My husband and I enjoyed dinning there. The gentleman that seated us (possibly the owner/manager) apologized in advance that they were busy and short staffed. However, our server promptly took our order and our delicious food arrived in a timely manner. After dinner, we enjoyed...More

I guess our waitress was having a bad day. Rude and not friendly at all. Won't be coming back. Nice location on the waterfront but shame about the waitress. Food over priced too in my opinion.

A very expensive establishment possibly due to the location. Food was fresh (Walleye) and service was reasonable. Salad initially looked good but ultimately was disappointing as only lettuce beneath the top dressing of tomatoe, onion and cucumber. Would I visit again, NO as I have...More

Food was good, our family had everything from steak to crawfish to grilled cheese and not one of us had a complaint about any of it. Prices were decent and the restaurant has a very friendly feel. Staff treated us very well also. Great location.

We were slightly disappointed - no kids menu. My daughter couldn't try the soup before ordering it. No "al a carte" items so the kids couldn't order fries on the side. The food was good though, I loved the stuffed chicken!

Very good food, the prices were about average especially if you are ordering perch. Loved sitting out by the water.

The service has improved a little since out last visit, the food wasnt bad, the only saving grace is the location, right on the water so it sort of makes for the length of time to get food. Just dont go real hungry and enjoy...More

Located on the wharf, This restaurant is very nice with good outdoor seating. A short walk to the downtown area, this restaurant serves a variety menu with good fish and delicious salads,. I had the grilled salmon salad which was very fresh and good.
