Because of the friendly owner and very good food, this is where the locals hang out. Prices are competitive with other area dinner places and you get plenty to eat. Don't expect fancy, but do expect good food. (mostly hamburgers, steaks, chicken & fish)

Stopped in late afternoon. A few locals coming and going. Very good burger served on white bread. Nice bartenders and talked it up a little with the locals in the bar. Did not have to eat the rest of the day. Burger was filling.

Friendly service at the bar, great options on the menu, we had the rib eye combos with shrimp and lobster. The food was fantastic. The place is not big and that is totally ok, it makes it all the better. You will not leave hungry. We are coming back, sure wish we lived closer to make it out Saturday night... More

Recently moved to Sturgeon Bay but have been visiting for 40 years. Have eaten here twice recently. Burgers are only so so and I have to say I'm just not a fan of the bread they serve them on instead of a bun. But the last straw was when I was there recently on a saturday night and wanted to...

There's a reason we keep coming back. Excellent food at reasonable prices. I went there with my parents and now I take my kids there! The ribs are the best in the area!

Second time we have had fish fry here and it is still excellent. We had perch and shrimp. The Perch is very light and not fishy, you don't even need to put anything on it, just eat it plain. The shrimp comes with a very zesty cocktail sauce. Fries are deliciously greasy. Full bar. Service is adequate but not super... More

Ok, I really don't like writing a poor review, but I honestly can't give this place a 4/5. We go out for a lot of Friday fish fries throughout the state and do have our favorites that are truly amazing. We asked around were to go for the best Fish Fry in Sturgeon Bay and ended up here but I'm... More

Quiet, nice, quaint, clean place where many a locals frequent. Flavorful, greaseless burgers served on good homemade bread. Great Fri perch, great Sunday chicken, good pizzas...

Best fried perch I've had in a long time! Not the typical fried battered fish you'd expect from a tavern. This is awesome, lightly pan fried perch. Friendly staff and a great local feel!

We were looking for a good place to grab a burger on our way home from our stay in Ephraim. We saw this on Trip Advisor and thought we would give it a try. The burgers and fries were homemade, and some of the best we have had. We were impressed with how friendly they were. We really felt right... More
