There aren’t a lot of restaurant choices in Munising. We opted to try Sydney’s, which has an Australian themed menu. It’s a busy place. The food was fine and the service was okay, but neither were exceptional. The furnishings could use an overhaul…the bench seats were ripped and the stuffing was coming out (not great to sit on if you’re... More

This restaurant was what the hotel staff suggested. It was okay...I had fish and it was good. They were very busybut it was on a Saturday night. We had a hard time trying to find a place to park. The parking lot is way to small for the number of patrons that they had. It was a little on the... More

Ate here looking for fresh Lake Superior fish. Everything was fried, and greasy. Service was not great. Salad bar looked like it was from lunch. We gave it a second try for breakfast. Service was worse. Took 15 min for water and coffee, another 45 for breakfast. Breakfast was DISGUSTING. When we return to Pictured Rocks, we will not return... More

Reading the wide range of reviews of Sidney’s it appears I got lucky. I ate dinner about 9pm two nights after coming in from Pictured Rocks Lakeshore after sunset. The first night I was not expecting much because of the mixed reviews and the fact I had eaten the 3 previous evenings at The Haywire. At that hour I was... More

Don't do it. We stayed in Munising at the Holiday Inn Express overnight on our way to the Keweenaw and we were doing the Pictured Rocks Cruise the next morning. Desk clerk at the hotel suggested Sidney's. We arrived, were able to pick a table and sit where we wanted. First off? the chair were like little Bistro chairs (not... More

It's expensive and the food is, at best, average. We were there on a Friday night and they were quite busy. When we asked the front desk clerk at our hotel "where is good to eat?" she first said, "Sydney's." We balked, because we knew it was $$$, but she convinced us. Not worth it. Nothing unique or tasty about... More

Great local restaurant with a nice variety of food. Loved the soup and salad bar. I had the chicken and pasta dish with garlic toast.. There was so much I was able to eat part and then take the rest out for two more meals.. Would recommend this restaurant if ever in Munising

Food was pretty basic but the owner was so friendly and helpful. Gave us maps and tips for finding local waterfalls. Reasonably priced

The reviews said eat here and order the whitefish. We did, and were told they were out - at 5:30 in the afternoon! We were hungry and tired, so we ate the salad bar, which was ok. We saw several tables of people walk out when told there was no whitefish.

A fish dinner that costs around $20.00 should be good. It was delicious, but doesn't need to cost that much. Salad bar was nice too. Super busy and it was after 7:30 pm on a thursday night. But a nice variety on the menu.
