Madeline Island is a lovely spot and community in the Apostle Islands. This pub and restaurant had what I consider above well average food and drink for a little community. The sunset view as grand and the fireplace was a nice touch on a cool fall evening. Pizza was great as were the appetizers. All in our part enjoyed their... More

I think this place is hyped because there is no competition on this island. Yes, the mussels and pizza are really good...super delicious. But that's it. Don't bother with rest of menu. Pub itself is dark and dank and offers barely any water view despite sitting right on the lake. Not a place comfortable to just "hang out " for... More

Unimaginative menu. Made to get out quickly and relatively cheaply. It is a cute place and in a cute setting.

Every year we make a point of stopping in to the Pub for their mussels in cream sauce. Even though it is listed as an appetizer, the portion is sufficient for a meal. Year after year they do not disappoint. A craft brew from the bar and a table overlooking the big lake (Lake Superior) round out the experience. It's... More

Amazingly good and varied cuisine, considering the remoteness of the venue. We like it so much we came back every evening to try something else. Best food on the island.

Having read some great reviews here on Trip Advisor, we decided to give the Pub a try for lunch. When we walked in, we headed through the dining room to the bar area. It's a cute restaurant, and the view of the lake was amazing. I wish I could say the same for the food. The two of us ordered... More

We actually ate after hours at the new food stand on the road that this pub opened. It was awesome! We had one of the best grilled cheese sandwiches ever! Goat cheese, cheddar and tomatoes, grilled up perfectly. It's hard to find food after nine on Madeline Island and I hope this outpost makes it!

This dinner was a cut above the other dinner options available along the main road in La Pointe. The name "The Pub" is misleading; the menu is a complete dinner menu, as you would see in a nice restaurant. The menu is extensive and the options we ordered were well prepared. I got the lobster caprese salad. Our boys got... More

We just ate here an hour ago and I'm very pleased with my dinner experience. The view we sat in overlooks the bay which is amazing. The food is average but understand I'm not complaining here. It is not fair to compare it with the high end dining/cuisine that we sometimes come to expect. I'm sure they try their very... More
