We love Skaliwag's! Chef Chris' creative dishes are truly delicious and we enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. I just suggest getting there early for a seat.

We found this delightful restaurants during one of our previous visits to Algoma. It's a MUST STOP for us every time we visit the area. I had Mahi Mahi the last time we visited. Chris explained that the fish had been swimming in Hawaii 27 hours earlier. Awesome food/atmosphere, friendly staff, fast service.

I love this place! The dive bar atmosphere is to die for - for a wisconsin girl like me anyway. Great drinks and taps. Their scallops are always fabulous. If you go make sure to stop at the Ahnapee Brewery for a beer first! Also a great place to check out.

Great food and friendly service. The Romaine Salad was perfect, and the Scallops were tender and delicious.Well worth the price! They are planning an expansion and we hope they maintain the fun and easygoing ambiance.

Great place, high quality food, excellent service, atmosphere tops, prices a bit high. Although people at the motel did not mention Skaliwag's, I read the reviews and had to go. Good conversations eating at the bar. As one guy said "How'd you stumble onto this place?" Had to tell him about TripAdvisor.

Excellent quality food and service at reasonable prices. Romaine salad is awesome. Every dish had great flavor and wait/bar staff was very friendly and accommodating. Ambiance is not what you would expect for $20+ entrees but they do call it a dive bar. Definitely on the high end for prices in Algoma but overall solid place.

My husband and I have eaten here many times and have sent well over a 100 of our guests here for dinner over the past year as we own a local business. "Chef Chris / Papi" and his staff always do an outstanding job on everything relating to a great restaurant. We have NEVER had a guest that we've sent... More

We absolutely loved this place. The food was amazing. I ordered the scallops. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list. We were told to get there early because it's a very small place but gets crowded. We went at about 430 and it was not crowded yet. This is a MUST go to restaurant!!
