My husband and our two little boys always take a trip to Bayfield and have seen the sign for this restaurant many times. We finally visited and were glad we did. The food is beyond delicious, the wait staff were all friendly and welcoming to two little boys, made sure that they had something available they could eat. Even brought... More

When we planned our getaway to Bayfield, we knew we wanted to visit Wild Rice and we were not disappointed! It is a little pricy, but not to be missed! After we parked & before we even entered the restaurant we were taken by how gorgeous it is! It has a beautiful wood walkway that leads to the main entrance... More

We ate here the day before our wedding weekend, and the food was great, wine spectacular and the staff friendly. It was a great experience, and fantastic way to start our marriage.

A difficult review, so many great elements, but still short of perfect. The service is superb, from the greeting upon entering, to the manager Randy, bartender Rose, and all of the layers of waitstaff. The cocktail and wine list are fairly priced and extensive. We ate appetizers in the bar one night, the sazerac and old fashioned were excellent; the... More

We had heard about Wild Rice Restaurant for years, having vacationed on Madeline Island for years, but we had never been able to get away to go to the restaurant. Once you're on the island, well, who wants to leave? Nonetheless, we decided THIS year was going to be the year to finally go to Wild Rice. It was fabulous.... More

The restaurant is outside Bayfield, WS and Bayfield isn't a big place--pop. 400 or so. It's not easy to find on your own so be sure to ask directions. The restaurant is set in the woods and you won't see another building from the restaurant. You will be wowed by the architecture of the building, and by the spaces created... More

I had read almost all of the reviews and I was so excited to dine here. He is what I loved; I loved the setting, the style, the decor, the "old lady" props, the lay out, all of the architecture, etc.. The service was excellent as well and very attentive. My husband loved everything he had; the duck breast /... More

The building itself was interesting in its unique architectural design. Be sure to tke the time to really check it out. My husband tried the salmon, and I had the scallops. Both fish entrees were fresh and perfectly seasoned. The wait staff was professional, friendly and attentive. What's not to love? We had a wonderful evening.
