Not for the very hungry

Unbelievably slow service. Took forever to even get a glass of water. Meatloaf with masked potatoes and gravy was delicious. When you've been travelling for many days it is a nice change to have a meal that tastes like home. Located just a short walk from the Pictured Rocks boat dock. Could... read more

The food was delicious. I had their whitefish that they catch daily on Superior. We are on the patio because it was gorgeous out. We had a beautiful view. The decor is nautical theme. It's a bit dingy and out dated. When we visited the toilets were clogged and the bathrooms were a bit dirty.

decor was appealing, food was ok. Service was Horrible and not to the fault of our server. Seated within 10 minutes, but drinks took 20 mins, food took about 90 minutes. Our original server was sent out on an errand by management. Asked other server why so slow and she responded rudely and harsh. Asked to see management and the... More

We asked for eggs over medium and well done potatoes. We got whites not done and white potatoes. We sent them back and got microwaved rubber and potatoes. Inedible, we paid the bill and left. We spend a week in munising every year, we have eaten there often and the food was ok, but never great. We will not be... More

Went here after getting to Munising around 8pm. Wanted something quick and we saw the "Breakfast Served All Day" sign and made up our minds. My boyfriend said it was the best breakfast food he's had in a long time! I had the patty melt and it was delicious. Service was fast too! Must try!

For a town that boasts fresh fish, they were sadly lacking! Our fish and chips was of the frozen variety, fried in not-hot-enough oil, so very greasy that it was dripped across the plate. Service was awful, the waiter took our order, dropped it off, and never seen again. We had to go looking for him for our check, and... More

They touted fresh homemade pasties, when served it was not properly heated. When asked, was told they come from New York - Frozen. Service was poor and slow at best. Would not recommend this restaurant.

The food was average. The service was very slow. The view of the water was great. You could see the people lining up for the Pictured Rock cruise.

I took my fiance to the Navigator one evening to have him order the trout and he said it was definitely worth it! It was very pricey, but a decent night out.
