Great service and food! I had the perch tacos. Fresh, flavorful. I asked what the sauce was but was told it’s a secret. Reuben Balls were also very good! We will be back!

Stopped for a drink and appetizers. The cocktails were unique and very interesting. Basil mojito was the bomb. Had dinner of appetizers. They were very good. Would recommend it to anyone.

The restaurant was recommended by our B&B as a quality dining experience. We were impressed with the atmosphere, service, and food. The dining on the patio was so pleased with the cool clear weather. And what great food! I chose two appetizers and half a House Salad, and my companion had the rib eye steak served with seasonal vegetables. Fresh bread and dipping oil with balsamic was served as we waited for our meals – very tasty.

My half-salad was a generous serving of beautiful colorful mixed greens. The oysters Rockefeller were served piping hot and absolutely delicious; the stuffed mushroom caps (Italian sausage) baked with cheese and flavorful marinara were also hot out of the oven and tasty. The steak was perfectly cooked, and the freshly cooked vegetable mix still had a body and not overcooked. We’re already talking about another island visit and plan to make this place a part of the experience.

My friend and I had the fish tacos and they were great! Only ordered one and It had 2 big pieces of fish on it. The drink I had was called lime in the coconut and was yummy! We ate out on the covered patio and had a really nice vibe to it.

We just returned from a visit to Put-in-Bay and we were pleasantly surprised to try this quality gourmet restaurant for dinner. We each had one of the walleye meals and found them to be superb. We tried it based on other reviews and were not disappointed. If you plan on eating here on a weekend reservations are a must. We had about a half-hour wait on a Tuesday, without reservations. However, definitely worth the wait!
