    This was a milestone birthday dinner for me and it was perfect. Superb service and food. Loved the whitefish tots, chowder, pulled pork, and goat cheese cheesecake.

    The food here was delicious! It was a little bit expensive, but we went for our anniversary dinner & it was worth it! The hard apple cider is amazing as well. The staff was also super nice & helpful! We would totally go again.

    Both of us were very happy with both the menu selection, as well as the quality of what we ordered. Very yummy! The best part was the gracious and accommodating staff -- Liv was such a positive and easy-going server, Hannah and Jess were helpful with our reservation (and change!), and the person who brought out our food was so cute and sweet spirited. Great experience!

    Started with whitefish tater tots. Didn’t even know there was such a thing! Then had whitefish chowder with a Caesar salad. All was excellent. Also, they had an unusual beer by Oddside Ales out of Grand Haven, MI - Pior Restraint. Great service, too! Would readily go back again!

    This is one of the few restaurants in Marquette that takes reservations and hold to them. Server was also trained to check in with us during the meal. Salads were fresh and the burgers were ok. Place is loud. Bar service was pretty slow

    Food was delicious. Asked the waitress her opinion between 2 food choices. Can’t argue with what she chose. Black pepper fries were a welcomed surprise. I thought they would be very peppery but they weren’t. Stop and eat here. You won’t be sorry.
