This is a somewhat rustic dining room right on the water's edge with plenty of windows to see the sun go down (eventually). Warm, comfortable and inviting this restaurant with a bar specializing in whiskeys has a menu beyond just the barbecue for which they're best known. I enjoyed Walleye nicely prepared. The platters of meat are enormous and the... More

Three of us ate here on Mother's Day and it was a nice lunch with Great Lake views. I didn't particularly care for my food but I should have known better than the choice I made so I won't go there. Heads up, check your bill. When my husband signed the check, he noticed that a 20% tip had already... More

Hi Mel, I'm sorry for the misunderstanding, but we don't ever add a gratuity on purpose. I wish you would have mentioned it before you left so that we could have sorted out what happened right away, but e-mail us at info@eagleriverinn.com and we'll be happy to figure out what happened. More

Had a lovely evening out here with friends. It is a small restaurant, and very popular with locals, so reservations are a must. Service was great, and all the dishes we tried were quite good.

I normally love this restaurant and frequented it with my friends during my time as a student at Michigan Tech. However, after the way my family and I were treated on our last visit, I'm not sure that I will be coming back. My mother in law made reservations back in January for an evening in May to celebrate my... More

My wife and I were cleaning up the camp for the summer. We decided to head up the north shore for dinner. Having been to Fitzgerald's before to be told there was a 2 hour wait and left gave it one last chance. I walked in asked for a table to be told no tables available that they were all... More

Having two boys attend the nearby University, we have had a number of meals at Fitzgerald's since they opened. My boys liked the smoked foods, I liked the view. When I asked my son where he would like to go for his college graduation dinner, Fitzgerald's was at the top of the list. Knowing reservations are going to go fast... More

Had dinner here Saturday evening and was excellent as always. The ribs were as good as any we've had. Outstanding beer selection. Beautiful view. Couldn't ask for more.

We had a wonderful lunch on their opening weekend of the season. We started with the pork belly toast and wings. The pork belly is a staple app for my son and I. But, we had never tried the wings. I think that they too will become a staple app. They are very tasty on their own. We ordered the... More

First you will most likely not get cell service which is a good thing. The view is beautiful. The food was wonderful it is best if you reserve a time as seating is limited.
