The spare ribs were delicious. We also had Poutine, very tasty. They are fresh every day at 4PM according to the menu. We got a full rack which was all two people could eat. We overheard about half an hour later the waitress telling someone...More

We tried to stop on a Friday - it was packed and little hope of getting a table so we made a reservation for Tuesday which worked out well. The service was good and so was the food. I got the pot pie with pulled...More

Very popular in the UP and reservations are accepted. A great choice of beers and wine. The service was outstanding. Two of us brisket which was a bit over cooked. There is one choice of sauce offered with the barbecue. The sides were generous .

Great smoked & grilled meats. Service was good. Everything on the menu seems pretty heavy. A refresh of the menu to accommodate lighter eaters would be a welcome change.

This was our second visit to Fitzgerald's and the second time was as good as the first. The food was outstanding, the beer selection was one of the best I've seen, and the view was great. We are already planning on Fitzgerald's on our next...More

Has to be the absolute best restaurant in all of the UP. It's the only thing like it anywhere in the area. Awesome food, Brussel Sprout salad will always be remembered! Also, it has the best craft beer selection anywhere. I about fell out of...More

This is a somewhat rustic dining room right on the water's edge with plenty of windows to see the sun go down (eventually). Warm, comfortable and inviting this restaurant with a bar specializing in whiskeys has a menu beyond just the barbecue for which they're...More
