Not the first time we have been to Vierlings and won't be the last. I like the fresh Lake Superior while fish. They have good beer too. The restaurant is filled with history and the table in the back face Lake Superior. Be sure to make a reservation in the summer, especially on weekend; it is... read more

I wanted a different sauce on my pasta and they wouldn't change anything that I asked for. Very inflexible. Had a hair in my meal, it was replaced but I was still charged for it. This is terrible service from a restaurant.

Interesting and varied menu. The food and alcohol were both better than expected. The atmosphere is nice, old school, the walls are covered with various styles of paintings. Beer selection is good. This is my favorite place in Marquette.

This place came highly recommended. Frankly I found the place to be average, average food at a slightly higher price. Some items were way over priced. The grandkid ordered off the kids menu a ham & cheese sandwich which they charged $1.50 more for lettuce and tomato. The Blood Mary was terrible. The spinach, blue cheese salad was excellent and...

We had heard wonderful things about this place when we got here we weren't impressed. My husband had been told that they had good fish meals which was why we came. All he got was a very small piece of fish on top of a slice french bread. We had a good time because we were having a good time... More

We ate here twice during our trip in the UP. The beer was fabulous. I tried the blueberry wheat and the peach wheat. My husband tried a flight of 10 sample beers. They were all fabulous. The whitefish chowder was out of this world! We both enjoyed it. I also had the grilled whitefish for dinner one of the nights... More

Two of us had the fish chowder and grilled whitefish and it was excellent. The other had steak which was good. Key lime pie for dessert was yummy!

First the negative: the service was a little slow, but to be fair I think there was a little confusion on who was actually waiting on us. And both servers who attended to us were very pleasant and we weren't in a rush so it wasn't a big deal. The Veirling has the most amazing view of Marquette Harbor. The... More

Food is a 3 Atmosphere a 5. Has the pretentious Marquette thing happening. Usually get the Chicken Marsala which is decent.

This place had rave reviews, so we were really excited to visit, but it really wasn't up to the hype. It wasn't bad, the service was good, the food was okay, it just wasn't as impressive as we'd been lead to believe. No real complaints, but if we were in town again, we'd go somewhere else for lunch.
