We enjoyed a fabulous dinner here over the weekend. I had the pan fried walleye, which was absolutely delicious, and my husband had the rib-eye steak. The Guide's Inn staff is very attentive and kind, and very knowledgeable about their menu. We had a wonderful server named Rachel. The food is incredible, and worth every penny. We highly recommend it... More

We dine here several times each summer and have never been disappointed. Love the menu. Best walleye, veal, and scallops. Jimmy's ho-made ice cream is to die for.

Love this place, the chef cares so much about each person there and everything you are eating!! WE couldn't believe it but we were there last week and my husband got a rib eye steak and ended up getting a end piece. Well the chef decided it wasn't good enough and brought my husband a second steak because it wasn't... More

I have eaten at the Guides Inn a few times over the years and have always enjoyed it. I recently took a group of nine. I admit I always order the walleye because I love it, either stuffed or pan fried, so I cannot attest to the deliciousness of any other menu choices. Our group ordered a variety of entrees... More

Our family vacations in Manitowish Waters each summer (for a week) and has for the last ten years. We are always looking for new restaurants in the area to try during our stay. This year's new restaurant was The Guide's Inn in Boulder Junction. I must say, our entire party of seven (this includes our two, young grandsons) were completely... More

Our extended family of 14 dined here last week and everyone was pleased. They start you off with a nice plate of appetizers, followed by delicious soup and salad, and a wide choice of entrees. I had a veal dish with Gruyere cheese, tomato and onion. Unusual and excellent.Others in our group enjoyed the duck, rack of lamb, walleye and... More

Great menu and great food. The service was awesome. The chef came out often to talk with customers. Excellent walleye. Every table gets an appetizer platter which is big.

Go Hungry! Your meal is served in courses - not all at once - which I really liked. Be careful not to fill up on the appetizers. Leave room for dinner. The food is plentiful and rich! It was so good, I wasn't able to eat it all. The chef came out to chat with us and check to make... More

This place can always be counted on for a good meal. And the menu is not just the standard northwoods food. On my recent trip I went there again and was pleased as always. And the people are very very friendly.
