Very good food presented nicely

Visited Skaliwag's with four others. Not much for table seating. Kendra was our server and she was very friendly. Food was tasty and presented nicely for a bar restaurant. Cook owner Chris stopped by our table several times to make sure all was well. After leaving the restaurant we realized we... read more

Our food was amazing! We had a large party seated outside and all of our food was brought out in a timely manner. Everything was hot and delicious.

The food at Skaliwags is amazing! Although they are known for their seafood, I enjoyed one of the best vegetarian meals of my life! My boyfriend said that that the swordfish was the best he's ever had. The service was friendly, and the chef visited each table to make sure that everyone was happy with their meal. We dined with...

Chef Chris and his team prepare and serve seafood out of this world. Skalawags in Algoma Wi is a hidden treasure of 5 star food in a dive barbin Algoma WI. Start with the she-crab bisque soup; then the grilled romance, followed by the mouth watering fish and steak!!! You cannot go wrong here!! Enjoy!

I can not rate the food quality at Skaliwags, as there was a 2 1/2 hour wait for a table (on a Saturday night) and I did not want to wait quite that long. The atmosphere is exactly as described by other reviews - small dive bar. Supposedly they have five star food. I did see a few plates being... More

With living in Algoma, I am used to eating your typical fish from the lake. I have been to Skaliwag's many different times since they opened, and have to say Chris (Owner) always amazes me with a different type of seafood cooked to perfection every time. A little pricey, but the food it worth it. There has been many times... More

Skaliwags is an experience. Will definitely return. Food was memorable, and drinks were great. Because this place has not spent a ton of money on decor, their efforts are in the food and service. And it shows. I loved the crowdedness of the place, the noise, it makes one feel like you are part of "the" place to be!

Second visit. First time a year ago was amazing! Sadly not so this time. Mashed potatoes cold-not cooled but cold. Fish was not seasoned consistently. Ordered Cajun. Half the fish had no seasoning at all. Dessert was fabulous but for $100 for 2 people I expect better.

Prices inflated for ok food, environment is loud, and not reliable for events. We had food we liked, but doubtful we will go back.
