I have been to this restaurant twice with friends and have been blown away both times. The first time I had the calamari appetizer, crab legs entree, and creme brulee for dessert. AMAZING. This visit they didn't have crablegs, but we had the scallops and they were perfect! Also had the calamari again and creme brulee. Friends with us tried other desserts and appetizers and everyone was extremely pleased. The staff has been very friendly and welcoming both times.

Okay, it's actually five miles from the sea... And it's also known by another name... "The Fish." But once you get over the disconnect of a roadhouse specializing in seafood, you're in for a treat. As expected from a restaurant called "The Fish," seafood dominates the menu, and includes walleye, lake perch, trempura shrimp, calamari and sandwich and appetizer variations on these themes. Yes, there is a steak on the simple menu, but stick with the seafood. You won't be sorry. My favorites are the walleye almondine and the tempura shrimp. The fried lake perch is also pretty tasty. Dinners come with a choice of two salads, house and ceasar -- both above average -- or a New England clam chowder that is also very good. The wine list is unremarkable, but adequate, and the prices for food and wines are refreshingly reasonable. I should also add that the decor is an attractive departure from the institutional look of many of the area's establishments. In a region crowded with seafood restaurant options and restaurants serving ubiquitous whitefish and perch entrees, this is one of the better choices.
