Decent place on M-22

We stopped in here for some lunch with friends on a Saturday afternoon. The place was pretty busy, but we were able to get in after a short wait. The staff was nice, the food was good, and the beer was from Michigan. Fisher's is a great little stop while visiting the area or touring wineries.

Always consistent service and great food. Ins the summer we avoid weekends as the line is out the door. Expect a wait on Friday and Saturday nights. But worth it.

This iconic bar/tavern has been around forever, and for good reason. It's a great spot for burgers, fried chicken and they make a fantastic Reuben. We stopped in for lunch during a Fall color tour, and it really hit the spot.

I've been meaning to grab a burger here for years, but it's a drive from where we live. We did a color (beginning of) tour today and we ended up at Fischers at 4:30PM on Sunday which was the PERFECT time. The tables filled up after we arrived with locals having a Sunday meal. The specials were Ribeye steaks and... More

This is the first restaurant I recommend to friends traveling to the Leelanau Peninsula; So cozy and quaint & delicious. We came here for the first time the night of our wedding in Northport and will always go back. My husband LOVES their famous chicken dinner and I love their clams, but we've had appetizer specials that were amazing too.... More

Cozy spot and very relaxed. We have been going there for years. Food is good but the menu is very limited and there are never any new items.

I have dined at this restaurant several times, just love it except during the peak summer season when there is a rush of tourists. Most recently I enjoyed their whitefish sandwich. Freshly caught local fish fried to perfection with equally good sweet potato fries. The service was friendly and prompt. The atmosphere typically northern Michigan, casual and relaxed. Since I...

The Happy Hour is where locals and tourists mix. Great atmosphere and food. Bar chicken is delicious, the cheeseburgers are amazing and the homemade soups are the best. Especially clam chowder on Friday. Get there early as it will sell out!
