Welcome To Our Island Getaway

A one of a kind destination located on the Middle Channel off of Harsen’s Island in Southeast Michigan. Whether by boat or by car, come enjoy a great meal, a cold beverage, great company, and a memorable experience in a wonderful waterfront setting.

Watch the boats come and go, enjoy a beautiful sunset, or just enjoy the island ambiance. We think of it as our summer cottage and we invite you to do the same.

We are now closed for the season. See you in the spring!

“Our old standby destination on the water.”

Brown's is my favorite seasonal destination on the water, and it keeps getting better. This is an established, rustic place with "character". The docks are well-maintained, the deck has been expanded in recent years, and the staff numbers have increased by a few.

For food, the Madison Burger is the old standby. I ventured away from that a few times this past summer, and discovered that their wraps are actually very good.

The service might be slow at times, but this is Harsen's Island. Relax, have a beer, and watch the boats and people come and go.
