It was an okay lunch for the three of us before the Segway tour. The food was average. The staff are very nice and friendly. Not enough parking space.

This place was a huge disappointment. The food made me sick and... -poorly trained waitresses -pancakes flat and tasteless -presentation was horrible -waited 15 minutes for coffee -undercooked meat -need a refill? They take your cup away and bring it back. Just weird. -eggs look like middle school cafeteria food -"fresh berry topping"=welch's grape jelly Not coming back.

The goal of all of our staff is to provide a great dining experience. I'm disappointed we fell short on your visit. You should not have to wait 15 minutes for your beverage. I can assure you that this is not the norm at our restaurant. We train our servers extensively before they work on their own. We do have... More

Stopped for lunch after bike ride and was pleasantly surprised by the range of the menu. Breakfast served all day. Our family enjoyed cherry crepes, chicken tenders, patty melts & the best vegetarian salad. Service was attentive to food allergies. Will return. Highly recommend !

Had to ask for a new order which was still meh. The sweet potato mash was a mix of have cooked and half uncooked sweet... More

Nice to see good food at a reasonable price can still be found in Fish Ceek. Decent selections on the lunch menu included several burgers, wraps, and salads. Opens at 6:29am and breakfast served all day. Service was attentive and pleasant with outdoor seating. Right outside the Peninsula State Park, talk a walk/bike and stop by Julie's. Can't miss the...

I recently went to Julie's and had the most amazing wrap--it was the Asian chicken and the two keys to the delicious meal was the restaurant's commitment to fresh, organic, and locally grown items and the toasted sesame seeds. The restaurant has delicious food and great prices--good for all. Don't miss out on the flourless chocolate cake: you will not... More

Good food + attentive service in the heart of Fish Creek. We had the perch dinner + pork special + grilled cheese / burger (kids)- all pretty tasty. Very nice outdoor seating area. All in all- a good experience.
