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.

Came for lunch in the winter. Looked out over the lake... had the wild rice beer, which tasted much like regular beer, but I liked the uniqueness of it. The food and service were great. Loved the fried mushroom appetizer! Seriously, get it. The beef and Brie was another winner, as was the fish. Overall, a great lunch. Check it... More

It's a great place wether you're a tourist or a local. They are centrally located in The Island city of Minocqua,WI. They will have live entertainment on select weekends in the summer. If you like homemade beer, they brew an assortment of micro brews on site. They have a full cocktail bar and an array of fine wines to choose... More

Food was average, but the bar and lounge area were terrific. This place has a great atmosphere, and the staff was warm and welcoming. Great place to stop, relax and have a glass of wine. Beautiful views from the lounge. Well worth the stop!

The service is a little spotty but the food has always been good as has the beer. I like to stop in every time I'm in the area of vacation, and will continue. My only minor complaint is the wait at times, which is understandable, but at the last visit, my party was passed up for other parties, not so... More

I took my girlfriend out for a "birthday lunch" at the Minocqua Brewery. We were seated quickly, at a table facing the lake and given a menu. Our waiter appeared and immediately took our drink order and wished my friend a Happy Birthday. My Bloody Mary was nicely spiced and came with a pickle, olive, and mushroom. The beer chaser... More

Stopped in for the fish fry on a Friday night. The beer was very good and the Canadian Whitefish was awesome as well as being reasonably priced. I will be back for sure!!!
