We only stopped for a drink but were treated so well we stayed for fresh broiled whitefish dinner. Delicious! It's busy for a reason! The bartenders and wait staff really hustled and the drinks and food appeared quickly. Very impressive! A fun, relaxed atmosphere.

Noisy, crowded, with an always busy bar where you can enjoy a coconut Pina Colado while waiting for your table! The tacos are my favorite, but Jack goes for the burrito. If you're a couple, ask for a booth, out of the happy commotion. It's worth the wait in any case. All the usual South of the Border delights; especially... More

This is the big brother to the Waterfront Restaurant. Just a funky little place. Good food. Good beer. Good vibe. Always busy. Great chips and salsa. Also has food other than Mexican. The owners are always around which really makes a difference. Would recommend it.

This restaurant has it all. Great location, laid back style, fabulous food, reasonable prices, and friendly service. They serve both Mexican and family style food. The quessdillas and enchiladas are really good here. However, the hidden gem is their lightly battered Cod Fish Fry. The basket comes with a huge side of delicious French fries and five pieces of fish.... More

Menus selection ok. Mexican/American choices. Perch sandwich serving was smaller than expected...3 tiny filets on a big bun with lots of lettuce...could hardly taste the fish. Nothing else came with, alacarte for anything else.

Great casual place to eat and socialize with others. The food is great-best chips/salsa and margaritas in Door County. House shot: The Bernie. Ring the bell! Sugar Shack Tiki Bar on the water located behind JJ's for sunset!
