Food was very good and deserves a 5. Service maybe 2 or 2, leaves a lot to be desired. Waitresses also serve as bartenders, and they were not very welcoming or helpful. The whole staff seemed stretched too thin. If you go, just be prepared...More

I have visited many times over the years. Never disappointed with the food. Can be a wait sometimes. But worth it.

I took my mother here while on vacation. OMG. It was amazing. The deliciousness that comes out that dive bar is unbeatable. Friendly atmosphere. It’s a must go to if your in the area.

Ok, so this is not the Altima Scaliwagsbin Algoma but the new one in Suinaco. Waitress was lovely. Noise level was loud. Food was just ok. Don’t think we’ll be returning.

I have eaten here four or five times over the past five years. The food is incredible, amazing. Milwaukee has a lot of very good, even excellent restaurants (and I've eaten at dozens of them), and a few other Wisconsin cities have their share, but...More

Chef Chris owns a restaurant in Kewaunee, I believe, called Uncorked. He also just opened another Skaliwags in Suamico, which is a suburb of Green Bay. Oh, and I almost forgot! He also has a hamburger place in Algoma... More
