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. The dining room was not overly busy. We had one of the wait staff pass us on his way to bar and he mumbled... More

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. Wow, the setting at Holiday Acres is picture perfect. As we walked in, we realized that this was not your average restaurant. We arrived as they opened on a... More

Chef Tom does an outstanding job of preparing gourmet food in a beautiful atmosphere. When in season, the Parmesan crusted sea bass is to die for. Another favorite is Pork Athena.

Had dinner there 7/28/13. Excellent. I'd give it a fifth star if the otherwise tasty cream of chicken soup had not been a bit too salty. (For some reason North Woods restaurants seem to love sodium in their soups.) The walleye was very tender, no bones, and tasty, best I've ever had. Service first-rate. I'll come back often.

We go here every year and the food is always excellent, the ambiance great and the service is usually good. Sadly, this year, while the food was still good, the service was slow and generally unprofessional, not what I had come to expect from a relatively expensive place. Hopefully it was only a one-night fluke, but the server knew little... More
