In 1882, the building that now houses Shipwrecked Brew Pub was built. In 2017, a fire destroyed the old building, but when it was rebuilt in 2018, the customer was kept in mind. Rather than old rooms for an inn upstairs, the second story is a dining room featuring water views. With a history that harkens to Al Capone, there are also rumors of ghosts who gently haunt the halls of the restaurant, believed to be victims of Capone’s. Shipwrecked is a brewery that creates microbrews, and a local favorite is the fried cheese curds served with garlic chili ketchup.
