We stopped by here after we took the Apostle Island sunset cruise. It was pretty busy as others who were on the cruise probably stopped here as well. The wait for an inside table was about 40 mins or so; therefore, we sat outside the...More

We ate there twice, I had a salad one night, it was fresh and delicious, the next day I had the fish and chips which I loved!, if you go there try the home made potato chips, they are out of this world!

We stopped in for a cocktail (and to get out of the rain). Friendly bartender and a wonderful classic old wooden bar. If you wanted to eat and didn't want to wait for a table - sitting at the bar would be a great option.

Ate lunch here while staying in Bayfield. Good food, great view. Nice patio to eat outside. We had the poutine, a first for me and really enjoyed it.

Chips were good. Burger was large. Cole slaw was bland. Nice atmosphere near the water. Friendly service from a nice lady. Not an outstanding meal. We enjoy local and personal touch but this didn’t have that. Felt like a basic restaurant-nothing outstanding.
