If you're looking for a place with a harbor view this is it. Sat on the balcony that looks out on Lake Superior. Bloody Mary's are awesome. Good selection of beers. A nice place to spend time on a sunny afternoon.

My wife and I split an appetizer and a sandwich. Both were very good but the star was without a doubt the jalapeno poppers quesadilla. It was phenomenal. The staff was very friendly and made us feel welcome.

We did not eat here so I can't review the food but the upstairs terrace with live music was great. Very much enjoyed meeting a friend here and the three of us had a great time drinking beer and laughing.

Family with kids enjoyed a super lunch. Fresh food, great salads, loved the fish sandwich and the onion soup was delicious and a great presentation. Lots of craft beers and they offer a "flight" for tasting!

I like the fact that they have a big menu! Whether you want something little or something small, they have a lot of options! My husband and I especially like the spicy dry rub wings, they are absolutely delicious. They never disappoint us and I love how fresh all the ingredients are! Another plus is being able to sit in...

You can get a nice view of the harbor from the window seats on the main floor and some of the tables on the upper deck. The covered area of the upper deck gets pretty noisy when it's full and it's hard to carry on a conversation. Our son enjoyed several micro-brew beer choices and we sample a couple different...

Stopped in for a quick bite & a beverage. Beer was great. Food good. Service was excellent. Nice view of the harbor while having lunch. Not crowded & music appropriate. We definitely will go again.

We've been coming here for the last ten years. My favorite restaurant in the state. I try something new each year. This time it was the muffuletta sandwich. It was fantastic. The northern exposure ipa is great as well. So great, you can't get a growler. Only bummer. The mussels are always on point. Eat there and leave happy.

Thank Eric E
