“It's fine, nothing special.”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

As someone else said, this place could be so much nicer. All some one would have to do is pay attention to detail.

We ate here on a Thursday evening. My wife ordered the Whitefish broiled, I had it deep fried. There were two pieces in each dinner; we swapped a piece, so we each had one of each. I was expecting better. I didn't care for the fried fish much (which would normally be my preference.) the broiled was better. The coating on the fried piece was tasteless to me. A generous portion of very good tasting french fries accompanied, along with a dill pickle.

The atmosphere was fine; a sports bar, with a nice deck overlooking the lake that was was very nice. We enjoyed eating outside. The Service was fine. You order at the bar. We had to bus our table outside in order to sit down.

Next time on the Island we'll try somewhere else probably.

“Good spot for lunch”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

While the service can get a little sketchy when it's crowded, the Beach Club is a good spot for lunch on the island if you're looking for tasty fare at a reasonable price. The fish tacos, made with local lake fish, are especially good, as are the french fries. The bartenders are always friendly and usually do a good job keeping up with the crowds. Outdoor seating is good and if you're on the lake side you can watch the ferry arrive and depart - and they have a dock if you're coming via your own boat.

“really nice”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Really nice place. The food was appealing and tasty. The atmosphere is fresh and inviting. The view of the water is a plus. Didn't eat on the patios, but they both looked very nice. The fish chowder had pieces of fish all the way to the last spoon full...very good! Portions were plentiful.

“Interesting burgers with unbeatable view”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Burgers were good, interesting toppings like crab and avocado and basil and mozz. Good fries and chips with seasoned sour cream. Open and airy, walked out to the water. Simple but tasty island lunch.

“Eat here every time we're on the island”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

An island staple, we stop in every tome we visit Madeline. Come for the great view either inside looking out at the lake or try either of the outdoor areas (street-side with the fireplace or lakeside).

Food is good especially the fish fry (trout or whitefish).

Great spot to people watch while you wait for your food.
