This is one of the nicest places we have found on our trip to the Minocqua area to take our dog. They have outdoor tables and service, and dogs are welcome. When we travel with our pet, it is hard to find places that are so accommodating. We really appreciate it! Good walleye bites and cheese curds!

We stop here for lunch every year when we return to Minocqua. We were not disappointed again this year. Bloody Marys have gone up in price a little but they are almost a meal and very good size - still a deal. We shared a pulled pork with waffle fries and it was more than enough for two people. We...

Busser provided more service than our actual waitress. Only few tables, staff standing out back smoking while we looked for someone to pay the bill. Barely saw waitress, had to ask other staff to get her when we needed anything. Food was okay, way overpriced for quality and service. Charged ridiculous upcharges for anything but a burger and bun, including... More

Excellent location with a lot of outdoor space. The menu is much more healthy and varied than most bar menus. Lots of choices for picky children as well as foodie adults. I would definitely come here again with my family of four.

We found this place using the trip advisor app while looking for a lunch spot and glad we did. The patio on the lake is fantastic. Food was great, good service & we had a good time while we were there. Will definitely be back when we visit the area again.

I have been here for lunch many times over the years and you just can't beat the fun, casual atmosphere. Right on Lake a Tomahawk. Has terrific food. Love their raspberry lemonade. They have fun games for the kids outside. Just dont go when you are in a hurry because the wait for food was always 45-60 mind every time... More

It is fun to boat over to the Lakeside Grill, find a place to dock and sit at a picnic table outside by the water. The atmosphere keeps bringing us back, even though the menu is basic and the food is average. But they do have Stella Artois and Spotted Cow on draft, which goes well with the fried cheese... More

Every time my husband and I visit this area we HAVE to go to lakeside. The food is consistently good, service and drinks are great as well. Try the girl scout mint cookie drink. That will be your new after dinner drink. Also while you wait you can master your craft in bags.

The staff was actually friendly and attentive. 1st time for that and we end up here every year as it is pretty much the only restaurant on Lake tomahawk. The food was good and actually came in a reasonable amount of time. Again a 1st for this restaurant. Hopefully this improvement lasts as it was a pleasant surprise this year

We went here because it was the only place around where the dog was welcome despite there being numerous outdoor dining places in the area. It was a desperation move that paid off. They were very busy and had a long wait, so don't come here if you're in a rush. However, if you have time and the weather is... More
