pickled herring

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

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

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
