Stopped here while vacationing on Lake Leelanau, about a 45 minute drive from Cedar. Great old building, all rough cut timber inside, not at all what you'd expect from the look of the exterior.

We had the Crab Tater Tots as an appetizer, and at $9, were well worth it, 5 in a serving, a couple more would have been appreciated, but the taste and quality were top notch.

Menu hasfood from alot of local suppliers. There's a big push in Michigan right now to buy local, and this place does it. There's something on the menu for everybody, from woodfire pizzas to rich pasta dishes, and everything in between.

Beer selection was decent, 5 Jolly Pumpkin taps and 5 North Peak Taps, nothing rare, but a solid selection.

This was well worth the drive, and the money was well spent.

I use to work here and this is where I developed my pallet for sour beers and I have my very first Oro De Calabaza.

Lovely spot just north of Traverse City. We visited late afternoon, and we were lucky, because the wait was 2 hours when we left. Great food, excellent beers, and friendly attentive service make this a superb place to visit.

Nice vibe/atmosphere, beautiful location (although you don't get the best view from inside). Service was solid. The JP beer was of course interesting and had a few really nice beers on tap but their "guest" beers (i.e. North Peak) were pretty unexciting. Nice bottle selection with a few bottles I believe are brewery only. Food was excellent. A great place to stop while you're checking out the beautiful Old Mission Peninsula.

Great sours, and about 8 other beers on tap. $1 for a 5 oz taster of any beer on tap. They only had 4 jolly pumpkin sours on tap, but I liked all of them. esp otono

A bit out of the way, but it would be a beautiful spot during the daylight hours!

Good knowledgeable and friendly staff.
