We are a Wisconsin Micro Brewery and restaurant located in downtown Minocqua. We offer a variety of different ales, trending from light and easy-drinking, smooth amber styles and the rotating darks. Always 6-8 different craft beers on tap at all times. We are not a fine dining restaurant, but offer up our own twist on American classics and evening entrees after 4:30 p.M. Live Music every Friday and Saturday in our upstairs lounge. If you are coming onto the island from the north, we are on east side of Hwy. 51 South, next to Torpy Park.

Fun Place; Good Food

We enjoyed a casual dinner in this restaurant. Sandwiches are good; steak dinner was good as well. Don't miss the sweet potato fries! We would definitely go back.

We stopped in for a beer tasting and lunch. The Octoberfest beer was awesome! It's not on the menu so you need to ask for it. We had the lake perch and it was absolutely delicious. With cole slaw that was chopped rather than shredded and garlic mashed potatoes topped! Them topped it off with an ice cream Brandy Alexander.... More

From the outside this place looks huge but when you go inside and down to the dining area it was very small!! My husband ordered the salad to go with his dinner and we got giggling because it was the smallest salad we had ever seen! The dinner was good but this is one place I would not return to... More

Best grilled cheese I've ever had. (Add bacon, it's so good!) my husband liked the beer sampler paddle and we left with a few growlers of the beer. We go here every time were in town, it's great

Great menu choices. We had the daily special, a turkey sandwich and grilled cheese sandwich. All of them were cooked just the way we wanted them even with all of our special requests. We went at lunchtime and ate outside-super location.

We had a family birthday celebration here with a party of 19 people. We did have to wait quite a while since they don't take reservations and it was a busy weekend, but they gave us an accurate estimate of wait time. We enjoyed drinks in the bar upstairs and the time went quickly. Once we were seated we ordered... More

Unique menu to suit all diners from vegetarians to carnivores. Knowledgeable & friendly wait staff won't steer you wrong. I shared the beer flight with a friend and would go back for more. I understand they offer live entertainment upstairs.

MBC is our go to place whenever we're in Minocqua. The food is delicious, we love the addition of the Kale Salad this year, but we do miss the bratwurst. It's good to change things up now and then, though. Also the calamari strips and artisan cheddar nuggets are to die for. Super friendly staff, beautiful surroundings, and convenient location...

Went with my husband on Sunday night. Pleasantly quiet after weekend tourists. Ordered a burger and a wrap-nothing special. 45 minutes later it still hadn't arrived even though other guests who came after us had received their food. Finally after we asked about the delay. Our food then came out. Waitress was not attentive during the evening. Did not bring... More
