Chefs blend their talent with your tastes for a custom catering experience sure to impress. It’s not meeting food. Or event food. Or banquet food. It’s great food. Fully engaged chefs craft a menu just for you.
Our first visit here was for date night in the early evening. We enjoyed ourselves and are looking forward to going back at some point. Our food was good although nothing to RAVE about. Prime Rib was okay - you should be able to cut it with a fork but I could have used a steak knife and it was ordered medium rare. The meatloaf was good if you took a bite with all the accoutrements. But the meatloaf on it's own was just okay.
We were most impressed with the service and atmosphere and will visit again when the weather warms up so we can dine outside for a different experience. Definitely worth the drive and we will give other menu items a try.
Enjoyed a fun, quiet dinner with our friends. Good was great. Service first rate. Prices reasonable.
Great ambiance, service, and food! My visiting friends lived it.
Muscic started too early, was too loud. Had a difficult time carrying on a conversation with friends. Would not pick this restaurant if you want a relaxing evening to visit with friends.
Celebrated our wedding anniversary here and it was absolutely a perfect!
Very Nice restaurant with an exceptional view of Gunn Lake. food was excellent. Dessert menu was very limited.
The greeting staff was more than courteous upon our entry, and presenting us with a perfect table. Our waitress, Erin, started things off just right with a pleasant hello, and asking for our preferences. Our service was perfectly slow and easy, and very relaxing. The prime rib was above expectations, taste wise, and the generous portion. The accompanying potatoes and asparagus were perfect as well. Cathe was very pleased with the wine and chocolate-ed strawberries, and notation.
Thank-You for the perfect birthday dinner !!!
Flavor of food was amazing!! Definitely good portions also!!
We brought out of town guests for a seashore dining experience- The food was excellent: great value !
Our dinner date for our anniversary was everything we expected. The beautiful view from the deck overlooking Gun Lake was its own ambient quiet on a sunny September evening. We savored our drinks while we waited - not long - for our dinner. Our server, Cody, was attentive and courteous. He recommended the grilled snapper. He was right. It was delicious! We thoroughly enjoyed our evening!
As always, your venue was fantastic with exemplary food & cocktails and friendly wait staff. We enjoy your whole experience very much and recommend it to friends often. Thx much to Mike & Patty for the amazing social experience you have created for us all to enjoy! Brian & Cristy
Best venue in the area. Can’t beat eating on the terrace overlooking Gun Lake on a warm night. Food was also excellent tried the clam chowder which was exceptional.
Tiago was a great server!
The food and drinks were great
Party of 6 and the weather was "if-y". We started on the deck until the rain came and they were very accommodating to move us inside. Excellent waitress and the food was outstanding. 6 different things ordered and each of us kept raving about how good it was!
We enjoyed everything about the Terrace Grill. The food was beautifully presented, perfectly prepared and tasty. The view was lovely and the service was top notch. A gem tucked into middle Michigan.
We had a 7pm reservation and were seated around 8:15pm. When we attempted to order drinks they were out of almost every item the first 3 people tried to order. We placed our food order, it was at least an hour before our food came. When the food did arrive, it was marginal at best and that’s disappointing as it was not cheap. The steak was over cooked, the fish was over cooked on the ends and under cooked in the middle. When we told the manager he said he was sorry, but then quickly added “you know, it is our busy season and it just happens sometimes”! Our server was great, but her great service did not over compensate for marginal food, too long of wait times, and a manager that was no help. We will not be back and we were a table of 10 foodies who often pay top dollar for exceptional food and drinks.
Service was fast and awesome. Food and drinks were even better! Mikes perfect margarita is the best margarita I’ve had by far! Great views even from inside! Highly recommended.
Wonderful as always! If you have not been here it's definitely worth a visit and if you're a regular you need to have the brisket!
Beautiful view, great food, wonderful staff... what else could you ask for?
Great location, great food and very friendly staff!
It was my wife birthday
Excellent overall and looking forward to a return visit!
Menu could be more varied. Caprese salad had thin tomatoes and too much oil. Steak was very good. Service was a bit slow. Waitress was friendly however.
Everything was perfect. The chicken I got was a little over cooked but all together great place. Will definitely return. Our waitress was great
Wonderful evening on the terrace overlooking the lake. Great food too!
It was incredibly convenient and a beautiful place for a birthday celebration.
The food was amazing ....of course sitting on the patio looking at gorgeous Gun Lake is always a treat .....there were two wedding receptions going while we were dining ...never were disturbed once ....actually it is so much fun having the entertainment and action.
The stay was very romantic, the food and atmosphere top notch! The only thing we missed, was the fireplace that did not work. Highly recommend for a close getaway!
We were there during a GunLive performance so it was louder than normal. The setting on Gun Lake is very beautiful
Great Restaurant on Gun Lake. Beautiful patio view. Nicely appointed decor inside. Food was good and our server was very attentive and very personable.
My favorite spot!
Wasn’t thrilled that the prices sky rocketed. Ie: chicken sandwich jumped to $15. Need to offer a $10 option
Drinks are a bit pricey too.
Fish was over cooked.
Nice ambiance pricey bill for the food, that wasn’t as awesome as in previous years. Fyi: We have been coming here for over 26 years.
Terrible service. Lazy staff. We bussed our own table - actually cleared our dirty plates and glasses while the wait staff and busboys stood and watched. Manager's excuse was they were too busy, but the restaurant was less than half full.
Hostess was also lazy. We were there to meet another group of people. Rather than taking us to their table, the hostess pointed at the dining room and said "They're in there somewhere."
We ate out on the terrace. it was very hot and the bugs were terrible. a fan would have been nice to possibly keep the bugs away and to keep it cooler.
I would recommend eating inside. however the view was fabulous
I had the chicken sandwich. I asked for the bacon well done, it was fatty and rubbery. The chicken piece was very small, dry and tough. The bun was soggy. I never complain, but this was really poor. They comped my meal, which I appreciated.
The upbeat and enthusiastic servers were wonderful. They seemed to go out of their way to make sure my gluten-free options were true and even made an on the spot substitution. On both occasions during out stay the service was great, the food imaginative and tasty and the wine notable.
Great service and food
Some of the food was excellent - Crab cakes and Mac & cheese. But the brisket was flavorless and overall the food was over priced. I’ll go again for the crab cakes and Mac & cheese but that’s all.
Stayed and dined here for our 36th wedding anniversary. Fantastic food, beautifully presented and great wine list. Very fast service and superb view of Gun Lake. They even brought chocolate covered strawberries to our table on a Happy Anniversary plate following our meal. Could not have had a better experience. So caught up in the moment I forgot to take pics!
Great food, atmosphere and service! Salmon was the best I've tasted in a very long time. Others ordered Walleye. Delicious!
