This is one of my favorites, the food is always great. I'm not a beer drinker but their wine is awesome! Service is excellent too!

I had the turkey burger with sweet potato fries. I like that option for the type of meat you can get for burgers!

Their only gluten-free carb was bagged potato chips. Unbelievable. Other than that, food was good. I had a turkey burger with olive tapenade and feta—and bagged potato chips. My husband’s beer-battered fried mushrooms were good; fish and chips good (tasted like fresh fish even though waitress said all their fish was frozen). Cheerful, knowledgeable waitress.

For many years I have frequented the Brewing Company and never had a bad experience until a few weeks ago. I was surprised to see the menu was completely different with my favorite item - the tuna steak - no longer on the menu. Dinner selections were few but there were a lot of sandwich options. I ordered a steak,... More

I have had many great lunches here. I'm a big fan of their hummus with tomatoes and olives, the 'ABLT' and mushroom soup. I have yet to find a beer that blows me away and their chili was forgettable. The view in the back is nice and the place is always clean.

We had a party of 6 on New Years Eve. They had a full menu and we all loved that. We ordered appetizers which were delicious. We all ordered our main meal and didn't wait along time for it to arrive. Everyone was happy with our food and also the ones who had beer enjoyed the choices. Great place to... More

I typically give reviews that are positive in nature, if deserving and let the less than positive ones off, but in this case I can't let this pass. I can't really even give this place one star although TA requires it. I can't even rate the Minocqua Brewing Company because we ( two families with kids and a total of... More

We had a disappointing experience. Very slow service, with few check ins from out waitstaff. Our food took over an hour to get. The portions are very small. When it came time for the bill....that also took a great deal of time. We pass this location many times a year, we will not return!

We have visited this location on past trips to Minocqua and have had good experiences. This trip not so lucky. We tried to go on a Friday night and the kitchen was closed already. Since there weren't many restaurants open our options were limited so we went back Saturday night this time at 7pm. The menu was disappointing and small,... More

This place has it all! We were greeted by the owner, the hostess was fun and playful, and our waitress was very nice, helpful, and knowledgeable. The food is fantastic, and the specialty beers were all fun to sample! Go here!

We are a Wisconsin microbrewery and restaurant located in downtown Minocqua. We offer a variety of different ales, trending from light and easy-drinking, smooth amber styles and the rotating darks. Always 6-8 different craft beers on tap at all times. We are not a fine dining restaurant, but offer up our own twist on American classics and evening entrees after 4:30 p.M. Live Music every Friday and Saturday in our upstairs lounge. If you are coming onto the island from the north, we are on east side of Hwy. 51 South, next to Torpy Park. We do have on site parking, while also being close in proximity to downtown parking lots. From the lake, we are in what is known as "Save More Bay." Our docks are capable of handling four-to-six watercraft depending on size.
