    We enjoyed our dinner but the food isn't always what you might expect from the description on the menu. More accurate descriptions would be better .. The pork loin that my husband had looked more like a porkchop and it was necessary to trim it of a lot of fat.

    Ordered our meal and didn’t get told till it was in front of us that there was a main ingredient missing. Said something to the manager and she said she would take care of it but never saw her or our waiter again. Almost felt like that was their plan. On top of that the server was rude throughout dinner.

    Relaxing and inviting for the Winter season. Warm lighting and tables were spaced out so we could have some privacy. The Chicken Paprikash and Fish and Chips were unbelievable. The blush sauce served with the fish is a new favorite. I will now need that sauce anytime I want to dip something.

    Excellent service, high food quality and good drinks. The appetizer was potato dumplings, great flavor and quantity for three of us to taste. The salmon with potatoes was covered in a light honey sauce providing a unique flavor and cooked to perfection. The cosmopolitan drinks were also on target. One of our favorite places to eat in the Holland area.

    My meal was just way too salty. Probably should have sent it back. Appetizer was good. When I spend that much money I guess I expect to be completely happy with my food. Only visit here once a year and for a special occasion and was a bit disappointed.

    AC was blowing cold air across dining room. We had to put our jackets on it was that cold! They were also out of a lot of menu options including anything with Tuna. Most surprisingly was they didn’t have any draft beer since they were also out of CO2. I understand that things happen unexpectedly but this was not a pleasant dining experience last night. :(

    Food is good. Our first table was in the outdoor enclosed area which was extremely noisy - so much so that we could not carry on a conversation at our table. We asked if we could be moved to the dining room area. The waitstaff and manager were very accommodating and gave us a table where it was much quieter and we were able to have a pleasant conversation with our meal.

    We dined on October 4 for dinner - my wife & I with two good friends. While 3 of the 4 of us liked our dishes, my wife’s vegetable and rice bowl made her very sick. She was up all night unwell. You should either stop selling that dish or significantly improve it’s quality.

    Chicken was a little too salty and too smothered in gravy. Blackened salmon was perfect. Seafood chowder was excellent. Waiter started out very cool but warmed up as evening progressed. A little pricey.

    Our server was Kelsey. She was knowledgeable, attentive and did a great job for us. the perch were excellent. The crab cakes just OK. It was not very busy so the noise level, usually an issue here, was not a problem. The prices are HIGH. Two people $150. Including a $25 tip.

    My husband and I wanted to go somewhere special for our 52nd wedding anniversary and we read about the Sandy Point Beach House. It sounded perfect for us so we drove out into the beautiful countryside to get there. We loved our time there! The food was delicious. Our server was helpful and kind. We are still talking about our experience there. And everyone knows that means a lot! We cannot wait to come back to taste again all the delicious food we loved! More than 5 stars! And thank you for making our evening special!

    First the menu was very diverse, unusual in today’s restaurant environment. Although we have dined here many times in the past ten years, this by far exceeded all expectations. The food was excellent! Very well seasoned, no need for any salt or pepper. Our server, Stephanie was excellent. She was attentive, but not overbearing. She checked with us periodically, at reasonable intervals. The only downside was the noise level due to the band. While the band was excellent, they could reduce their volume by several decibels.

    There were seven of us dining and we had a great experience. Two had halibut and this dish is one you don’t want to miss as it’s delicious. Two had perch and both said it was excellent. Three had the crab cakes. The crab cakes are okay just not the best any of us ever had. The chef’s special Pomegranate salad was delicious and the Caesar salad didn’t disappoint either! We enjoyed some cocktails and suggest enjoying Momo’s Mojito, Manhattan, and the pear cucumber martini. We will definitely be back. This was our third visit this summer and we feel that our past two visits have been by far the best.

    Overall…arrived at 5:30 for a 6:30 reservation expected to spend time at the bar. She was awesome..great service. My 6:30 reservation service from Joe M was sarcastic and demeaning. We both ordered the Buddha bowl with Salmon. My Salmon was raw and took another 30 minutes to arrive. So a 6:30 reservation and my meal arrived at 8:00. I will never go back based off this experience. They just didn’t care. Joe stated he did everything he could do and to go online a write a review.
