My first visit to Marquette was Saturday night (first visit to the Upper Peninsula!) I was thinking: North Pole/limited dining options! However, the quaint city of Marquette really surprised me and I was very happy to dine at Elizabeth's Chop House. Sophisticated decor and ambiance, extremely polite staff. My server, Ethan was very professional and welcoming. Ethan brought out a basket of assorted breads and I wanted to order an appetizer. Skeptical of getting fresh oysters in the UP, I nevertheless ordered my favorite: Oysters Rockefeller. They were bland, tasting of grilled oysters with spinach and mixed with....was that melted American cheese? For dinner, I selected one of the two whitefish entrees, since I was right on the shoreline of Lake Superior. The waiter explained the fish is fresh caught and literally pointed across the street to Thilly's Fish Market where the fish is bought. Unfortunately, the "cedar plank whitefish" ($29) upon which the fish was grilled, overpowered the fish with a strong smokey wood taste. The fresh green garlic spinach side saved the day. Next time, I will try the regular grilled whitefish. My friend ordered the 20oz (wow!) ribeye ($42) and it was truly delicious. I couldn't have cooked a better ribeye on my own grill. For wine, they have a nice selection of wines and I had a glass of Cline Viognier ($10) followed by a Penfold Shiraz,($7.50) both glasses were fresh and delicious. For fine dning in Marquette, try Elizabeth's Chop House.
