"Great staff, drinks and food."

We visited Ethel's at 250 for the July 4th long weekend with kids and loved the dining experience. The service was excellent. The owner of the restaurant, Sally, was very warm and cordial and made it a point to check with us about the food. We are vegetarians and the waitress was very friendly and helped us pick vegetarian options for us and the kids. The waitress also split the portion size for 2 on request. We were planning to take the Apostle Island evening cruise and as the cruise ends closer to 9pm, we called Sally to check if they would be open. She was quite flexible about the closing hours and asked us to come for dinner. The ambiance was very cozy and I would say this was one of the best dining experiences we have ever had!

Absolutely scrumptious! My boyfriend said that our meal was so good that it made our three hour drive to Bayfield worth it. It's obvious that the owners take great pride in running a restaurant with fantastic food, a sophisticated but friendly atmosphere, and a very good wait staff.

Carrie, we are glad that you had such a great experience. We are really proud of our food, our building, and our staff. And it was great to talk with you and to help the two of you have a wonderful time in Bayfield! Thanks for your wonderful comments.

Incredible dinner. I had the Pesto Pasta Whitefish and my wife chose the Spaghetti and Meatballs. Both dishes were excellent. The meatballs were delicious and the whitefish was fresh and perfectly seasoned and cooked. We both preceded our meal with a Organic Greens Salad. The ingredients in the salad were so fresh they tasted as if they had been harvested that morning. The Apple Vinaigrette dressing complimented the greens well and, while I usually set aside croutons, the cheddar croutons were delicious. Service was a little slow for a moderately busy Friday night but friendly. Given the fresh ingredients, taste and quality of the menu items you would expect to spend more for your meal. You will not. It is a reasonably priced, clean, unpretentious restaurant in beautiful Bayfield, Wisconsin. I highly recommend you call ahead to take advantage of their priority seating. And be sure to stop at the Candy Shoppe for a waffle cone on your way back to your boat or hotel room.
