Based on the reviews others had given Shady Sue's on Trip Advisor we went there for dinner and were not disappointed. Most of our party had hamburgers and thought they were good, I had the Ahi Tuna with risotto and asparagus and as one of the prior reviewers commented it was fabulous! The only downside was getting there based on... More

We went here for dinner while on vacation. We walked into the small bar/restaurant and everyone stopped and turned and looked at us. We were quickly seated at a table. We had a wonderful dinner. All food was good and warm. The kids enjoyed their food. The desserts were delicious.

Sue (the cook) is an exceptional cook and has the ability to prepare and present fantastic cuisine! We found this amazing gem of a restaurant last year and were blown away by the quality and taste of the food. We returned again this year while on vacation and continue to be overwhelmed by her cooking and food presentation. Our hats... More

Wow! Never expected the incredible meal all four of us received from this small restaurant. It has been over 4 weeks since our visit and we have been thinking of it still. Ahai tuna was perfect! My husband's steak was mouth-watering. And since our meals were so incredible, we ordered dessert. OMG!!! Do it!

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!
