We ate the smelt platter there today. Not good, to say the least. The smelt used to be nice portions and delicious. The ones we had today were so skinny that you could barely tell if they were smelt strips or a French fry. I think they cut the smelt into strips so that it would look like you got... read more

July 6 and 8, 2015 My husband and I just arrived in Rhinelander on a chilly rainy evening. Chris greeted us and helped get us seated right away. Waitstaff are very attentive and kept our glasses full. I notices also that Chris made the rounds at all the tables and made sure all the customers were having a good dining... More

Tony the owner makes you feel welcome if he knows you. Food is good-not great, menu is amazing. The staff is good when management is there but often not so good when the cat is away. For the most part this is a great place for a lot of all kinds of people-kind of like a homey perkins.

We had lunch here Sunday. The place was packed but we were seated very quickly. We had coffee at the table immediately. They will not allow your coffee cup to run empty. Getting someone to take our order for food was a different story. We were patient because they were very busy. The food was worth the wait.

Cooks are good with special dietary needs on the fly. Seasoned wait staff very attentive to customers and they keep beverages full without even needing to be asked which is awesome. Wanted lemon for pepsi to hide the pepsi taste ( coke drinker) and they were back at the table in less than a minute. Needed Alfredo without garlic and... More
