Do not expect much except a great meal at more than reasonable prices. Decor in minimal as is seating space. It is possible, when they are busy, you will be seated with others. I usually do not like using plastic ware or paper plates, but make an exception here. Whatever the minuses are the pluses win. I will be back... More

We always try to come here at least once a year. They have the best whitefish you have ever had because it is caught fresh each morning. Sometimes they will run out so be sure to call and check if they are open. The whitefish was hot and you can order French fries that have a pepper seasoning or a... More

We had never had whitefish and we ate there both nights we were in Paradise. The food was great and the service was very good also. We enjoyed the good sense of humor of the waitress. So good I wish we could go back every week.

The Whitefish doesn't get any fresher than this. We had the Whitefish basket and our friends had the Perch. It was all excellent with homemade fries. Service was very friendly and fairly quick. Busy place and you won't be disappointed. Sorry the previous poster didn't think it was that great but we thought it was excellent. Prices were very reasonable.... More

Based on the reviews, expected WOW and got Good. I think it's the story that gets people excited...local fisherman fishes in the morning and serves it up in the afternoon. I'd have to say that we ate a lot of whitefish on vaca in the UP, and all of it was good, and this wasn't anything so special that I'd... More

We read the reviews and decided to stop here for lunch on our visit to Whitefish Point. Wow!! The fish was excellent, as was the sides and service. You can tell this is a family run business and they answer all the questions you have. We've been in this area for a total of 6 days and this is the... More

Loved this place. Stopped here for an early dinner because of the reviews here and also recommended by one of the volunteers at Whitefish Point, Shipwreck Museum. It was great, the building is nothing fantastic to look at but that made it all the better. ....real local, authentic restaurant. We ordered the fried whitefish and it was wonderful. The fries...

Very fresh fish, like out of the lake that morning and it tasted fresh. the grilled white fish was the best I have ever had. My husband had it fried and it was very, very good, but The Villager in Charlevoix has the best fried white fish in the world. The smoked white fish appetizer was the best I've ever... More

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.
