“Excellent Food, Service and Variety for A Group of 14”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Our extended family of 14 dined here last week and everyone was pleased. They start you off with a nice plate of appetizers, followed by delicious soup and salad, and a wide choice of entrees.
I had a veal dish with Gruyere cheese, tomato and onion. Unusual and excellent.Others in our group enjoyed the duck, rack of lamb, walleye and stuffed walleye. It's not easy to please everyone in our group, but Guides Inn did it. And it was nice to meet the chef/owner.

“Love the menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Great menu and great food. The service was awesome. The chef came out often to talk with customers. Excellent walleye. Every table gets an appetizer platter which is big.

“Fine Dining in Relaxed Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

Go Hungry! Your meal is served in courses - not all at once - which I really liked. Be careful not to fill up on the appetizers. Leave room for dinner. The food is plentiful and rich! It was so good, I wasn't able to eat it all. The chef came out to chat with us and check to make sure we were all satisfied. That impressed me. Our server was super friendly, answered all our questions with a smile and checked on us to make sure our needs were met (refills on drinks, dessert, etc.) Loved the beautiful decor and we sat at a table with a that window looked out over the gardens. It was a bit pricey, but you got what you paid for and no one left hungry. If we ever visit the area again, would definitely go there again.

“Always good ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

This place can always be counted on for a good meal. And the menu is not just the standard northwoods food. On my recent trip I went there again and was pleased as always. And the people are very very friendly.
