Wonderful Local Restaurant/Bar

The Tin Plate (a.k.a. The Hitching Post) opened the first of July under new owners who have done a nice job of remodeling the former Hitching Post. Atmosphere is warm and friendly with outside dinning available. Staff are attentive and outgoing. We visited the restaurant twice in the last 10 days... read more

Gave this place a try, by reading the other reviews. Very limited menu. Other reviews stated they had steak sandwiches, broasted chicken. Well maybe just on the day they decided to eat there. Completely overpriced, Husbands cheeseburger was 8.50, cold bun, and he said it tasted off. Bill was under 30.00, but the atmosphere here is just bar. Their menu... More

Just learned yesterday the owners of the White Dog Black Cat Restaurant on South Broadway in Green Bay have purchased this restaurant. It will be called the Tin Plate at the Hitching Post. While I have not eaten here, the Excellent ranking refers to the White Dog Black Cat food it is fabulous! Homemade soups, delicious mushroom caps, terrific tomato... More

After being open just a few months and proving to be people who cared about their customers and worked hard to make a difference, a pipe burst in the sub-zero cold early December weather and the building owner won't fix it. So the "Hitch" is, sadly, closed. We wish Tim and Christina all the best, whatever they do... they are... More

This place is awesome. Great fish, excellent burgers and the perfect family friendly atmosphere! A must visit every time I come back to the area. Excited to see how the new owners are doing. We miss you Mark and Amy! This is one of my favorite places ever to watch live music.

Evidently the Hitching Post has been closed but we at there Oct 2014 and was told they had been open for about a month. It looks like it's a young couple who were working hard to do a good job and for being opened a month they were doing well. We were there for breakfast and got referred from someone... More

We stumbled across the Hitching Post while on a motorcycle ride on a hot July day. The A/C felt great and the beer was ice cold, with a better than average selection. Sandwiches were great & service was fast & friendly. Good crowd for a weekday afternoon - friendly atmosphere. The patio area looked nice, though we only stayed outside... More

Love the ambiance. Classic north woods decor. Great pizza Nd. Burgers. We pick up 4 pizzas and they can only make two at a time but always kept warm. Enjoy grabbing a beer while waiting. Have not seen live music here but want to come back. Highly recommend and if you are at Glidden lodge, swing over.

Cozy neighbor bar (a local "Cheers"). Wonderful stone fireplace blazing during the winter. Their perch on Fridays is unsurpassed. Just wonderful. Amy and Mark are friendly. They even have food for take out if you are staying at the Glidden Lodge. Don't miss this classic Wisconsin bar with unusually good food.
