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.

Luckily we had Mary for our table, she was knowledgeable, pleasant and had the whole Bayfield-thing under wraps. Nothing like a local to help give you the lay of the land. She made solid menu recommendations, we found the fish fresh and the beer cold. Good view on the deck, quieter than other places as it's close to the water... More

If you want a wonderful and filling lunch go here. The hamburgers are to "die for" and the chicken sandwich is incredible. Service nice too.

My husband and I ate here twice during our long weekend in June. The drinks were tiny and weak, but the food was delicious.We never did quite figure out if it's called Pier Plaza or the Pickled Herring. On our first visit, I had the NY Strip with Caesar salad, veggies, and fries. Steak was just a hair over my... More

I thoroughly enjoy every visit to the Pier, regardless of the season. The beer and food is always larger than the competition, tastes great, while not costing much. The bar is like a 19th hole set up, with a classy sports kinda' theme. The restaurant is cozy with a casual deck. Service here is very good, while being a family... More

Wandered in here just looking for a place to eat. Very friendly young man showed us the menu. Looked good so we went in. Katie our server was excellent. I had Whitefish - very nice. Wife had Basil pesto ravioli - outstanding.
