On a weekday afternoon, it was easy to get in....

I heard this place was really busy during the evening meal time, so I chose a late lunch instead. There is seating outside, but none to be had, so inside it was. The views are wonderful from the deck outside. Parking is hard to come by, but I was very lucky and found a spot a block away. Bathrooms... read more

The chocolate Lava Cake is to die for.. the pies are pretty good too. We had a nice meal there outside so it was great to see the water. The staff was good, the meal was good and plenty of food.

We ate diner there on a Sunday night. Had to wait 10 minutes for a seat, but the town was hopping, as there was an art festival going on, so that is to be expected. We had an excellent meal, I had the whitefish, my wife had the Cobb salad, we both were very happy! Great view, VERY good service.... More

My husband and I recently ate at this restaurant. It was a Friday night. We asked the host for an estimate of how long we would have to wait for a table outside. We were told 20 minutes. Sounded reasonable. So we decided to walk around the little town of bayfield to kill time. We returned within the time frame... More

My whitefish dinner was good. Location was right on the water next to the marina and ferry boats. Service was fine. Cherry with ice cream was a nice treat

We stopped for a late meal after being out and about all day. The food was excellent, including gluten free options at no extra cost. Treated ourselves to homemade blueberry pie a la mode which was absolutely delicious! Would eat here again :) Only reason didn't give 5 stars was the service was very slow - seemed to take a...

I recently had a late Sunday lunch at Pier Plaza in Bayfield. I had taken the Apostle Islands cruise earlier, and this was not my first choice for lunch. However, when I got to the other restaurant I had in mind, they said it would be a 30-40 minute wait for a table. Since it was 2:30 in the afternoon... More

Place was packed with patrons just prior to free concert across the street. With that many people, there was a wait for a table and service was on the slow side. Staff were very friendly and prompt with refills. Food was very tasty. The strawberry chicken salad special was a big hit. Ravioli and the whitefish roulade (Mediterranean) were also... More

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.
