The Sunroom offers additional seating with stunning views of Lake Michigan. It is also available as private space that can be sectioned off into two spaces that accommodate up to 45 on each side or opened up to host 90 guests.

    Incredible setting with a panoramic view of the GREATEST Lake.......Michigan. Arrived early for our reservation and were seated immediately at our special request to be on the deck. Service VERY good.....food excellent. Only negative: a table for 4 on the deck is a small table and cannot handle all the plates, drinks, rolls, etc.

    The reason to go to Arcadia Bluffs is the view. Definitely not the quality of food. It is unimaginative and of mediocre quality. The music selection in the dining room was inappropriate, similar to music at a midrange chain restaurant. Service was excellent. I expect high prices at a golf club such as this, but the food does not warrant it.

    Excellent entrees with high quality ingredients and presented beautifully. One major issue. Holiday dinner and would expect bread service with the entrees. The server brought a bread plate and butter spreader but nothing to use it for. Also, at a restaurant of this caliber, take the extra step at a holiday meal and a chocolate or other small sweet treat presented with the bill.

    Lunch menu until 5:00. Should be spelled out when making reservations. Hostess wasn’t helpful in putting us on the outside porch, even though we asked. Not sure why, it wasn’t full whole time we were there which left a bad taste in our mouth in spite of the food and waitress being excellent.

    The ambiance is amazing, especially on the patio. Overall we had a great experience here, however when our server broke the cork while opening an expensive bottle we ordered, it had to be decanted, which was fine, however when we were about to leave and wanted to cork it to take it back with us, the server poured the remainder of our bottle into our glasses to take back to our room on the property. We weren’t able to finish the wine and wanted to save it so much of it went to waste.

    The Dining Room at Arcadia BluffsResponded on July 17, 2021Thank you for providing this feedback, we are sorry to hear that you weren't able to enjoy the rest of your wine. If this would have been brought to our attention that evening, we would have been more than happy to pour the glasses back into the bottle and recork the bottle for you. Thanks again for the feedback, we hope to have the opportunity to serve you again in the future.

    Our dining experience was outstanding. Of course, the food and the glorious dining room were top notch, far beyond what we expected. But Faith, our server, made the evening particularly memorable and delightful. She has the uncanny capacity of combining elegance and warmth in her impeccable service. We will certainly return to Arcadia Bluffs, and when we do, we will ask to be seated in Faith's section.

    The food was delicious. Had a great NY Strip, rare, and wife had salad with salmon. The service is what caused the low rating. An establishment like this isn’t expected to have service provided by one of any staff member. Someone took the drink order, someone else brought them. Someone took our orders, someone brought them out. Someone took our dessert order, another stopped by to take the order we had all ready given someone else. This is not the Arcadia we knew. Then of course we could not get a room to stay the nite. Only open on weekends. All this above was not due to the servers. Albeit they were new, fact is when you are short staffed, it is difficult to disguise it.
