Very popular in the UP and reservations are accepted. A great choice of beers and wine. The service was outstanding. Two of us brisket which was a bit over cooked. There is one choice of sauce offered with the barbecue. The sides were generous .

Great smoked & grilled meats. Service was good. Everything on the menu seems pretty heavy. A refresh of the menu to accommodate lighter eaters would be a welcome change.

Had a lovely evening out here with friends. It is a small restaurant, and very popular with locals, so reservations are a must. Service was great, and all the dishes we tried were quite good.

I normally love this restaurant and frequented it with my friends during my time as a student at Michigan Tech. However, after the way my family and I were treated on our last visit, I'm not sure that I will be coming back. My mother...More

My wife and I were cleaning up the camp for the summer. We decided to head up the north shore for dinner. Having been to Fitzgerald's before to be told there was a 2 hour wait and left gave it one last chance. I walked...More
