Vintage Chophouse l Wine Bar
Beautiful night to eat outdoors. Please bring back the short rib dinner entree
The only thing that would have made this more enjoyable was to be seated outside. It was a lovely evening, and although our table was by the window, it's so noisy inside that outside is preferable. However, we had a great dinner and lovely wine, good service and a nice view.
We picked this restaurant to celebrate our 29th anniversary because the website portrayed the restaurant has an upscale Steakhouse & Wine Bar. Regretfully, it was anything but that. There were lots of kids in swimsuits, adults in swimsuits and wraps, and when combined with staff that appeared very stressed, tired and agitated by the kids, food that was average at best, this restaurant fell short of our expectations when you consider the featured steak was a $120 Kobe beef steak.
Food was very tasty. Was a bit disappointed in our server we had just received our salad and within minutes our main course came. Was feeling a bit rushed
Waiter was awesome
We always enjoy Vintage. The views of Lake Michigan are fantastic and the service is great. The menu is improved from past years.
One criticism though ... we made outdoor reservations on 8/6. The manager was debating whether to open up outside due to 40% chance of rain by 8:00 but we said we would be there by 6:00 so they took our reservation for 6. When we got there, they told us the patio was closed - too windy. This was clearly not the case - we have been there many times with it much windier. We were left with no plans / options. Not happy since we have been very loyal customers.
For creative cuisine on the shores of Little Traverse Bay, this place can't be beat. The inside seating is clubby and comfortable, and the patio seating lets you experience Lake Michigan by day or by night. Service is outstanding too. A gem of the North!
Miss the old Sagamore’s warm casual comfy bar with more normal American fare. Vintage is too upscale and the menu to pricey for most families and guests that stay at the Inn. We live in Bay Harbor and come to vintage in the summer for the sunset views. Appetizers and cocktails are much better than the menu.
Wintertime french onion soup is fantastic!
Beautiful evening to sit outside and enjoy the view of sunset and Lake Michigan! Excellent food and service and hard to beat the atmosphere for outdoor dining.
Strange for a bar/restaurant no bar snack appetizers. Totally grossed out by our servers dirty finger nails. Food was expensive. It good.
Average food for the price. Walleye not labeled breaded and we order it even though we are gluten free. Would be a nice thing to add to the menu so others know. Outdoor seating was greAt.
Food is a d-. Ordered the “special” which was a Waygu ribeye. What was delivered was more like a sirloin that was about 1/2” thick and tough as nails for $65. They gladly replaced it with a mediocre filet that took another 45 min to deliver. Atmosphere on waterfront is very nice. Better for drinks than food.
Incredible views and service! Our favorite place when we are in town!!!
They accommodated our sons birthday very nicely. Amazing view of the bay too.
This was our 2nd time eating at Vintage Chophouse and it was a huge disappointment this year. We were staying at The Inn at Bay Harbor so it is very convenient and the patio has a lovely view however we left feeling like we had a mediocre meal at a very high price. My husband and daughter split the seafood pasta, it came out in 2 very small bowls of pasta and a side plate with 1 shrimp, 1 scallop and a quarter of a lobster tail. For $45 we were expecting a larger portion of pasta and more than 3 small pieces of seafood, very disappointing. The appetizers we ordered were fairly portioned however the rest of the meal was not worth the $260 we spent.
The other frustration was that our server rushed us for our order because she said there were two other large parties inside that were about to order and she didn't want our order to be "behind" theirs in the kitchen. We ordered as she requested and when I went to use the restroom after the appetizers came I went through the dining room only to see one large table who was completely finished with their dinner. We believe she told us that to help speed up her night as we were her last table of the evening and she didn't want us keeping her there later. In our opinion, extremely unprofessional;.
We will be back at the Inn next summer but we will most likely skip the Vintage Chophouse for dinner, maybe just enjoy a drink on the patio.
Our yearly trips to Bay Harbour andcthe Chop House don’t disappoint us except this time we were celebrating a birthday. I think when you pay what you do for a delishes meal the birthday girl should either get a piece of cake or a drink on the house ... just saying that goes a long way for repeat customers
The scenery is stunning at sunset
Thank you and see you again
Inedible food. Sadly
Wonderful find for a delicious dinner with a gorgeous view of the sunset. Highly recommend this gem!
Great service...beautiful setting for outdoor dining
We were celebrating our 65th anniversary with friends who were celebrating their 66th.
The food, service, view were all great.
Excellent food and service! Love the Vintage Chop House!
Great food. Great staff. Amazing view
Great dining experience. Excellent service. Our favorite place with beautiful views of Lake Michigan.
The service was very good. The food was just okay... I feel for the price the food should be awesome. I ordered the salmon and the fish was really over cooked and dry. My husbands food, according to him was really salty. I feel that the price we paid the food should be better then your “average” restaurant. Other then that the only other complaint is my girls love the outdoor checker/chess game and they were not set up yet. With the weather being nice outside it would of been nice to be able for them to play that.
We go to this restaurant often as it is close to home and we always find something we enjoy.
The cocktails are terrific also. the service is always professional.
Food has gone downhill, just so-so at best, same ole stuff too
Great food! Great staff! Enjoyed it very much!!
Food is excellent! Will be sure to eat here again!
Superb wait staff, great view and deliciously prepared meals. A wonderful dining experience.
What a nice restaurant! We had a lovely meal with our family celebrating my husband’s birthday. The waiter allowed us to set our own pace and we thoroughly enjoyed the good food, good service, light jazz in the background, and of course the fabulous view. It is very expensive but we will be back!
Very nice. Can’t wait to go back. Our food was wonderful and amazing view
Nice place to drop in and have a lovely diner. Good food, good service, and a lovely view.
Excellent food. Excellent service. Not our first time there and we will definitely be back!
Loved it ! Food was tasty
The food was excellent with good sized portions. Everything from the starters to dessert and after dinner drinks were delicious! We weren’t rushed and enjoyed excellent cocktails prior to dining. The service was wonderful! Loved our meal and the view of the bay!!
Service was terrible. David was curt and unavailable. Was not impressed. Cobwebs all over the ceiling as well.
Don’t advertise as a good restaurant and then have televisions on the walls.
Served bread after the main course... not impressed for the price.
Vintage Chop House is an under-appreciated gem in Northern Michigan. Menu offers great comfort food options in the Winter and is always prepared well. Many more options on the menu compared to some other N. Michigan fine dining spots.
We were told we needed to leave at a certain time before we even received our meal
Very bad policy
Great food and service!
Good food, good service. Not a place for a quiet conversation. Definitely would recommend.
