Such a pretty comfy place, both outside and in. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable. Our meals? Wow! I'd come every week if I could. Thank you for choosing Rhinelander as your home.

Came for the date night special with my wife. Started off with the crustini for an appetizer, then lobster bisque soup, then the main dish’s was Marcella filet and the blackened salmon. All had amazing flavors. Tonight’s special is buy one get one 1/2 off...on Thursday’s! You should definitely try this place!!More

1st time here and we are impressed. The tomato basil soup was probably the best I have ever had. The dish of the day steak pizzaioli was amazing! Never had filet with red sauce! Surprisingly it was delicious! So many different flavors! The chicken Piccata...was very good too! The restaurant is very pretty inside! I will be back soon!💕More

We were greeted by staff. Had great friendly service. I had shrimp scampi it was outstanding. Hubby had scallops over risotto, it also was delicious. Had cream potato bacon soup, split a salad. Food was top notch. And it was not expensive. $2o/ plate. We...love this restaurant...More

Went here for a celebration dinner at 6:30 on a Friday night. Three of the 15 main menu items are various versions of pizza. Special was scallops. I ordered the scallops and my husband looked at the very limited menu and decided on pizza. They...were out of all three pizzas! Scallops were pretty good but I heard the waitress telling another table that they only had 2 scallops dinners left - at 6:30 on a Friday night? And out of all pizzas? At another table I heard a customer told that they were now out of tuna! That left a few dinner salads, three chicken dishes and an expensive filet. Speaking of salads, my dinner came with one but they only had ranch dressing, plus a few balsamic and vinegar variations. Asked for bread - they don't do bread. Jug of water was placed on the table but waitress did not pour it - glasses remained upside down until we poured our own. When I saw the bartender squirting canned whipped cream on a dessert, that was enough for me. House is beautiful inside and out. My suggestion would be to dim the beautiful chandeliers as the evening darkened and light the stunning candlelit lamps everywhere, not just where there were diners - which were few in number for a Friday night. So, so, so disappointed, especially after reading an article about the women who transformed this house. If you go, maybe you should call first to see what food is left to dine on!More

Went to Davenport house on a spur of the moment to have dinner. It was date night so there was a discount on an appetizer or % off on one dinner entree. I had the special shrimp alfredo. It was fantastic and the sauce was...not heavy, shrimp cooked perfectly and sweet!! Staff were very friendly and attentive.More

I’ve been to this restaurant multiple times. The service is inconsistent but the food is tasty and the ambiance is lovely. I’m never sure of the hours but I notice they have a website so I will check there before I go. I haven’t been...there in several months so this review may not be up to date.More

We went there because many raved about the restaurant. We were not served our salad. The food portions were in a size of a soup bowl and it was quite expensive. The rolls were the size of golf balls! The service was mediocre at best....I could deal with mediocre food but the service should be excellent.More

We have eaten here multiple multiple times Never had the same consistency of food I’ve talk to the owner multiple multiple times about the issues with the wait staff over indulging information against the owner. up charges for everything and not noted before the bill...emailed the owner personally to let them know our discretion of the restaurant never received an email back very very poor communication Very sad because it is a very beautiful place. Would highly recommend going for supper to brown 151 over this place SadMore
