Where to Eat

For a small town, Bayfield sure is big on places to eat. From fine dining to cozy breakfast spots to classic ice cream shops featuring real homemade treats, Bayfield’s many enticing restaurant options make it one of the best places to go in Wisconsin for those who love good food. In fact, Bayfield’s restaurants have been favorably reviewed and featured in such national publications as Bon Appetit, Gourmet and the New York Times along with Minnesota Monthly and Wisconsin Trails magazines.

Many of our chefs take their inspiration from Bayfield’s locally-grown and ever-changing harvest of berries and apples, along with the day’s catch of fresh Lake Superior fish. Sample seasonal soups and chowders, fresh vegetable casseroles and pies hot out of the oven. Don’t miss your chance to try some of the amazing local fish featured at many Bayfield’s restaurants. For the more adventurous eaters, be sure to sample our local delicacy, sautéed whitefish livers!

Dessert, anyone? Try homemade ice cream or a slice of our famous “wine bread”, made right before your eyes. And don’t leave town without taking home some pies, apple cider donuts, smoked and fresh fish, jellies, jams, fruits and cider to share with friends and family!

Whet your appetite further by browsing through the tempting menu of dining options and reading restaurant reviews at the links below. Discover for yourself what foodies already know – Bayfield is one of the best places in Wisconsin to eat well!
