We stopped at the Albatross for a brief lunch on our day trip to Washington Island. The server who took our order was short and somewhat rude. Service was as it says on the window "not fast." The burgers we had were pretty good but...More

"If you want fast, go to Chicago." That's part of the handwritten sign in the order window of the Albatross Drive-In on Wasington Island. The sign tells you not to be in a hurry. And if you want to enjoy the Albatross, you'd best not...More

Right on the corner as you come in to the island. Ample seating with tons of picnic tables. There's a jukebox so you can play some tunes while you wait for your food. Lots of flies was the only negative

My travel partner and I wanted ice cream instead of dinner due to the heat of the day and a late lunch. She had a caramel sundae and I had a hot fudge. Very expensive, especially for soft serve (real ice cream in cones only)....More

We stopped here after seeing it on the Cherry Train and thought it looked like a great place to eat. We were wrong. Average enough food but for an unknown reason, 2 burgers and a French fry took 45 minutes to make. This is July,...More

This burger- the Alby Burger may have been one of the best I've had. Delicious. It's the only fast food option on the island and well worth a visit.

It's a neat little place, but EXPENSIVE. Browsing the menu you would of though you needed to be rich to eat here. $8.50 for a ice cream sundae ???? Really???? We ordered a few sandwiches and 2 French Fries ($53) Not kidding. The food was...More
