We went on a Thursday evening - 3 couples - no reservations were needed - we had great food and service. Highly recommend the peel 'n eat shrimp . So very flavorful! The white fish and steaks were delicious too!

This is a very pleasant place for lunch. The walls inside are covered with birchbark, which is quite attractive. The waiter was nice, but he needed more help and was not experienced to know ow to deal with the large number of tables.

Second time we've been here. These guys offer the best fried perch I've ever had and the best beer battered fries! Seating inside or out, the decor is done in birch bark and has a north woodsy feel. Friendly staff. Awesome Bloody Marys!

This off the regular path restaurant offers you the traditional Great Lake speciality of whitefish and perch and/ or the chef has a unique twist on flat breads! We tried the pecan crusted chicken that was nice

Leery of the bad reviews but still wanting to try it because both the menu and kitschy interior were appealing, my family had dinner here. We didn't experience the rude and slow service that nearly everyone mentioned; in fact the service was quick and friendly....More

Stopped here for lunch, because the other spots were very busy. (mmm, first clue?) The wait was ridiculously long and then the food was very sub par. Fish tacos and the tortillas were dry and nasty. Taco iIngredients not too bad but pretty tasteless, and...More

We were there in October 2015. Food was very good although pricey. Our complaint was the service. It was as if staff enjoyed working together more than actually working. Party atmosphere with little service. Very... More
