My parents, son, husband and I ordered food to take out at 7:45pm on Friday night. We were told it would be ready at 9:00pm. An hr and 15 minutes is a long time for 4 burgers and an order of boneless wi ya, but...we loved our burgers last time, so decided it was worth it. My husband went to pick it up at 9:05, and was told it would still be another 15 minutes. It ended up being another 25! So- 1 hour and 40 minutes! Ridiculous! If they were swamped it would be one thing, but they weren’t. Food was excellent- two Swiss olive burgers, 1 mushroom Swiss Burger, 1 plain cheeseburger, boneless wings, cheese curds, and onion rings.More

This place was great. Friendly relaxed atmosphere! Extremely warm and friendly staff. Food was excellent as were the drinks. We went on a Wednesday night and their friend chicken wings were awesome and came with a bunch of sauces. My husband loved loved loved the...BBQ Bourbon sauce. Shrimp was excellent as well will definitely go there again when we are in the area.More

We love the R Bar, and decided to take a couple of burgers and sides to go this past wknd. The service was great- and the burgers were excellent. I had a Swiss olive burger and my husband had a mushroom Swiss burger- both were...super moist and really flavorful. We also had cheese curds and onion rings- both excellent. Can’t wait to order again!More

We love the R Bar! My husband and I shared two of the best sandwiches we’ve had. Usually we get the burgers here because they are excellent. We decided to try the Philly sandwich which had lean sliced beef, sautéed onion and green peppers, and...provolone cheese served with Au jus to dip it in. We got one order of the sweet potato fries to share, which I have raved about in other reviews- they are simply the best anywhere! Soft on the inside and crispy on the outside. One of the owners- Steve- chatted with us awhile after we ate and I told him our love for those fries. He said the key to that is they dip them for a quick fry initially, and when a customer orders them, the cook throws them down in the oil again. We both thought these two sandwiches were two of the best we’ve had of each type. They were delicious and we didn’t leave a crumb!!! This is a must try when you are in the area. It has a warm woodsy atmosphere. We have a place in Chetek, and even though the address is Cameron, it’s just on the outskirts of Chetek- so real close!More

We were staying at Canoe Bay and did not have dinner reservations so the receptionist recommended the R Bar. The bar and restaurant is clean and typical for the area.But the staff is exceptional at providing very good service to their patrons. We found the...burger and fish fry on Friday to be very good. Fish was not greasy and my husband's burger was done perfectly.The sweet potato fries are a must, the chef drizzles a light glaze on top. We enjoyed the staff and food so much we went back on Saturday to try the pork rib special and we were not disappointed. Ribs were smoked perfectly and fork tender.If you are up that way it is a place you should try.More

My husband had the mushroom Swiss burger and loved it. He got the fresh cut fries which they make fresh here. They also have some of the best sweet potato fries around, and we’ve never had the fresh cut, so it was good to try...something different. They also have crispy fries as an option. I had the fish fillet sandwich which came with cheese, lettuce, and tarter sauce. It was average. I just got the chips and pickles it came with because I wasn’t hungry enough to upgrade to fries for $2. This is a very reasonable place as far as prices go. My sandwich was only $8. Jennifer provides good service and told us that because it was a Packer pregame we could get a bucket of 5 beers for $12. We were here for a long time, so got two buckets, but didn’t finish them all. It still came out to be a better price, so we were happy!More

My husband and I ate here around 5:30 on Saturday pm. We sat at the bar, which we sometimes do, but there are a couple dining rooms with tables, and we sometimes sit there as well. The burgers here are usually good. This visit my...husband got a burger with pepper jack cheese and ordered it medium well. It was cooked perfectly. I had the 1/2 rack of ribs which our bartender Ivy had recommended because she said they smoked them in house. It was also the special. It was $17 for 1/2 a rack, and $25 or so for a full rack. It came with 2 sides and a white roll, and I chose coleslaw and baked beans. The coleslaw and beans were excellent. The ribs were weird. 1/2 (the long way, which was super weird!) were very lean and dry. The other side was very fatty and moist. My husband commented that it was almost like they were fake. They tasted good though. We do like this place, so we will be back in the near future!More

We love going to the R Bar. Nice burgers and great wings on Wednesdays! All at a very reasonable price. One of our local favorites! I rate a restaurant five stars if it meets your expectations on all levels.
