It was delicious! I was hesitant at ordering the carrot bisque, but was so glad I did. Ordered the Trawler and it was fabulous. We will definitely be back. Owner and wait staff very attentive.
The Manitou is a favorite of ours, and has been a recurring monthly visit for several years. We go early (for the early bird dinners) and that menu offers plenty of choices - ribs, fish, burgers are all very good. Good bartender here. Very good service. Worth the drive to this little gem!
After reading review of area restaurants picked The Manitou for dinner. Was seated without a reservation. Service was friendly and timely. Had the best spinach salad that I have ever had, full portion, and full of yummy ingredients, wonderful homemade dressing. Nice fresh warm bread also. Ended up taking half home for later. Boxed it with additional dressing and a... 更多
I have eaten here a number of time and have always had a good experience. From being greeted promptly to having a table ready when we arrive, the experience at The Manitou is always enjoyable. Our waitress was very knowledgeable in regard to the menu offerings and even was able to suggest alternate food preparations for one in our party... 更多
They have a varied menu with numerous choices. There`s something for everybody. They have a decent small wine selection with many other choices out side of wine. Service is with a smile and our waitress was well informed with details about all dishes discussed. Love the rustic atmosphere. Reservations best to do.
We've driven past the Manitou many times when visiting Sleeping Bear Dunes, but never have stopped. We decided to make the hour drive and celebrate a birthday dinner with friends. Unlike many popular lake shore restaurants, we were able to make a reservation. We arrived a 1/2 hour early and were seated 10 minutes late. The place was very busy... 更多
My children gained a better understanding of what goes into sailing a ship during g our trip abound Manitou. The crew was friendly and the scenery pretty. This is not a sightseeing cruise, but a unique way to learn about sailing and enjoy an afternoon on the water.
Our favorite place to dine out when we come to Crystal Lake. Always enjoy the white fish dinner but when walleye is available that's the best. Recently tried the crispy duck which was outstanding. Still trying to identify the ingredients in the tasty house cherry like salad dressing. The serving team is outstanding lead by the lovely Alex. Always friendly... 更多
Lots of hype about this restaurant. Located in northern Michigan on a beautiful stretch of road near Crystal Lake. Unfortunately the food was very typical the bar food with little imagination. Fried perch and overly done walleye where the entrées. The service was good. The wine list was small. Seemed a bit pricey for the fair. Wouldn't go there again.
The summer waitstaff tend toward college students, but no matter who's waited on us over many years of coming here, the people are friendly , attentive, and accomodating. I usually eat the perch or whitefish, broiled, and they have always been done perfectly. The wine list is more than adequate, and the menu works for kids as well as adults,... 更多
