Stopped here for dinner and to get out of the rain. I had the broiled whitefish platter and it was excellent. I was on a motorcycle trip through the UP and thought this looked like a good local establishment - I was definitely right. Recommend...More

If you order nothing else, you have to get the smoked beef barley soup. It's AMAZING! In addition, they carry local Northwoods sodas which are incredible. This place is definitely worth a drive off the main drag.

We were looking for a different place other than pizza or fast food. And we were surprised to find this hidden treasure. The fried fish dinner was light and crispy and homemade coleslaw. The waitstaff were friendly and very accommodating. We will be back!
