We took the S.S. Badger from Ludington to Manitowoc and wanted a nice lunch before heading home from vacation. We both ordered the perch since it was a Friday special. Absolutely delicious!! We of course ordered the double order.....way too much for even my husband....but it was so good that we ate as much as we possibly could. Wish we... More

Very limited seating....and the music was of a volume at 3:00 pm that there was no way to have a conversation

I don't eat here much, I come for the live music, it's not every night, but there always bringing in out of town talent and supporting local talent. Can't wait till September '16, there hosting Lakeshore Independent Music Festivals. It's a small bar in gets crowed quickly when there's talented artist. Sometimes they have bands in the side parking lot.... More

We came for the Friday night fish fry. The perch was good, and there was a lot of it. They only gave us one little container of tartar sauce for 4 butterflies and then charged extra for one more. Whatever. Fries and cole slaw were ok, not great. Service was prompt but the bartenders could smile a little more. Decent... More

Three of us stopped for a drink and sat at the bar. We had such a good time visiting with the owner and the locals that we stayed about 2 & 1/2 hours. We had a few additional drinks and tried their chicken wings, which were very good. We will definitely stop again when in town.

Excellent food and service, reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend! We are from out of town and this was rated 4th best 0lace to eat in Manitowoc. We would rate it that or better.

Bar is well stocked with a good variety of beer including many favorites on tap. Perch Fry on Friday's is the best I've eaten in Manitowoc area. Large fillets, tasty rye bread, coleslaw is good. I prefer their potato salad over the french fries, but their fries are very good also.

I was with a bunch of women and I was the designated driver so I was not drinking. I asked for a glass of water and the owner looked at me and said " I am not here to serve water". In my 30 years in going into a bar I have never heard that from a bartender ! Sad.... More
