Got off the Apostle Island boat cruise and the restaurant stayed open for the returning passengers. The food had lots of flavor, and the carrot cake was huge and tasty.

This is my "go to" spot when the weather allows you to eat outside. You can take in all the happenings at the dock below.

This is located down by the marina, so great view. There is indoor and outside seating. We ate here twice, both times good food and service. Portions are big and prices reasonable, along the the bar drinks. On Friday night they have all you can eat fish fry for 15.95, it was good and very busy place. Inside there is... More

Three adult couples for Friday dinner; four ordered the fish-fry. It is served "all you can eat" which is wonderful if you're a big eater but we were more into quality than quantity. The side salad was very good and fresh, but the fish (either trout or whitefish) was heavily battered and cut into medium-sized pieces and deep-fried. The fish... More

Very good. We had blackened whitefish sandwiches. Prompt service and good bloody Mary's. Onion rings were very good, fries could have been hotter, but they were ok

We stopped for supper. Had a short wait for a table. The hostess was very friendly and helpful. We had a table in less time than she said. The server was very attentive without being disruptive. We had another lady (possibly a manager) stop at our table to clear some plates and ask if our food was good. My wife... More

After our Apostle Islands Cruises excursion, we stopped in here for lunch. We both saw chili on the menu and ordered it. It was very, very good - very flavorful with a little kick. Our server, Mackenzi, was extremely outgoing, friendly, polite, professional, and attentive - all smiles and a genuinely nice, positive person, made us feel very welcome. Looked... More

We had lunch here on a Sunday. I had the special which was served on an absolutely delicious brioche bun...soft and clearly freshly baked. My husband said his burger was one of the best he's had in awhile...same delicious bun! The handmade chips that accompanied the burger were great. Our server, Mary as a delight and very accommodating.

I ordered the fish and chips. The fish had a nice coating and a good taste. I would have preferred fries instead of their kettle chips. The cole slaw was very good. The waitress was prompt and very friendly. Sitting outside on the deck added to a good experience.

Thank Alan F
