The interior is small with limited seating and can be hard to get a table. The food was really good. One of the nicer places on the island to have dinner. I highly suggest having dinner here. You can see the sunset from outside the...More

I arrived late, and alone for dinner after a long day's travel to the Island. The host at my place of lodging recommended the Sailor's Pub for a view of the sunset over the water. Unfortunately there are not many locations on the island to...More

We visited Washington Island for our 27th wedding anniversary knowing we wanted to celebrate by eating at Sailor's Pub. I called to make reservations and a woman, who identified herself as the owner, said the restaurant was closed that day - a usual business day...More

It is a quaint little place, small party, easy to get in but if you have more than 2 people, reservations are a must, esp if the outside seating is not open!! The food was good but it was pricy, not 100% convinced it was...More

Excellent restaurant at Shipyard Marina. You have a view of water, boats, and one of the best places to see the sunset on the Island. We were disappointed when it was closed this year and are happy it is open again. It is a bit...More

This family run dinner place is so much more than it appears to be. This is no pub; this place surpasses Morton's Steak House in Chicago for quality of the meats and every item on the menu is a combination of flavors to delight your...More

This is a little restaurant at the marina on Washington Island, WI. They have great food and top notch service. I found it this summer. You should include them in your reviews so more people can try their great food. It's not cheap, but it's worth it.
