Food was great. We got the walleye sandwich and a pulled pork sandwich. Service was slow, but they were busy! Would definitely return.

We had two wonderful meals (both times for lunch). The food is exceptional and the service is fast and friendly. The bbq was very good, the hamburgers were great, and the fish meals were exceptionally good. Well worth a visit.
