Good food, classic supper club venue

Good food, bit pricey for what I got, but nice atmosphere. It holds a lot of people and gets loud, but that helped drown out the noise of our young kids.

What a wonderful place! My wife and I had a delightful dinner at Marty’s Place North last Sunday night. The large log cabin, located a few minutes north of Woodruff-Minocqua, has a magnificent interior- all exposed logs and warm wood. A wooden canoe hangs over the bar, several semi-circular booths with padded leather seats line one wall. A large fieldstone... More

My wife and I, and family have eaten at Marty's a number of times over the past 10 years, -- this last time was a bit of a disappointment. My food was luke warm at best, the garlic mashed potatoes were not even warm. My main dish, Chicken Cordon Blu was also barely warm, - should have stayed with duck... More

Great bar. Efficient and helpful staff. Nice atmosphere and decor. A Classic Wisconsin supper club with the relish trea! We always have a good experience here. Try the Steak Marsala.

Roast duck, makes you want to drool. Steaks always prepared to your liking. Love their sides and relish, all together you are well taken care of and leave happy.

Marty's Place North has been a birthday celebration tradition in our family for over 25 years. This visit was simply excellent! Our party of 4 adults had drinks in the bar before being seated (our choice) because we love the ambiance. Once seated, our waitress brought us the relish tray (carrots, celery, pate, cheese spread, crackers & dip) - very... More

We showed up for our reservation....and, yes, on weekends please do make reservations, and went to the bar for a drink until our table was ready. Drinks are very generous and fairly priced. After a few minutes we were shown to our table where we had a very good waitress. My husband had the duck special (Saturday night) and I... More

My wife and I are Minocqua residents and we dine at most of the areas better restaurants. As "regulars" our experience at Marty's has been consistently excellent. This is an old fashioned Wisconsin supper club with a comfortable northwoods decor. The bar is very attractive and inviting. The menu features great steaks, wonderful walleye prepared deep fried, broiled or pan... More

My wine tasted like vinager. I told the bartender the wine was bad. He stated "we opened it today". I said I can't drink this and asked for a different wine. Got my new wine but he charged me for both! He said "it's not our fault you don't like the wine". Been going there for over 25 years, spent... More

I am so sorry that the bartender charged you for your second glass of wine! It is not our policy at all! I made the bartender aware of this and his error! I assure you had I been aware of the situation you would have not been charged! Please accept my sincerest of apologies, and we hope this will not... More
