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.

Proprietors Mark and Amy are super nice, friendly people doing a great job running a nearly 100 year old bar and grill all on their own. They have an incredible selection of beers for a relatively remote bar. The food is perfect for a bar and grill. We love this place!!!

This is just a little bar with deep fried bar food and pizza only. They do have a good assortment of beer. There are picnic tables outside. Nothing fancy, very laid back. Two times when we were there, they closed the kitchen early in order have a band play in the bar. If you don't like deep fried food or... More

Every time we are visiting we eat at the Hitching Post for lunch and always order pizza one night. They make excellent thin crust pizza...crispy crust, good sauce, sausage and other trimmings.
