I took my bride to The Fish for her birthday. We have eaten at Chef John's many times before and this time was just as excellent as our previous visits only this time our visit was in February. John used to close for winter so we were very excited to be able to enjoy his culinary skills during the darkest... More

So happy that they have stayed open for the winter this year, coming up on Lent and this is one of our favorite spots for fish. My personal recommendation is the sunset/sunrise (can't remember which) potatoes. Sweet potatoes combined in mashed potatoes. Wonderful

From the management to the waitress everyone of them was welcoming and accommodating to our large groups impromptu stop at dinner hour. Drinks were great! Outstanding bartender!... More

It is a little drive out of Harbor Springs and in a modest enough setting but this place cooks up the local fish fare with a fine dining flare. Never disappoints me, love the perch and walleye and the chef specials like fried squash blossoms and the clam chowder is a delight. Top drawer wine list too. Everyone seems to... More

I ordered a vodka cran, but they had no cranberry and asked if I wanted orange or grapefruit. I ordered grapefruit and found out when I... More
