I have a soft place in my heart for The Spot. When my parents were alive we used to go there, and I still do - several times a summer. I love that the owners are there and involved with the food, drinks, and service. The food is excellent, especially the beer battered seafood and walleye, which I heartily recommend.... More

The past few times we have been there the food is excellent and staff are friendly with excellent service. As stated the owners run the place and are always chatting to... More

At a family gathering with relatives from all over the country, this was a common comment. Iron River WI and the best steak you can ever have, good deal.

Had a decent meal but it was not worth the extraordinarily high price we paid. Wait-staff was attentive, but owners/management were having some sort of disagreement w/in ear shot. Not cool. We were disappointed after all the hype we'd heard. The shrimp everyone told me was "fabulous" was NOT. Overcooked, to salty. I know better than to order seafood so... More

Had a fantastic dinner at The Spot on a Friday night.We started with drinks and I had the Brandy Old Fashioned which was excellent. Tried the whitefish cream cheese appetizers and they were excellent. Both ordered the whiefish. My wife had deep fried and I had mine broiled. both were done to perfection. Service was very speedy, but not pushy... More

Our family has made at least one visit annually to The Spot, largely because of the view and an extensive menu. Our most recent visit on June 20 was a disappointment. Initially, we requested some bread to nibble while having drinks and considering appetizers and entrees. We were informed they no longer served bread. When informed that crackers would come... More

The Spot in Iron River, Wisconsin, is high on our list as we gather in Northern Wisconsin from Oregon, Washington and the District of Columbia. The food is great, the hosts are the best and the views of Busky Bay are superb. Whether we are here in the winter, spring, summer or fall, I always gather for dinner at The... More

After three visits in the past 6 months the last time was not good. It was the first time for my friend. She ordered the ribs and could not eat them, worst ever. I had the white fish and not clue why they would leave the skin on. The skin gives a fishy taste and its such an easy process... More

When in Iron River for the Blueberry Fest we happened upon this true Wisconsin super club. We were there on Sat and ordered the prime rib special. Done perfectly! Delightful dinner with beautiful lake view! Wait staff was excellent and friendly. This is really a destination!
