The building was beautiful and historic but the food could have used some improvement. I had a fish sandwich which was ok but my fiance had the walleye and it was very very small. Its surprising that a place being so close to Superior would...More

The server's were pleasant. Very quiet but busy enough to know people were there.. tasty food but had a sugary flavor with decent prices for the atmosphere. Would probably go back.

Decent food, but definitely not as good as the downtown Blackwater location. We had steak and mushrooms--with extra portabellos on the side. The mushrooms were undercooked. Our drinks were watery. The bourbon bites were good enough, but nothing special. Not particularly tender or flavorful.
