The bar and restaurants are attractively located on a lake. If you're just having one of their microbrews, I suggest the upstairs bar and taking your drink to the lovely sitting area overlooking the lake. The porter I had was just OK - not much body or sweetness. There is a restaurant downstairs.

We were there about 5:00 on a Tuesday. We were lucky to get a table with a view of the lake. I ordered the fish and chips. It was good, nothing special. My husband ordered the chicken. Again, it was good. Our negative was that our server never informed us of any "specials". We overheard another server tell other guests... More

Reuben sandwich served open faced on ciabatta bread? Chicken wings microwaved? I realize it's not peak season but it's a big weekend for fall color. Go someplace else. The current beers were mostly dark and not very good. There are many options in town and while this is brewery I'd go to one of the other establishments that have a... More

We're sorry to hear of your experience. Yes, we do serve our Rueben in a non-traditional fashion, open-faced on Ciabatta. While we understand it's not the same Rueben you can get at every other restaurant, we try to do something different, yet tasteful. One thing we can guarantee is that our wings are not microwaved. Was this a comment made... More

My family had supper here and enjoyed it. They offer turkey burgers as an alternative to hamburgers and I had one with barbecue sauce and onions, it was very good. My husband had steak and shrimp and also enjoyed his meal.

As soon as we arrived I asked the hostess if they had a gluten free food menu. No... but she said I could eat a lunch salad and showed me the menu. We were seated and our server brought us menus and water. I told her that I knew I'd want the Cobb salad as I'm gluten intolerant. She told... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant and leave a few comments on your experience. First off, we do care. And if that was not portrayed we fell short. We do understand that with people's change in dietary habits, we too need to make adjustments and are constantly working on ways to make our kitchen more gluten-friendly.... More

I want to love this place, but the food is pretty average. I had shrimp and it was overdone. My husband had a burger and said it was OK. Service was good.

Thanks for the time to review our establishment. We wish your meal would have been prepared better. Please, don't ever hesitate to ask if we can prepare it differently should something come out not cooked to your desire. Shrimp especially are an easy fix. Thank you again for taking the time to drop a review. Sincerely, Douglas Etten Marketing, MBC More

First time there~Husband had prime rib dinner, with garlic mashed taters-wow! I had the 12 shrimp dinner, slaw, and garlic mashed~$12.00-very reasonable. Prime a bit more, but worth every penny. Beer was great! I had Whitey's Wheat, and hubby had Bear Naked Brown, both good choices. Give it a try!

I understand it's a local brewery but wish they offered other choices as well. Food is good but would be nice to have more dinner options. Burgers were overcooked from what was ordered and pretty dry. Customer service is usually good. Last time a new girl from out of town served us and she was very nice and patient with... More

Description
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.
