We went in at 8pm and were seated almost immediately. We ordered our drinks and when the waitress returned she said the had to clean some glasses because they had just finished a large rush. Okay with us. We waited 15 -20 to get our order taken because our waitress had a table of 19 to take care of. This... More

We were quickly seated and served. I had the Paul Bunyan Blueberry Pancakes. They were huge and full of blueberries and absolutely delicious, as long as you didn't use the syrup from the little single serve dip pod (Like a McNugget's sauce). It tasted terrible and was a disservice to such a special pancake. The sausage links were oddly pale... More

we've always looked forward to eating at the Navigator, in spite of routinely poor service, it's location made it fun. But this time we had to leave because our waitress made us wait forever without saying a word to us... she must have walked by our table a half dozen times while we waited to give her our order. We... More

We had tried in vain to find whitefish, but they had it at the Navigator, which was recommended by our kayak guide. It was so fresh and tasty! The place itself is nothing special, it has a view of the harbor in some places, it is clean, the staff is friendly and helpful and the food wholesome and tasty. And... More

My wife and I wanted local fish for lunch and thought we were entering a seafood restaurant given the name, location and general appearance of the Navigator. There was only one local fish on the menu, Whitefish, which would have been fine except they were out of that when we were there. The only other seafood options were deep fried... More

We stopped in at lunch a day after Labor Day before a Pictured Rocks cruise. Service was poor; food was mediocre. The place was quite dirty; seemed to be a popular place for the local flies as they were everywhere : (. We will look for other options for food when in Munising. Management needs to take control of the... More

I go to Munising every summer, and there are few places I actively avoid when I'm there. This is one. I went two straight summers -- 2012 and 2013 -- and each time the experience was horrible. The service was slow. Everything was dirty. And the place was full of flies. I understand it's the U.P., but I haven't been... More

The blueberry pancakes were amazing but we did have to wait a long time to get them. Wait staff was friendly but slow. Still would go back.
