Have eaten here several times for lunch and dinner. The "pickled herring" sandwich is actually a delicious club. The actual appetizer of pickled herring is generous and served with crackers and is absolutely yummy! We've also sampled the whitefish sandwich, and the ribs and enjoyed the flavor of both. Nothing fancy but good food. The seating inside the resturant is definitely limited with some high stool tables along the wall which are not comfortable and make you feel you are in the way of traffic-servers. Wish they had more booth space. The additional seating out on the deck stays busy but not always available because of weather, etc.

Great location, nice cozy dining room, decent food. Loved the pickled herring appetizer just because you don't see that every day. Nice patio area to eat outside if its warm enough, great view of the water.

We drove up to Bayfield on a whim while we were staying in Hayward and had forgotten what a neat little town it was. We had been there several years ago and stayed for a couple of days. We're glad we went back! The day we went it was very mild for the end of September so we thought we'd try the Pickled Herring since they had outdoor seating plus you can see the whole harbor from their deck. We each had the fresh white fish sandwich and were not disappointed. It was so good, I ate it without the bun! But the bun was good too. The cole slaw was different but in a good way...had a kick to it. My husband had a cup of their homemade soup and loved it. The waitress was excellent and service was quick. We got there right before a tour boat docked so we didn't have to wait at all for a table. All in all, we were very glad we stopped and would definitely go back.

We ate here for our Anniversary, wasn't busy, which was good. I ordered the BBQ Ribs, and hubby had the Pork Medallion dinner. We could have ordered one dinner and spit it! Seeing we were traveling we couldn't really take what we didn't eat, but I did take what ribs I had left with. Our waitress was excellent. Loved the view.

The Pickled Herring was clean and the wait staff was friendly. The food was very good and reasonably priced. We only had a 15 minute wait which wasn't bad since it was over the dinner hour.
