    Nomad was amazing. We didn’t have an expectation level going in, but if we did, it would’ve been exceeded. We were seated immediately on arriving for our reservation. Water was served as soon as we were seated. Our server took our drink orders right after and answered our questions. He said it was encouraged to share plates which was a great suggestion as several were quite large even as “small plates”. We shared the truffle fries, smashed potatoes, burrata,miso black cod, and the wagyu/foie gras burger (it’s listed at $300 on the menu including a bottle of wine but they were happy to allow us to order it for $48 without the wine). Everything was excellent. Even our teenage son couldn’t find anything to complain about so I’d say it was 5 stars. Don’t miss the cheesecake tacos for dessert. We will be back.

    Great restaurant - food, drinks, service and location are wonderful! The only downside is not much for sound dampening, so it is very loud with voices of bigger groups carrying throughout and the music was even louder so it was difficult for conversation. Hoping they can make some tweaks to this. Beyond that, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit and we will definitely be back!

    Food was tasty. Server said that everything was meant for sharing, yet, there were two of us and they brought 3 of what we ordered. Tuna tacos were delicious, but difficult to split the 3rd one into two. We also had the truffle fries and they had too much cheese for our liking and weren't able to finish them.

    Our group ordered the Ahi tuna tacos, Bao Buns, Thai chicken salad, Brussels sprouts, onion rings, almond cherry tart, and key lime pie. Food was excellent. Server forgot a drink refill, but was otherwise good. We sat outside on the patio overlooking the marina. Pleasant experience. Will definitely be back!

    This is a new restaurant with lots of promise. Beware of entree timing. Their theory is that you mainly share so if you order two entrees at the same time they may not come out anywhere near the same time. Ours were 20 minutes apart. They also do not have any umbrellas outside so beware.

    Although I seldom write reviews - In this case, I hope it helps a new restaurant that is worth your time. Menu very interesting and food was excellent. Service almost a bit too prompt. Professional. I suspect Nomad will be busy this summer.

    This space has turned over many times. We decided to try it again this time as Nomad and weren’t disappointed. Great menu with diverse offerings and the service is excellent. We were here multiple times and Eric and Mike behind the bar are outstanding. Great to see this location reborn and thriving.

    Our experience at NOMAD was wonderful! The food came out very quickly and everything was delicious. My husband and I ordered the ahi tacos, bao buns, chicken wings, spicy sausage pasta, and chocolate mousse dessert. We ordered too much food but wanted to Try everything on the menu! The pasta was the only thing we felt iffy about but I could have eaten a dozen of the ahi tacos and bao buns, they were amazing! This restaurant is a welcome change of pace for northern Michigan, it definitely feels like a “big city” menu!

    This was a disaster from beginning to end! Out of three cocktails ordered two were incorrect. We ordered an appetizer that showed up after all other dishes were eaten and they were way overcooked. The lobster bisque was delicious but not hot enough. The truffle fries, bao buns and ahi tacos were good with the bao buns being the standout dish. The restaurant says their concept is small plates to share but we clearly ordered separately and gave instructions as to when we wanted each item. Then after a mixup with the bill I didn’t get my credit card back! When I went back to retrieve it they said I left it on the table! It didn’t happen that way!

    The small plates are good…lots of variety. The larger meals were just okay. The Thai chicken dish was on the tough side. Overall it’s a good restaurant, but the value just isn’t there.

    We had a wonderful time at Nomad tonight. This new restaurant is a great addition to the dining scene in Petoskey. We were greeted warmly and welcomed as we entered. The restaurant is beautifully laid out with a very sleek look and cool vibe—very open and airy. The staff is all very friendly, professional and seem genuinely happy to be there and enjoying themselves. Our server, Luke, was at our table very quickly to ask for drink orders. (He was a terrific server and asked us how we thought he did at the end of the meal and told us it was his first day and we were his first table!!). We ordered a variety of appetizers, small plates and entrees. Everything was very good. The jalapeño biscuits were unbelievable, the spicy rigatoni with veal sausage was outstanding (and I’m a picky Italian), the truffle fries were excellent, Bailey buns were amazing and the homemade gelato was fabulous! You get the picture—you have to give this restaurant a try!! We will definitely be back and highly recommend this as a fun, delicious experience!

    Great addition to the Bay Harbor Village! Well executed, modern, inventive dishes that demonstrate real culinary skill. We loved the brussel sprouts, onion rings, and tuna tacos. Better get over here before the summer crowds discover what a winner this place is.

    First time at Nomad as it just opened the week prior to our visit. We were greeted with open arms upon our arrival and welcomed by many staff members. The menu is limited and very interesting. Something for everyone’s taste here. Small plates are the more prevalent menu items with a few large plates to choose from. We shared the antioxidant salad, ahi tuna tacos and spicy sausage pasta. All ware incredible. We took note of some of the other menu items bring served around us and they all looked fantastic. We ended out evening with house made gelato trio and key lime pie. All made in house by the way. On our way out we were thanked by many employees and asked to return again soon. A first class new restaurant in Bay Harbor from the owners of the excellent Maple and Batter down the street. These guys do it right! We will be back!
