Doug and Carla and family have been serving you the “Best Food Around” since 1979!
We are proud that our restaurant is highlighted in the December issue of SKY magazine, the on-board magazine from Delta airlines places at every seat in every plane! SKY features articles on the Upper Peninsula and talks about our fresh Whitefish! We are truly “World-Famous!”

We are world-famous for our Fresh Lake Trout and Whitefish, caught fresh daily in the icy cold waters of Keweenaw Bay and Lake Superior. We serve your fish as you prefer, either deep-fried or steamed in Carla’s own sprinkling of seasonings. Our menu includes Canadian Walleye, North Atlantic Cod, and Lake Perch, too! Dinners are served with our soup and salad bar, or as a basket with fries and cold slaw. Other menu choices include chicken, shrimp, steaks and the popular liver and onions. We hand cut our French fries to order!
We hand-patty our burgers with fresh ground chuck, and have other sandwiches! The Philly Steak is a great choice. A kid’s menu is available, and Senior size portions , too!
Try our homemade (by Carla herself) Butterfinger Ice Cream Pie! Yummy!
We have a full bar, and serve beers brewed locally by the Keweenaw Brewing Company (Carla’s favorite is the Widowmaker, a black ale -she will tell you if you try it and don’t like it, she will drink the rest herself!)
New ! We now serve draft beer in 5 popular flavors, including Carla’s favorite Widowmaker.
When the weather is nice, enjoy our outdoor seating deck overlooking Lake Superior and Keweenaw Bay!
