We had the fish soup and BBQ Japanese chicken which were both very good. Hamburger was OK. Service was great. Thanks for the fun view of the harbor and people watching as boats arrived and departed.

I had the whitefish sandwich special, it was very fresh fish, and garnished with a tasty slaw. My wife had the Japanese BBQ chicken sandwich and she loved it. We'll be back for sure.

I have been workin here at this beautiful restaurant since June 2015. The view is absolutely gorgeous I always say its the best view in bayfield. Sad as it is I will no longer be working here. I'm sure going to miss all my coworkers. You are all the best and wish you all the best. I'm so glad I got to work and get to know all of you. I have never worked at a place where I felt so welcomed by all and got along with all. We have a new menu this year and I tried to get around to trying everything. When I came back this year my managers wife said at their old restaurant the people loved the taste of the food so much some people would lick the plates clean. I didn't believe her. Our first week open I got to witness it. I actually seen a lady lick her plate clean. The food I have tried had great flavor. I won't forget to stop in and have the chef gonzo make me my favorite, which is the chicken marsala. As you all well know we eat with our eyes so the presentation and flavor will have you coming back to try more. I would also like to say with all do respect that yes this restaurant hasn't had such a great last few years. We have been trying to come up with great new things to get a great name for this beautiful restaurant. Everything takes time when starting over. Nothing is perfect starting off or for that matter ever. We really do try to make everyone's experience here great. Just like any restaurant we make mistakes. That's why I have rated this restaurant with the best view in bayfield, the greatest coworkers, some the best food Iv ever had a 4 star cause as much as I love this place, no ones perfect, we can't please everyone no matter how hard we try. So with all that being said I am going to miss all of you very much and look forward to seeing you all soon.

Honeymooned an the Apostle Islands 25 years ago. Went here for dinner for the first five years and revisited this year. We had a window seat for a great view of the marina. I got the burger and onion rings. The rings were great. Almost too many which is a good thing. The burger was overdone and a bit dry. My bride had the fish soup and fish tacos. Both were very good. The fish taco could have used a bit more dressing. A good casual restaurant near Bayfield.

Thank you so much for sharing your experiences with us! We'll definitely make note of the burger preparation so it doesn't happen again. We're very glad you enjoyed the rings, tacos and soup -- they're very popular items on our menu. Hope you'll be visiting us again soon!

We ate here one evening as it was walking distance from the condo we were renting. Did not look like much from the outside, but wow, great food, and service.

The fish stew (more like a soup) was really yummy and we had the Chicken Marsala and the Italian Sausage pasta. Both were excellent. Its a bit on the pricer side for Bayfield WI, but well worth it.
