Nice place for a romantic dinner with relaxing atmosphere, great food, great service and beatiful views over the bay! White fish on the rock,l and tuna steak we had were just excellent! Restaurant is actually located in Gills Rock on HWY 42 so don't forget the windy road before or after the restaurant, it's just 3 minutes away towards Northport and is a greate attraction.

For dinner it was a long (hour+) wait. The restaurant overlooks Lake Michigan so we enjoyed the spectacular sunset while we waited. Once we got in, the service was excellent and efficient. Wonderful views of the Lake and great atmosphere. The bread and salad were excellent. I had the Shrimp Scampi Rockefeller. It is no where close to typical shrimp scampi. It was an outstanding blend of angel hair pasta, parmesan cheese, tomatoes, and other ingredients that gave it an almost fruity flavor. My wife had the pecan-encrusted walleye with Asian dipping sauce. It too was outstanding. We finished with the sawdust pie which was rich but wonderful. This restaurant is not to be missed.

Get here early or make a reservation!

This is not a big place and it is quite crowded due to excellent view and food.

Our group ate a variety of things, mainly fish or dinner salads. Everyone loved their food and we had no room for dessert!

The service was good if not great.

A couple of people complained about the wine selection, so if that is a concern then you might want to reconsider. As a non-drinker, I had no complaints with my lemonade. :-)

They have the best white fish chowder. Definitely very filling. We also enjoyed Wisconsin cheese curds as an appetizer which were really good. The BLT was ok. Nothing too special unlike the chowder.

Today was a cold, windy, and rainy day so hot soup sounded good. After looking over the menu we ended up having much more than soup!! The New England Butternut Bisque was tasty and the White Fish Chowder was very good. We also enjoyed the Lake Michigan White Fish Basket with fries; Roasted BBQ Pork sandwich with onion rings, piled high with tender meat; and the Island Clipper which included a cup of soup and half of a grilled Reuben sandwich which was tasty but had very little meat. The desserts were calling us, so we all indulged in the following which were delicious:
Salted Caramel Vanilla Crunch Cake, Cherry Pie, and Sawdust Pie with Butter Rum Sauce....similar to Pecan Pie but it had coconut in it. We left with full tummies and a smile on our faces.
