We stopped in for one drink and loved the old school nostalgic look of the bar plus the super nice bartenders. Ended up staying a lot longer than we intended but it was a great night.

Shocked at the owner's attitude and demeanor. I went in with my family - party of 8 (all over the age of 11). The owner was working the bar when we came in and was rude from the get-go. We wanted to put two tables...More

A winter day trip to Washington Island (via the car ferry) led to a surprise when we stopped at Karly's for a sandwich lunch. We had the best service from the sweetest elderly gal, which enhanced the congenial atmosphere making our food all the more...More
