Very good fish fry, with lakeside garden.

Tremendously busy (and thus noisy in the dining room) on Friday evening, but worth the wait for the fish-fry - I had the perch, which was excellent. There are tables outside at the back overlooking the lake, and a grassy lawn leading down to the lake - an ideal place to wait for a table... read more

There are tables outside at the back overlooking the lake, and a grassy lawn leading down to the lake - an ideal place to wait for a table! Definitely well above average.

4 of us stopped in after a day of fishing. Needed to park our cars towing boats on road. Small, family friendly restaurant. Staff was great. We had 2 Thursday night fish fries, one was perch and one of haddock, both were very good. Friends had the full order of BBQ ribs and the chicken stir fry, both were good.... More

I've often wondered why the parking lot is always full on Friday night at moondance. Well we stopped and figured it out. The fish fry is excellent. I had the cod and my wife had the perch. The whole dinner was great. I'd highly recommend this place. Best fish fry I've had in a while !!!

Always come here for their Friday fish fry. Always get the cod with fries. NEVER disappointed. We have tried many other fish Fry's and we use Moondance as the place to beat - so far nobody can compete. Always bring our lake house guests here and are always pleased with the food and service. Staff is always friendly! Gloria is... More

We had eaten dinner here MANY years ago and for some reason, never headed back. The "new" owners took over in 2000. We stopped here for lunch. Only one complaint and it is unique to bikers: the parking lot, which is ample sized could/should be redone. Bikers do NOT like gravel on top of blacktop as it does not help... More

My fish fry was excellent and my wife enjoyed her sandwhich as we ate on the deck overlooking the lake at sunset. Our waitress was very friendly. It was obvious she enjoyed her work and serving customers. Drinks were good and service quick. Not the fanciest place but what you think of when looking for a northwoods bar on a... More

Owners , Brad and Gloria, serve up fine food and friendly local atmosphere. Have tried many of the menu items and have not yet been disappointed . On weekends, they serve broasted chicken which is awsome as well as the Friday night fish frys.

Moondance is a popular restaurant located actually in Sugar Camp Wi which is halfway between Rhinelander and Eagle River on Hwy 17. Their fish fry is excellent as is the huge portions of broasted chicken on Saturdays. We've been going there for years all through the year, but especially during the snowmobile season. Their brandy old-fashions are my favorite drink,... More
