Freshest Fish Around

If this review were for the market itself, it would get an "excellent" rating. We stop in frequently when we're staying at the cabin to buy a filet or two of lake trout, whitefish, or herring. You can't find fresher fish in any store. Sometimes I buy a wrap to take with me for lunch on the drive... read more

We enjoyed the fish fry and the little patio out back. They also have a good selection of locally brewed beer.

We were parched and I was a little hungry, so we stopped in for a beer and I had the seafood chowder. It was delicious and I wish we had stopped to take some of the fresh trout home. The view from the deck again is great! Will be back, and the

We stopped for lunch at the Dockside Fish Marker and we were pleasantly surprised. We were seated on the deck with a gorgeous view of Lake Superior. Service was quick and food was fantastic. Will definitely make a trip back!

We always go to the Dockside for their fried white fish basket, when we are in Grand Marais. We like the outdoor seating overlooking the bay. Their food is good, and service is good. Highly recommend.

We both love walleye and we can rarely find a place that serves good, fresh Walleye at home, so the Dockside Fish Market was a hit with us! Their walleye basket was perfect....4 pieces of great walleye - you taste the freshness of the fish, not an overpowering , heavy batter. Served with some great fries. Our only regret was... More

We split a walleye basket for an afternoon snack. It was very obvious this was fresh fish and they knew how to cook it. Not only was it incredibly delicious and a great value for the price, they also offer gluten free breading so my fiance was able to eat it, something she rarely gets to do! Aside from the... More
