A Must for any visit to Leelanau

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!

Our neighbors recommended we go to Fischers while we were in Leland. They said, "best cream puffs anywhere". They were right! We went twice in a week because they were so good the first time. They are worth the drive if you're in the area!

Not much has changed since I was last there over 10 years ago! Must get the deep fried cauliflower and a burger! Of course the best part is the old pac man game in the breezeway!

Great Food!! The whitefirsh was cooked to perfection. It was broasted - first time hearing this term. Ms. Pac-Man in the waiting area was a big hit for all us.

We have been visiting the Happy Hour for over 28 years when vacationing in Northport. We have never had a bad meal. We have learned to visit late (9:30 or 10:00 for the cream puff and coffee), or for a late lunch or a very early lunch (our "breakfast"). We love the cozy atmosphere and people watching. The best!!!!!. Everything... More

and were we impressed. Just driving by at lunch time they had a good crowd and the exterior looked well kept and comfortable looking. Pleasant interior with a bit of a supper club feel to it. First giveaway to the quality was the potato soup,it was a ten. Had whitefish sandwich that was of ample portion hot served with decent... More

After reading the reviews we had great expectations. But it was very disappointing. The tuna was very so so, which is hard to do. Also not sure what the reason was for the "famous chicken" because it was not that great either. Our friends had perch and was actually good. White fish was okay. Small place so we could not...

We found this place using Trip Advisor and we were so glad that we did. There are so very few places in this area and this was just what we wanted! I got the highly recommended chicken dinner: four pieces of crispy, juicy chicken (breast, thigh, leg and wing), thick fries and cole slaw and I was happy that I... More
