Excellent food, friendly service in a relaxing atmosphere. The fish special lunch was delightful, with good fish and tasty sides.

My husband and I had lunch at the Pier Plaza, formerly the Pickled Herring, in Bayfield on a recent fall color trip. The service was attentive and friendly. My lake trout sandwich was excellent and I enjoyed it a lot. It arrived hot and juicy, perfectly done. My husband had Cheeseburger with caramelized onions, cheese, and barbeque sauce. it also...

My husband and I stopped in here on a Saturday night. Even though they weren't busy, we stood for over 5 minutes by the front entrance as we "waited to be seated." No waiter/host showed up so we just took a seat at the bar. The bartender was very attentive and was working her tail off to make sure everyone... More

My mother and I had lunch at the Pier Plaza Restaurant on July 23, our first full day in Bayfield. We had been walking around downtown Bayfield, just getting the "lay of the land," and decided on the Pier Plaza since it seemed to evoke so much of the local atmosphere. There was seating available on the deck, but we... More

Staff is very friendly and service has always been well above average. This restaurant is in a good location next to the lake. It offers inside... More

Given other positive reviews, we decided to try this on a Saturday night. It was busy but not packed. One of us had the bacon sandwich, which had melted cheese. That was good. The other person had quesadillas with chicken, which was ok at best. We asked the wait person's opinion on a couple of different entrees. He said that... More

If you are doing the circle tour, I'm sure you have tried the fresh whitefish at other restaurants. But be sure to try it here. They broil it in a wine sauce and it's delicious. The salad uses spring greens and has an olive tapenade on it. Get the sweet potato fries as your starch...they are yummy.
