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.

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.

We enjoyed our first lunch here so much we came back the next day. The first lunch we both ordered fish and chips. The options were either Trout or Whitefish. Both were delicious. The chips are home made and absolutely fantastic. Our server was pleasure to talk to. The next day we enjoyed a bowl of Beef Chili soup and... More

Hubby had a delicious club sandwich and I had Reuben soup, both with sweet potato wedges and horseradish ranch dip. Great service and delicious food.

This place is a good little town restaurant. Their staff was very friendly and we stopped here twice. For dinner we have very good fish and chips and the apple crisp is to die for! We swung in once to get ice cream, excellent flavors. Then we stopped for lunch once. My husband had good wings and I had a... More
