We ate here twice during our travels through the UP. Great burgers that were cooked to order. I believe the one burger was called The Might Mac...? It was loaded with bacon and Mac&Cheese! Who doesn't love a local place that offers great craft beers as well! The pier is right outside, after eating take a stroll along the pier.

My father in law's "Poorman's Whitefish" (whitefish and vegetables steamed in foil), was served to the next table by mistake. After taking a few bites the woman complained. The server then took the platter, brought it to my father in-law, and asked if he still wanted it since the woman had only eaten "a few mushrooms!"

Come here just about every time I go to St Ignace, (every month but March 2014 since November 2013), and they serve up a melt in your mouth White fish plank dinner complete with potatoes and veggies on the plank, and their Down and Dirty Martini is the best ever. Seasonal patio seating or dine in. Just look for the... More

They have great homemade soups and sandwiches we didn't try any large dinner items as we had a large lunch. The wait staff were very attentive.

The staff here was very rude and unprofessional. The food was not good...go somewhere else! There are better choices in the area where I am sure your patronage will be more appreciated!

Not only is the food fanatic, but the staff is incredible! If you love comfort food, you really need to try the Mac and cheese! It's not like anything you have had before! It's cheesy, garlicky and downright sinful. We've eaten here several times and in different seasons and I haven't been disappointed with anything. It's a must stop whenever... More

We read about this restaurant in the information packet in our hotel room. We were not disappointed. The whitefish and perch were delicious. There is a large salad bar that you can add to your meal for a nominal cost. It had many interesting selections. The décor in the restaurant was interesting -- many antique items. Very comfortable booths and... More

Awful! We were a party of four with a reservation at 7pm. It was not crowded and our waiter, Bob, had only two tables. We waited over 15 minutes for Bob to even take our drink order. We waited for our food for over an hour even though Bob's other table was served quickly and out the door before he... More

Since the chinese place in town is closed I thought I would eat here. The food was okay, about average, the service was okay at best, but the beer selection was very good. The worst thing is all of the fruit flies. I went to get a plate of food at the salad bar and there was at least 20... More
