Real Smokehouse Barbecue × Fine whisky × Craft Beer


Simple food, done well.


Perched a matter of feet from the shores of Lake Superior, Fitzgerald's Restaurant is an award-winning destination in Upper Michigan.  Our menu focuses on southern style barbecue prepared fresh in our all wood fired smoker, but we also offer a well-rounded menu of salads, sandwiches and entrées that appeal to everyone.

Smoked fresh daily, our barbecue is among the best and most authentic in Michigan.  Rich, local hardwood smoke, our tried and true rub and plenty of time are the key ingredients to making moist brisket, incredibly flavorful ribs and tender pork shoulder.  Call us for reservations today!
