Moondance is located north of Rhinelander, Wisconsin in the small town of Sugar Camp. Our good friends from Three Lakes, recommended Moondance and said they loved it. They have a full menu and some great looking 1/2 pound burgers. Thursday and Friday are Fish Fry nights. Haddock, Cod or Lake Perch. It was Thursday and I chose the Haddock, my... More

Based on other reviews, was excited to go here for the fish fry. Had both cod and perch. Ordinary at best. Cole slaw was good. French fries a bit limp. Would not go back.

The best fish dinner in the North and maybe in all the Midwest. Roasted red potatoes, great cole slaw and fast service. Get there early on Fridays as it is always crowded. Not in Rhinelander but in little Sugar Camp (where the movie The Giant Spider Invasion was made, believe it or not). Right on the highway to the left... More

We eat here annually during our annual family weekend. They are known for their fish fry, which never disappoints. My kids really like the clam chowder, too. I like to eat healthier, so I typically order the baked haddock. It's ok, but each year I ask the, if they could add some Cajun seasoning, and they never do.

Moondance is located between Eagle River and Rhinelander and is a year round favorite of the locals. It has a small outdoor deck that faces Mill Lake. It has the BEST fish fry in the Northwoods. Fortunately, they offer their fish fry on both Thursday and Friday. It fills up quickly on Friday, but Gloria, the owner, is a master... More

All are excellent. and the best tartar sauce for the fish. it must be homemade. We always find a way to get here for fish fry every visit. They have fish on... More
