We live off TA for most of are travel picks. This one failed us. Clam chowder average. It did have lots of clams in it and it was home made but nothing to write Jane about. I had a taste for fried mushrooms and they were out of a frozen bag. Nothing special. My wife had white fish with mashed... More

Dinner at Fred's was an unexpected dinner. I was late for me to eat and the hotel recommended Fred's. it's off the beaten path but just a few blocks from hotel. Sat at the bar and ordered the whitefish. Came with salad and fries and three pieces of whitefish. It had a very light dry batter and was moist and... More

We went to Fred's last year, based on previous comments from this site, and had a superb meal and great conversation with Fred. We went this past weekend and had another great meal and chatted with "Mrs. Fred," Wanda. The broiled whitefish is the best and the service was excellent. We will always include Fred's on our trips to da... More

Was in St. Ignace for the night on our way up north. The hotel recommended this restaurant to us saying that they had a Friday fish fry. We each ordered the fried whitefish and it was excellent. So fresh and not fishy at all. For a place that served so much fried food, you didn't get that greasy feeling when... More

I have already posted this review with Yelp. I ordered the Great Lakes whitefish for take out. It was delicious. I ordered broiled (most of the menu only offers fried fish). It was delicious. Definitely in the top 10 that I have ever eaten. The only reason I did not give a 5, is Kayla. I was the only customer... More

Friday Night Fish Fry was awesome! They get crowded but the owner will do everything in his power to make your visit a good one.We were a party of 6 (we are from various areas of the US doing the Great Loop and walked over from the Marina). The fish was fresh, hot and prepared perfectly. After dinner we bowled... More

On a trip to Mackinac Island, spend the last night in St Ignace and needed a place for dinner. Our hotel recommended Fred's Pub for good local fish. Definitely local, not fancy, next to a small bowling alley. My husband and I both got the broiled whitefish and it was really, really good. Very fresh and well prepared. Overall, a... More
