Unbelievable potato salad!!!

You must have the potato salad. Cole slaw was delicious too. I liked the perch better than the white fish. Totally supper club and ya gotta love it. The service was wonderful. I can't wait to go back for the hamburger.

We were looking for a good place to grab a burger on our way home from our stay in Ephraim. We saw this on Trip Advisor and thought we would give it a try. The burgers and fries were homemade, and some of the best we have had. We were impressed with how friendly they were. We really felt right... More

We stopped just to turn around in the driveway and decided to go in for lunch. Turned out to be our favorite meal of our trip. We ate our meal sitting at the bar; highly recommend the bar over the dinning room. Brad the owner was super friendly with everyone and we enjoyed hearing the history of the place. My... More

Great food at this bar - restaurant. Nice place to have a drink before sitting down for dinner. Steaks are great and lobster can't be beat - all at a very reasonable price.

From the outside this really did look like a typical old style Wisconsin bar and restaurant. As you enter the front door the bar is right there. We went for dinner. I guess we just didn't order the right thing........should have gone with a burger. My husband got a hot ham and cheese sandwich.........and that is exactly what he got:... More

Hidden away on County B a few miles north of the shipyards in Sturgeon Bay. This is a classic Wisconsin bar and restaurant that got famous for doing one thing very well - hamburgers. They do have plenty of other selections, but we have never gotten any further down the menu. Just good ground beef, cooked nicely. Local and transients... More

We stopped here for a drink last year while on a road trip and the proprietor was very friendly so we decided to stop again this year. Same friendly service, good drinks, and a fun time.

This is a diamond in the rough, or more a secret great place. I have stayed here for long weekends/vacation weeks and had a couple meals at the standing room only restaurant. The owners are truly amazing. The cottages are close to the water and the restaurant perfectly situated on the property. Lake Michigan is stunning. Every thing about this... More

The staff was friendly, but the food left much to be desired. On Monday's the menu is VERY limited...we had the burgers. Their trademark is to serve their burgers on bread...the meat itself was ok, but on sliced bread??...soggy & sloppy....what a mess! Thought we'd give it another try on Tuesday....had frog legs. They were watery and bland. Maybe their... More
