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.

The food at Pier Plaza was affordable and delicious. The drinks were also good. The wait staff and the bartenders were courteous and professional. The restaurant and the bar were clean as well as the restrooms. I would make Pier Plaza a must at our next visit to Bayfield.

Girlfriend ordered the buffalo chicken mac n cheese. Chicken was not marinated or salted or even covered in buffalo sauce, so so bland. Mac n cheese was okay but covered in what I can only assume were grill scrapings. I got the bbq bacon cheeseburger. Somehow this was also ultra flavorless? Also they charge you extra for burger fixins like... More

My fiance and I stopped here on a rainy Thursday to enjoy lunch. We both had the BBQ Bacon Northlander, which was a cheeseburger (your choice of cheese) topped with bacon and BBQ sauce. The sauce was delicious and while the burger was not cooked to order (i.e., medium rare), it was not dry or overdone. We did have to... More

Fresh locally caught trout and whitefish with an incredible view of the harbor and lake. The Friday night fish is especially good; the best in the state The fish is light and tasty not covered with a heavy, oily batter. Well done.

Seriously, the best fried white fish and trout we have ever tasted. We went back for more on Saturday and paid extra because it wasn't the special. AND, the best ice cream in Bayfield! You have to order through the bar. Their Mackinaw island fudge...I'm still dreaming about! Had a cone on Friday and Saturday!

Not a huge menu or a lot of tables, but great staff and delicious AYCE Friday fish, well outside the Wisconsin norm of haddock or cod. Baked potato was al dente, but cole slaw was also great. Probably very crowded in season outside dining is available, but a little too cool on Memorial weekend.
