We stop in at Richards about once a month for breakfast. They are quick to serve and have a very friendly staff. We are always happy that they remember all of the quirks that my "high maintenance" husband enjoys. 2% milk with his coffee. Peanut-butter with his toast, etc. I personally love the variety. Some of my favorites include the... More

We ate at the restaurant on Saturday night. Had prime rib, which was very good. BBQ Ribs had a little too much sauce, but fell off the bone. Salad bar was pretty good. A little expensive, but its difficult to find prime rib in this area. Service was very good. We did not stay at the motel, but noted that... More

Chicken dumpling soup is my favorite but their version was soooo salty. The broiled fish was very good as were the warm dinner rolls. Restaurant staff was very friendly & attentive. Came back another day and enjoyed a very good brat. They are located right on the ATV trail which is why we stopped. Know nothing about the hotel.

This place has been under several owners in the last decade or so and, although the last visit had not turned out well, after being closed for quite awhile, Richard's has once again reopened under new ownership, so we decided to drive out and give it a check. It was a beautiful Spring day as we drove down and we... More

We stayed overnight here on a snowmobile trip (rode from Rhinelander, WI to Dunbar, stayed the night). The motel is just that - a motel. It is old, the bathroom in our room had pink tile and pink Formica counter top. The beds were comfortable, there was a tiny TV and a coffee maker. Since we were hardly in the... More

Was there on a Saturday around 8:30 AM with a group of 6 people, it took an 45 minutes to get our food, and was not very well prepared, some was cold. There was one other group of 5 in the place, so not too busy. Orders were mixed up and refills on coffee and drinks were slow. I know... More

The Motel & Supper Club are back open. Randy & Lynne Sippel are the new owners. Great people originally from the Plymouth, WI area. Randy & Lynne have been business owners for 20+ years. Lynne has been in the Restaurant Bar trade for 20+ years. Please stop in and say Hi.

This is very sad. He was a nice man who ran a decent business. I hope someone buys this place as gets it operational again. It is a very convenient location to the ATV trails. The local gas station also left, bu the bar down the street is opening gas pumps.
