Quick stop

My husband and I were pontooning around the lakes in Chetek, and although we have had not so good service and food in the past, we decided to stop for just an appetizer at the bar. Glad we did- maybe that is the way to go here. Joshua the bartender was very friendly and attentive. We had the... read more

Your Thanksgiving Dinner Buffet was horrible! We had dinner reservations for 3:30 pm for nine. We received our drinks and a gravy boat. As we headed to the salad bar at 3.45 pm, staff members were lighting the chafing dishes. The salad bar was not stocked the best, but made due with what was available. The soup was cold. Went...

Stopped after returning from an Auction. Ate outside and the area needs some maintenance if you are expecting a formal mean but it was a nice informal place with very good food, with a beachy setting. will come back

We decided to try Reds instead of our usual restaurant because it always seemed to be busy. But it's bar crowd that makes the place look busy. The 6 of us ordered supper no one was impressed. I had a taco salad, which are not hard to make, and it was the first taco salad that I hadn't finished it... More

I had the Chetek Dam nuggets and the blue moo burger. Both are highly recommended! They have Spotted Cow on tap (one of my favs) that we cannot get in MN!!

Red's has excellent food and great service. And to make it even better they serve free bacon in the bar at 10pm! They have a great outdoor patio with walls high enough to make eating outdoors extra comfortable in early spring and late fall.

Red's is a must-do if you are in Chetek. In the summer they have a fun outdoor patio, and all year they have amazing taco salad, fun bands and buffets for the holidays! They catered our daughter's wedding and did an excellent job - everyone raved. Everyone is very friendly, and helpful - I have never had a bad meal!
