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!

I would eat here again anytime, and recommend it to others. It is worth a wait to get a window table, nice view of lawn, trees and the lake. I had the veggie burger, hand crafted black bean and wild rice mixture, very good. Avocado, tomato, sprouts and a nice ciabatta bun. Add sweet potato fries, they're great. My friends... More

Went there to listen to a singer but had dinner before. We didn't have reservations (not sure if they take reservations) so we had to wait about 20 min to get a table. The service was very good and the food was great. They have a great selection of beers. After dinner we went up stairs to the bar to... More

Our party of 6 stopped in for dinner on a Friday night. Nice place, clean and friendly enough staff. The food was average, a little expensive in my opinion. We ordered the "Bavarian" pretzel for an appetizer. It was a concession stand hot pretzel, very disappointing. There were some burgers, chicken salad sandwiches and a Ruben ordered. All were good,...

Great beer. Food is overpriced for what it is. They have open mic night every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month, which we didn't discover until we got there. Cubs are in the World Series and they took away the big screen they were playing the game on away during the second inning so some guy could play his... More

Sorry for taking the big screen away ... Hopefully they still have the 50-inch flat screen above the fireplace on with the game airing. Obviously we have to try and stay consistent with events such as Open Mic Night. Sorry we chased you guys away with the live music. We hope we'll see you again. Douglas Etten Marketing More

Great beer, great food, and great atmosphere. There are lots of choices for restaurants and pubs in the area - this a one of the good ones!

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.
