Good local food, good service, nice prices

Very popular place in downtown Charlevoix. Prices are affordable, and, once seated and order taken, service is fast. The best things to eat are the local fish. Servings are generous and the beer list is ample.

We dine at the villager every year when we visit Charlevoix. I always get the lake perch and it never disappoints! It's a fun bar atmosphere that's still family friendly with a patio seating and a somewhat obstructed view of the lake (although it's across thee street from the lake). It's great location in downtown Charlevoix is perfect! A must... More

This was our first time to charlevoix so I was on trip advisor a lot! Boy am I glad we found this place! We loved it so much the first night, we made sure we came back again later in the week! Awesome whitefish, great burgers and the kids loved the grilled cheese. Both nights were busy but our party... More

We ate dinner at The Villager on a recent trip to Charlevoix. This restaurant was recommended by the desk staff at our hotel. The fish was good - tasted fresh and nicely prepared - but sides were just average. My husband and son enjoyed the variety of tap beers. Unfortunately, the wait was long and service was slow; our waitress... More

My girlfriend and I both ordered burgers. They were ok but nothing special. The onion rings were the worst I have ever had. They were worse than Burger King's (For real!). We had Linda as our waitress. She was very nice and knowledgable. The food is overpriced for the quality. If you are having lunch, go down the street to... More

Whitefish seemed to be the specialty, so we ordered it. My husband ordered broiled, and it was one piece, dry around the edges but ok overall. I ordered fried, and got two large pieces, mealy and fishy tasting. The flesh was dark when I removed the skin. The cole slaw was good.
