Local Favorite since 1989

Our desire is to culture a unique dining experience where exciting, eclectic flavors entice your palette and senses. Our Executive Chef Mary Dueweke focuses on fresh local ingredients to create her artfully inspired cuisine. Our menu changes seasonally and we take great pride in creating delicious daily specials including but not limited to a vegetarian dish rightfully deemed the “Green Plate”. We also offer many other vegetarian, vegan & gluten free options in addition to an eclectic menu featuring playful appetizers, salads, hand helds, seafood, steak, local fresh fish, pastas and more.

Our focus on fresh is emphasized by our cocktail program where Lead Mixologist Emily Bryant creates amazing and unique craft cocktails, martinis and other tasty libations. We enjoy showcasing the abundant local fruits & herbs available in our region to develop house made syrups, shrubs & infusions which will enhance your beverage experience. Our cocktails are fun, whimsical and inspired by the freshest ingredients available. In addition, we offer eight rotating taps for local beers and hard ciders and are proud to serve many of the local wines that adorn this region.  

After opening our doors in 1989, we have made beautiful downtown Traverse City our home for 34 years and have shared so much with the amazing people of this area. It is truly our locals who encourage us to strive for excellence and continue to grow in pursuing the love of food and making our guests genuinely happy! We love what we do and are so blessed to be able to create in such an amazing place and community. It is also a joy to share our creations, inspired by the many local products, ingredients, wine, beer, cider and distilleries, with our guests vacationing in and around Traverse City. Thank you for being a part of our lives and enabling us to do what we love, making great food and great memories. Cheers!

We hope that you enjoy your meal and thank you in advance visiting!
