Outstanding Lunch

Nic & I started off our meal with a cup each of the walleye cheeks chowder. It was wonderfully creamy and full of chunks of vegetables and walleye. The veggie wrap and deep fried cheese curds were good, but paled in comparison to the whitefish basket. The fish was steamy hot, with a thin crisp... read more

I had the Walleye basket with sweet potato tots. The fish was good but not fantastic. The tater tots are just a frozen kind. The service was great.

I had the salmon wrap with fresh veggies and I was pleasantly surprised it was fantastic. They offer several varieties of fish and chips and that was good too. Ate out on the back deck with a view of the lake. Get there early (11am)!!!!! Place fills up fast. Took home some smoke fish (salmon and whitefish), so bring your... More

We ate here as it was recommended. The service is good, the fish is really fresh, and the price is reasonable. Nothing fancy but really good.

Wow - what a pleasant surprise to walk in and have such nice food and view from the back deck. The walleye was excellent, lightly breaded and delicious - plus lots of other deli and fish choices. Nice place right on the main drag going into town.

Stop into this small market and order the Fish and Chips basket. You can order to go or eat at one of the small tables on the back deck or along the front sidewalk. Excellent options to order Herring (fresh), Walleye, Whitefish and more... Servings are generous and the flavor is wonderful. No deep fat fry taste here! Most people... More

We sat at the tables in the front of the restaurant with our dog and ordered the fried walleye and fried whitefish dinners. Both were excellent! This was the best fried fish we've had in quite some time. The walleye had more flavor, but the whitefish was meatier. The fries and onion rings were pretty average, however.

The fried white fish is excellent. The patio dining out back overlooks the water. This is nothing fancy but clean and a good value. The smoked herring we got to go was excellent! We enjoyed it so much we stopped on our way back on our road trip.

Had 3 fish dinners, cup of soup and it was pretty good. The smoked whitefish we took to go was amazing! For a fish dinner I'd rather go next door. It is cheaper than next door but still good.
