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.

Keep coming back here for spot on steak sandwich and juicy hamburgers. Love the dipping sauce with sweet potato fries. Beer is always top notch.

If you want great atmosphere, this is the place. The lounge (Divano's) upstairs is great to just hang out and listen to live music. Drinks are good, but the food is just okay. Had the steak and shrimp a couple days ago: shrimp was good, steak kind of tough and not seasoned at all.

When we first arrived and were seated there was a very obnoxious group of ladies that made it known they were having a good time. Once our waitress Jody came to talk about the specials, she did her best to talk over them. Soon after the host made sure to get things under control and to get them to take... More

The food was great and we received excellent service. We had the burger (cooked as requested and delicious) and the spinach salad (large serving with very fresh ingredients). We will definitely stop again!

I went for an early Sunday dinner -- there were only a few people there. Menu looks like it wants to be upscale - the food was only fair. I had ribs for $21.50 on the special and was told that they were backribs. For this price I expected a full slab -- I only received half a slab. Sauce... More

Went here with a group on a Friday night recently for fish and had a great dinner ! We all had the fish and all of us were very pleased. They have a great selection of tap beers that they brew right there, and a full bar. The prices are reasonable for a nice place like this in a tourist... More

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
