The Beer

When I travel I like to sample local brews and this place was great. They make all their beer at the restaurant and had a few samples...perhaps more than I should. Oh, and the food was great as well, go for the fresh whitefish

This place is known for whitefish dinners and its brewery. Beyond that, it is nothing special. Drink prices are too high, and if the place is>50% full it feels cramped plus you feel like the ventilation system isnt up to the task. We only go there when invited otherwise I avoid the place.

Took some associates there for dinner. Perfect! Children included. WONDERFUL menu and service. FRESH Lake Superior whitefish served in at least 4 ways. And great options for their whole family. A tremendous meal. Pricey, yes, but that is the premium price one must pay in Marquette in the high season. Nice to be able to see (one block away) the... More

Went here for a celebration dinner with a large group. The restaurant was very accommodating to our group on a very busy weekend. There were thirteen of us in our group and the service was very friendly and they did not rush us, which was really nice. The seem to be known for their blueberry beer but we preferred the... More

Went here for dinner with a group of 13. The food and service were very good. The building that's it 's in has a lot of character also. Most of us had whitefish but someone also got a pizza which was enough for a couple of people.

If you can only stop at one restaurant in Marquette, Vierling Restaurant and Harbor Brewery is the perfect place. It's got everything: a beautiful bar and restaurant with friendly service; a great menu, featuring Lake Superior whitefish--cooked lots of ways; and incredible beer! Try the smoked whitefish appetizer--portions are big, so be prepared to share. The beers are excellent; samplers... More

This was a nice replace to eat. The Whitefish was some of the best I've ever had. However, I always ask to have the coating or spices cut in half which made for a great dinner. They have a beer sampler of 10 beers they make which was very tasty. Be advised they total about 40 ounces so you had... More

The Vierling was highly recommended by the hotel we were staying at! We really enjoyed the atmosphere and my husband talks about the blueberry beer!
