Ben and I were living in Portland, Oregon when we found out that I was pregnant with our first daughter, Josey. He was working at a very popular farm-to-table restaurant and I was pursuing a career as a serial college student while working as a bartender. I never thought that I would be a good fit for city life, but we actually got on really well. Regardless, everything changed when we learned of our pending addition. We knew right away that we wanted to raise our family in Northern Michigan, so we decided to pack up and move home.
We are a local, family-owned operation that takes pride in our roots and our community. We believe in supporting local growers, brewers, vintners, and producers of all kinds as much as possible. Our Chef and owner Ben Kline serves up fresh, quality food in the spirit and tradition of Northern Michigan, while his wife Chelsea works to ensure friendly service and an inviting atmosphere. Come see us down at the south end of Northern Michigan's infamously beautiful Torch Lake to experience the amazing tastes our area has to offer.
