Best Whitefish!

We visit here at least once every time we are in the Upper Peninsula. Great whitefish and the chowder is INCREDIBLE! You won't find much in the way of atmosphere, but the food makes it well worth the visit!

Only fresh caught here and only from Lake Superior. Timely service with a smile. Fish not frills, plain and simple food.

Our entire family enjoyed dinner here -- including a preteen and teenager. We felt lucky to get the last portion of smoked whitefish spread that night, which we enjoyed while our broiled whitefish was prepared. Service was friendly and courteous, and the fish couldn't have been more fresh or delicious.

Love whitefish? Then this is your place! Be sure to get there early enough, as they serve that day's catch until they run out!

We were lucky to be able to have an early dinner at Brown Fisheries Fish House. They have very fresh whitefish and serve until the daily catch is gone. It opens at 12:30 p.m. and may be open as late as 7:00 p.m.. On the date we ate there, fish was gone by 4:30 p.m. and they posted their closed... More

Our hotel staff recommended this restaurant for dinner. I'm so glad they did! This family run restaurant serves freshly caught fish, which is to die for. I had the whitefish basket, which was served up quickly and was delicious ( I don't usually order fish). Do not be fooled by the small, nondescript exterior and parking lot. Awesome food served...

My wife and I had never been here before, but decided to check it out with my brother and his wife when we were in the area. We happened to catch them on the last day of the season they were open. Turns out, we were all so glad we did. A couple of us weren't even crazy about fish,... More

If you eat whitefish anywhere, be sure to eat it here! It is the most delicious, flaky, perfectly flavorful fish you have ever eaten! The fish is caught within hours before hitting your plate. This is a family-run establishment, and it shows!

Found this restaurant on Facebook, but someone had said they were closing for the season, and would be closed the days we were there. However, as we were driving past around lunch time, we noticed lots of cars around and decided to check it out. So glad we did! They had decided to stay open one more week! My husband... More
