There are only a handful of places to eat in Paradise and Brown's is definitely the best! Always busy. Keep in mind they close once the fresh fish runs out so hours can vary.

I had the broiled whitefish. BEST whitefish I've ever had. Anyone who loves and regularly visits the UP knows cash is king, so don't be surprised that they don't accept cc.

Those above are correct. Call the restaurant before you go. They are not open every day, even in late summer.
