Did you grow up in a fishing family? If you did chances are you enjoyed fresh fish over an open fire or dredged in flour and pan fried by the fisherman himself! Yum. If you didn’t have the good fortune of these experiences, don’t worry, you can still enjoy fresh, local whitefish at several restaurants along M123.

Try a local favorite – the beer battered whitefish fillet at the Tahquamenon Brewpub. Crispy on the outside, light and flaky on the inside. Locals and visitors alike agree these generous, delicious fillets pair well with one of the pub’s house brewed beers. The Brewpub, like most restaurants throughout the region, source their fish locally from commercial fishermen who fish on Lake Superior as often as they can.

Little Falls Gastropub & Smokehouse in Paradise puts a new twist on an old favorite with their trio of whitefish tacos. Fresh cabbage, a mild sauce, and flavorful seasoning make this a must try.

Browns Fish House is another must-stop for fish fanatics. Family owned and operated, the Brown’s have been in the fish business for generations. Be sure to try the smoked whitefish chowder, a local favorite. Get there early- popular by locals and visitors alike, this place fills up fast!

Regardless of where you dine, most likely the fish you are enjoying was caught just a few short miles away on “the big Lake” as locals like to say, by a fisherman whose family more than likely has been fishing the Great Lakes for generations. So you’re not only enjoying a great meal, you’re keeping a long standing local tradition open for the next generation.
