Had not been in the northwoods for a few years. Naturally, had to include the stag in our return plans. The meal remains fabulous. Iceberg lettuce chilled to perfection. Steaks, fish, and chicken as tasty as ever complimented by grilled onions and mushrooms. Bottom line: still the best.

The service was so poor that the waitresses were arguing in front of customers about who would not work a table. It was embarrassing to watch. My smoked Pork Chops were very good. My baked potato had a large grub in it and was disgusting.

Generally enjoyed our visit, service was good...our waitress Rose was excellent...salad and homemade dressin very good...dinner rolls awful, tasted like three week old hamburger buns...our dinner selection , cod dinner was great, ribeye was Ok, ( I suggest upgrading the meat especially for the price charged)...one major concern is how the chefs were handling food...fresh seafood and meat were handled...

I went to this eatery on a Saturday evening with my husband and parents (they had been there before many times going back 30 years, husband and I had not been before). Bar opens at 4:30pm but they do not start serving food and seating people in the dining room until 5pm. The menu is one page, mostly different kinds... More

Very good food. Severely understaffed on a busy Tuesday night. Not the most friendly staff. Definitely changed

Anyone can claim to be a steakhouse but this place delivers. They have a narrow and focused menu and a service approach that is formulaic, which works to everyone's advantage provided you want a meal that focuses on the delivery of a great piece of grilled meat. The real charcoal grill in plain sight is where the magic happens. Prices... More

This is a no frills watch your steak grill restaurant. The salad is a delight with flavorful salad dressings. You get a giant baked potato and your steak done the way you like it. Can't miss the White Stag outside.

It was snowing so we were the only customers in the place besides two men at the bar that left shortly thereafter. The waitress was pleasant and attentive. Food was average. The swordfish was very good. Funny to order in the Northwoods but very good. The chicken with garlic was good. My steak was a bit more fatty than expected... More
