upon our arrival we were greeted by the owner Charley, and seated at a wonderful table overlooking the beautiful view. The entire staff was very professional and attentive. 3 people in our party ordered the Salmon special for the evening, and 1 ordered filet. The food was served hot, and perfectly prepared to everyone's liking! Thank you for a great evening!
