Just okay

My mother & I thought we'd try somewhere different on our way through Munising so stopped here. We both had the 'senior' fish & chips dinner. The price was fantastic as a salad and vegetable were included. The fish was good but I didn't really care for my fries- not that they were horrible, but... read more

We ate here in early October, after a Pictured Rocks cruise. We were seated in a booth, next to a divider that separated the upper level from the lower level - it was covered in dust. Burgers were overcooked, and not very tasty. Will not return.

The decor was a surprise, expecting the nautical motif and walking in to find porcelain dolls in a glass case and empty info racks (every other business has them full of brochures for local venues). The place looked dingy, and was very warm despite the time of day. Only 2 working the floor, only a few tables cleared. The food... More

We had a greaIt experience at The Navigator. Our waitress Lisa was excellent. Both my husband and I had the soup of the day which was beef stew soup. Lisa told us that they actually cook a beef roast and shred it up for the soup. I had the senior meatloaf which was very good and my husband had the... More

My husband and I both ordered BLT's and fries...something quick before Pictured Rocks boat tour. Food was good as was the service. Our only downside was the room was too warm. There were fans going, but it really was too warm to be comfortable, and this was September.

We stopped in not knowing what to expect. I ordered the corned beef sandwich and was surprised when I got it. It wasn't thinly sliced and stack but just a chunk of meat. I will say for the price they should have given a bit more meat. I didn't expect much but it was delicious! So tender, tasty and lean.... More

Every time I've eaten there I have regretted it. Either the food comes out terrible or the heat is at 62 or its so slow I'm ready to die by the time the food comes. Today I came in at 11:30. Waitress got to us at 12:05. Told us they stopped serving pancakes at 12. 45 minutes later other patrons... More

Good pasties. Flavorful, hot and very filling. Good location with good parking. Great fish dinners and sandwiches. A nautical themed spot to relax and enjoy a meal

Lovely eatery with a nautical motif. My breakfast here was large and priced reasonably. Service was ok. Very nice view of the waterfront.
