“Nice Surprise”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

We were not sure what to expect. We randomly picked Tycoons for a place for dinner on a Friday night. It was really an excellent experience. My wife had the North Woods Maple salad and she said it was fantastic (and gluten free). The Fish and chips were also excellent. Price and service were also very good. They have a decent beer selection, really enjoyed the nut brown ale

“Big disappointment”
Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

I chose Tycoons for a valentines day lunch with my hubby. It was so disappointing. Reasons include: the place needs a good cleaning-- the glass was streaked with dirt; the menu has permanently printed on it "ask your server about our monthly laborers special". When I asked what the special was, the waitress replied "we don't have one". That is so unreal - anything can be a special people! Why put it on your menu if you aren't going to bother naming one? My husband was sipping his diet coke at the end of the meal and apparently the waitress decided it was time for us to go so she cleared the glass before he was done. I ordered the lunch size portion of the smoked fish salad ($8.95) and it was no more than 1 cup of lettuce with about 2 tablespoons of fish on it and 1/2 piece of pita. My husband ordered a "flaked" whitefish croissant, which was a mayo overloaded fish salad on a ciabatta roll. Can they not tell the difference between a croissant and a ciabatta? This place had the potential to be decent but we won't be giving it another chance. This was our second visit and the first time we went we ordered fish and chips and the fish was so over-battered that you couldn't even taste the fish.
