“Great Local Tavern”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

This place has been around for over 40 years. Nice old bar with local color and flavor. Great burgers, fried chicken, fried clams, homemade pie. Good service and nice people. Be sure to stop on your way to or from Leland!

“Pretty Cool”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

On the road along the way this place was fun. Waited 20 min for a table at dinner and had a burger and a beer. Just a neat place that you want to stop at for a quick bite.

“Decent bar, decent food, so-so prices”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

We had dinner here on our way home last night after being in Northport. The clam chowder had good flavor, but very few clams. The burgers were up to standard, but the wine prices have steadily gone up over the years. I felt that in this kind of a setting, $28 for a bottle of Alamos Malbec is a bit too much. 2 burgers, a bottle of Malbec and a bowl of clam chowder set us back over $50.00! Fischers was O.K., but I believe there are better options, such as Dick's Pour House in Lake Leelanau, about 5 miles to the South.

“a friendly place to grab a burger”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

Stop by and grab a burger and an ice cream puff with the chocolate caramel sauce- what a comfort. This is a fun place to go and warm up after the ice caves or traveling through on 22. This is an authentic Northern Michigan experience. Check it out.
