Best Pizza

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... read more

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

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.
