We loved the food and the view! Had the fish livers as an app, then the clam chowder, whitefish, and perch. All were cooked to perfection. Our service was great as well.

We ordered the Prime rib/ salad/baked potato and the broiled walleye. Both were very good ! The waitress-Michele was very patient, friendly, and helpful!!! The place was not fancy but roomy and comfortable. Would definitely recommend.

My husband and i stopped in for lunch. We both ordered clam chowder and fish and chips. Everything was delicious! Our table was on the water; the service was friendly. This is one of the better restaurants in st. Ignace in our opinion.
