Since we live in Bayfield we have the opportunity to eat here regularly and I have found their food to be consistently good, whether I order off the full dinner menu or just order a salad or burger for take-out.

We enjoyed lunch on a very beautiful Monday, and so glad we stopped by before we took the ferry to Madeline Island. It was gorgeous on the patio, busy, but not crazy as it was a few days before the Apple Festival. I ordered the white fish & sweet potatoes and was very pleased with my choice. My husband ordered...

Thick and creamy! Excellent flavor and was the right touch for warming up after the boat tour. Very busy but was able to sit in bar area where it was not crowded. Staff were very friendly and prompt.

Had the Friday night fish fry. It was very busy, during the apple festival. They did a great job working with the number of people. The fish was good. Had good service. Cole slaw was interesting, my husband liked it. Very reasonably priced.

Menu is diverse. I had the white fish sandwich. The fish apparently are caught and served daily. I understand that is what would be a local food for this area. It was so good the supplied tartar sauce was unneccesary to add. I love sweet potato fries. These were more of a wedge. A wedge in my opinion is more... More

Stopped in during the extremely busy Applefest weekend. Found a place to sit at the bar and was surprised how quickly we received our food. Friendly staff. Food was delicious.
