Popular place to eat in Monroe. The food and service is good. This and Pete's Garage are the two best places in Monroe to eat.

Friday lunch was very nice. Seated immediately. Service was great but a little slow. Husband wasn't impressed with Walleye but my seafood pasta was great.

First, I really like the outside deck. It doesn't have a great view, but it is comfortable and well shaded. The food is good. I had the perch last time I was there, and it was a good meal. However, it's not quite as good as Angelo's or Joe's French Italian. We have also recently attended a couple of catered... More

Walked in, the hostess was welcoming, I sat at the bar and had a pretty good perch diner, no Guinness :( so I had a lager. The waitress was friendly and prompt, while I was there a local band started to play, they sounded good and not too loud so you could still talk, nice. If your in town, I... More

Asked to sit in quietest area as there was live music tonight, but it was so loud we couldn't hear each other across the table! LONG wait for server to even arrive & RIDICULOUSLY long wait for simple entrees: a salad and fish & chips. There was a couple next to us who finished eating & left... A little later,... More

food seemed well prepared and presentation was good. Service was prompt and professional. We went on a Saturday evening, they had a musician playing which was nice. They have seating outside which also looked nice. Atmosphere was casual and right across from a marina. Over all we had a nice dinner.

Good food, especially the mussels, fried bologna sandwich and burgers. Great bar with lots of good beers on tap. Very cool with nautical decor also.

Following the recommendation of the ladies at the MI Welcome Center, we had lunch at Harbor Inn. What a great suggestion! Four adults in our party and everyone raved about their food . . . from the yellow perch tacos, to the walleye, and not to forget the white asparagus ... it was all good. At the waitresses suggestion my... More
