Seems like just a bar. Some interesting old things hanging from the ceiling. Lots of wood everywhere. Has a history associated with the movie "Anatomy of a Murder". Don't need to go back.

Had a great stay in Big Bay. One of our stops was the Lumberjack Tavern, scene of the bartenders murder back in the 50s story behind the movie "Anatomy of a Murder". Worth the visit, decent burgers, nice selection of craft beers, interesting place.
