Charlevoix - Northern MI

I've been going up to Charlevoix for the better part of 20 years now. I'm getting excited about going up this summer (if only for a long weekend) so here are my favorite restaurants:

Rowe Inn - fine dining. Rack of lamb is always awesome.

Grey Gables - upscale dining. Not as good as it used to be, but I still love going. Great bar.

Terry's - upscale. They always have creative fish dishes, but I once had a steak there that still rates in my top 5.

Juillerette's (sp?) - love the cinnamon rolls and other breakfast foods.

Weathervane - casual. Yes it's a madhouse and very inconsistent, but I still love all the Stafford's restaurants Great Lakes Choweder and planked whitefish.

Duds:
The Argonne
Guiseppe's
Charly's

I am not partial to Tapawingo (a little too frou frou for me) but I can appreciate what it is trying to accomplish.

Hope everyone has a great summer.
