“Excellent fish”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

We had bought fresh fish here on previous trips but had never eaten at the restaurant behind the market. The smoked chowder was flavorful and really good on a cold day. The whitefish baskets were really good and the whitefish was crisp and flavorful. The seating area was warm on the cold day we were there and the servers were friendly. It might not be the Waldorf Astoria but the food is very flavorful and good.

“Great little outdoor fish market”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

We eat here all the time the menu is limited but if you like whitefish they have some really good fried or broiled fish baskets, fish tacos just to name a few. It's all outside seating and under cover. Enjoy!!!

“Amazing”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

If you can catch their fish fresh out of the smoker, you're in for a real treat. If not, go have a bite to eat at their restaurant run by a French Culinary Institute-trained chef and you will not be disappointed. Be sure to grab some fresh fish to go for dinner later!

“Fresh fish and local color!”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Simple fresh, local food, prepared well for take-away or outside eating. The whitefish dinner is superb and I liked the sweet potato casserole, too!

“A Local Favorite”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

Peterson's has been around for years selling fresh fish to the community. Recently, they opened a roadside restaurant that is absolutely one of the best places for a quick meal in the entire UP. If you stop, make sure to go into the fish market located next to the restaurant and take home some of their fresh smoked fish...and definitely ask for the smoked fish sausage!
