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.

We had a great dinner here and enjoyed the views. The restaurant was just across the street from the AmericInn where we stayed and was convenient to walk to. We both had a deep fried shrimp dinner and it was excellent and a good value. I loved my sweet potato fries also. We also had the beer cheese soup as... More

Minocqua Mule! Yum! Bartenders are nice, but I noticed when I reconciled my checkbook my receipts read $12.50 but they charged me $15. So they got a cash tip and squeezed an extra $2.50 out of me. Shady and rude so pay attention. I might suggest paying with cash. Also, heads up, everyone waiting for their table (you eat downstairs)... More

The atmosphere along with the view was spectacular. The food was delicious and well prepared. A must even if you just stop by for drinks.

I was excited to go here since my boyfriend had been going here for years and loved this place. We both ordered the rib special($19.00), not realizing it was beef ribs(should have asked). The salad was super small, i have never seen such a small salad in a restaurant. When the meal came, it was disgusting. I should have complained... More

We ate here last week. The food was very good. Everything we ordered was very good. I went for the beer, and was not disappointed. I had their porter. It was excellent. I, also, tried their brown ale. It, too, was very good. The service was excellent, too. Very friendly staff.

Very good food. The burgers are awesome. The batter on the mushrooms was the best. Light and crispy.

The craft beer was very good. They have a beautiful lounge area up above to relax and have a beer. I ordered the black and blue sandwich which was up there with the best burger I have had anywhere. My wife ordered the Reuben which she also enjoyed.

Stopped in for a couple of drinks on a Saturday afternoon & was really surprised that it wasn't more busy. The upstairs bar has great views of Lake Minocqua & outdoor patio seating. There is a large flat screen t.v. over the fireplace but when asked if the bartender could turn it on so we could watch men's soccer, he... More

Went here on one of the busiest weekends of the year (independence day) and the service was very prompt. They don't offer take-out in July-August, which is a bummer, especially if you can't get a table quickly. But we were able to be seated quickly and the service was really good. We were hungry and didn't realize that we ordered... More
