We stopped here for lunch after visiting Cave of the Mounds. We had four adults and five children. We were sat right away and had amazing food. This place was great, I can't wait to go back for another visit!

My husband had the pasta special which was wonderful. I had french dip and coleslaw. Not thrilled with either one. Didn’t like the coleslaw at all and I’ve had better french dip sandwiches. The meat tasted a little funky. Decor is great and service was...More

Oh man, get the walleye sandwich. Easily one of the best pieces of walleye I have ever had. They brew their own beer here also and have bottles to go and growlers to go. They also make their own root beer which was really good...More

Absolutely - we were there this summer with our 8, 6 and 1 year old children and we all enjoyed it. Nice pub vibe - with a moderate noise level that allows children to be children and adults enjoy their food. High chairs... More
