We had been here for lunch a couple of years ago during the summer and enjoyed the deck out back facing the lake. We determined that we wanted to go back and we did this last weekend for the Friday fish fry. Choice of fish including perch which I had. Sides were potato salad and coleslaw. Good and inexpensive drinks... More

Arrived at 5:00 p.m. and we were seated immediately. She had the haddock and I had the perch. Hers was very good and mine was excellent with light breading on both. French fries were o.k. The cole slaw did not appear to be homemade. A solid 4 stars.

Ordered the perch fish fry. It was great! Good sampling of beers on tap. Cheese curds are delicious! Great local bar. Ask to play the dice game!

We enjoy coming to the Moondance (off-season, because they are so busy in the Summer) for their perch plate. It has never been disappointing. I absolutely love the Hostess and we have always had friendly, attentive servers. I would recommend this place.

Earlier this summer, someone recommended Moondance to us for Fish Fry. We knew we'd have to go early so we got there about 4:30. No waiting at that time, but there was a line when we left about 6:00. The dining room is fairly small, but the tables are not so close that you're right on top of the next... More

They have one of the best fish frys in the area! Its not too large of a place so you need to come by 5:00 or after 7:30 if you don't want to wait for a table. Good sized portions at reasonable prices.

We love this place. However, if you come on a Friday night, be prepared for a crowd & a wait, it's also really loud. However, food & service (most of the time) is worth the wait. Love the outside eating area overlooking the lake.

There is outdoor seating facing the lake, which always raises my happiness level when eating out in the north woods in the summer. They have a good sized menu hitting the mid low to mid price range. It is pretty typical fare for this area, not terribly creative or inventive, but works. Everyone loves their fish fries.
