I had a few nice breakfasts here at the Thorpedo Restaurant. The service and food were very good. It is located very close to the motel and gas stations. It is right off Hwy 29 in Thorp. I would recommend it to friends.

The Thorpedo is along U.S. HWY 29, about 90min east of Minneapolis and 2.5hrs west of Green Bay. Atmosphere is a typical family restaurant. I had the perch dinner for lunch and it was oustanding. The batter is crisp yet light...probably a beer batter. Cole slaw was very good with not so much sauce as most places drown the slaw... More

The name is funny...the service and food Great! On the way to Escanaba MI, we stopped at the Thorpedo for a quick lunch. My companion had the Patty Melt, on marble rye, with lots of onions (onions make any meal great!). It was a fresh and satisfying sandwich. My choice was the Strawberry Short cake. The size of this treat... More

We were traveling across the state of WI on Hwy. 29, so before we left we searched online for a couple of options for restaurants. This one seemed to have good reviews, so we tried it and it was exactly as described. Very clean, good food, great home made soup and reasonable priced. It just has the feel of mid-western... More

We get back and forth to the Twin Cities quite often and many times plan our trip to be in Thorpe, WI, near a meal time. The Thorpedo Restaurant is your quintessential family owned highway restaurant. No, it is not a greasy spoon but, a great little restaurant. On our way through we have many times had the great, varied... More

If you are looking for a non fast food restaurant to stop at about half way between the Twin Cities in MN and Green Bay, WI, this would be a good choice. The food here is pretty good. They have an interesting "twist" in that most meals come with a cup of home made soup as the default side in... More

The Thorpedo Restaurant is a nice clean Restaurant along HWY 29 between Eau Claire and Wausau, WI. It has been there ever since I was young and we always went there because it was open 24 hrs in the past. Now it has changed a bid, was remodeled nicely and still serves great food for a reasonable price! The breakfasts... More
