We stopped in this harbor to gas our boat and decided to visit this quiet little town for a few hours. Our lunch at the Shamrock was wonderful. Don't let the "standard northwoods bar" decor fool you. Their menu includes standard fair as well as Organic Bison Burgers and Edemame.

We had lunch outside on the patio. We enjoyed a view of Lake Michigan and the nice flowers planted between the patio and sidewalk. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu, specials and the how and why of the preparation of the day's special fresh fish. We asked her to tell us a little bit about Beaver Island. So, after she took our order she gave us a brief overview of the island and the local history. We appreciated her sharing just the right amount of information.

One of us ordered the Whitefish special. It was served hot with french fries. The fish was moist and hot and the coating was crispy. One of us ordered the Angus Beef Burger with Sweet Potato fries. Again this was served nice and hot, on a fresh bakery type bun. The lettuce and tomato I asked for with the burger were cold and fresh. Both of us enjoyed our food, view and service. If we are ever at Beaver Island again we will visit the Shamrock.

The last two trips up here the food has been bad. Bad quality & service. Our food came out cold & undiserable. I won't be eating here again. It's a shame it's gone down hill, it the first thing you see as you get off the ferry!

The restaurant was not all bad... The drinks were good! The food was just not all that it was cracked up to be. We even went back after we thought it was just a bad batch of fish that we got... My burger was alright. But my fiance will never go back she says.

I was told that there are only a few bars on the north side of the island and this one, located right on main street, is really good. Outdoor seating, decent value, and really good food! Try the seafood chowder!! Great service too!
