Consistently good food and good service. I love the batter fried shrimp....I would normally never order this but it is excellent here. Very large shrimp, very light batter. I usually end up taking half home, portion is large. Walleye is great pan fried. Partner enjoys...More

Good food, nice atmosphere and good service. I had the deep fried shrimp, a friend had the broiled shrimp and it was overcooked. There were 11 of us and no way to put tables together, we had to split up into two tables.
