We had dinner here on our way home last night after being in Northport. The clam chowder had good flavor, but very few clams. The burgers were up to standard, but the wine prices have steadily gone up over the years. I felt that in this kind of a setting, $28 for a bottle of Alamos Malbec is a bit... More

Stop by and grab a burger and an ice cream puff with the chocolate caramel sauce- what a comfort. This is a fun place to go and warm up after the ice caves or traveling through on 22. This is an authentic Northern Michigan experience. Check it out.

A fascinating history in this Bohemian part of Michigan. This old house has been many things to the community and for a good number of years now, the family owned Fischers Happy Hour is a solid stable reliable spot for excellent chicken dinners and burgers. They have wonderful homemade soups (clam chowder on Fridays has been my favorite for many... More

My husband and I stopped at the Happy Hour for dinner last night and had a great burger. The service was fast and friendly. We have gone there in the past and left because we were not waited on in a timely fashion so were pleasantly surprised! Guess we have to put it back on our "go to" list.

My husband and I went here after reading about it in a magazine. It is located in an old farm house. We each ordered the perch special. The dinner came with a salad or coldslaw, perch, green beans, and french fries. . . delicious, and plenty of food. A very clean restaurant.

I've been going to Fischer's Happy Hour Tavern since I was in my early teens (a long time ago). The food has always brought us back. I appreciate it even more now that I truly understand the pleasures of a roadhouse/tavern. Right off the side of M22, the Happy Hour is a wonderful mix of locals and tourists. The tavern... More
