Another fabulous dinner at Holiday Acres. The fresh Ahi tuna, flown in, is like eating at a great restaurant at a large city. If you want to save the time and expense of leaving the Northwoods for fine dining, Holiday Acres is the place.

Excellent food -- the buffet was terrific, with a wide range of choices (including non-meat options). The bloody mary was incredible, the desserts delicious. Extremely reasonable prices, helpful and friendly staff. Highly recommended.

Set a bit off the beaten path on the outskirts of Rhinelander, this restaurant is one of the areas best. The atmosphere is "elegant rustic" with linens on the table, beautiful Northwoods setting, and varied dinner menu. The service is great..we did not, on this trip, get the pennies to make a wish in the fountain when we left. It... More

We have gone to Holiday Acres for our family vacation for around 30 years. Each year, our last night at the resort is "lodge night" when we dine in the Three Coins Restaurant. It is an evening we all anticipate with relish. The friendly wait staff greet us with a smile. We enjoy the buffet and the warmth of the... More

I did write a review with my resort review, but realized it might be better served by coming here and doing the same. We stayed at the resort August 2-5. After reading your reviews I was highly anticipating eating at the Three Coins. We arrived on 8/2 with our party of 7 and were brought to a table in the... More

Party of 7, sat right down to our table to be greeted immediatly by our server. Good drinks, reasonably priced. Had one buffet, two pork athena, one smoked beef loin, one alfredo and one ahi tuna. Everyone raved but buffet items a little dried out. Dessert- cheesecake divine. Only good place in town to have a wonderful meal!

3 girlfriends (we've known each other for almost 40 years) together for a Friday night dinner in beautiful Northern Wisconsin. I had the buffet because I wanted to have both fried and baked fish AND also sample other offerings. Everything was tasty and hot (I like my food hot.) One friend had pan-fried pike ... said it was very very... More

Our party of 3 visited on a Wednesday night - 9/4/13. We did not make reservations and arrived shortly before 6PM. Upon our arrival, there was no hostess at the hostess stand and 2 wait staff.

We ate 2 days at the restaurant and had some of the best food I've eaten in ages. The steak was cooked perfectly. The ono special was incredible and also cooked perfect. The ahi tuna salad and burgers were also awesome. Simplistic elegance at a great price with great people.

We visited this restaurant on a recent trip to Rhinelander for a bike tour. This restaurant was listed as one having "American" food so we decided to give it a try.
