Serving are generous and the food is average, but the overall experience wonderful. I can see why the locals and visitors love this restaurant. The overall atmosphere is perfect for Up North. Our waitress was very good and everyone was very friendly. We will return...More

We visited Fischer’s as we were told it was a town favorite. It has the potential to be very good. We visited when they were really busy and that might reflect why dinner was subpar. I read reviews on their burger so promptly ordered when...More

Thw chicken dinner was great. A lot there and I took it home and make chicken salad. The fish and chips was okay. Both Mom and my spouse said that they should have gone with the chicjken as well. But the fish was okay.

Reasonable prices, incredibly friendly service. Dark old fashioned interior is exactly what a delightfully throwback restaurant and menu (when have you last seen a place that offers "broasted" chicken) should have. My wife had the walleye which was also very good, but not as good...More

With friends for dinner, had walleye sandwich special. Ok, walleye pieces kinda small, and coleslaw not very creamy or flavorful. Somewhat disappointed compared to previous visit couple years ago. Service ok but nothing to write home about either.

I suppose there’s a technical distinction between “broasted” chicken and “fried” chicken, but I’d have to go to the U.S. Patent Office to figure out what it is. The broasted chicken at Fischer’s is pretty good, although it’s sufficiently greasy that they thoughtfully provide you...More

Really good food, friendly service. Burger was excellent as was soup. Decent beer selection on tap. Dining room can get crowded. Even so food arrived quickly. Reasonable prices for the area.

Stopped in here on a drive up M-22. The place has an awesome historic feel, and outdoor seating is available on nice summer days. The sandwiches were great and reasonably priced. The service was outstanding, super attentive and friendly. They really tried to make you...More

Food was ok. Service was marginal. Prices were ridiculous for the quality. I think there's a lot of positive reviews because the location is a phenomenal area and people are in a good mood when they dine there. They claimed they had no kids menu...More

I don't generally get on here to respond but after reading this I felt compelled. I'm very sorry that you had a bad experience. However I feel the need to defend my business in this instance. The Walleye is lightly breaded and fried, however it...More

This pub is only 11 miles outside Leland and we never knew it was here. The first thing on their menu is the broasted chicken. I ordered just the chicken and was in heaven! My husband had the steak sandwich and he raved about it....More
