Good sandwiches

We stopped for a Sunday lunch. The menu is primarily beef or fried. There is a grilled chicken breast and buffalo chicken wrap made with grilled chicken. The buffalo chicken wrap was very tasty and messy - need extra napkins! There wasn't any silver ware on the table, so I had to request a fork... read more

Have been here a number of times, the food is about what you'd expect for a bar. The pizza is the most edible option. Other things... well, did I mention there's a bar? They have live music on weekends, moreso in summer, of wide variety, so I'll keep coming back! They don't rely on "rock" bands that make their living... More

This was my first time eating breakfast here and the food and service was good. Our waitress was training a new waitress and they both did an excellent job, will definitely be coming back!

We stopped in for lunch. My husband had the chili and bear bread--very cheesy bread sticks. Both were very delicious! We shared the Italian beef sandwich. It was fabulous! The ambiance was "cozy northwoods" with two fireplaces going. The waitress and owner were very attentive, asking several times whether everything was satisfactory. Everyone was very friendly! We would definitely return... More

stopped here after snowshoeing and before heading home after the weekend. Service was friendly and prompt. Food was great, they even switched over to lunch service for us, giant greasy burgers with really yummy french fries. Had a good Bloody Mary and a cold beer from the bar. We love places like this!

Always a stop worth making to this place. Inside has the typical "Northwoods" feel & can also sit in the outdoor patio area out back. Food your typical pub selections & decent pizza. They also hold live music including a Blues fest. In fall, also a good place to catch NFL games as they have plenty of TVs thoughout, including... More

This nostalgic feeling road side stop is easy to find and offers the friendly, inviting atmosphere you would expect from your trip to the north woods. It is great place to eat on your way in or out of town or for lunch or dinner when you just don't feel like cooking. Expect a casual, moderately priced meal, in authentic... More

Cute rustic log cabin feel. Food was average, definitely nothing spectacular. With only one waitress taking care of several tables with no help, service was a bit slow. It's understandable that when food comes up, it needs to be delivered, but waiting for a few sodas shouldn't take 15 minutes. Thankfully we weren't in a rush. Had to ask for... More
