Great old place for a good old fashioned burger and a straight up beer. This is like throw back to the 60's experience.

By far the best burger I have eaten! Couldn't of had a nicer waiter . Old style bar type place, you won't be disappointed.

Loved the seasoned burger. Cash only. Family friendly and a little slice of Wisconsin supper club on the North Shore - great place to stop in for a bite to eat if you are shopping at all the popular places across the street.

Special bar that has been around for decades/ cheeseburgers and shrimp cocktail are the best. Good service, great atmosphere

The concept is this: Do not change anything. Leave it as it was when it opened in the fifties. The menu, with one exception (a Chicken Caesar wrap has been added) has not changed ever. The sign with the menu is the same one as when it opened. The style of cooking has not changed either, it appears. The hamburgers... More

This is a bare-bones tavern, cash only. They have one of the best burgers I've ever had. Even medium-well is tender & juicy. Grilled onions are good, too. We don't live in the area, but when we are visiting, we always stop here (twice this last time!).

The food and service is always top notch. We have traveled to California and Florida, and the shrimp cocktail here is the best! The burgers and fries that follow, are the icing on the cake. Tom, Andy and Jason just to name a few of the friendly servers, are amazing! This place is the best for a guaranteed good all... More

First know they have the best burgers. Cooked perfectly and very tasty. I almost never order burgers at other restaurants. Most are over cooked or just kind of tough. These are nearly melt in our mouth! Not a fancy place, but inviting and service is great. We travel from northern lake county just for the burgers. Fries and cole slaw... More

While visiting a buddy in Chicago, he said this is one of his favorite places. It is a rather unique hamburger joint that is very popular among the locals. The menu is limited and nothing fancy. The most popular items are the burgers and the shrimp cocktail. The restaurant has a bar and a very small dining area where tables... More

Great locals spot for burgers & fries & beer... shrimp cocktail too! Total Wisconsin North Woods type of spot with taxidermy fish on the walls. Simple menu, small & intimate, decent service, good value, worth the wait when there is one. Just be sure its open before you go as they close to go fishing (really) on occasion!
