“Blackened fish!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

We visited on a friday night. Fish was cod or whitefish & your choice of fried or blackened! So nice to have the option of blackened. Came with the typical sides along with beans. Delish. Frank, our bartender, was very fun & quite entertaining. Owner was there as well & working hard to make sure everything ran smooth & people were served promptly. They also had live music, saw a band called "Ditch runners", they were very good! Cocktails were wonderful. Met a lot of different characters, some tourists, some locals. Will be back on my next visit to the north woods!
