Great atmosphere with inside or outside seating options. Comfortable seating. Cocktails were amazing-they did not skimp on their mix! Meal was tasty and of course a tasty cherry pie with really great ice cream.

this fish sandwich was one of the best I've ever had. The perch pike popcorn appetizer also top notch. The fish here get my highest rating. Too bad the wait staff was not more friendly and outgoing. We sat outdoors in patio so could not...see interior...afraid the waitress might bit my head off for trespassing. But that fish more than made up for it.More

Sutton Bay is a charming lakeside town, and this restaurant is a wonderful fit. Delicious food, looking onto the charming high street (when sitting outside), and a delightful and attentive staff all combine to make this a wonderful stop.

Delicious food, great beer, wonderful waitress, perfect weather. Chicken quesadilla and avocado chicken wrap are worth coming back for.

A co-worker & I stopped for lunch this week (from out-of town). The food was delicious! Our waiter was top notch too! My co-worker had the chicken quesadilla (she gave it 5-stars) and I had the fried whitefish/FF special. I’m a fish-snob and only like...very fresh fish, finding that any more is difficult. Here, it was fabulous! I could honestly rave about the tarter sauce too (so dilly & good)! Our waitress was attentive, super kind and helpful. I’m excited to share this “gem” with my family someday when we can make it back. I love a bar that has top-not h food!!More

Was here two years ago as well. Food was good. Staff was ok. Drinks were nothing to write home about this go around. I would still go back, hoping to find this this trip was the outlier.

Average at best. Lots of pre-packaged food just heated up. We ordered two burgers at different temps and they came out the same. No seasoning. Service not very efficient or attentive. Fries were hand cut but cold. Dirt under the table. Fish special used frozen...fish and was way over-cooked and overpriced. There aren't many good choices for decent casual/bar food in the area. But try Fisher's Happy Hour or the Cove over this place. For good food, try The Wren in Suttons Bay, although it is pricey. For Farm to Table try Farm Club.More

We enjoyed the codfish dinner ! The location is right on the main drag in the middle of town. Brooke H provided us with outstanding 5-star service and made a good meal a real pleasure to experience. The dining room booth we had was very...wobbly pointing to the need to fix a few details to make the place even better. It is a place we would return to. Thanks again, Brooke!More

Service was super fast and friendly. Warm, pub-like atmosphere. The kind of place you want to spend time. Lots of screens around showing sports. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Seating indoor and outdoor with heaters. Would be great to add a non-fried fish option...to the menu.More

Our party of six (3 couples) visited while staying in Suttons Bay and we enjoyed the atmosphere, food, and drinks. We mostly had beer and they had a wide variety, but my wife ordered a mixed drink she loved. We ordered several different types of...burgers, the salmon, fish and chips, and Weinerschnitzel which was an Octoberfest special. The food was good overall. The only thing that was odd was that the Weinerschnitzel was not breaded and fried. We would probably return when in Suttons Bay again!More

Very good food, perch was tremendous and burger delicious. Portions were great and we have never seen perch filets so large. Even the coleslaw and fries were fantastic. Service was very good - Devin was friendly and helpful!
