I have not had a meal here, but visited for drinks and apps? Their beer selection is tasty. They allow you to sample the beer before ordering a full glass, which is awesome. My favorite thing here so far are the soft pretzels with their own homemade beer mustard. The bomb!

Great menu, good beer. It was a weeknight so the upper bar was closed. Service was a little slow but overall a good experience, would go back.

Always packed. Excellent menu. My favorite is their Cobb Salad. And their beer cheese soup. Excellent service and a well seasoned staff. Upstairs music is a treat. Especially when Don Penfield is on the piano. You won't regret a stop here.

Had dinner on a Sunday night, dinning room was warm and inviting, we were seated quickly. Service was slow even though there were empty tables around us. Menu selection was limited and the food was average, not what I expected based on the ad in the local restaurant guide. The beer on tap was good.

Food at Minocqua Brewing was decent, but the wait was very long even for our drinks. The ale and smoked gouda soup was good. They have quite a selection of brews and if you are looking for vegetarian, they have choices.

Great food and drinks with a great view. Waitress was very good at her job! Old fashions were kind of pricey, but very good.

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.
