Great craft beer and full bar. The seafood was great. Atmosphere is awesome. They just remodeled recently. A great improvement. Will definitely go back.

My husband and I have eaten here numerous times over the last eleven years. We always get the sauteed perch and it never disappoints. However, this time it was the service that could have been way better. Not a packed night and at least 30 minutes went by before the food arrived, and then only after we complained. When it... More

Wife got white fish dinner and I got yellow perch dinner both in beer batter. We went early and didn't have a wait. The staff was nice and service was great! However, it's not a place we will go back to unless we just want a couple of drinks and some skins. Struck out again in MI to find a... More

We gave this restaurant 3 tries thinking maybe it was just a bad night, but we're always disappointed. Awful food and poor service!

We came with kids and a crowd of people, and the servers were very helpful. Food came early, portions were plentiful, and the fish tacos were first rate.

Not to many places I have ever walked in the door to see empty booths, 2 right in front of my family, to be told that we would have to wait 30 to 40 minutes.... Hostess said " we just got a big table of 10 in"... Isn't that what restaurants want? Walked away in disbelief!

Nice looking restaurant but the food was bad. Limp french fries and soggy perch with a side of overcooked squash. Service was good but again, the food was bad. Will not return!

Writing this review after being at the restaurant for over an hour but have not sampled any food. We waited a half an hour for a table that we could see was available when we entered. They were out of smoked salmon and the bouillabaisse. Finally got food. It was just ok. Very disappointing compared to other places we have... More

Every year we have dinner here during our family stay in South Haven. This year we were impressed with the new decor, which is updated and welcoming. We tried to call ahead repeatedly for our group of 10, and they must have taken the phone off the hook because no one answered. Upon arriving no one was at the hostess... More

Had some oysters in the bar in July 2016 followed by salmon burger and fries. Good was good, service was better. Play shuffleboard if you can!
