Went to the Happy Hour twice during my last visit to Leelanau County. First time around I enjoyed the famous chicken dinners... the second time I had a burger... with the fries they gave me the "special sauce" to dip them in (per my friends recommendation) - the sauce is amazing!

Two couples - very busy during summer, but worth the wait. The chicken was excellent, as were other selections. Hopping place!

This was a trip to visit family and the old days so I had the fried clams, with a little lemon juice, to remind my of my days as a grade-schooler with HoJo's fried clams. These were meaty and juicy and crisp and I ate all of them with some non-southern (they use sugar) coleslaw and a few fries. Yummy. A biker club came in and most were US Marines and we respect them as such, as bikers and diners knowing where to eat. Not necessarily in that order. It was a great lunch. Please don't take this the wrong way but if I lived there and didn't visit for a weekend, this would be my weekend lunch place, what I lovingly call a "dive bar." It was great! And the atmosphere is captains' chairs and a pool table in the middle. What better atmosphere can there be?

Lived up to the hype! Super waitress told us the specialties and we settled on the broasted chicken & whitefish. Super! With clam appetizer and side dishes, just too full to finish or have dessert. We'll be back when we're in town.

A local resident recommended Fischer's Happy Hour for great food and we had a fine time. This restaurant looks like, and is, a locals' eatery. It is located on M-22 between Leland and Northport. We had a really good lunch - even the picky kids loved their food, which was kindly served quickly. The turkey Rueben was wonderful - especially the toasty, flavorful bread. They are known for their hamburgers, and the condiments come with a stack of sliced onion. We ended up too full for dessert - even for the tempting peppermint ice cream with Sander's hot fudge.

There is a nice deck, the inside is fine, if cozy.

You'll have a good time and meal when you go.
