There really isn't a lot of sit down Restaurants in St. Ignace and we wish we would have passed this up! Food was just okay and the crust on my chocolate pie was soggy but I didn't want to complain.

I had the breaded, fried whitefish chips with potato salad (substituted as an upgrade from fries). It was the right size meal (not too big) to finish this day.

My husband and I found ourselves in Saint Ignace on our way north from Florida. It was Mothers Day, so a bit pre season for this tourist town. Many of the restaurants were still closed from the winter season. The Galley had a nice view...More

Celebrated our anniversary here. Had the prime rib and whitefish off the senior menu. Both were excellent and plenty of food. Everyone was so nice, and the service from our waitress Fern was top notch. So glad we went there.

Good food here. The place is typically packed, so plan ahead time-wise. It has a great view of the lake letting you relax and enjoy a good meal!

Horrible service, the food was not warm enough. The food is greasy and the fish was not great. I only ate there one time and that was enough for me. It looks run down and needs to be updated.
