    We had a wonderful time but didn’t realize it closed at 9:00. Our reservation was at 8:00 so we felt a bit rushed at the end. Nonetheless, great food and service!

    We made the trip from Grand Rapids to West Olive because I had read about the steak (ribeye)! It was well worth the trip. And, my wife had the lemon pepper fried chicken. Delicious! My only disappointment was that it wasn't directly on the water. I wanted to enjoy a water view while dining. But, I'd still go back. It was one of the best steaks I've ever eaten.

    We waited 1 1/2 hours for our food because of a large party in the back. The rest of the restaurant was pretty empty. The food was very good and the waiter did continuously apologize for the long wait. It was our first time there.

    It took 15 minutes for someone to take our drink order, and another 15 for drunks to arrive. I had to go up and ask for a dessert menu, as well as for a 2nd round of drinks and for the check, despite it not being busy. About the worst service I can remember at a restaurant.

    Despite the name - it's not on the beach... Drinks were good. Service was nice and friendly. The food was OK, but nothing to write home about - halibut was dry and had some unpleasant strong fried onion smell and pieces of unpleasant smelly onion. Paella was almost good, but overpowered with chorizo (and not super fresh chorizo). Overall, OK, but could be much better.

    We came for breakfast/brunch and were disappointed to find that neither of the griddle items (pancakes or French toast) were available because a new summer menu is coming out? That would be helpful to share with patrons on social media or otherwise so they know if menus are switching, etc. We are understanding of the fact that many restaurants and businesses are short staffed, but if it takes 20 minutes for drink refills, the wait staff are clearly overwhelmed and would benefit from taking fewer tables/patrons so they can fully service the best possible.

    Food and service was excellent. Highly recommend the mussels, walleye and lake perch. Desserts were amazing as well we shared warm carrot cake and bread pudding and also had the flourless chocolate cake. Great wine selection and Paul was an outstanding server. Overall a great evening.

    We went to SPBH for our anniversary. I specified that in my OpenTable reservation. It definitely was not crowded nor loud. We opted to sit outside. I think if more people had been there, it might not have looked so uninteresting - but, it kind of felt like being the first people to show up at a wedding reception. A lot of bland seating underneath a canopy tent and no decor. The bar area outside did look fun - but we were at a distance from it. Anyway, the ambiance was not great but the weather was, so it felt nice to be outside. Our first drinks did not really hit the mark, either - my husband had a Manhattan and I had a blackberry margarita? Or, mojito? The reason I cannot remember which it was is because it tasted like neither. Neither of us ordered craft cocktails for a second drink. Our appetizer - white fish dip - was good. Our salads were good. Specifically, the wedge salad was really good. But, our main course - which was half of the final bill - was disappointing. We both got steaks - the rib eye and the filet. Presentation was lacking and the accompanying sides had very little taste. They were obviously good cuts of meat, and were cooked according to our order, but there did not seem to be a lot of seasoning. I had asked for the same sides that come with the ribeye - "Garlic Herb Mashed Potatoes And Gourmet Mushroom Blend Sautéed In Shallots, Garlic And Herbs And Boursin Cheese." On my plate, I had all of the mushrooms. On my husband's, he had all of the onions. Neither of us had Boursin cheese. We had generous portions of mashed potatoes, but they were dry. There really needed to be something moist on the plate. The key lime pie WAS amazing. So, kudos on that. When we left we were very full, but neither of us felt like we had eaten "a really good meal" - and we paid $250. For $250, you should REALLY feel like you had a good meal. Our server also was not the biggest food enthusiast in the world. We had a hard time tipping her $30 - but, it was 15%.

    Sophie was our waitress, as she was the only waitress, and though she was new she did a wonderful job managing multiple tables. Hopefully Sandy Point can find more quality help, but they're not unique in facing a staffing shortage. Patience should be afforded the staff and expectations should be adjusted accordingly.

    The food and service were fantastic. I think the warm weather caught them by surprise. Their outside area had not been set up yet. Most likely happens around Memorial weekend. Would have liked to sit outside on such a beautiful night and have a cocktail. Will try back after the holiday. Everything else was great.

    Service was extremely slow with little to no check in from our waitress. Food was OK, but not worth the hour we waited for it, and was not warm when we got it. None of this made sense considering there were not very many people in there. Also, gratuity was included, because we were identified as a large group, there was 6 of us.

    Food was just ok, somewhat overpriced, nothing special. It was raining - the 1st table we were seated, it leaked rain water upon the table. Salmon was delicious, ribs just ok, pot pie ok & not hot enough. Mac & cheese was good, but pricy & came with no sides.

    The food was decent but the drinks were not good at all. The bar tender needs more experience. I paid for top shelf liquor and he ruined my martini with way too much Olive juice. Worst dirty martini I have ever had. The boss lady cocktail was the same. Not good at all. Need more options on the wine list to go with you really good Ribeye.
