“On the boat”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

My wife and I went here for lunch via boat and had an awesome experience! The food was killer, (especially the sashimi tuna appetizer) the staff was very friendly and accommodating, the atmosphere is just what you would want and expect from a waterfront cafe. As a matter of fact, we were so impressed, we are going back for dinner!

“Very Tasty!”
Reviewed May 3, 2014 via mobile

Food was excellent and service was good. I had local caught perch. It was lightly battered and fried. I had wished that there was a bit less grease left on it than there was. Nevertheless, it was very enjoyable. The corn chowder was delightful. The homemade carrot cake is to die for! And the view is pretty even on a cold, windy, gray day.

“awesome!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

We ate there for the 3rd time on Sunday evening. We had a wonderful experience. We asked some questions that the new server didn't know the answers to but she was super helpful and found out the answers for us! We LOVED everything we all ordered!! Even though we were the last table in the restaurant we did not feel like we had to leave. The entire staff was very friendly and helpful. We will be back soon!!! Thanks!!!

“Favorite local place”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Food is very good-Channel Marker is a reliable place to dine-nothing outstanding but worth staying in town for, vs driving 40-50 miles to anything else which is remotely better.
It is especially nice in the summer months when you can sit out on the porch or dockside at the tiki bar.
I am looking forward to warm weather to take advantage of this great local spot!
