Hubby had a delicious club sandwich and I had Reuben soup, both with sweet potato wedges and horseradish ranch dip. Great service and delicious food.

This place is a good little town restaurant. Their staff was very friendly and we stopped here twice. For dinner we have very good fish and chips and the apple crisp is to die for! We swung in once to get ice cream, excellent flavors. Then we stopped for lunch once. My husband had good wings and I had a... More

Had dinner on a Wednesday evening while visiting Bayfield. They don't take reservations and the seating is limited, but the bar is open to have a drink while waiting for a table. The special was an all you can eat shrimp and it was good - well worth the $12! Our waitress, Mary, was very friendly and attentive (not hovering).... More

It is going to be very crowded after an apostle Islands to her boat gets back. It had excellent fast food like burgers and onion rings. We didn't order any of their entrées so I cannot speak to that.

Their website very clearly states "daily happy hour specials." We walked in and asked about it, hostess as well as bartender had no idea what we were talking about. We left.
