Wonderful anniversary dinner here at this inn’s restaurant; staff were kind, generous, and accommodating and our meals and drinks were spectacular. Would recommend!
Loved the halibut, my husband had the sea bass, both were delicious.
Jen was phenomenal!
We had a nice breakfast on a busy Sunday. It was a beautiful day looking out over the St. Joseph river.
We absolutely love Planks! The food is amazing...great tasting and beautiful, too. Paul and Anthony are so attentive to everyone dining there. We go there in every season...being out at the Tiki Bar is so nice....It's our top choice for dining in this area!
Great place to have dinner when visiting Benton Harbor!
Excellent quality and value. Not fond of the main dining room but the pub area is nice - especially during the winter months with the nice fireplace.
The food and drinks were excellent and the atmosphere was great. We really enjoyed are tome there. Will defiantly stop again when we're in town.
Warm and inviting dining environment with friendly and timely servers. The menu is outstanding while the specials were truly special. The managers Anthony and Paul make a point of visiting each table to ensure your dining experience is exceptional.
Unlike anything in the area! Fresh, innovative and amazing flavors! They have it all!
Good food but definitely overpriced.
The have a fantastic brunch! Excellent bloody Mary's and chicken and biscuits!
The menu items had changed, but the chicken pesto pizza was delicious. We had a great time. The serve was very good.
We stumbled upon this place on our way back to Michigan from Indiana on New Years and couldn't wait to come back on our way back to visit family in Indiana for Thanksgiving. The food is great, the hotel is wonderful and the pool and hot tub are perfect! We especially love the food! Our kids order the wood fired pizza instead of kids pizza and it's dynamite. The tuna wonton tacos are a favorite. Never disappoints. It's a highlight of our family trips each year!
Delicious food. I had a unique salad called quinoa and kale salad (which honestly sounded boring albeit nutritious) which was the most delicious salad I’ve ever had. Also the fries are outstanding! It was a birthday of my friend and he was sung to as well as brought a piece of this outstanding cheesecake. This was not a cheesy birthday celebration but one of class. There was a sparkler and the cheesecake was served on a beautiful wooden plank in the shape of Michigan.
We decided to try Plank’s because of good reviews and the reviews were accurate. Great menu and excellent food. Sunday buffet is also available with an omelette station and other fresh choices.
Good food, good seating arrangements, and great service.
Great food and service. I love the menu and variety of choices. One of our favorite restaurants in teh area. Highly recommended.
Excellent food and friendly service. The Lobster Mac and Cheese was amazing. The martinis are delightful. While the restaurant seems exposed to the hotel lobby, once inside you don't notice. The atmosphere is cozy and very pleasant.
We went to The Plank for a bachelorette dinner. The food was good, the service was better. Everyone enjoyed the evening but the food was a bit pricey. Our table had no views except for the TV.
One of the best brunch meals I have ever had. All four of us were very satisfied.
Great view of the lake. The beet salad was very small and the avocado toast came
With bacon which it did not List in the menu. Overall just okay food.
The food was good, great desserts. Service was good. Nice location, but nothing moved the needle toward exceptional.
Plank's Tavern was absolutely lovely! We were there for Sunday brunch - we ordered off the menu vs taking part in the brunch options. We found the menu to be fantastic and in fact all of us commented that it might have been one of the best breakfasts any of us had ever had! They have outdoor seating which was also very nice. I highly recommend Plank's and will return for dinner soon.
Great housemade black bean burger!
We came to Planks Tavern to celebrate my cousin's 18th birthday and unbeknownst to him Paul came out with a cheesecake singing happy birthday. I can't say enough about how amazing the people are, the food and the atmosphere!
First time there. The food was great, service great. Highly recommend for comfortable dinning.
We booked a room in the hotel last-minute due to a change in weekend plans, and decided to eat here, as it was convienient and the menu had some gluten-free options. The tavern wasn't busy, and a table outside would have been nicer, but none were available. However, the atmosphere was nice, the service very good, the food was excellent.
Very nice patio seating area and food was very good
Waitress didnt remove our salad bread or dinner dishes even after she gave us take home boxes. I put the playes on anothet table
Very good food and Very large flat bread.
We were quite pleasantly surprised at our experience at Plank's. The menu was quite interesting and the food was very good. We sat outside, so the noise level was quite tolerable, plus it was a very pleasant viewl
Food was good. Service was ok, biggest problem was length of time to get our food. Seems like it took forever. Apps came out quick but dinner was super slow. We drank a lot passing the time but still, could have been much faster.
We had and outstanding meal and dining experience. We enjoy sitting outside having a nice relaxed evening and enjoyed the cocktails-great Citrusy Sangria, the mussels appetizer, a wonderful flatbread, and great 1/2 rib rack that was tasty and fell off the bone. The flavors of everything were outstanding. The service (Jamie)-great and Anthony (one of the managers) provided wonderful customer service and interaction with all the restaurant guests.
We went to Sunday brunch and the chef that made my omelette was friendly and professional. Food was good and enjoyed eating on the porch. A little disappointed on our server. We had to ask for our water to be filled by another server but I would definitely come back.
Overall the food was great. My husband & I were celebrating our anniversary. Sunday brunch was delicious and plentiful. Worth the value, however the wait staff were constantly at the table. Like every 3-4 minutes, we couldn't enjoy breakfast or have a conversation there was constantly someone there... Super annoying. The view was beautiful on the patio. It was quiet and relaxing. Overall I would recommend
As a local, I had been to Planks a few times in the past and had terrible experiences....vowing never to go back but I'm glad that I have been back. The food quality and service have gone from down right aweful to quite good. The managers are attentive and the wait staff are professional and know the menu well. They have a fantastic beer selection comprised of local/regional craft brews including several IPAs.
The outdoor dining overlooking the river is great and the addition of live music a few nights per week is awesome.
I'm a local boater so I think it would be really cool if they would create tie up space along the wall so as to be able to grab lunch or dinner via boat or even do call ahead ordering so you could dock, grab food and go.
Planks has come a long way in the past year so if you haven't been back ina while, you should give it a try.
We were way early for our reservation, which was not an issue, we were seated outside, service and food were fine, nothing to get excited about.
