The whitefish sandwich was one of the best fish sandwiches I’ve ever had. Shrimp platter was good too but they forgot my tartar sauce. Not too bothered though as it was all still so great. Chowder was very good as well. Can’t seem to go wrong here
Scalawags never disappoints! Every time I'm in Traverse City, I make an attempt to stop and get some amazing Walleye. Had a small issue with the salad I ordered, I took it up to the lady at the front counter and pointed out the error. She overwhelming apologized and corrected the issue. Moral of the story, if your looking for great food and great service, stop at Scalawags!
This is the best place for a good fish in town. The fish is the classic deep fried white fish, perch, walleye. Whether you have it as a sandwich or as stand alone fish, it doesn't get better. Great sides too (fries, coleslaw, and hush puppies)There are other options for pickier kids like chicken tenders or hamburger.
