A neat place to eat

This cozy club has a great atmosphere with a friendly staff, and a nice menu. The carrots that are served with each dinner are out standing,and so is the homemade soup. We dined with another couple and each ordered something different. Three of the four meals were very good ( two types of steak and... read more

We visit Rhinelander periodically and stop here to eat and we never have had a bad meal. I stopped this time and really wanted to objective about the experience. First off our old fashions were great! Hit the spot! I ordered rib eye and my wife had stuffed shrimp. Both meals were to die for! Spot on flavor and taste.... More

If you don't mind paying a bit more for quality food, dine here with confidence. The owner, "Sue", usually offers three specials and they are always unique and outstanding. A fish dish is always offered and is wonderful. However, the ribs are a no brainer option paired with a twice baked potato. The setting is a true Northwoods experience! Love... More

If you like shrimp, you will not be disappointed in the "Grilled Prawns". Absolutely some of the most delectable prawns I've ever eaten. My husband's & friend's BBQ ribs were delicious & fall off the bone tender. I can hardly wait for a return visit. I'll definitely be ordering the prawns again!

Shady Sue's, Rhinelander, WI This is a very small place and aesthetically, more of a tavern than a restaurant. There is no separation between the U-shaped bar and the 10 - 12 close-quarter tables that surround it on 3 sides. There was also no separation between the front door and the service area. Ingress is directly into the dining space,... More

We've been here before and never felt the disappointment that we did last night. We ordered an entree to share. There was nothing on the menu nor were we told when we asked for an extra plate that it would be an extra $4 but it sure was on the bill. Usually when we share a entree and pay for... More

Good drinks and good food. The crackers with cheese and bread snacks help meet our minimum standards for Wisconsin supper club. Everybody was quite happy and we will be back. We could even be back this week.

We were hoping our second dining experience at Shady Sue's would be as pleasant as the first and we're happy to report it was! Atmosphere, food, value and bartender Ted are all factors in our five star rating. Loved my pan fried walleye and HOT, crispy fries!
