This is a very eccentric place with fantastic food! We tried the fried Cheese Curds. They were excellent. We ate two times while in Bayfield. The fried Lake Superior Whitefish and the baked Whitefish was excellent! Give this spot a try!

Really a great atmosphere! Celebrities from the 40-70s. Memorabilia posted everywhere from Marilyn Monroe, the doors, to willie Nelson! We had white fish which was delicious! Nearby to many different types of shops! Service was quick & efficient! Place was very clean!

We would recommend both the strawberry shortcake and the blueberry pie. Not so much the pesto pasta, but the meatloaf dinner got high marks.
