    It was freezing in the outdoor space. Only two heaters for the whole room. Freezing cold air coming under the window. We all left our winter coats on and tried to get comfortable. 20 degrees outside with wind, not fun and not how we want to spend money on a meh dinner. Sushi is good—if you like it, I don’t—wings good but how hard can that be? Don’t waste time on the spring rolls, deli meat inside. We froze, ate and got the heck out as every large table with kids is seated in the same area. For the prices they charge for bar food we felt ripped off.

    We had a table for 7 so had to sit in the side room. It's noisy in there because of the game machines. But it was a Saturday night and it was crowded and noisy. Food is good, large portions. Will go back, just not with a large group.

    We had a reservation at 7:45pm. We got seated around 7:55pm (the restaurant was very busy), but then no one came to our table to greet us / provide water / take order / anything until 8:20pm, when we’d just decided to leave and go elsewhere because it was obviously going to take too long to eat. Very frustrating.

    We were delighted they were open Christmas Day! The staff was warm, welcoming and kept a festive air for guests. We had an older adult with us who was treated with extra courtesy as the doors were held open by staff and our waiter interacted with her patiently and respectfully. The street tacos were great and the beef and cheddar sandwiches and warm potato chips were tasty. I intend to go back and try some of the intriguing drinks on the menu.

    Pork tacos were great as was the French dip and gyro sandwiches. Server was a bit slow, but it was quite busy so probably not her fault. Vibrant bar scene. Fun place.

    We went to Pierson's after the Christmas Tree lighting in Harbor Springs, and of course it was jammed. It took a while to get waited on, but we didn't really care. We were sitting out in the patio having great conversations. It seemed like everyone we knew in the area was eating there that night. It was warm and we could bring our puppy with us (on the patio). Eventually we got waited on and the food and drink was great. We really enjoyed ourselves.

    Seated, waited 7-8” for water, at least 15” for server. She was standing in back talking with other employees. Food warm, bun cold. By the time server checked back , too late for anything we needed. Thought food would be more exciting but mediocre, walleye great but risotto, definitely no. Ate it because I was hungry not because it tasted good. Server very attentive with her next table. Wont return.

    Food was good but the noise level was unbearable. They moved our table from the main dining area (with pinball machines and many 10-year olds) to the bar area,but it was still noisy and we were seated at a high table with chairs without backs. Patio area was full, but probably a better option

    Coming from Petoskey and first time dining in Harbor Springs. Plenty of seating- well rounded menu and waitstaff visiting just enough and got us to our movie in time. Our table ordered burgers to sushi and everyone had a great experience. Great little walking town and wasn’t overly busy. Worth the trip.
