The neon sign said "Fresh Fish," which seemed like a wonderful idea; we had biked about 14 miles, 6 of them loaded down with camping gear, and all of them on nothing but a few beef sticks eaten hours earlier. Stopped here back in February, where it seemed most of the island's hardcore inhabitants were brunching, but we were just there to use the ATM. At the counter, we saw the sign for the Friday fish fry, which came in trout or whitefish. Ordered one of each plus a fish chowder and a couple of hard ciders. Sat outside with a number and the ciders in hand, and watched the seemingly endless lake. Calm day. The ferry running in and out. Another couple a few tables over amusing themselves by feeding ducks. Food came out relatively quick. The whitefish was good, but I liked the trout better. The fish were definitely fresh and cooked perfectly, with a thin crumb batter. The fries tasted like your standard Sysco fries, good enough. The fish chowder was great, milky but not too creamy with large chunks of fish in it. We ate quickly and then sat around in a sated daze for a while. There is no greater way to pass the time watching Lake Superior and its going ons. Thumbs up from me.
This place had me confused from the start. What was it? You order over there, they bring out the food to you. Oh, it's similar to a Culvers! But wait, I need to order the drinks at the packed bar...okay, now that I have that straight, I can try the food. Fish seems the obvious choice, but I had a hankering for nachos. And that means it's time for the nacho breakdown! Chips: Big plate of tortilla chips. Nothing special about the chips. They did they're job as little plates with the occasional soggy one. Real Cheese: More like cheese sauce, this was my least favorite part of the nachos and hard to avoid. Fresh toppings: Yes, they had these right. A little cilantro, some tomato chunks, black beans and jalapenos on it. All made it the best part of the nachos. Sides: Sour cream on the side where it should be. Nacho conclusion: Pass on the nachos. While there was potential in the toppings, the chips and "cheese" killed it. Next time I'll try the fish and squeeze my way to the bar. But really how hard is it to make a place to order drinks?
This was a sweet spot - and the food was pretty nice as well. We got the white fish sandwich special and it was fried perfectly and came out fast!!! When at the bar the waitress asked if i wanted fries - which apparently was an upgrade - and I didn't want them really - but thought it just came with it - but it was really chips - anyways - had i known I probably wouldn't have "upgraded" to the fries - which were only on the okay side anyways - the sandwich however was awesome. Nice views of the lake and seems you can take your drinks out of the bar with you?
