Nice place to meet, but not the best we've had.

We were looking for a place to meet my brother in Northern Wisconsin so we didn't have to drive all the way to the U.P. We agreed on Rhinelander and did some on-line research on this site to find a restaurant. We decided this one was most likely to provide what we needed; good food and a friendly... read more

We meet some family members here for pie. The staff was willing to help us and wait on us. The pie is not exceptional, but does come with a lot of cool whip on top. We didn't have any entree here, but they may have been better that another Rhinelander restaurant. We might eat here again.

We stayed at Pelican Lake for a week in July. Went for dinner twice, both nights dinner was above average. Our waitress was fantastic both nights. The host/owner checked on us and seemed to really care how our meal was. Would go again.

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... 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.
