Description: 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. We do have on site parking, while also being close in proximity to downtown parking lots. From the lake, we are in what is known as "Save More Bay." Our docks are capable of handling four-to-six watercraft depending on size.

This place is good value for money, not cheap but reasonable. The food is freshly prepared, tasty and much better thank you'd expect from an average bar or brew pub. They brew their own beer it is universally excellent. My fave is the porter; a fantastic winter pint!

My wife and I make a point of returning to Minocqua Brewing Co everytime that we are in the area, and we are never disappointed. The service is friendly, the food is excellent, and we both love the views of the lake. I would highly recommend checking it out when in the Minocqua area, and especially the Steak and Shrimp...

My husband and I were excited to finally see what the minocqua brewery was all about so we finally got the kids a babysitter and had a much-needed date night. Unfortunately the wait staff sat us down at a table in a room with no windows and packed full of families with toddler and preschool aged kids. It was loud... More

This is such a varied menu with unusual things popping up all the time and everything I have tried is delicious. My dinner companion always tries one of the microbrews available and rave about them every time. When I get to visit Northern Wisconsin I make a point of dining here and am never disappointed. Great service, great good, beautiful... More

The ambiance is perfect for the Northwoods. It's warm, comfortable and classic. The food is always great, which is nice to count on when inviting guests out for the evening. We like that the menu isn't the same as every other place. The menu offers interesting twists on popular dishes and they're so good! The service is excellent and prices... More

Great atmosphere here, but that's where the enchantment ends. The service is not all that wonderful. Not very friendly. They have a limited menu of "upscale" choices that don't really seem to cater to the average person. We did find something on the menu to eat and while it was interesting, with a sauce we hadn't had before, it didn't... More

A large group of us showed up unannounced and the staff responded quickly and sat us with two large tables beside eachother. I ordered the beer and cheese soup which was delicious. The breaded fish and sweet potatoe fries were wonderful. The price was reasonable for such a good meal.
