Restaurant was recommended by the hotel staff and turned out to be a great choice. The Cafe and Pub appears to be a small place from the parking lot, but reveals a very large restaurant with an extensive menu, one that features locally grown food. My husband had one of the seasonal specials, pheasant, which was served with a tasty... More

The staff at our hotel recommended this restaurant, and we're glad we dined there. I had a seasonal dish of butternut squash ravioli and grilled chicken, which was delicious, while my husband had the roast beef French dip sandwich, also excellent. I especially appreciated the generous glass of wine! We'll visit again if we're ever in the area.

This is a Rhinelander old stand bye. The cuisine Up North does not vary all that much from one place to another. So this is no way a stand out. It is dark paneled and great on a winter day but less so on a lovely summer day. Our 13 year old grandson loved it.

Try the french onion soup...yum! We had the Greek salad I had the Greek chicken dish; my wife had the cheesy chicken dish (sorry, I don't remember the exact menu names) All the food...and the service was great! Prices are reasonable considering the serving sizes and quality. Also had a fabulous Brandy Alexander...made with real ice cream.

My wife and I took two of our sons here for our anniversary. Our sons are both in their 30's and couldn't wait to get out of there because of the atmosphere, and music definitely geared toward a much, much older generation. The only reason I'm giving it a 3 out of 5 is because of the atmosphere. If I... More

Always good, last night was no exception. It was a Thursday night and business was brisk---a good sign for a restaurant. Had liver and onions (can't get that everywhere) but avoid the the merlot and have beer instead--this is Rhinelander after all!

The Pub offers an average menu at an average price. Friday fish fries are rather busy but rarely requires waiting. The interior is rather dark due to dark wood paneling. Service is also "average"

My wife and I took my sister and my cousin on a camping trip to a secluded property on a private lake in the great north woods of Wisconsin. We were in our Coleman pop-up and woke up to a rainy day. After my wife cooked delicious pancakes and sausage for breakfast, we took off to visit the great resort... More
