Service at the bar was sensational. Bartender gave out lots of local knowledge and was very friendly. Sandwich was served hot and fresh. Excellent taste and high quality fish. Prices were reasonable.

I started off with a delicious cocktail, followed by an awesome walleye dinner, finished off with a shared dessert! Perfect evening! Great company and great food.

Food was very bland. From the pizza to the fish to the perch tacos. Nothing really stood out. Bloody Mary was pretty good. But that's about it.

As always, the food was great. My wife and I both had a late breakfast. The service and atmosphere was excellent. We look to go here when we are in the area and look forward to coming back again.

Our group of 9 came here twice on our trip and they were very friendly and accommodating both times. Pizza was great and steaks, I wouldn't recommend the burrito or enchiladas though. Save those for a true Mexican restaurant but overall a great experience

Thank you for dining with us twice over your vacation. We serve and get great reviews overall on our Mexican but I agre with you. I would order the fresh fish, salads, burgers, sandwiches or pizza before the Mexican. Thank you for the feedback
