Ate here for lunch, had a whitefish sandwich which was very good. Wife had a cup of soup and a salad which were average. Prices were reasonable, view of the marina was nice, good service, average selection and atmosphere. Not bad but nothing special.

Weekend trip to Bayfield. Had to stop at the Pier Plaza and eat out on the deck overlooking Lake Superior. Super friendly and helpful wait staff. I chose the fish tacos with sweet potato fries, and beverage of choice while enjoying the views of the lake and watching the boats come in and out of the harbor. Lovely stop to... More

We ate here twice in our three day stay, we liked it so much! First went on Thursday, and I ordered the fish and chips----wonderful!! The freshly caught whitefish was delicious and the thick chips tasted hand sliced and fresh. The other members of the family all enjoyed their meals, and we decided to return for the Friday fish fry,... More

We decided to eat at Pier Plaza restaurant when we went to Bayfield. Everything was wonderful. FOOD: the food was very very delicious. The chicken wings were VERY hot, fresh, 'n' yummy! STAFF: It did not feel like restaurant service, it felt like you were staying at a best friends house. Mary, the waitress, made me feel right at home!... More

Patio, extensive drink list, fresh, made-to-order dishes, and perfectly prepared fish! We had a special for dinner--almond and walnut encrusted white fish with a mustard sauce and accompaniments. Spectacular! We also ate there for lunch, having the burger on special (blue cheese and bacon--hearty) and "Sharon's favorite" as listed on the menu (chicken breast grilled to perfection with cheese, bacon,...

We ate at Pier Plaza twice during our stay in Bayfield. The burgers were huge and a good value. The strawberries were in season while we were there so we were tempted by the fresh strawberry shortcake -- and it was fantastic! My husband ordered blueberry pie and said it was among the best pie he's ever had from a... More

When vacationing in or around Bayfield, lovers of a great Bloody Mary need only to stop here. House made mix, a generous amount of vodka, a beef stick, vegetables and a beer chaser make a wonderful combination. I had the Fish and Chips with the Lake Trout and it was delicious. Others in our group enjoyed sandwiches, quesadillas and sweet... More

We dined here several times on our honeycation! Frank the bartender was super friendly and was on top of his game both times we went in. Fish fry is amazing! We had dessert there one of the nights and the lava cake was less than warm. All in all, great location, great food and unbelievable service! Jarred

Bayfield mainstay. Good location on the pier. Menu selection is varied and served in large portions. Good food and friendly service any time of day. Wonderful deck seating for people and boat watching.
