The food was very good and the service was excellent. Prime rib was flavorful and well prepared. Garlic toast was excellent. Salad bar could use a little work, some salads looked old. Pie made from scratch and very good. If you go here I don't think you'll be disappointed.

I've eaten at the Char House many times and don't think that I've ever been disappointed. Great food with lots to choose from. I've had many items and often have a "go to" item I frequently get at each restaurant I like. The Char House makes that difficult because there are so many things I like there!

I've been to this restaurant several times and it has never disappointed me! Great food, reasonable prices, and large portion sizes. The whitefish and wet burrito are two of my favorites!

Our hosts had told us about Deuce's and so we too them for dinner, to thank them for all they'd done for us. The young lady who served us was friendly and pleasant. The food was promptly served, piping hot and well cooked. We all had the Queens (8oz) Prime Rib, and each serving was perfectly prepared. The only down... More

I had the Parmesan Crusted Whitefish and it was delicious. The portion was huge! The salad bar comes with the meal. You can choose 1 side with the meal. The waitress was friendly and the food was served hot. Those who ordered fish for their dinner were very pleased. The one person who ordered a steak said it didn't taste... More

WE are always looking for a place with fresh fish. Duece's was a surprise from the start. Salad bar was fresh and plenty of selection. Our perch not only had the skin still on they were still attached! Walleye was great except for some bones left in. Everyone was pleasant from the greeting. Seems like a local spot to dine.... More

We ate here last week with my granddaughter and daughter-in-law. We try to stop in at least once every month or two. The salad bar is always fresh and the garlic toast is warm and flavorful. The cheese spread and liver pate that comes with it is just enough to satisfy before dinner arrives. Every meal we have had there... More

Casual dining in a nautical themed atmosphere. The salad bar is marvelous, with many unique choices. The seasoned toast served as an appetizer comes with both cheese spread and pate. Offerings on the menu include steak, chicken, and fresh lake fish. The perch are especially well seasoned and breaded for a very delicate, non-greasy treat.
