The sunsets from this restaurant are amazing. That isn't the only thing going for it. All the food we tried was incredible- from Lobster bisque to hamburgers to an Asian salad. The variety was great- especially when you think you are on a 4x2 mile island in the Mid West

Upper Deck is located above Boardwalk in a beautiful glass enclosed deck over looking the Marina/Bay. Delicious seafood and great selection of burgers. Best Lobster Bisque this side of Maine!!

A little chilly but we are outside. The view made up for any slight discomfort. We had the lobster bisque for an appetizer. Wonderful - large chunks of lobster and a very tasty cream soup. I wanted to overdose on lobster so I had the lobster roll. Very fairly priced and very good. Others had burgers, lobster mac & cheese,... More

3 out of 4 in our party ordered a Bratwurst sandwich. It was served with grilled peppers & onions, fries & a dill pickle spear. It was a "special of the day" during Octoberfest so not a regular menu item. We didn't ask the price & nearly fainted when we saw the bill. $14.00 for each tiny brat (& they... More

For the price it should have been so much better. I got the perch and walleye. For $27 it should have been spectacular. Needless to say it was not. On a good note the scenery was nice looking out into lake Erie.

They are famous for it but we've had better. Lots of cream and lobster chunks. Great location right on the water. Service was also very good.

The lobster bisque was out of this world! Went back several times for the bisque! Service and atmosphere was great. A little more on the pricey side.
