Fun people watching location.

Enjoyed a quick dinner on the bar stool patio. It was very busy because of the holiday weekend. Wait staff did a good job. Dinner was good. Flies a little annoying but not within the restaurants control.

We had dinner here twice, once on the outdoor deck overlooking Lake Superior and once inside. The burgers were excellent, but the pork belly sandwich was not enjoyed by the 2 who ordered that. Burgers start at 8 dollars, but that is the norm for Bayfield.

We loved it here - the wait staff were attentive and gracious, and the food was fantastic. I had the whitefish piccata and looooved it! It was served with a breadstick that was delightfully soaked with the juices. The tastes were interesting and fresh - not what you'd expect in most Wisconsin small town restaurants.

We ate here out on the deck over looking the marina. We started out with the beer battered onion rings & a specialty cocktails. Onion rings were good, nothing special. The drinks were a bit pricey ($16.00 for 2 drinks) I ordered the Mac & Cheese Buffalo Chicken which is a penne pasta dish with a creamy blue cheese Buffalo... More

We ate out on their deck overlooking the harbor of Bayfield. It is a great location. Their food was very good and a little pricey but not at all outrageous. Whitefish was excellent. The service was good. I would recommend this to people to have a leisurely meal while watching the activity and boats in the harbor.

I enjoyed the Parmesan crusted whitefish, though the salt could be dialed down a tiny bit. Service and overall ambiance were good.

Every time we are in Bayfield we have dinner at Pier Plaza- everything we have had there was delicious, but we especially like to be there Friday nights for the fresh fish! Delicious!

Had Sharon's Favorite (aka chicken sandwich) which was tasty. I would have it again but may try something else. Homemade chips were crispy and good. Hubby had bison ribs (a special). They were like spare ribs. Tough. Wouldn't have again. I like the atmosphere. Staff was friendly and attentive.

Four of us had lunch, sat outside and watched the boats - great spot! Food was very good - fish Gresh caught each day, homemade chips, and friendly staff. Would absolutely recommend!

Ate here on a Monday evening when many other places in town were closed. The place was very busy & we had to wait for a table. There wasn't any hostess on duty & there were only two wait staff. In spite of this, the two on duty managed to do a good job & be pleasant as well. I... More
