We would not have known about this place if not for the reviews. Based solely on them we gave this place a chance and we were not disappointed. Don't come for the décor. Come for the food. We had the whitefish and cod baskets and were totally satisfied. There are other things on the menu besides seafood. Seemed like most of the couples were locals. The atmosphere was friendly and the staff seemed to welcome our business. There are several booths/tables and they seemed to do a considerable "take-out" business too.

We'll give them another visit when we return.

OMG, my friends only allow themselves one visit a week, it's addictive! The best, best best. In a shopping mall, near a great bread shop. Unpretentious. Yummy.

Had the variety basket; the cod was good, the perch was great and the whitefish was Excellent with a capital "E!" That batter was crispy and the whitefish just melted in your mouth. Good hushuppies, fries, and slaw also.

Location is a strip mall, but was pretty quiet in the evening and sitting outside was great while we devoured our meal.

Don't overlook this little small fish joint in a strip mall. The whitefish and cod were both excellent and I loved the coleslaw. Worth a visit, especially for lunch.

Loved the perch and white fish. It was cooked perfect and the flavor incredible. The best tarter sauce I have ever eaten. Homemade and would love the recipe! The cod was just good not excellant. The other fish definately overshadowed it. This place is a must when in Petoskey.
