“Great Friday Night Fish!”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

We arrived in Bayfield on the motorcycles at 9pm. Quickly checked into the motel and hurried to the closest place to eat. The Pier Plaza stopped serving at 9:30; we got there at 9:15 with a large party; but they were very gracious and pleasant. Mary was our waitress, and she was outstanding. The Fried Fish (Trout and Whitefish) All You Can Eat was great. Light crumb breading, excellent coleslaw and large salads. Will definitely eat there again when in Bayfield.

“Great view, average food”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

Pier Plaza has changed it's interior and menu since the last time we ate here. We used to like the "hometown" menu with it's variety of pasta and sandwiches. The new menu and atmosphere is more "pub-like." The interior is very nice but the menu isn't really an improvement over the old place. The chicken sandwich I had was good but not outstanding. The prices were about the same as other places in Bayfield. The view of the harbor is almost worth the visit, though.

“Great fish!”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

We had the fish fry and it was great! It was all you can eat for $12.95. The staff were prompt and friendly. We dined on the outside deck overlooking the lake.

The sweet potato fries were the best I ever had. Everything else was solid and the view is lovely. Whitney the srver was very nice and helpful. Clean bathrooms too.

“If you are a fan of fresh, Lake Superior Whitefish, this is the place!”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

This restaurant is right across from the public dock and near the ferry(to La Pointe) dock. It has outside dinner on the porch. I go there a couple times per summer(300 mile round trip) for the Whitefish Sandwich. Today, the special was large chunks of Whitefish and Lake Trout served with slaw and kettle chips and it was very tasty! It has a full bar, or if you are on a motorcycle as I was, refillable coke products, iced tea and lemonade. It also has has rooms available with porches, if you want to spend the nite. This place is well worth the trip for a wide variety of burgers and other sandwiches and soups for lunch. I recommend it highly!
