The place is nothing spectacular. It's in a little strip, so it's not facing the water and has a bitty dining room, but the food was very, very delicious. Who doesn't love fresh battered whitefish? We sat outside on a little picnic table in the courtyard area. They claim to use premium vegetable oils - low carb and zero trans fat. Of course, hush puppies come with baskets as well as fries and cole slaw. They also serve perch, shrimp, walleye - and for those who don't eat seafood - chicken fingers, hot dogs and ham, grilled chicken or turkey sandwiches. They also serve Scalawag's Famous Homemade Whitefish Chowder.
Kid meals are generous - a whitefish meal for kids is $5.49. Baskets for grown ups start at $7.89. The place is totally worth a stop for a swift meal if you're looking for some good local grub for lunch or dinner.
