Above average food, good value, and good service for a late mother's day dinner

We stopped in for dinner on mother's day with our daughter and son-in-law who live in Rhinelander. The decor is typical for "old school" Wisconsin supper clubs, and is warm and welcoming, traditional if a bit dated. The service was very good and the food was quite good. The ladies had the lobster... read more

I have had good meals here but this was not one of them. I don't know if it's because it was a Sunday, but the food was horrible. Blue cheese dressing was mayo with two small pieces of cheese. Garlic steak was tough, looked like it was cut with a saw, the mushrooms were so tough I couldn't chew it,... More

I've been coming to "the Pub" for fifty years. It was part of the highlights of a trip to the big city of Rhinelander, that always included a stop at Woolworth's, just up the block in those days, and lunch with a piece of pie at "the Cafe". In all the years I've dined here, I have never, ever been... More

They need more variety on their menu with food choices that can be afforded by people in this economy. The Décor is so out of date and it is really dark and hard to see. Because of the layout- your server is hard to get when you want them- so order two beverages right away.

A very welcoming, upscale Central Wisconsin Supper Club. Very abundant portions, lots of locals, very friendly. Owner was on site. Great brandy old-fashioned drinks. Large menu selection of basic American dishes. Inviting and relaxing atmosphere.

The food is always good, if not exciting, but the atmosphere is depressing red and black, dark wood and brick - in an old-fashioned (read 70's) style. Since there are no windows it is even darker. Old icky carpeting doesn't help matters and the women's restroom is years past its due date for a remodel. Careful with the water in... More

We stopped here for lunch as it seemed to be the only non-fast food restaurant that was open at the time. The menu had a large selection that even included healthy items. My husband had the French Dip sandwich and I had a fresh whitefish sandwich. It was served on a bakery style roll with lettuce and tomato. It came... More

After a mechanical problem delayed us in Rhinelander, we ended up here for lunch. They offered my wife a great vegetarian Eggs Benedict, and she loved it. I had a Parmesan Chicken sandwich that was very good. Great atmosphere...older style...excellent service...reasonable pricing. Next time through it's a must.

I always get the cheeseburger and it is perfectly done. My mom gets the small Greek salad with anchovies. Which is a great portion if you do not want to be over stuffed.
