Its a small restaurant with only 4 tables and then bar seats. The surprise is the fantastic menu. My wife had the crab cakes and I had lobster ravioli. Drinks are great and a good beer selection. Portions were large and some of each came home.

I have been to this place several times. Never disappointed in the food. There are no menus but there is a menu board that changes depending on the fresh fish they are able to get. Don't let the look of a "dive bar" fool you. The food is "five star"! My favorite dish is the scallops, the grilled romaine &... More

My friends from Ann Arbor heard about Skaliwags and so I took them there last night. Both are amazing gourmet cooks and LOVED everything we ordered! We started with crispy shrimp, grilled romaine and had Osso Bucco, Scallops and Crab Cakes for our entree. The cheesy grits were excellent - everything prepared to perfection and soooo delicious! Service exceptional!!!!! No... More

We stopped for the second time this weekend and got there at 5:15. Were told it would be a 30 minute wait. Wanted a drink. We had space along the front window. All bar is reserved for dining - which is part of the experience. Were told that we couldn't order a drink because it would get too crowded. We... More

Arrived just in time, about 5:15 and the place filled up... we had front row seats to the kitchen from the bar which was fantastic. No frills atmosphere with character and great menu options. Andy was in the kitchen and he did us right by guiding us to the Barramundi, and we also had the guacamole lobster..both were delicious. Our... More

There aren't a lot of places to eat dinner in Algoma on a Monday night so we stumbled into Skaliwags, a hold-in-the-wall restaurant with great food. A narrow, restaurant with a bar on one side and only about 7 tables that barely seat 2 people, the menu was limited -- mostly seafood and a few beef items -- but what... More

Skaliwags is the best food in door county, but it's not in door county but located in Algoma. Make the trip it is worth it. If you drive along the lake from sturgeon bay it's the best drive as well. The ahi poke was exceptional, the romain boat was the best I have had. Take the 20 minute drive from... More

Some of the best seafood you'll find. Fun atmosphere and staff. You wouldnt expect such amazing things from this place when you look at the building from the outside. I can't wait to go back.

We have been to Skaliwags twice now. Each time was fantastic. The food is outstanding. The service friendly and efficient. I would recommend anyone in the area take a trip to Skaliwags for a great meal. Marshall is the best there is behind the bar and making you feel at home.
