Great place to eat...!!! Loved the food , the decor, and the staff.... The manager even came out to chat with us... So nice !! Casual , laid back and very reasonable prices.. They have dinner and sandwich baskets, chowder, and a kids menu...And located right in the middle of downtown...My husband and I have been to Scalawags in Mackinaw City while traveling, and couldn't wait to visit the Traverse City location....If you love fish... Do NOT pass this place up...DELICIOUS !!!

Welcome To Scalawags

Jamo Washburn stated Scalawags in Traverse City many years ago with the intention of providing a great meal with a great atmosphere!

Jamo filets every piece of fish that come in fresh.  His special technique removes the dark “bloodline” that can give fish a gamey taste.  You will love his fish!
