Went for lunch. Our presence was not even acknowledged for 15 minutes so we left. The food was good last year but we won't ever go back.

Great old-fashioned tasting burgers on a soft bun. Soup is even better! Go on Wednesday night for "build-a burger". Fries are fresh. Also serve Poorboys, as the name would suggest. Outdoor decor and a stuffed bear that shares candy.

What a delightful "find" in northwest Wisconsin. We were heading for another restaurant in Spooner when a downpour started. So we dashed into this vey inviting establishment. And we were very happy we did. Pillars is family run. The atmosphere is very north woodsy. The subs are top notch delicious. I had a half sub with a cup of soup... More

Wonderful little poor boy and other sandwich place in Spooner WI. Neat all wood interior with deer and fish mounted on the walls and a real north woods feel. Had a great poor boy sandwich with wonderful ham and bean homemade soup. Quick, friendly service rounded out the experience.

Pillars serves great sandwiches at very reasonable prices. The one third sandwich with a side of soup or French fries is plenty enough for lunch and under $5.

These southern subs can be pretty delicious if prepared well, and Pillers will not disappoint. Fabulous homemade bread and all the right proportions of all the right ingredients made this one of the best ever for us. And that says nothing of the incredible homemade Chicken and Rice soup we started with. My wife isn't even a soup person and... More

Stopped for take-out dinner after reading mostly positive reviews. We were anxious to get back to our campsite, as the rest of our group had arrived while we were on the road, so asked if our food could be made to go. Our very friendly waitress assured us this would be possible, but we could only order a poor boy,... More

Whenever we are near Spooner (once or twice a year), we have to have our lunch here. The sandwiches and soup are great, the atmosphere is friendly and upbeat and the people are welcoming and fun. Just sent a couple more folks there and we know they'll come back with rave reviews, too!
