Loved the salads and the burgers were big and juicy.
One of a kind in the area. Flavors and views like no other!
This is my second time going to the Tavern for brunch and it didn’t disappoint. Great value and wonderful food. I normally don’t care for waffles but the great cook made them so soft and extremely tasty that I couldn’t pass them up or the toppings! I’ll be going back again!
The food was great and the service superb. We originally opted to sit outside but it got too cold and the staff were very helpful in moving us indoor. Interestingly, shortly after that, all other patrons sitting outside moved in as well for the same reason. Our server was extremely helpful with the menu choices, helped us pick out a great wine very reasonably priced and was most friendly. Our water glasses were never left empty and the overall ambience was understated class - not too formal but very nicely done. We will be back.
Service very slow to start. Our server greeted us right away and acknowledged we were there for a birthday. However, he disappeared and we didn’t see him for about 20 mins and in that time I had to order our drinks at the bar. He came over and said he was sorry about the wait and he was busy outside but he didn’t know that I saw him standing at the bar for at least 5 minutes chatting with the other servers—pretty sure he just forgot. It took another 10 mins to get our drink so a total of 30 mins before we received it. He did improve throughout our meal and the service was much better and I could tell he was making an effort. They have a great birthday presentation! I will say planks has really amazing food and the dishes are visually appealing. Everything was delicious. I would highly recommend for the food. However, this is the second time (out of 3x) that service has been poor/non existent at the beginning of our meal. For that reason I hesistate to fully recommend.
The organic chicken dinner is a winner! It’s local and organic. Great meal and service!
The 72 degree weather helped but between server, food, brunch menu and outside seating it was an excellent 2-1/2 hours for a distance family meal.
The charcuterie board was excellent and so was the Meyer lemon salad!
Food was great. Our first time to this restaurant. We both liked it.
Date lunch with my girlfriend.
food & service was great. We went there for an anniversary dinner and they made it special for us.
This place does not disappoint. Excellent food. Great presentation. Servers were friendly and knowledgeable. Atmosphere conducive for conversation. Enjoy every time I have been there.
The staff(Paul and our server Brian) were very attentive. Paul was so welcoming and truly cares that everyone who comes to dine gets the quality service and top notch food. Hats off to Planks.
We did a birthday dinner
What a wonderful treat. All of our food was superb, our waitstaff was pleasant & helpful. This was such a good experience!!
Great shrimp and grits.
Wonderful anniversary dinner here at this inn’s restaurant; staff were kind, generous, and accommodating and our meals and drinks were spectacular. Would recommend!
Loved the halibut, my husband had the sea bass, both were delicious.
Jen was phenomenal!
We had a nice breakfast on a busy Sunday. It was a beautiful day looking out over the St. Joseph river.
We absolutely love Planks! The food is amazing...great tasting and beautiful, too. Paul and Anthony are so attentive to everyone dining there. We go there in every season...being out at the Tiki Bar is so nice....It's our top choice for dining in this area!
Great place to have dinner when visiting Benton Harbor!
Excellent quality and value. Not fond of the main dining room but the pub area is nice - especially during the winter months with the nice fireplace.
The food and drinks were excellent and the atmosphere was great. We really enjoyed are tome there. Will defiantly stop again when we're in town.
Warm and inviting dining environment with friendly and timely servers. The menu is outstanding while the specials were truly special. The managers Anthony and Paul make a point of visiting each table to ensure your dining experience is exceptional.
Unlike anything in the area! Fresh, innovative and amazing flavors! They have it all!
Good food but definitely overpriced.
The have a fantastic brunch! Excellent bloody Mary's and chicken and biscuits!
The menu items had changed, but the chicken pesto pizza was delicious. We had a great time. The serve was very good.
We stumbled upon this place on our way back to Michigan from Indiana on New Years and couldn't wait to come back on our way back to visit family in Indiana for Thanksgiving. The food is great, the hotel is wonderful and the pool and hot tub are perfect! We especially love the food! Our kids order the wood fired pizza instead of kids pizza and it's dynamite. The tuna wonton tacos are a favorite. Never disappoints. It's a highlight of our family trips each year!
Delicious food. I had a unique salad called quinoa and kale salad (which honestly sounded boring albeit nutritious) which was the most delicious salad I’ve ever had. Also the fries are outstanding! It was a birthday of my friend and he was sung to as well as brought a piece of this outstanding cheesecake. This was not a cheesy birthday celebration but one of class. There was a sparkler and the cheesecake was served on a beautiful wooden plank in the shape of Michigan.
We decided to try Plank’s because of good reviews and the reviews were accurate. Great menu and excellent food. Sunday buffet is also available with an omelette station and other fresh choices.
Good food, good seating arrangements, and great service.
Great food and service. I love the menu and variety of choices. One of our favorite restaurants in teh area. Highly recommended.
Excellent food and friendly service. The Lobster Mac and Cheese was amazing. The martinis are delightful. While the restaurant seems exposed to the hotel lobby, once inside you don't notice. The atmosphere is cozy and very pleasant.
We went to The Plank for a bachelorette dinner. The food was good, the service was better. Everyone enjoyed the evening but the food was a bit pricey. Our table had no views except for the TV.
One of the best brunch meals I have ever had. All four of us were very satisfied.
Great view of the lake. The beet salad was very small and the avocado toast came
With bacon which it did not List in the menu. Overall just okay food.
