First, I would like to say that my family and I have frequently stopped at your establishment to enjoy a bite to eat and often have a few drinks. Never have we had an experience as we did on Oct 27th. We witnessed a loud,...obnoxious and to say the least an uneducated individual who spoke of our race in a demeaning manner. He said” something along the lines “we have no walleyes because of the Muskies and those Indians”. How ignorant this poor man must be. Secondly, We are very proud Native Americans and exercise the rights we have as were established in the treaties many years ago. I am appalled and quite frankly embarrassed for this man to know that there are still these racist individuals among us. He should really try and seek some knowledge and educate himself on how we from lac du flambeau replenish those lakes. I’m sorry that lil 7 year old girl had to witness such horrid remarks. A racist is a learned behavior and he was certainly expressing that it was ok to speak in the manner he did , right in front of her. It was not the swear words that were spoken that were harmful to her ears but rather the words that came out of his mouth. The bartender said oh you must be mistaken, assuming I (we) misunderstood what this man said. He knew exactly what he said as he tried to apologize, proof and admission of guilt. I will apologize for the lil mess we made. Just know that We will be spreading the word of the incident we experienced.More

We went for the all you could eat Friday fish and fried chicken, $9.99 on the website. The place was packed so we waited at the bar and ordered iced tea while we waited for a table. There was one bartender and one waitress, both...were swamped. When we got a table we asked the waitress for more tea and suggested she bring a pitcher since she was busy as it would free up refilling our glasses. She did and refilled the pitcher never saw on the menu or posted anywhere in the pub drink costs, figured tea was like water free refills. When the ticket came we were surprised to see that the pitchers of tea were $5.75 each. They charged us $2.25 for each glass of tea which is reasonable, when we questioned the cost were told tea wasn't free refills, only bar fountain soda was. The food was okay, two pieces of cod and chicken, applesauce and potato. Thought all three of the soups of the day were included, but we were charged for the cheddar cauliflower soup, not the beef barley. The customer service needs work. Prices need to be posted.More

Great place to stop for a bite to eat and a cold beer or other beverage. There's a good selection of Pub Grub on the menu with Daily Specials and of course a Friday Fish Fry. We had the Olive Burger & the Fried Cod...Sandwich, both were very good. The daily special was Mexican Food. Saw many order a LARGE Burrito and they seemed to be enjoying them. Food & Beverage prices are very reasonable. There are many drink specials too. The service was very friendly. Well worth a stop if you find yourself in Mercer.More

We had gone there for years...more than 35-years. Confronted by the owner's husband over parking. We parked there because we were in your restaurant and spent over $200....limit your drinking....no longer our favorite place for a burger!

We ate at the Pub Friday evening, June 8,2018. We arrived about 4:45 p.m., and by 5:00 p.m. the place was packed. Lots of locals, which is always a sign that the food is good. Even with the crowd, the service was excellent. Plus, the...prices are very reasonable. I had the baked cod which was excellent.More

When I first visited, the realtor suggested this place. Every person I ran into said it was their favorite fried chicken. Even on Fish Friday, when my husband gets the fish (he says it’s great) I still get the chicken. The slaw is slightly sweet...and fries are crispy. They have my favorite Hefe, Bluemoon too! The girls are always friendly and are always have time to answer your questions and see how you are doing. This so far the cleanest pub I have been to in town as well.More

Casual comfortable pub, great friendly service and exceptional food. Oh, and reasonable prices. Have your soup and burger with a beer or ice tea or soda. Wednesday was all you can eat smelt but I barely finished my first serving. And it was luscious. My...husband had all you can eat fried chicken ( that’s an everyday special) and it was moist and delicious. If you’re in Mercer don’t miss Around the Corner.More
