    Amazing food, wonderful setting. It was nice to get back to Walloon Lake Inn. People all dressed nice for and evening out, and the staff all dressed in classic and elegant black. The service was great. The food took a while but the staff kept us updated and we were in no rush.

    This restaurant is a reflection of the lake in its most recent reincarnation: flashy, but with no soul. The food looks very exotic (just like all the 6 bedroom mansions) but the there is no taste. Like the lake itself. And most of the people on it.

    Always a special experience at Walloon. Our excellent server Courtney is back again for her second year and she is the best in the industry. Menu is well thought out yet somewhat limited but there’s truly something for everyone. Fish, chicken, beef filet, rack of lamb and a vegetarian entree are the predominant choices. Excellent salad and appetizers make it hard to choose which one to have. The wedge salad is one of the best and creative we’ve seen. Any choice will please. Melissa and her highly trained staff know how to run a fine dining establishment. Really like none other in northern Michigan. It’s elegant casual fine dining with a view and topped off with a fine piano player most evenings. We will continue to eat dinner and Sunday brunch here as we have for many years. Thank you for always making our meal something to remember.

    The food, as always, was outstanding and the staff were cordial and efficient. We did,however, experience a pretty long wait for our food and between courses. The noise level because of the way too loud piano player made conversation nearly impossible.

    The most ideal dining experience I've had in northern Michigan. The service was outstanding from start to finish. Each course was delicious; I ordered the pear salad and rack of lamb which paired perfectly. My friends were elated with their choices as well. Our server was gracious, calm, and friendly and the atmosphere outdoors was beautiful on a summer evening. Can't recommend it highly enough.

    Wish we had asked for a corner table. Very large (loud) group seated in the center of the restaurant made table conversation difficult. Food was excellent and good to see our favorite red blend on the menu. Enjoyed many new items on the menu.

    We went early, 5:00 pm and learned they have an early bird special! 3 course dinner for one price, saved us $25 each! Beat the crowd, and had a great window table. Best early bird dinner in N Mich!
