I did enjoy the nice options on the menu, which differs from the usual burger and sandwiches. They have a very nice carpaccio appetizer with good flavors. The kids menu was the usual fare with nothing too special. The service was ok- nothing to make you come back. I wasn't disappointed overall but also probably wouldn't be back for seconds.

We arrived on a Sunday night and was told 45 minute wait by a rude hostiss. We should have left but with the good reviews, decided to stay. Bad choice. After waiting 45 minutes to be seated, we sat down. It took 30 minutes before the server came to our table. Once we ordered, it took 45 minutes to get... More

Can't beat this brew pub for the great food and location. I have been twice two years apart and enjoyed it both times, once sitting inside and once sitting on the patio. There is a great selection of sandwiches and salads, and, of course, their own brewed beer. This time I had the shredded beef, grilled onion and brie cheese... More

The beer cheese soup is excellent and they had many vegetarian options, which is hard to find in that area.

Beer was tasty. Long wait for table and even longer wait for the food. Waitress was a little too chatty about nothing. When the food came out it was just average. Not sure why so many people want to eat here when in Minocquoa. There has to be better food elsewhere.

There was plenty to choose from for 5 of us- even a vegetarian daughter found something to eat. I would have gotten... More

Ok, I should have read other reviews. We walked in sign says food only down stairs. Went to desk and we were told by real jerk it would be a half hour wait. We then asked if we could sit at the bar, his reponse, "sure but you cannot order food". The bar was completely empty. Ok if you cannot... More

We got a table overlooking the lake, it was very nice. We were in the mood for german food so we ordered a Bavarian pretzel to... More

Stopped in for lunch on a beautiful summer weekend day. The beer was pretty good, but the food was just so so. I had the turkey reuben which for some reason they serve open faced. Unless you want a whole mess of saurkraut leftover on your plate, be sure to ask for a top to your sandwich. Figuring that it... More

Once seated for our meal, my husband & I ordered an appetizer & sandwiches. The appetizer never came, and our waitress never came back to check on us. 20 min later our sandwiches arrived. The waitress apologized about the app & offered us some complementary soup, we declined. I had a pulled pork sandwich & my husband had a reuben.... More
