The resort boasts an impressive five different restaurants on the property, making sure guests never need to leave the resort to find something new to try.
Aerie Restaurant and Lounge is worth the meal for the views, if nothing else. Located on the 16th floor of The Tower, it offers stunning views for miles of the surrounding countryside through its floor-to-ceiling windows. Sunsets are particularly breathtaking. The décor of the Aerie is distinctly modern, with the metal accents and the simplistic chairs and tables matching the seamless windows.
The menu of the Aerie is partially dictated by what foods are in season, as ingredients are locally sourced, and can change slightly, but it focuses on a diverse arrangement to satisfy anyone. The offerings range from burgers to Japanese food to filet mignon to Italian and anything in-between. The Aerie also offers a wide range of deserts, wines, and spirits to match whatever meal guests choose. For those wishing for just a quick snack, the Aerie’s Lounge is perfect for a quick bit and a beer while still enjoying the excellent view.
Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, The Sweetwater is perfect for the guest who likes a relaxed environment and a diverse menu. The décor of the Sweetwater is a simple and guests are arranged in a semi-circle with a buffet area situated in the middle. The menu includes staples such as soups, salads, burgers and sandwiches, pizza, and entrees such as pan-roasted chicken and meatloaf.
The Grille is located off the 18th hold of the Bear golf course and is perfect for the looks to bring its guests to the elite golf clubs of Europe. The décor of the Grille really works to bring this to light with stone and wood accents, tartan chairs, and wild game on the walls. The menu is classic club fare with salads, burgers, wings, and crawfish among others and a fully stocked bar to occupy any meal.
For those who don’t wish to get out of the Michigan weather, the Grille also offers a patio with lawn chairs where guests can watch the golfing action.
Jack’s Sports Bar is the ideal location for guests wishing to catch up on a game while getting a bite to eat. Jack’s offers four wide-screen TVs hung strategically placed throughout the bar so guests can enjoy the game no matter where they are sitting. Jack’s menu is similar to The Sweetwater and offers a select variety of comfort foods that are perfect finger foods while enjoying some games with friends.
