We went out for breakfast on Thursday at the Bluffs. I got the eggs benedict and my wife had the oatmeal The benedict here is best I've had in a long time. My wife loved her oatmeal. Came out hot with a very generous portion of toppings

Had dinner with my wife last night at Arcadia Bluffs. We had nice a table by the fireplace with a view of the lake. Beautiful place to eat. The lighting was nice which really set the tone for the evening. We will definitely be dining here again soon!

When our food was delievered to our table my husbands mashed potato's were barely warm, the butter surrounding and over his Chateaubriand was cool. My meal was acceptable - warm but certainly not hot. The soups were just warm and one of our desserts was a chocolate fondue and the banana's on the plate were significantly browned as if they had sat out quite awhile. The waitress was just OK, the ambiance was great.
This was a disappointing dinner.

Our services was great overall just very disappointed in the quality of the food. Our appetizers were lukewarm at best and our entree's were not impressive. One guest sent the lamb back to the kitchen right after tasting it and ordered something else. It was the same entrée as I ordered and it was shocking to see the difference between our two meals. The meat was under seasoned while my potatoes were overly saucy with so much seasoning while hers was barely seasoned at all (her potatoes where much better than mine). Overall all 6 of us were not impressed and were disappointed in our experience as we all enjoy a fine dining experience. While we will still enjoy the scenery, we will more than likely not be having dinner in the dining room again.

Go for the view, not the vastly over priced bland wreck that we had last night. Our server was the only delight of the night and we drove an hour to get there. It was almost like cafeteria for with a $52 price tag (sirloin) or the $48 " seafood fettuccine" which was so boring we were actually laughing at it. There were 6 of us and it was unanimous what a horrible dinner it was. The only saving moment was the spectacular view over Lake Michigan. It's truly breathtaking. Do NOT eat there. Have a drink, then head anywhere but there.
