We stopped in at the Chippewa room on our way up into the UP for an early dinner. We were greeted and sat promptly by the hostess, who was very personable and polite, and it was not a long wait until our server John came to the table. Once you sit down, they bring complimentary warm cheese crusted bread rolls to your table, which are quite good. I ordered the trout special with rice pilaf and a salad, and my fiance ordered the lasagna. My salad was odd, it included whole baby carrots which was a bit childish, in my opinion grating the carrots over the salad would have been a better idea; however, the raspberry dressing included with it was very good and seemed house made, and the greens themselves were healthy and not at all wilted. The Armenian rice pilaf was good, however the trout itself was undercooked, which I brought up with our server John and he was very quick to take it back and have the kitchen cook it further to address the issue. When the trout was brought back, it was almost perfectly cooked (hard to cook fish right if you have to do it twice) and they had refilled my rice pilaf for free and without ever addressing that they had, which was a kind gesture, and I happily ate it all. When cooked properly, the trout special is very good for the $21 I paid. My fiancé's lasagna was drowned in sauce, and it was difficult to locate the noodles. According to her, it was good and she enjoyed it, but she was sure to tell me that she did not like the sauce to noodle ratio. Overall, for what I paid, I enjoyed the service and the staff is wonderful to deal with, but aspects of the food were not up to par for how the Chippewa Room markets itself and for the average price of a meal there. If these few issues are sorted out though, I'd happily go back for dinner again, especially given how pleasant the staff was.
I've gotta say, this place totally blew me away. The salad dressing was phenomenal and the Swiss Onion Woup was delicious. I had the NY Strip and my fiance had the Filet and were amazed by the flavor of our food. We were so full, but then saw a cart get rolled out and a waiter made another table some Banana's Foster and it looked so good that we had to order some up for ourselves and our waitress came over with the cart and made it right in front of us, it's an impressive process and I've gotta say, it was truly amazing. One of the best deserts we've ever had, I can't recommend it enough. My fiance and I both agreed that it was one of the best meals we've had in a long time. We'll surely stop back when we're in town.
We travel from the southeast to upper. Feel like it?s more like $$$ but absolutely worth it. We were all very full after having the appetizers and whitefish dishes but still couldn?t help to order the dessert for a try. Joe was our server and he?s super patient and familiar with every dish they provide. Highly recommend this place if you first go to the upper and want to find a place to relax after enjoying the beautiful sunset at the lakeshore.
Good food, good service. The atmosphere is crazy fun! They've got just about every kind of taxidermy critter in that room that the Northern Great Lakes has to offer!!
Delicious appetizer, crab cakes and French Onion soup. Had broiled whitefish which came with potato and veggies.. also had whitefish sandwich for entree came with French fries and Cole slaw that was yummy. Too full for dessert. Definitely would eat here again. Service was great, Jeremy was very busy but he kept up with all the tables and was super friendly to all the customers through all the busyness. Kudos to him!!
Awesome place to spent your evening and have a wonderful diner. Per my feelings this place somewhere in between $$ and $$$, but it totally worse money. Service is amazing, food quality really cool. It feels like your favorite homemade meals from your granny :) Great Native American atmosphere allows you to relax and enjoy your meal. Alcohol cocktails really contains alcohol and other beverages also very good. Recommending this place for special occasion or just to spent the night in very comfortable and friendly environment.
As foreigners, it's easy for us to feel unwelcomed but Nick and Jamie made us feel absolutely welcomed like no other place. The foods was by far one of the best in town and the atmosphere was fantastic. I definitely recommend here to anyone who is looking for fine dining in town.
We had dinner at Chippewa room twice in a row as both the food and the service was excellent. We ordered their specials, salads and desserts. Food was delicious ? Joe, our server, was super helpful and friendly. We had some nice conversations about the island + the city and he recommended us several places to visit which only locals would know. Overall, had a great memorable experience. We will visit the restaurant again when we are in MI.
