Gazpacho, watermelon / blueberry salad, bacon cheeseburger (split between us), key lime tartlet. It was so incredibly good, and served through the friendliest window ever! Thanks Chris and crew!!

Always delicious, always local, always quality food and experience. Out of all the options on Madeline Island, Cafe Seiche is the best place to go for dinner. Support local! And if it's on the menu you MUST try the Key Lime Tart.

Great restaurant with an innovative menu and fresh ingredients. Service is good but occasionally on the slow side. Sit back, have a glass of wine and enjoy the experience.

The food is amazing - we had a roast beef sandwich and coffee cake. The best vodka lemonade EVER! Watermelon lemonade but not too tart and syrup-y.

I ordered the whitefish special and it was delicious!!! I should have eaten there again on my trip. The only bad part is the mixed drinks were not good. Tasted like all alcohol. Stick with the wine or beer!

I can't say enough about Seiche. I have loved this restaurant since it was Lotta's. Chris Wolf, the chef, is one amazing creator of the best food on the island. The beef tenderloin is quite possibly the best steak in the world. All the food...is made per order. Very little is pre made except the amazing desserts. Fish fresh from the lake, and always a vegan option that is also to die for. Do not miss this place when you come to the island!More

Not too many options for a vegetarian/vegan on Madeline Island, but Cafe Seche had a very tasty option to eat. Service was good as we visited early in the season. My meal was great and my fussy mother enjoyed hers as well.

Went to Madeline Island on the ferry w/2 girlfriends while we were staying in the Bayfield yurt mid-week in August. Arrived late evening, but in time for last seating inside cozy Cafe Seiche where we enjoyed the warm ambiance, delightful server and music, terrific wine...and dinner! A perfect fit for our summer catch up evening 😊More

My wife, daughter, and I enjoyed dinner here during labor day weekend. It was very busy, so service was slow. However, the food and atmosphere was great.
