We ate here because we wanted a sample of local seafood. I got whitefish & my husband ordered walleye. For $18 I got one filet and a very small portion of cold fries. My husband's was a little better but he had to pay $2 extra to get a baked potato. Would not come back.

We've eaten at the Bluebird several times over the years. The food is always good, and we always try to get local whitefish, perch, or whatever they have. This year they had excellent bluegill. Nice service as well.

We stopped in after a day of winery touring and a walk through fish town in Leland. It was a Friday night, and the place was very busy. Our server was overwhelmed and harried, but had an excellent attitude and really tried to give us good service; he also kept checking in to make sure we were okay. I had... More

Usually eat here when we visit Fish town. This restaurant has beautiful views of the river next to it and is known for its White Fish.

We've patronized the Blue Bird, both the bar and the restaurant, for many years, so there were few surprises during our visit. Outdoor seating was not available on this beautiful summer night - sign said they didn't have enough staff to open the patio. The restaurant salad bar was cold and fresh, though warm plates from the dishwasher topped the... More

We visited Leland for the day and didn't know where to go. We tried the Bluebird after asking some customers that had just eaten at the restaurant. We weren't disappointed. We were there on a Sunday around 1:00pm and they were having their brunch. Because we so we of our family wanted to order off the menu we were advised... More

Sometimes you get a gem, sometimes you get a dud. I think this was a dud. There are two parts to the place, a pub section and a restaurant section. The restaurant section had the view of the little river. We had to wait some time for the hostess to seat us, although the restaurant was pretty empty. The food... More

we were 4 of us. We had to wait a little in a very nice bar area where we had an excellent Malbec. The personal was knowledgeable in wine, and that is a plus. We ate on the outside patio. Very nice ambiance. We all had fish and it was fresh and tasty. The service was excellent and prices were... More

My husband and I had lunch here on recommendation from a AAA auto club employee. Hostess was not friendly as we entered and were seated. I ordered a chicken salad sandwich which arrived on dry wheat bread. I ordered the sandwich on rye so the server gave me two slices of rye and I was expected to transfer the lettuce... More

Nothing special here other than the cinnamon roll appetizer. Salad bar looked unappealing, so I didn't get a salad even though I was really wanting one! Soup options were poor as well.
