Excellent food always. Staff is pleasant and knowledgeable of menu items and their ingredients. Reservations definitely recommended. We prefer the bar side for seating just for ambiance but the food is outstanding no matter where you sit.

Historic and very comfortable atmosphere. Solid always over many years. Ribeye, Planked whitefish, and legendary Pork Chops are outstanding. Recommend 4-6 PM "Happy Hour" for reduced prices.

Highly recommend this place. Food is always outstanding.
Surprised that hostess, servers, & diners walking to tables did not wear masks.
Price is higher than many Metro Detroit restaurants with food and ambiance of same quality.
They have the best happy hour, food and wait staff in all of Gaylord
Never disappointed with the service or the quality of the meal.
Some of the best fish I have eaten anywhere. The chicken piccata was amazing.
Great food, farm to table, seasonable as available. Menu favorites that remain stable. Great cocktails, extensive wine list. Friendly staff and service.
Our server was very attentive pacing the meal to our needs. Appetizers of parmesean brussel sprouts and buffalo sliders were exceptional. Appreciated the chef's suggestions on menu for wine pairing with entrees. Overall a very pleasant dining experience.
Awesome food and service would definitely go back 😀

Best place in Gaylord to eat!! Food is always delectable and affordable:)
Thank you for the feedback and rating. It means the world to see that you appreciate what we do.
We were at BNI for appetizers and drinks only this afternoon. The drinks were very good our appetizers this time we’re not the best. My steamed oysters were cold and my wife’s crab dip was very salty. Normally BNI is above average this was just an off day for them I feel. I hope the next time we go back it will be back up to the standards we have come accustomed to.
Thank you for the feedback, I'm glad to see that you usually love what we do. We look forward to having another opportunity to show you a 5 star experience soon.
