This place has real good perch and walleye. The tartar sauce is outstanding (especially when used as a dip for the fries). The folks running the place are very friendly and helpful for local attractions.

This has been a staple of ours for many, many years. This is a small town, and the regulars love to tell visitors about the maritime history of Manitowoc and the places to see. Have never been disappointed. Great pub...great company. Homemade Lobster Bisque is to die for...from an old New Orleans recipe. We never are concerned about the speed... More

Came across this bar while walking around downtown Manitowoc. Cute nautical decor and reasonably priced beverages. They have a kitchen there too but we just stopped by for a drink.

We decided to try this place after reading through other TripAdvisor reviews and it was even better than what I was expecting. They had a great deal on Saturday nights of getting a cheeseburger and chips for $3.00 and then we also ordered the cheesecurds. They were the best cheesecurds I have ever eaten. The staff was also very friendly.... More

This was the third time in a month that I have gone there for the Friday night fish. The food is very good. When it is busy the service is slow. Very small kitchen. Worth the wait. have a beer and enjoy your company.

Best place in downtown Manitowoc for burgers and a good selection of beer on tap. Stopped in this Saturday with my husbands parents for lunch. You can't beat the $2.50 cheeseburger and chips special. Added a few appetizers and we had plenty of food. Service is friendly, food was good and the nautical atmosphere is nice. Cash only for orders... More

My wife and I like to go to different perch fries every week. Last month it was the Fat Seagull's turn. Took a while for us to be noticed. We moved from a table near the front door to the bar. It was cold outside and you would think people from Wisconsin would know enough to close the front door... More

Welcome to small town main street Manitowoc, Wi. If you're traveling on the SS Badger it's only about two blocks away from the lake and has great affordable "bar food" and great quality food for a bar. The locals have kept this place going for many years. The Fat Seagull has a neat naughtical theme to it considering the long... More

We ordered a couple burgers and cheesecurds. The burgers were great for the price and the cheesecurds were awesome. I grew up in Wisconsin and was just back for a visit and those were the real deal. My husband got a beer sampler and we were both amazed at the low price once we got the bill. Fun place :)

I love the renovation you are starting. Plus, your staff is always friendly and your beer is always cold. :) Perfect combination. Also the outdoor patio is a big hit and I appreciate that you have live music in the summer months! Thanks!
