My husband and brought a couple to Pettenwell Pub. We've told them about the twin sisters who work there. They are very nice and make a great burger! However this time we went I asked for a Brandy Old Fashioned. The woman bartending barked at me " THIS IS A BEER BAR"! OK then we had a beer and left.... More

If you are in the area and want great pizza with an adult beverage or just a place to stop on the 4 wheeler with friends, Petenwell Pub is a must stop. Great view of the second largest lake in Wisconsin while you wait, inside or outside in the gazebo. Always a personal favorite of mine when I am in... More

Pizza was terrific! Everything ingredient was fresh. They did not hold back on the toppings. This is my favorite pizza.

The food is always good. Pizza's are excellent, but they have the BEST patty melt you will ever have! (at least for me!) They have alcoholic beverages, but not "mixers". But, I found plenty of choices to pick from, and everyone was pleased. Staff is very friendly. Very small place, so weekends could be very crowded. We ride our ATV... More

We had a large pizza here one night. I thought the pizza was great. The crust was crispy, and the pizza hot. The price was OK split between two guys. The service was friendly, but seemed a bit forced. The place is small and only had like four tables and an 8 seat bar area. When locals are here, the... More

Excellent pizza. The best in the area. They have been serving consistenly good food for years and it's a homey and very friendly place looking out at Lake Petenwell. Their burgers are also very high quality and my favorite is the Patty Melt - best one I've ever had. Appetizers are great - corn fritters served with honey butter. Awesome.

We rented a pontoon from them and ordered 6 big pizzas. We were happy with it all. Cannot wait to go back. Friendly staff.
