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

Food is OK. Doesn't take credit cards. I stopped going when televisions were put throughout restaurant and waitress wouldn't turn off even though we were only people in room.

My brother and sister-in-law from Ohio stop here on their way to the twin cities--not to see me as much as to go to the Tamarack! We sit in the back room and do not even need menus anymore. A cold one and a mushroom burger. The best! p.s. They make excellent pizza as well ;-)

Nice old style tavern atmosphere. We had the pizza, and watched the grill cook preparing some nice looking hamburgers. Friendly staff, reasonable prices, good cold draft beers, we liked it. Pizza was tasty and service was pretty quick. Bring cash, no credit cards. We ate here while camping at Indian Trails.

They have good food, and I like their pizza but they burn it every time( Hate burnt crust) they have great tenderloin steak sandwiches.I love the lasagna. The seating is limited and it its kinda dark in there. Other than that we like it.

We went with seven people, the building is very small, but they accommodated us at the bar. They lost my order due to a change in cooks and put heavy peppers on a sandwich that was supposed to have mild peppers. Other than that our party was satisfied. It really was the best tenderloin sandwich I've ever eaten and my... More

We like their burgers, although we have found a place that has better ones recently. These guys still come in second for their burgers...a good pick. It is a small place. Sometimes people are seated rear to rear. ....Friendly waitstaff. Parking can be full at times...

Can't go wrong with the pizza, lots of cheese. Best burgers around and the steak sandwich is excellent. It isn't fine dining to be sure, but for a friendly small town meal with bar service, you can't do better. They ground their beef fresh daily and grill burgers on griddle. Best with grilled mushrooms, onions, and swiss. Not the most... More
