Every summer we are in the upper peninsula for business, and every time we stop at The Gangplank in St. Ignace. The atmosphere (on the front deck under an awning) is great, and the burgers are wonderful! We split the Two Ton Tessey Burger (impossible for my husband and I to eat alone), and it was superbly done!

We were really surprised by how good the appetizers were. We stopped in for an afternoon snack and drink on a beautiful day. Sadly they did not allow us to sit on the edge of the patio with the view, as the server told us they were rotating the seating among the servers. The next couple that walked in, sat... More

Having lunch late in the afternoon, we kinda figured this was a good place because it was still busy. And, we were right! Both the hostess and the waitress treated us like family. Sitting on patio we were able to enjoy the view too. My husband had a burger and I had the fish tacos and both were yummy. We... More

My gyro had loose lamb hamburger instead of slabs- maybe I missed that description on the menu. Husband thought his burger tasted marginal, but Loved the accompanying sauce and cheese, etc. Waitress was excellent. Fun vibe.

We thoroughly enjoyed this little gem! The food was good but this place is about the details and experience. We were able to enjoy outdoor seating even though a rain shower passed through. The staff was amazing. Wasn't a fan of the slaw;) pictures don't do this place justice! Soooooooo glad we found it on trip advisor! It's worth the... More

The food was good. The service was good. It is outside but cover and your not in the sun. It was a neat place to have a nice meal.

Stopped here for dinner after apps at Village Inn and drinks at Mack Grill. Waited about 20 minutes to be seated- the entire restaurant is open air seating and holds 55 people. No drinks while we waited for a table. The food was about a 3 out of 5...Fish Tacos were their big seller and were pretty tasty. The burger... More

Three of us ate here and all agreed, we will be back! Who even takes time to make hand cut fries anymore- they do, and they are great! The whitefish for the tacos and sandwich was delicious and not a hint of grease. The wait staff was very friendly and enthusiastic about the fare also. Imagine that, someone cares about... More

We arrived late in St Ignace over Labor Day and were very hungry. There was no one sitting in the restaurant at that hour but we walked up and to see if they would still serve and they gladly welcomed us in. They were very accommodating and friendly and the food was great!
