Tried to eat here but it was not open. Days of operation need to be better advertised. The restaurant looks pretty run down from the outside. It is supposed to be the place to go for Lake Superior whitefish.

Hand painted sign at the roadside, "Fish and Chips 1/4 of a mile," brought us to Brown's. Fresh white fish, caught daily on their own fishing tug. You can't get more authentic than that. Serving ends when the fish run out. Our waitress directed us to what people come there for . . . the whitefish and chips. EXCELLENT! We... More

This is an unbelievable local restaurant run by local folks that are most friendly and offer great food and good service. They open at 12:00 pm and only stay open as long as they have fish. Today, we arrived right at noon and found out that they didn't have the chowder which we had heard was out of this world.... More

One of the few places to eat in Paradise! Runs to a tight schedule. The door says open till 7 but table service stops at 6:30! The white fish is good, but I have had better elsewhere in Michigan. The white fish pate that the server suggested was outstanding. Be warned it is cash or checks only!

This was one of the best meals on our 2 wk vaca and the best fish I've had in a long time. The white fish is caught daily and when it's sold out, that's it for the day. Make sure to stop here when you're in the area.

Not too many places to eat in Paradise. Nothing fancy about this place at all but the fish was fresh and tasty. FYI cash of checks only.

If your looking for a fish dinner, this is THE place to go. It doesn't get any better... Fresh fish daily, and in fact it's such a popular place sometimes they have to close early because they run out of fish. Especially whitefish...YUM !

Stumbled across this place a while back and it's now my go-to UP fish dinner. Looks like an old gas station from the road but once inside, it's quaint with terrific service. Fish is fresh caught daily and cooked to perfection. In fact, my son loved it so much, our recent trip to the UP was built around being able... More

We actually extended our stay just to eat here. When they don't have fresh fish, they are not open. Loved the "local" atmosphere. Far and away the best whitefish meal EVER!

It's now been at least 8 years ago that I was at your Fish House, but I have never had such an excellent meal. I mean, the fish was caught 2 hours before I was eating it. Couldn't be fresher than that! Service was above and beyond also. Had to wait a half hour before we could get in, but... More
