The excellent reviews and restaurant's Web site drew my friend and me to this restaurant. I'm so glad I made reservations to arrive in the daylight, as even driving up to and walking into the building is a treat (don't miss the art on the grass roof). A perfect meal to me is the right combination of food, service and... More

We enjoyed a great Happy Hour visit. The bar is very roomy with delicious martini's, wine, beer and s full bar. The atmosphere is beautiful Bayfield, with views of the lake! They had free appetizers to sample during Happy Hour and comfortable seating.

Amazing restaurant tucked in to a beautiful Lake Superior setting! Somewhat pricey, but it was our anniversary and well worth the cost. The artwork amazing, and it was cool that you could see right in to the kitchen to watch food being prepared. Bonus was the month of October for $40 we got a three course meal of either lamb...

My husband and I ate at Wild Rice during a recent fall color visit to Bayfield, WI. We were very impressed by the professionalism of the wait staff and the quality of the food. The décor is definitely elegant and up scale with an emphasis on "artsy" with good use of splashes of color. We each had the scallops and... More

The Wild Rice restaurant is the ultimate dinning experience. Food, presentation and staff are the best.

My husband and I went to the Wild Rice restaurant our last evening in Bayfield. We did not want a full meal so chose to sit in the bar and have a glass of wine and appetizers. The food was amazing, unique and delicious. We loved the ambience and our server, Rose. We would highly recommend this place.

We had no idea what we were in for on our visit to the Wild Rice Restaurant. The location was breathtaking and every detail was well thought-out. We wished we'd come earlier to explore more of the beautiful patio and all this beautiful modern property had to offer in its gorgeous natural setting! Our dinner started out with a surprise...

My 'A' list of restaurants is very short. And typically, it takes two or more visits to make the list. Wild Rice makes my 'A' list on the first ever visit. Friends have visited Bayfield Wisconsin but, did not go to Wild Rice. Their loss. This is an excellent restaurant on all fronts. Huge property, great artwork in the form... More
