The Halibut was so good it sets the standard from now on! A gentle pineapple sauce on top was just right. Good salad, Caesar salad, Cajun scallops, warm rolls, Creme Brulee. Candice, our server, was great. Wish this restaurant was near where we live.

I went there allone on my way from Moline, IL to Washington Island, WI.
It is and old house, vey charming.
Food was great, and also fresh. Prices were fair enough for the quality offered.
Service is the best, no rush, no invading, but still dedicated and warm.
I can strongly recommend the place.

I had the walleye the first night and the tuna salad the second night. Both perfect. I would have shown up for lobster night but got outvoted. Next time, nothing will stop this Mainer from lobster night!

Used to be the place in Milwaukee for fresh fish, maybe the only place. Now good seafood is available all over the place and their chef has moved on. Really just average and sometimes, doesn't seem freshly made.

Old fashioned restaurant with very good food but is being held back by being way too pricey.

They have maintained the atmosphere that is getting harder to find, very fifties. However it does not have fifties type prices, in fact it doesn’t have 2012 prices, it is way overpriced.

If you do go, you will not be disappointed by the food. We were a party of three, one had walleye, one had sole and one had jumbalaya. The walleye was the best, the sole was very good and the jumbalaya was good. This restaurant specializes in seafood and they do it well.

The service is very good. Very formal and attentive.

If you are not concerned about price and just want good food, this is perfect. It is kind of sad that someone made a really bad decision about the price of menu items.
