We had a couple of meals at the Raber Bar. The salad bar was very fresh and included soup, bread and cake for dessert. The cake was a disappointment, otherwise the salad bar was very good. One evening we had all-you-can-eat walleye and ribs at the bargain price of $12.95. The ribs were good, not great, and the walleye was... More

Even if you're staying in ST Ignace, this gem is worth the drive. It's a wonderful family restaurant that offers great service and great food. There's a very good salad bar with two soup choices, too. There are even desserts with the salad bar which is definitely unusual. There is a large menu which includes many fish choices. There are...

Nice rustic restaurant with plenty of wildlife adorning the walls (deer, beaver, otter, walleye, pike ... just to name a few). Good selection of fresh fish (deep fried is best) with a great salad/soup/dessert bar. Plus plenty of other food selections: steak, chicken, etc.

Had a great visit with friends. The wait staff were great and friendly too. Food is as good as it gets in the UP. Ordered the fish dinner for 2, and pepper poppers. Everything was spot on, salad batter! An all around nice experience. If you are in the area you should make an effort to get there for dinner.

We had the special for two, which was walleye, perch, and shrimp. Salad bar came with the special, and it was fabulous. Bonus points for not serving the non-nutritional iceberg lettuce, and for instead having leaf lettuce and spinach. The fish was delicious, and the mashed potatoes were REAL! Truly a gem and worth the extra mile or two to... More

This place is at a corner in the road near the cozy inlet of Raber Bay. There's nothing else here but the dining room was full when we arrived and there were more people coming in as we left. The feel is local and the food is good. Love their substantial salad bar. We go for white fish every time... More

We had a full crowd tonight of 11 people but as busy as it was, we got in with only a short wait. The salad bar was as good as ever and was stocked well despite the crowd.
