I've always heard that Walleye is the best tasting of the freshwater fish... I finally got to try some fried Walleye at the Villager Pub while vacationing in Lake Charlevoix. It was fantastic! My wife and I also tried broiled Whitefish - also terrific. Service...More

On Thursdays they offer pot pies made by a local cook. They are wonderful. Call ahead to reserve yours, because when they are gone that's it.

Year after year we keep going back to the Villager Pub. It has good, solid bar food plus really good Whitefish fresh from John Cross Fisheries. Off season features inexpensive daily specials that provide a good bang for the buck. During the summer, it can...More

You can count on a great meal every visit. Too many places are great one time and disappointing on other visits. Villager is a good meal every time, Love the burgers, nachos, and turkey reuben. I am not a big fish eater but everyone raves...More

Great summertime gathering place for beer and a burger. If you are there for dinner, they are known for their whitefish and fries. Not fancy but a great fallback place to eat or hang out!

Every experiences like eating with friends. Staff is great. Food consistently good. Friendly and professional at the same time. Go early to avoid crowds on weekend. In the summer, packed with tourists. Part time resident.

Went based on Trip Advisor reviews and wish we hadn't. Draft beer - not good - admittedly something was amiss with their system. Fish (white, walleye, and cod) was subpar. Wet burrito subpar. Waitress was nice enough.

Came here on a Friday for the fish and chips. I liked the coleslaw and fries and I thought the fish was pretty good. My husband didn't like the fish... thought it might be the oil it was fried in. Cozy atmosphere .. went around...More

Initial impression: classy pub just across from the harbor in downtown Charlevoix, close to everything. Atmosphere: we went for lunch, so I can't speak to the evening atmosphere, but it was quiet and nearly empty on a Friday in the early afternoon. Lots of beer...More
