My favorite pizza place went out of business, and tired of Pizza Hut, I decided to try Tamarack's pizza. I have been driving by, but hAve never stopped. The place was old and dingy. I saw grossness under the are where the bartenders were deep frying. I got the pizza and it was all thin crust, but pretty good. Not... More

They have the best burgers, there meat is ground fresh daily, there the best ! I have to be honest the pizza is OK, nothing to complain about or to rave about. If you want a great burger this is the place.

We just stopped in to the Tamarack to pick up a gift card today. An FYI for customers, they only accept cash or check. The food is worth a stop at an ATM on the way.

We were told about this place from a bartender at Cascade Mtn. He said it's a tavern, but has a seating area so it's okay for families. It's actually an old Railroad card made into a tavern...old and filled with personality. Had great pizza, burgers and salads! We will head back there again when we're in the area.

We happened upon Tamarack when visiting Portage because we were looking for pizza late in the evening. It is now one of our favorite places - - great pizza and burgers and very friendly staff! This is definitely a must place to stop when you are in the area!

This is a cute local establishment. I love the stain glass windows and wooden tables and benches. The food is well priced, five dollars for a cheeseburger which is quiet yummy. They only accept cash or check.

Cozy northwoods decor and fantastic pizza makes this one our favorite stops when we drive back and forth from our summer place. Full bar with a nice selection of craft beers available. Daily food and drink specials and friendly service. What more could you ask for?

I've been eating at this restaurant for years. I am on Weight Watchers, and when I have the hankering for a good juicy bar burger, I want the food to be worth the fat and calories I'm consuming. This place has the best seasoned grill, it's tough to beat. They also have a very good thin crust pizza. The place... More
