Table was ready and waiting for us, Wait staff was prompt, but the flow of people was tight with the placement of the serving tables. Very good salad selections.

Good food. Solid. Salads
Good food. Solid. Salads were served on warmPlates so salads were warm and limp. Otherwiseno food complaints. Service was decent. She tendedto disappear at times and not every entre can be amazingand"my favorite". I had salmon. Boring grilled salmon andwas told I was a man after her heart. Just a little overthe top and then condescending. Just be yourself. Sheseemed nicebut overall a good solid meal

I have been coming here for
I have been coming here for years and they are excellent each and every time. I don't think I have ever had a bad experience here...they are all good! We started off with the raw oysters (excellent), followed by Clam Chowder, then scallops for me and Rainbow Trout for my husband...all fresh and excellent. It was my birthday so the server said I could pick a dessert so I picked the Strawberry Charlotte which was...of course excellent. Waitstaff was friendly and attentive, food was wonderful and came perfectly timed. We left happy!

only thing that bothered me
only thing that bothered me was i asked for a candle on my dessert and thought it would
be a surprise. the waitperson wished my lady happy birthday before it came out.
just a suggestion to her for the future.

Atmosphere in the bar is high and energetic, but in the dining room it is quiet and allows for easy conversation.
Food is very good, with an extensive wine list containing many Michigan wines.

Mom's Day Dinner
We took three generations to celebrate Mother's Day and had a wonderful meal. The service was friendly, very attentive and fun while still being very polite and professional. The food was delicious and everyone enjoyed something different - - salmon, walleye, filet mignon, chicken, short ribs, scallops, etc. The grandparents and parents loved it, as well as the kids (teenagers).

Delicous as always!
Love this place for special occasions. I have to be frugal most of the time, being a single mom with two kids, but I make an exception for this place since the food is consistently well-prepared and the service is always pleasant and attentive. Mother's day brunch with my kids was just lovely. I usually come for the sea bass, which I have enjoyed probably 6 times here. Always perfect. Keep up the good work!

My husband and I went to this restaurant for the first time to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. It is tradition on our anniversary to order lobster, which we enjoy very much. So, I did order the lobster tail. When dinner arrived at our table, I received two SMALL lobster tails, equivalent to the size of shrimp. When I cut into the lobster, it was very hard to cut (with a knife) and very chewy! I was very disappointed. I must say that our waitress did offer to bring a new plate but I declined.
That being said, everything else that we ordered was delicious and our waitress was great -- very attentive.
I would go back but definitely not for the lobster tail!

Great food and great service
My husband and I really like it here. It was lively without being too crazy. I had the special and my husband had a regular menu item. Both were very good. The service was outstanding, attentive without feeling rushed.

Great place to eat seafood
The food was warm, delicious, and served promptly. The waitress was knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. Also, the desserts were outstanding-in particular, the strawberry chocolate bomb.

Our server Leon was very knowledgable about the wine and menu. Lobster bisque and clam chowder were excellent. Whitefish was beautifully presented, however, the sauce needed more flavor.

We have always dined here for special occasions. Never fails. Would highly recommend.

Kid-friendly and romantic?
Northern Lakes Seafood Restaurant is pleasantly quiet with a relaxed atmosphere. The layout allows for privacy because it includes different sections on different levels, and when full, allows diners to hear each other around the table!
The wine list is quite fine, and the food excellently prepared!

A memorable dinning experience
Service & ambiance very good. We have this restaurant as one of our favorites.
Appetizer ,seafood & beef entrees were all very good. Dessert was below par.

Great Food, Great Service
The food was great I liked everything i ordered which included the goat cheese fondue, Chilean Sea Bass, and Lobster Bisque. The Sea Bass melts in your mouth. The service was outstanding which was to be expected for a fine dining place such as this. I would strongly recommend this place.

The plates were creative and the food was delicious. Our beef was cooked perfectly and the service was friendly but professional. We sat by the front window and watched the cruisers on Woodward.

the staff, and our server were all very professional and very nice. the restaurant was immaculate, and the food was very good. the lobster bisque was 'the bomb', and the scallop entrees, which both my wife and i had, were outstanding...perfectly cooked and delicious.

Had a very good experience dining for the first time at Northern Lakes Seafood Company! Service was outstanding! Price for the entrees was what I would consider a little on the high side. The food overall was good, however the Sea Bass entree (Blackened) I selected was not very spicy or "blackened" enough. I was also expecting a swordfish selection to be on the menu, but it may be out of season at this time? Would definitely give this restaurant a second try in the future.

A great place to go!
Even though Northern Lakes will be moving soon, they are worth the drive!

Great lunch as always. Love the Cesar salad with chicken. You can never go wrong with any of their fresh fish specialties.

After a very long hiatus,
After a very long hiatus, we returned and were happy with the experience. Although the menu was much costlier than we remembered, the fish was well prepared and the service was very good. The tuna appetizer was delicious but $20.00? Really? Considering the portion sizes, everything was overpriced including the cocktails, which were skimpy.

It was a great place for a romantic dinner. It was our annivesary and every one made us feel special.

Not closed yet
It was very quiet as most people think they have already closed & moved to their new location. I had a lovely lunch & also took
home a very yummy bowl of clam chowder for a later meal. My server said the new closing date is toward the end November now.

The food was excellent. They were able to make me a special dish, since I am a vegetarian. Chef Frank is amazing. My husband had the scallops and they just melted in his mouth.

The fish was excellent. We
The fish was excellent. We had walleye and perch, both lightly sauteed and they were each prepared perfectly. I ordered the au gratin potatoes and they were served cold - that cost them the fifth star for the food. Also, the restaurant changed their bread and the new bread was tasteless and not very fresh.
