Have the perch dinner it was just excellent. The place is typical small bar and resturant in the MI countryside. Service was good and fast enough for what we ordered.

A mainstay of the area for two generations. The owner and staff are always pleasant and helpful. The lunches are high class bar food, the dinners a step up from that. It doesn't try to be fancy, or foodie, it's just good. We eat here many times each year.

We had lunch with a group of 8 and found this restaurant quaint, friendly and great food. The staff was very friendly and the service great. We LOVED the mushrooms, cauliflower and clam appetizers. Several of our group had the soup and raved at how good it was.

A real classic bar and restaurant with lots of pictures of past hunting and fishing glory days to match. Fast, friendly service. We had a group of 7 adults and one infant and the wait staff did a great job seeing to our needs on a Wednesday during peak season at 5:15pm. Although you can get salads and other "healthy"... More

This is a classic "up-north" pub! Food is great and atmosphere perfect. A can't miss place to visit. Service was fast. However, during peak times they have an unorthodox seating system.

Pick your adjective for this local watering hole that's family friendly and has the most consistent food around. Its mostly bar food but the cheeseburgers, broasted chicken and local White Fish are fan favorites. BY FAR the best restaurant in the county and everything you want during summer vacation!

I had the broasted chicken which was good. My wife had the burger which also was good. Nothing spectacular but typical pub food. A bit of a limited menu. The main room has a nice pub atmosphere however we were seated in the back room which has pictures and murals of bums and hobos which was a bit bazaar and... More

Although not a knockout for decor Happy Hour can't be beat for great food, great service and reasonable prices. Enjoyed their famous chicken dinner. Strongly recommend this place!

We try to stop at Fischers at least once during our yearly trip to Leelanau and have never been disappointed in the food or service. The place has the feel of an quirky old-time hangout (which it is), with lots of dark wood paneling and low ceiling tiles. There is a pool table in the middle of the main dining... More
