A Northern Wisconsin specialty

The Spot in Iron River, Wisconsin, is high on our list as we gather in Northern Wisconsin from Oregon, Washington and the District of Columbia. The food is great, the hosts are the best and the views of Busky Bay are superb. Whether we are here in the winter, spring, summer or fall, I always... read more

After three visits in the past 6 months the last time was not good. It was the first time for my friend. She ordered the ribs and could not eat them, worst ever. I had the white fish and not clue why they would leave the skin on. The skin gives a fishy taste and its such an easy process... More

When in Iron River for the Blueberry Fest we happened upon this true Wisconsin super club. We were there on Sat and ordered the prime rib special. Done perfectly! Delightful dinner with beautiful lake view! Wait staff was excellent and friendly. This is really a destination!

My brother lives near there and recommended we have lunch there. We sat outside and had a great lunch while looking over a peaceful lake. The food was very good and so I brought my wife over one day to show her. They weren't open until 5p.m. so we couldn't go inside, but this summer we will!

I went to The Spot with a group of 8 people for dinner. The food and the service were very good. The menu had something for everyone, including the vegetarians in our group.

I had the lobster and fillet, and it was wonderful. The staff was friendly and attentive. A great place to relax and enjoy the lake and ambience.

Our first time here. Our experience from the beef tenderloin to seafood was A+. We are from the Chicago area with a history of dining experiences. Yes the view is outstanding but, we equally felt the owners and staff were outstanding as well. There were regulars that came in, not from around here, so after our meal we sat at... More

Just went to the bar section 2x. Owner did not know how to make a Lemondrop? A request for a Jim Beam and coke resulted in a shot of Jim Beam and a glass of coke? The two nearby property owners I was with were not impressed. Will not be returning. No attempt at engagement by owner/barkeep. This is a... More
