Excellent white fish

This fish is superb and done to perfection. Great view over the harbor and Madeleine island. Excellent service and good prices with a nice selection of beer. Highly recommended.

Sat on the deck...beautiful view of the Lake. Food was very good. They took the time to be sure my food was not cross contaminated as I have Celiac. Any restaurant that will do that is wonderful.

Janine, sorry if I mis-spelled her name was terrific. Cocktails, appetizers, Friday Fish Fry and lunch were all very good. Look forward to going there again.

When visiting Bayfield you meet the nicest people and can eat at the most surprising places. At the bottom of Rittenhouse St. is the Pier Plaza that offers wonderful, home cooked meals, which are reasonably priced! The Pier has a lovely upscale dinner feel, great food and a really nice bar. The service was fresh, friendly and attentive. The views... More

Our second time to this restaurant was just as good. We did have to wait to be seated but the town was over run with visitors for the ice caves. The staff is friendly and we left way too stuffed. The cheese cake was great too.

Came here on a very busy night but it didnt take to long to be seated. Had fish and the onion rings. Both were very good onions rings nice and crispy. The side of cole slaw I had with my fish was excellent. Would come again

Soup was good, but barely warm. They do offer GF bread/bun options for sandwiches. The thick, crispy sweet potato fries were the best part of our meal. Friendly waitress!

Came for dinner... it was a busy night, and the guy working the door was pretty rude, clearly trying to keep people from coming. He told us a 90 minute wait. We walked outside, called, and talked to a cheerful girl who told us 30 minutes. We came back. Ended up eating at the bar... very friendly bartender, excellent fish,... More
