Tried this new restaurant for lunch during our last visit to Algoma. The creative menu made it hard to decided what to order. Got the sweet potatoe fries as a side. Best we ever had! Hand cut, lightly breaded. The service was wonderful. The owner even brought out the the Chef so we could compliment her. We definitely will be... More

This is our third time eating here and it never disappoints. I had the New Orleans and my wife had crab cakes. We both shared a crispy shrimp appetizer. All of the food was excellent. Service is casual and so is the decor but that works for me. The only negative is the comfort of the chairs and stools but... More

You know the food is great when all you do during your meal is talk about the food. My wife and I went out to eat so we could discuss an upcoming trip. We never talked about our trip, instead we talked about how good our meal was. My wife is a connoisseur of scallops. Chef stopped by the table... More

Have been going to Skalliwags for years. Still one of my favorite places for an intriguing meal! Love the scallops. Always done to perfection!! The grilled romain and crispy shrimp are must for appetizers! Marshall is a fun bartender! Only improvement would be prices to be listed so your not in for a big surprise at the end of night....

This is a quaint little place and from the exterior you would not believe the gourmet food made inside. I've never had such a flavorful meal. I would've never thought it would be the place where I would try caviar for the first time and I enjoyed it. If you have a very special occasion and you want to celebrate... More

Stopped at Skaliwag's last night on the advice of the receptionist at the motel where I stayed. It is billed as "5 Star Food in a Dive Bar." Had I not received the recommendation, I would have driven past the place. Glad I didn't. A fairly extensive menu was written on the chalkboard. Lots of seafood, beef, lamb and past... More

The food here is very good. I'm limiting to 4 stars because it doesn't have the elegant ambiance and fawning wait staff you'd like to see in a five star place. Of course, it doesn't try to do that as it is basically a bar with a Florida transplant chef who really knows how to grill fish. Order the fish.

What a delight. The chef cooks nearby so you can watch his magic and magic it is. The menu is created daily and written on a chalk board. It features fresh fish and seafood as well as red meat. This is a bar, but don't expect burgers and chips. The service is friendly, and this is truly a hidden gem.

5 Star food and service in what some would call a "hole in the wall" location. I would call it relaxed, unique, and very comfortable! We were immediately greeted upon our arrival and chose to sit at the bar, you will find the days menu listed in the 2 chalk boards where you will find a variety of seafood, beef,... More
