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.

Their Friday night perch dinners are second to none. Nice, northern Wisconsin atmosphere in this all log walled restaurant. Nice owners.

I love a good bar/grill. Not the red light district type. The kind you can bring your family to, has character (no strip malls bars) and is clean. This one is a REAL north-woods bar&grill. Starts with the real log house(?) it was made from. Add to that an all grilled and deep fried menu, serve with ice cold beer... More
