Cozy family atmosphere.

The first impression when i walked in is that everybody know each other, because they were starring at the out of towner like me. Staff is friendly and quick. Food served hot and fast. You can have a good view of the outside from every where you sit. Parking is convenient and not crowded.

We were in Rhinelander on January 4, 2016 for a dentist appointment and to visit close family. They suggested this restaurant because they had been there several times and enjoyed it. The food was awesome and the owner is hands-on. He greets all cuntomers and is always filling coffee cups.

We have eaten here on many occasions and had good food yesterday was a complete let down the salad starter was great the soup was warm at best and the baked chicken was so salty it was cooked well and tender but so much salt if we wanted it like that we could have added it what a let-down after...

The restaurant was decorated very festively decorated. The entire wait staff worked well together so you never had to wait for anything! Food was delicious with large portions and great prices. Would highly recommend if you are in the Rhinelander area. Enjoy!

For the longest time if I asked a local resident to recommend a place to eat l would not get one until this restaurant opened. If you're tired of fast food this is the best choice. Nothing fancy just good food, reasonable price, clean with a friendly staff.

WHAT HAPPENED? My family and I went there today to celebrate my Dad's birthday for lunch. The place was packed Noon on Friday- had to wait for a table ( which is usually the sign of a good restaurant) but food was just plain bad. All three of us just made it to our homes before a bathroom was needed(... More

We were in Rhinelander last weekend to stock up on supplies for the winter. That was obviously a good excuse to try one of the local eateries. We've driven around in the past looking for places to eat and never had much luck. This time I decided to check Trip Advisor first. So. we decided to give the Friendship House... More

The best place in Rhinelander Wisconsin to eat! Fast, friendly, fabulous food! The restaurant is a refurbished Wendy's joint on the outside but don't be fooled. It is a clean and busy place. Hot delicious food is served very quickly and the wait staff, are friendly and work hard to make your dining experience the best it can be! Starting... More

This is such a sad review for us to give, because we love the Owners because they are really involved in community and show great heart and love at every Thanksgiving Day with free food for all! Food quality has just gone down hill- Owner needs to get his staff re-energized and set a standard way food must be prepared.... More
