Stopped for lunch. Really enjoyed the space and the other regular customers. Michele behind the bar was great. The Guinness stew was so good, the soda bread was fantastic, and they had Hellcat Maggie Irish whiskey! What a great time; hope we can stop in...More

This is one of the best places in Manitowish Waters. Irish Fest was a blast. Food is always terrific. The owner is one of the nicest people you will meet. Great place for the whole family.

Sometimes they’re good, but not this week. Server forgot the appetizer, served a Rubin instead of corned beef and cheese, corned beef old and dry, and potato pancakes cold and leathery. Not a reason to go back.

Been a few times now. We really like the Ruebens-the meat they use is not cheap sandwich meat that you find in some places. The potato salad is homemade which is nice. Serving sizes are generous. Need to try something else on the menu but...More
