The service is fantastic! Everyone goes above and beyond to make you feel like family. We go there with our kids and they will bring out coloring books and crayons. The menu has something for all members of the family. They serve the best Bloody...Mary in Wisconsin!More

A fine place to get a quick, good lunch. Friendly, casual, good value for the money. I eat there regularly. No disappointments.

We're part time residents so have been there many times. Owners and staff always treat everyone like family. You won't be disappointed

The owners and staff at Smiley's are great! The food was delicious and the drinks were good. It is like finding a neighborhood bar where you are welcome from day one. I liked that.

Came into Smiley's on snowmobile after going thru the ice. I was wet from the waist down and pretty shook up. The bartender (long hair, never did get her name) knew something was wrong right away. They gave me dry clothes, said they had a...dryer, were so concerned about me. I even got hugs. The owner of the Shamrock took me back to Tomahawk to get our truck & trailer. The bartender helped us find someone to get my sled out of the water. Everyone kept saying 'if you have to have a problem this is the place to have it. Only good people here.' We just experienced the best America has to offer. Thanks to everyone in Smiley's and the Shamrock who helped me. We'll be back to see you!More

This is a favorite stop for us when snowmobiling. Bloody Mary's are great, staff is friendly to all, food is good and prices are reasonable.

My friend and I once again stopped in to the warmth and fuzzy greetings and had a bloody Mary and a beer. We also had an order of Nachos with cheese, sliced olives, onions, and melted cheese to nibble on. In addition we had three...toppings we could (and did) add to the Nachos - salsa, Jalapeno slices, and ranch dressing. It being "off season" the bar is almost always full, which says a lot about the operation as a whole.More

Fair food. No atmosphere. Not a great representation of Lake Tomahawk food. Burger joint Not much more to say.

Stopped in last night as our regular haunt was busy. Judy was a nice bar tender and the owner very friendly. Nice bar and very good bar food. Would go back with a purpose next time.
