Sat outside for a great view of the lake, Madeline Island, and the shore. My burger was perfectly seared on the outside and still tender and juicy on the inside. Great lunch and cocktails!

Not much in terms of restaurants are open after an evening cruise so we stopped in for a late night snack (9pm). Positioned at a table near the bar (minor in the party we couldn't sit at the bar), we were able to catch the Olympics on tv while grabbing a bite to eat. Had nachos and a fish fry.... More

We took the morning tour of the islands and used the 10% discount coupon on the back of the ticket to each lunch. The wait was only a few minutes. There is usually a table in the bar area that you can wait, rather than standing. The tables are on the side and away from the bar area. Food was... More

Went here twice for lunch and ate on the deck overlooking the City Docks in Bayfield. I ordered Fish & Chips and my wife had Sharon's Chicken Sandwich. Both were very good and fresh. Recommended.

Definitely coming back for the fish. They accidentally served me a fish sandwich instead of the fish dinner. The waitress promptly went in the back and brought me out a nice piece of whitefish also Good service even with a minor mixup. Very friendly

Half of the items on their online menu are not available. The waitress basically told us we didnt know what we were talking about when we questioned their menu items. Very rude staff. We felt like no one cared that we were even there. We were there for a big swim meet and needed carbs. All they had to serve... More
