While the burgers and fries are top notch, I have a hard time getting past the bathrooms which have not been updated since 1950 when Beinlich's opened. Trust me, upgrade that. While the style is old and rustic, can't it be modernized just a tad? There is no room to move around the restaurant. You go here knowing you will... More

First let me say that I've been here many times, but it's not a regular stop due to the high prices for a burger but I really like it here. It's like a special treat place. We always sit at the bar. Now they have a big flat screen TV behind the bar. Yes only one TV. The look is... More

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

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
