FANTASTIC dinner. Both my wife and I loved our meals. You felt like you were getting the best of fine dining in a quaint setting overlooking the water. A perfect evening out.

Outstanding fish fry, choice of whitefish or trout. Can't make a choice, get the combo. I had the trout, perfectly cooked with just the right amount of spices. Wife got the combo, she loved both of them. Only downside bartender had a hard time making an old fashion.

This restaurant had very good food, and we came on an unseasonably warm day in the fall. We sat on the rooftop where they had nice seating. My only complaint was that there only seemed to be one waitress for all the tables, which made it difficult to get what you needed. But it was a beautiful atmosphere!

We have visited the Bayfield Inn Restaurant many times. We have the opportunity to sit by the window and get a view of Lake Superior. This time I ordered a veggie omelet and the potato medley, which had 4 different types of potatoes included. This was probably the best omelet and potato combo that I've ever had. The wait staff...

Stopped here after a great day dog sledding. I ordered the fillet and it melted in my mouth! The meals comes with salad/soup, vegetable, and choice of starch. My 12 year old ordered from the kids menu and had the quesadilla with ham added. The portion size was quite large and tasty. Not only was the food superb, but the... More

My husband and I had dinner here, and the food was good, but not for what you pay for it. It had a nice atmosphere and big windows overlooking Lake Superior. We both ordered the chef's seafood special. The white fish was great, but the shrimp were under cooked and fishy. Clearly this was the special to try to use... More

Staff was friendly and the food came out quick. The portions were a little erratic. My wife order a side of potatoes one day that could have fit in her hand, so she got two sides the next day and it was the size of a dinner plate. The food all tasted excellent and had a pretty good variety.

We found our way to the roof top bar of Bayfield Inn on the first day of a four day stay in Bayfield. We loved spending happy hour time up there so much that first day we came back at ~4pm every day. Some days we'd order up an app. to eat with drinks other days just drinks and another... More

We had lunch on the rooftop. It was a nice clear day and Lake Superior was beautiful. Location is perfect. Menu offered a lot of options. The ordering service was unique, effective and efficient. Food was delicious. Service was quick (though the place was full). Will go there again, when we visit that area.
