This small, quaint tavern, located in the Leelanau Peninsula about 40 minutes north of Traverse City, was packed on this snowy, February Saturdsy night. Seating is limited to approx. 75 people, & every seat was filled. The burgers, cod, & walleye were all delicious, the...More

Classic "Up North" bar with good food. Known for its burgers but the chicken and fried appetizers are great too. Believe it or not they have a very good side salad with excellent homemade dressings. The house peppercorn ranch is my favorite

This was our second off-season visit. It was a December Sunday afternoon and there were a grand total of 3 tables occupied. The service was very good. My wife ordered a burger and I had the Ruebin. We also had a cup of their lobster...More

Serving are generous and the food is average, but the overall experience wonderful. I can see why the locals and visitors love this restaurant. The overall atmosphere is perfect for Up North. Our waitress was very good and everyone was very friendly. We will return...More

We visited Fischer’s as we were told it was a town favorite. It has the potential to be very good. We visited when they were really busy and that might reflect why dinner was subpar. I read reviews on their burger so promptly ordered when...More

Thw chicken dinner was great. A lot there and I took it home and make chicken salad. The fish and chips was okay. Both Mom and my spouse said that they should have gone with the chicjken as well. But the fish was okay.

Reasonable prices, incredibly friendly service. Dark old fashioned interior is exactly what a delightfully throwback restaurant and menu (when have you last seen a place that offers "broasted" chicken) should have. My wife had the walleye which was also very good, but not as good...More

With friends for dinner, had walleye sandwich special. Ok, walleye pieces kinda small, and coleslaw not very creamy or flavorful. Somewhat disappointed compared to previous visit couple years ago. Service ok but nothing to write home about either.

I suppose there’s a technical distinction between “broasted” chicken and “fried” chicken, but I’d have to go to the U.S. Patent Office to figure out what it is. The broasted chicken at Fischer’s is pretty good, although it’s sufficiently greasy that they thoughtfully provide you...More

Really good food, friendly service. Burger was excellent as was soup. Decent beer selection on tap. Dining room can get crowded. Even so food arrived quickly. Reasonable prices for the area.
