I am a vegetarian and tried the log jam minus roast beef plus banana peppers today. It was great. Love the feta, 3 pepper relish, and guacamole. The pretzel bread is amazing. Friendly staff. Not as crazy as season during the week this time of year. Open till the 27th I believe.

Sisson’s Main Street Specialties is home to some of the most delightful deli-style foods, baked goods and desserts found in all of northwest Michigan. Located just one block east of Leland Harbor Marina in Leland, Michigan’s Historic Fish town, Sisson’s made-from-scratch offerings like blueberry bran muffins, homemade breads, one-of-a-kind marinades, dressings special desserts make our restaurant a favorite among locals and visitors alike.
Stumbled upon this little gem. They offer several sandwiches, salads, and soups. We had the Leland salad with spinach, walnuts, dried cherries, blue-cheese crumbles, and chicken for $7.99. It's a very relaxed atmosphere with plastic utensils. Simply fun and great food!! Homemade dressings accompany the salads!!

made a point to stop here to pick up some pie, cookies and sandwiches prior to our visit at sleeping bear dunes. pies were good particularly the blueberry but my sons and hubby preferred grand traverse pie co. upside, pies were cheaper here. choco chip cookie that i had read was soooo good was not sooo good. luckily only $1. sandwiches were tasty. wouldn't go out of my way just to go here.

I suppose there’s a technical distinction between “broasted” chicken and “fried” chicken, but I’d have to go to the U.S. Patent Office to figure out what it is. The broasted chicken at Fischer’s is pretty good, although it’s sufficiently greasy that they thoughtfully provide you with a packaged wipe to use after you have finished your meal and gone through all your napkins.
The chicken dinner, well priced at $13.95, includes fries and cole slaw. The unadorned chicken offering at $9.95 is made up of four pieces, although, except for the wing and breast, I couldn’t clearly identify the other cuts. While chicken breast is often the most coveted piece, mine was a bit tough, dry, and stringy, although my wife was pleased with hers.
Wine prices, while fairly average, are no bargain, with undistinguished bottles starting at $23.00. That’s not off the charts, but it doesn’t match the low-pricing of the dinners.
We were initially seated in the back room at a table under the window. But, having soon been visited by numerous gnats, we moved to a nearby table that was marginally better in that respect. Surprisingly, the manager appeared shortly thereafter to open the window, thereby welcoming more unwanted winged creatures into the restaurant.
Like so many bar/restaurants, Fischer’s has virtually no soundproofing, so if you happen to be seated near loud neighbors — a condition that seems to be the norm these days — you won’t find the social atmosphere very conducive to conversation.

We have stopped in for both happy hour for just drinks and apps and for dinner as well. The staff is great, prices are very reasonable, and service is fantastic! The house bloody mary was amazing! Adam is a great bartender and suggested a few great beaches and hikes nearby. Truly a great bar with an "up north atmosphere"!

What an awesome place! Whoever came up with the idea to have igloos is very creative. It was fun stopping by. The beer wasn't great, but we enjoyed the hard cider. The food was excellent (I had the pulled pork tacos, really good). Would definitely recommend checking out even if just for the novelty of it.

Gelato, Sorbet and Italian Ice are made with all natural, local fruit (when available). These small batch creations are made in house daily and feature fresh fruit flavors as well as dairy free options. Also serving Higher Grounds Coffee (Hot, iced, Decaf, try adding Gelato) Natural Sodas & Floats.
Went here with a friend for a mid-afternoon snack (also a snack to help absorb some of the wine from the tastings). I ordered a small size ($4) of the gelato and had the Double Chocolate and Salted Caramel flavors. My friend also ordered a small and had the Pistachio and Pumpkin flavors. They offer three different sizes for the Gelato: Mini ($3), Small ($4), and Regular ($5). Everything was absolutely divine! In fact, I am craving it and wish that I didn't live so far away. I also had a latte and it was freshly made and had a very nice flavor to it. Also appreciate that they offer soy and almond milk substitutes for lattes. I will definitely be visiting the next time that I am in the area. They also offer sorbets and everything is homemade by the owners, so fantastic! Did I also mention that the service here is amazing? They are super helpful and genuine.

Never had not had wonderful service or a fantastic cup of joe. Iced or hot. Service wonderful. Location great. Other customers friendly. Great Columbus, Ohio beans. Good place to stop while cycling around the area for a leg rest.

We had an incredible waitress, I think it was Dee. She made things so fun from the beginning. There were three of us and we all got the salmon because it sounded so good. And it surely was! We also had Japanese Cheesecake that was truly excellent. Go here if you can.

Blue Boat Coffee is Leland, Michigan's best coffee shop. We provide our customers with a delightful cafe experience, offering delicious coffee and espresso from MADCAP, fresh pastries and charm in a modern setting. We believe in quality: the third wave of coffee. It's a movement to roast and brew high-quality flavor—the end product an artisanal beverage—rather than a commodity.
When you have a very young order taker who doesn’t know the difference between a cinnamon roll and a croissant, your ensuing expectations shouldn’t be very high. The over-priced cinnamon roll (as it turned out to be) was adequate, but the coffee — which is presumably the mainstay of this place — was pretty bad. The espresso had a strange “off” flavor, and the cappuccino lacked the rich body that should underlie the froth. I don’t know where this place gets their beans, but maybe they should consult with Starbucks.
