The Bread Bar In Benton Harbor Michigan- Restaurant Review

We really want to LOVE this place, but…

Excited to see what they have done in an old insurance building (I think?), great ambiance, trendy and casual, although when busy very noisy, although have been told they are working on it…

Service has been great, Nicole has been our bartender as well as Billy, and both very accommodating, and enjoyable to talk to…

We enjoy sitting at the bar, and this bar falls a bit short- there are only a couple of great seats, otherwise you risk sitting next to the kitchen or being bumped by the staff at the service station.

Food is good, but do feel there is a bit of hype with it…we always leave hungry. For the two of us we are used to leaving full and satisfied from places like the Ideal Place in Benton Harbor, or Soes in Sawyer…

We have experimented twice with (1 salad, plus 1 app, plus one main dish to share), and then the last time we each got a main dish and shared an app- 2 drinks each, but still hungry, with a bills of $80 to $100(we included tip to this)- thus higher than some of our other favorite haunts, and equal in quality.

We love the Roast Chicken, the salmon was ok (disappointed it was farm raised- I do not agree with the assertion that some farm raised lots are good- the research speaks for itself- click here for an interesting recent article addressing the problems), small piece and came with no sides, vege’s or anything. The French Onion purses appetizer are delicious, both the white fish and arugula salad are decent.

I believe outside seating is soon, and that should be a great place to have a drink and a bite.

We will continue to go, although not as regular as our other favorites.
