Iíve been twice in the span of five years and both experiences were good ones. North Peak is in an old candy factory which, when mixed with the decor, makes for a nice, pleasant atmosphere. Only had pizza while there but all the food coming from the kitchen looked appealing. Staff was friendly and attentive. As for the beer, a good selection for all taste buds. Try the sampler first then go for your favourite. Had a vanilla stout the first time and it was heavenly. The red is worth a try but the Mission Point Porter gets the gold medal from me. Took home a growler of it too. If thereís a knock against this place itís the time spent waiting for tables. Very busy on the weekends so the wait can be lengthy at times. Once seated however, they take good care of you. Definitely the place in Traverse City.
Kind of on the edge of downtown Traverse City. Didnít look like anything too special on the outside but I really liked the inside and the feel of the place. I didnít eat here but I liked the atmosphere and the beer was good. Will definetely go back when Iím in Traverse City.
A very nice rather upscale brewpub. They only have a few brews on draft including one on cask. All I tried were very good. The food however, is outstanding. Worth the stop just to eat here. I was not expecting such great food! Everything we tried was top notch. Service was very quick. Prices were very reasonable. A must see in traverse city.
Only went once but service was good. They had delicious pizza and a good atmosphere. They had an ok selection of brew, but didnít have any IPAís on tap! I had an aged stout on hand pull and it was great. To top it off the beer was cheap, only $2 a piece. I hope to make it back their again.
Located downtown. Large service area with a bar in the middle with the brewing operations in the front. Service was good and the server knew the brews. Sampler is good of the standards and had three seasonal brews. Did not get to eat but the menu was good broad selection of standard corporate and local grill selections. Met the brewmaster, she was a knowledgeable free spirit. Well worth a visit.

Has food, but I didnít eat. Had the sampler. Nice staff, nice old building. Patio and bar seating. Worth a stop, as the sampler gives you 8 different brews and they arenít bad, on the whole.
I really enjoy this brewpub. My wife likes the food here (as do I), so sheís always game to pop in when weíre in town.
The beer is solid, but not remarkable. Itís fairly typical of brewpubs that are essentially restaurants first. North Peak generally has the four or five standard menu beers, a seasonal offering, and another rotator.
It can get rather busy come dinnertime, but thatís typical of any tourist town I suppose.
Iíve always had good service, and never had an issue with my food.
I never leave here dissatisfied.
Stopped in for lunch. Spacious yet lots of more private seating. Excellent menu options and friendly staff. I only had one beer, but of course they have quite a few of their offerings and our server made sure to notify me of cask/bourbon version of one of their beers that I happily jumped at. A good place to get lunch or dinner for anyone, not just beer drinkers. Good times, and will definitely check it out again next time Iím in TC.
